Lara's Description

I am an American citizen who has been living in Sydney for 3 years. I am on my spouses work sponsored visa, and we plan on living in Sydney indefinitely (visa is good for 3 years).

I have babysat and participated in children programs for over ten years. Experience includes:

-Carer in children programs for various churches in the US, from 6 month to preschool age
-Private babysitting, including children with special needs and infants
-Camp Counselor, where I cared and supervised for year 1 to 4 girls overnight, as well as taught and assisted activities geared for year 1 to 6
-Early childhood volunteer and team leader at Hillsong Church in Waterloo. This requires having a background check and interview done. I oversee three early childhood weekend programs, leading teams of four people for each program. I also create program material for events throughout the year--including crafts, imaginative play, etc.

I prefer a low-media approach to child caring, instead offering your child imaginative play, messy play, crafts, time outdoors, and educational outings. I believe in being intentional with my interactions with your children, choosing my words and reactions carefully so I am helping them become confident, kind, healthy individuals. I believe in respecting them, validating their feelings, and being positive, while still maintaining firm boundaries.

I have taken several first aid classes, although the certifications have since expired.
I can obtain a working with children check or become a registered carer with the family assistance office if necessary.

I am looking for a family with no more then three children, aged newborn to kindergarten. I am looking for a job that will be consistent from week to week, and am willing to work 1 to 4 days a week.
