Chris's Description

Greetings parents,
I'm a father of a 3 year old daughter and 2 boys (9 and10 who are 14 months apart. I'm currently working on Fridays for a family in Fitzroy North caring for 8 and 4 year old boys (I have cared for the youngest since he was 11 weeks old). Their situation has changed as both boys now attend school. All families that I have worked for would be able to provide you with an excellent reference.

A little history about myself; I finished year 12 in 1999 and went on to uni to study computer science which wasn't people orientated enough for me so I deferred for some time. During this break I took up an opportunity to work for Target and through a management traineeship program with them, became a merchandise manager. I worked in this role for 7 years. It was during my time at Target that I met my wife. We have been married for 10 years now and have two beautiful boys aged 5 and 6. We had 2 children within 14 months - our second was born 3 months premature. That first year was really challenging and with a premmie and one year old, I left Target to provide more flexible support to my wife. Since then I had been a full time daddy. Our second son has mild autism and for the first 4 years my wife worked as a nanny and I stayed at home to be a full time daddy. I loved my time at home with my boys but when my wife fell pregnant with our daughter I returned to work; this time as a nanny. While I had been home I completed my Certificate 3 and Diploma in Children's Services, including extensive work experience in childcare centre settings and casual nanny work.

If you love what you do, then it isn't work - and this is why I have pursued formal training to become and early years educator. As you can probably tell, I'm not your average man. I'm very caring, passionate, nurturing, domestic and more than happy to do any jobs in and outside the house alongside caring for children.

I have done many things for the families that i have worked for including: taking children to parks; taking children on trips to zoos, the city etc; washing cars; all aspects of cleaning the house; making beds; doing washing; dog walking; shopping; general repairs; gardening and many many more!

I have the following: - Full licence - Reliable Car - Excellent References - Cert 3 in Children's Services - Diploma of Children's Services - Working with Children's Check - Police Check - First Aid Certificate - Emergency Asthma Certificate - Food Safety/handling Certificate - Management of Anaphylaxis Certificate .
