My name is Natalie and I am a reliable and professional Nanny with more than five years of experience in childcare. I love being part of a family dynamicóit brings out the best in me.
Hereís a little bit about me: I was studying at University to be an English high school teacher and working part-time as a teacher in an after-school Speech and Drama studio when a unique experience was offered to me. I accepted the position as a live-in Governess on a farm in rural Australia for a year, where I was responsible for teaching and caring for two primary school students (G7 and B5). At times, I was their sole carer, as their parents needed to travel for their farm work. It was then I discovered my passion for childcare.
I have been lucky enough to work with three families since then and acquired a lot of experience in both live-in and live-out situations. I have helped care for an older boy with special needs (B11) and his grandmother while the father of the family needed to travel for work, and more recently I provided afterschool care and tutoring for two children from another family (G5 and B8).
For almost two years now, Iíve been caring full-time for two active and imaginative boys (2 and 4) and Iíve loved every second of it. This job also included before and after school care of their older siblings (G9 and B11), as well as full time care of all the kids in the school holidays. However, my current position is coming to a close due to the fact that the younger boys have become more involved at pre-school.
Iíve always been drawn to working with kidsóI loved teaching classes in an after-school Speech and Drama Studio (for students from Year One through to Year Ten). I have also been involved in extensive volunteer work with the Maitland-Newcastle St Vincent de Paul Society Youth, including Buddyís Days and Kidís Camp. I have had lots of fun working with children from a wide range of backgrounds.
I like to keep fit and I am a non-smoker. I have my driverís license, with a clean record and a car. I have my First Aid Certificate, including CPR. I have a Police Clearance and Working with Children Check, and I plan on completing my Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care by the end of this year.
