Ellie's Description

*I currently work as a bartender/waitress 3/4 nights a week (usually weekends). I am mainly looking for a nannying day job (6hrs+ per day, preferably 1-3 days a week), not just before and after school care as I would like my days to be filled. At the moment I have availability Monday-Friday, and once I have found the right job, I will be changing my availability with my other job.

I finished at Wesley College in 2014. I have around 4 years of experience working with children, starting off with occasional babysitting whilst at school, then over the last 2 and a half years I have done a mixture of before and after school care and also worked full time Monday-Friday. I have done a lot of work with children with disabilities and I one day hope to study a Bachelor of Primary Education as that is where my heart lies.
Iím looking for a nannying position, as I love children. I did work experience at my local primary school, Glen Iris Primary, working with kids between the ages of 5 and 10 (including a beautiful 6 year old boy with Down syndrome), and have also spend numerous weeks over the last 4 years helping in the classroom during my holiday breaks and before primary finished. I have also completed placement at Papilio Early Learning Centre in Ashburton, working in the Toddler and Pre Kinder rooms.
I have experience nannying/babysitting a range of different aged children, between the ages of 2 and 14. My first babysitting job involved two girls, aged 8 and 12, over the period of 3 years (when needed), mainly on weekends during my last few years of High School. The 8 year old girl, Georgie, has autism. I then worked for a family with two kids, aged 5 and 7. The 5 year old boy, Angus, has autism, and part of my role involved attending kinder 3 days a week as an aid, watching over him and also playing with him and the other kids in his group. Although this job gave me great experience, the 45 hours per week became too demanding at the age of 18. My last job was working for the most beautiful family with three children aged 5, 9 and 11.
I have experience doing the morning and after school routine, involving making breakfast, packing school lunches and cooking dinners. I enjoy playing with kids and doing all sorts of different activities, whether it's going to the park, or doing some arts and crafts inside. I am fun and bubbly, with the energy of a 4 year old, so I'll be sure to tire your kids out! I'm organised and dependable, and believe communication is very important for every aspect of development in children. I have a warm and loving nature, along with confidence, so your children will feel safe in my care! I am a fast learner and always have been, so taking on any new tasks is no problem for me. Homework is always a must, and will be completed with fun alongside of it, to make it seem more interesting. Although I am a very happy and fun person, I know when discipline is needed. Looking after children with autism and also growing up in a house with an autistic brother, I am well aware of time and structure.
I have my driverís license and my own car, I have a Working with Childrenís check, Police check and first aid certificate, and am happy to get anything else required. I would be more than happy to do some house work and cooking. If offered a position, I would be 100 percent committed, with time and also with the development of your children. I am a smoker, but I have never nor will I ever smoke with children in my care.
Any other questions, such as references (including parents of children I have looked after) feel free to email me.

Look forward to hearing from you!
