Hi, I'm a young professional who works in the foster care sector. I love spending time with kids and have experience both personally and professionally caring for children of all ages. I was previously a Case Manager and got to spend time with the same children and young people regularly through work. I now work directly with foster carers and miss the fun of hanging out with and getting to know kids. I am looking to connect with local families where I can provide ongoing babysitting and get to know your family although I am also available for one off jobs. As I work full time I am only available evenings and on the weekend. I have my Working with children's check, police check and first aid certificate. If you're looking for a regular babysitter who you can get to know and trust or a casual babysitter for your special evenings out, weekends away or just want some extra help with the kids I would love to speak with you!
I have experience caring for children with complex behavioural issues, disability and have regularly updated first aid training.
I have experience working with children of a variety of ages, with varying needs and diverse backgrounds. Within my role as a Social Worker I have experience caring for children with complex needs including behavioral issues, developmental delay, and autism. I have experience working with Disability Services Australia and have volunteered with Australian Refugee Volunteers, planning fun days out for refugee children in the community. I have also spent time living and working in Alice Springs with children in residential care.
I have a Bachelor of Social Work and a Bachelor of Arts majoring in Philosophy. I enjoy learning and am about to undergo tutoring training with The Pyjama Foundation, a volunteer organisation providing tutoring for children in foster care.
