Hi, Everyone! I’d love to help out with the odd evening, and weekends upon request! I also have one day per week where I can help all day. This is usually Mondays. I’d love to book all Mondays for the next 6 weeks from 7th Jan. Thanks for your patience while I attempt to respond to everyone as soon as possible. In past roles, I have been a casual educator and a full time Preschool teacher. I am now working full time Tues-Friday as Co-Director & Educational Leader for a Family-Owned “Long daycare” in Mosman. I was born & raised in California ✌🏽️ and have been in Oz since May 2013. I'm outgoing, optimistic, and love eating healthy and being active. I ride my bike everywhere (when it’s warm). I also love to sing and dance, with or without an audience, and I can whistle like the birds in Snow White. I'm outdoorsy and drawn to water. I am interested in looking after children from all backgrounds, all ages. I have unique experience with every age + development stage. I'm a flexible and understanding person and I value building relationships with children and their families. Please get in touch via this site with any questions. I look forward to learning about your busy family! :) x

Special Needs Experience

Cousin with FAS/ADHD, worked with clients via Rozelle Neighbourhood Centre for 6 months, volunteered and sang Christmas carols with children with Downs Syndrome; I care for all children! Very patient and flexible, and I believe in great communication and collaboration with parents.

Childcare Experience

I give every child the space to finish their thoughts and feel supported, and engage them in an age-appropriate way, based on their interests. See below: Babysitting has always been fun for me. I've earned money helping families since age 12 and have been a nanny in London & Bay of Islands, NZ: bath time, reading, bedtime, games, songs, light tidying and meal prep. *One of my clients in London, age 6, learned all the words to "Build Me Up Buttercup" and she and I did a dance routine for the family before Christmas, with her artistic direction of course :) Experience as a recreational swim coach, private and group swim lesson instructor, and mothers helper during pregnancy and first few years. Caring nature but can be firm when needed with the cheeky ones. I have been CPR/First Aid trained as a lifeguard, and have done first aid in Sydney. I keep things fun and can be very musical & artistic. Mostly I let the child tell me what they enjoy and get to know them as humans! For the younger ones, we can explore their interests together and keep communication open :) WWCC as shown on this site! CPR updated 12/11 & First aid full course completed September 2018! **Please send me a message to discuss rates, but if I have applied for the Job, then I accept the payment you have offered for that particular evening :)** $30/hr whilst I’m studying! Finish in October. ****Group rates to be discussed based on ages and activities required!** Best wishes and thanks for reading! X
