Hi family!!! I am a professional babysitter from Argentina. I have completed a bachelor degree in psychology. In order to get my Bachelor’s degree, I was required to go through different kinds of internship that I undertook in different institutions dedicated to childcare. Apart from that, I have over 8 years of experience in baby sitting. I started when I was only 16 and I have been doing it on and off for all my life. The range of age of children I have taken care of is between 4 months and 7 years old. I consider myself as a very intuitive person, specially with kids. I just feel comfortable around them, and I feel like it is easy for me to conect with them. This has been like this all my life, since I was a kid myself, and I asked my mather's friends if I could babysit their younger kids. I deeply believe in creating a strong bond based in good communication. Being there for the kid, listening and observing their behaviour so we can understand their needs and help/guide the child to satisfy them. I am currently babysitting a 5 months old baby in Melbourne, so I have references in town. My intention is to stay in Melbourne for at least one year, so I would like to find a family to work for a long period. I can also do casual babysittings. I hold a WWCC, police chek and a firts aid certificate provided by St John. If you wish to meet me, I would be happy to arrange a meeting. Thank you! Federica

Special Needs Experience

In order to get my Bachelor’s degree, I was required to go through an internship that I undertook in a school for children with hearing disabilities. It is a school located in a very economically deprived suburb. My duties and challenges consisted of providing support and advice to parents about how to set limits and also how to support their kids when they had a behavior breakdown. When I was 17 years old, during my high school internship I assisted different professionals (speech pathologists, occupational therapists, physical therapists) in their daily activities, in a center dedicated to children from 0 to 10 years old who suffered different syndromes, disorders, and pathologies such as down syndrome, cerebral palsy, microcephaly, etc. The goal was to help these children to have a life as independent, productive and satisfying as possible. This experiences taught me to be patient and emphatic, and they helped me to grow as a person.

"My boys really enjoyed playing with Federica. She arrived early, was easy to communicate with and was immediately comfortable with the kids. She engaged them with art activities and games in the backyard. We’d happily have her over again. "
