Hello! I am a Dentistry student at the University of Adelaide and I think children are an absolutely joy to be around! I have a lot of babysitting experience (from ages 2-12). My experience includes after school care, meal times, bed time, chores and organising games and activities. I'm a responsible, trustworthy person and will treat each babysitting session and your house rules seriously; while still being energetic and fun for your child/children as I love to play and want them to have an enjoyable, safe time with me! I am especially good at creative play and make believe! I understand that it is a great responsibility to look after children of any age, but I find it incredibly rewarding and honestly, fun! I would love to be your regular baby sitter and get to know you and your family better! I have a current working with children check, a DCSI police clearance, first aid training and all my vaccinations are up to date in accordance with SAHealth. I am available most of the week and would love to answer any questions you might have. I look forward to hearing from you!
I have been babysitting a primary school aged child regulary (after-school care) this year and have been detailed in following the parent's timetable for their child as well as making sure the child has while they are with me. Last year I did an educational roadtrip of multiple primary schools where we created and lead educational games and activities for children age 5-11 years old to teach them about healthy living. This taught me how to keep children of various age groups in engaged in games. I have previously volunteered in a pre-kindergarten class where I supervised children during classes and lunch time. It taught me the importance of attentive supervision in order to keep the children safe and stay aware of their needs as they are not always able to convey what they require. I have 2 siblings who are 7 and 8 years younger than me. I have helped care for them and played with them since young. When their friends come over I love to get involved too. These experiences playing with them and their friends made me realise how much I enjoyed being able to create fun, imaginative games or other things to do, and the joy of being able to make a child smile.
I have tutored a year 7 student as part of my high school's peer tutoring program. This taught me how to spot the specific areas that my student needed help in. I was then able to find simple ways to explain what they did not understand and create practise assignments to help her improve. I have helped my siblings with their homework. These experiences taught me how to explain concepts in a simple to understand way.
