Hello Mums, Dads and Care Givers, l'm a local lady of 25 years in the Northern beaches and cared for many little ones here during this time. I am a fully qualified Early Learning Educator with lnclusion Support and TEFL Teacher (Teach English as a Foreign Language). Caring for children is my love and passion. It's my pleasure to assist Babies through their milestones to become strong, independent Toddlers. The journey continues through play based learning, where there are a few boundaries but always exciting and fun. Our tweens and teens is also a precious time where l remain connected and listen very carefully to learn a thing or two. Whatever the case may be, l am here as an extention of you. Love my job, the parents l work with and the babies l have watched grow up to be strong independent adults. Worked in Primary schools for 4 years in Thailand, Brazil for 6 months and as a Nanny in the U.K. for 6 months, caring for a New born, 5 and 7 year old family of boys. Have First Aid, CPR, Anaphylaxis and Asthma Management, Blue Card, Clean Current Police Check. If you feel like a well deserved break, a date night, weekend away or a few hours to yourself and feel l could assist, please give me a tingle and let's talk... soon!

Childcare Experience

I have worked in an Early Learning Centre for 5 years. While in the nursery, my time was building trust with new born babies, by nurturing and understanding what their needs were. Sometimes mums would come in to breast feed or l would prepare bottles, follow their routine for sleep, feeding, playing and exposing them to age appropriate experiences and lots of chatting with them and cuddles of course. Assisting babies through their milestones and transitioning into the Toddlers room, l set up age appropriate activities, talking with and encouraging children through play based learning. This is where toddlers begin to interact at a more sociable level at times with intervened educator assistance. More emphasis is put into playbased learning and observing and interacting to assist by role modeling scenarios. The older the children became, the more realistic and challenging their toys, books, equipment, room setting etc adjusted. Over the past 2 years, l have been Nannying for two children, a little girl 4mths and brother 2 years of age for working parents. The children are now 21 months and 4 years of age and now going to Family Day Care 2 days a week. My role now is to arrive and give them breakfast, prepare healthy meals for their breaks during the day, assist the children in health and hygiene while getting ready, assist in dressing and drop them off to Day Care. I also pick them up from Day Care, prepare snacks on arrival home, sit and talk with the children while eating. I prepare age appropriate educational activities for the children and role model, assist and discuss the activities with them. Most evenings l prepare dinner while supervising the children. This position has now become a casual position when needed and date nights etc. One or two days a week l nanny for a 7.5 mth old baby and have cared for her since she was 4mths old. The parents have entrusted me to care for her overnight when working away.
