Hello families, I have 19 years experience working with children in schools as a qualified primary school teacher. The last 4 years I have worked in a kindy as a teacher assistant. I have loved the move from a more academic to a more maternal, nurturing role with young children. This is why it seems natural to move into a nanny role. I have formed such close relationships with families over the years and I would love to be part of one special one. I am also heavily involved in classical ballet and am looking for work that is less 9-5, 5 days a week and more flexible. I am creative, energetic and empathetic. I understand how important it is for you to find the best fit for your family - your children or child. They are your world and I completely understand that. Working with children is all I have ever wanted to do and I hope that I can be the person you are looking for. I have my own car and current police and working with children checks. I also updated my First Aid training earlier this year.
5 families in your area recommended Catherine...
"Catherine babysat our 2 and a half year old daughter on Saturday and she is absolutely the kind of person you'd want to take care of your child(ren). Catherine is a very warm person, she was punctual and thorough (had check-lists to make sure she had everything she needed) and even went as far as arranging to meet our daughter the day before so that she would feel more comfortable the next day. They had an awesome day together and our daughter is still talking about her 2 days later. 100% recommend Catherine and we will definitely be hiring her again in the future. "
From Tim - Forrestville
"Catherine was amazing with our 2 girls and her willingness to meet them beforehand to know their interests, they loved her company. Catherine is very kind, caring, punctual and makes extra effort to relate to the kids to be happy. Great communication and we are looking forward to seeing Catherine again. Catherine provides documents of credentials/experience and screening checks. 5 stars 😁"
From Elizabeth - Melrose Park
"Catherine was a breath of fresh air. She was very professional and my 8yo boy was immediately comfortable with her. He enjoyed monopoly with her and she kept me informed throughout. His only complaint was she made him brush his teeth! #winning"
From Tennille - Black Forest
"Catherine is outstanding. My second child felt nervous and worried to have a stranger look after her. The nerves went the second they were introduced. I could feel immediately my children were at ease. Xx"
From Caroline - Hyde Park
"Second time Catherine has sat DS9. Another successful evening. Highly recommend."
