About Me...

I have recently moved to Bundanoon with my fiancé and 7 month old puppy. Whilst I do not have childcare qualifications I have a current working with childrens check, seven years experience working with children in a therapeutic setting and five years experience working with children in educational settings (predominantly day care, after school care and through the National Dinosaur Museum). During COVID I took on responsibilities of home-schooling my nephew for 5 weeks, in that time we went fishing and swimming daily, started a vegetable garden, made lego sculptures, created our own mathematic games, posted 3 youtube craft videos a week and wrote a book complete with colourful pictures. 
 
I am a responsible, approachable and reliable person with a passion for wellbeing and children. I am a good cook and entertainer. I have many crafts under my belt and have no doubt I could keep your children healthy, happy and stimulated. I have a current/full NSW drivers’ licence, Working With Children Check (expires 2021) and a New Zealand First Aid Certificate (expires 2021).
