“Whilst travelling and working in Europe and the UK from June 04, I’ve mostly worked as a nanny in the exclusive Austrian Ski Resort of Lech, Voralberg for around 7 months. During this time I cared for over 20 children from different countries around the world including Europe, Italy, Germany, Austria, UK, USA and France. The children cared for overseas and in Australia range from premature babies, through to 14yrs and often have special dietary requirements, strict routines to adhere to, illness’ and the occasional skiing injury that needed special attention overseas. Since arriving back in Sydney in November 2006 I’ve cared for children in Sydney on a part time basis ageing from premi to 14 years. One family in particular has 6 children, therefore, it’s important I can adapt to each child’s needs when required. After leaving Lech and during my time in the UK I was selected to work at a Duchess’ holiday home on the coast of the UK in Cornwall. There were two families living in the home for one week.”
