Nanny
Employer: Karen Bowers & Scott Carroll
Date Commenced: February 2015
Date Finished: December 2019

Duties and Responsibilities:

Sole charge of two boys, one 6 years old, one 3.5 years, two days per week.

  • Maintain sleep / feeding routine, bottle changing, feeding.
  • Encourage age-appropriate activities – Little Kicks, Jim-Jam music class, puzzles, Bonjour Bebe (French) at Rozelle and French conversation practice at home.

  • Develop fine motor skills - craft activities, playdoh, box construction.

Henry has recently turned six and I have been looking after him and his younger brother, Hugo, who is now three and a half years old from the age of 10 months of age. I have been helping the Carroll family to care for and educate their boys and have shared many wonderful experiences with them throughout their early years.

As a teacher, I am particularly interested in building confidence in young children and in developing their language skills through conversation and role-playing exercises. I also endeavour to develop their fine-motor skills through creative play such as painting, model- making and playdoh.

I have a keen interest in French and Art and incorporate these skills in daily routines.

I have taken both Hugo and Henry to many activities, including park visits, French classes, music classes, Gymbaroo, Little Kicks, gymnastics, soccer, swimming and many concerts, proms and puppet shows.

I have enjoyed reading stories as a daily activity, played age-appropriate games, completed puzzles and constructed duplo and lego building activities with the boys.

Hugo started pre-school in 2020 and I left my role with the Carroll family in December 2019 after an enjoyable five years with them, prior to relocating to Leura in January 2020.
