About Me...

I am a childcare professional with more than 20 years experience working with children from infancy to 12 years of age in a variety of home settings. I am also a mother of 2 teenage boys. I am highly organised and adept in managing hectic schedules as well as adhering to a kind and compassionate approach when dealing with disciplinary issues. I am an independent person who takes initiative in creating child friendly activities. I handle pressure well and have a bright and happy disposition. In the period between the years 2000 and 2008 I took time off from childcare work to care for my 2 boys. I absolutely love my job and find looking after children incredibly rewarding.
