A Little Bit About Me...


I am a New Zealander looking to become a part of a family as a nanny. I am a qualified nanny having gained my national nanny qualification and I am currently taking a break from my nursing degree. I have a vast amount of experience here in Australia, NZ and overseas. I have had training and experience in supporting in the development of children through play, providing a safe and positive environment and communication with both children and their parents. Through these experiences I have had as a nanny/ (some) childcare center’s, I have gained invaluable experience, knowledge and skills from each family and places as all are unique. I have worked as a solo nanny, mother's help nanny and a combo of both solo/mother's help. My experience is mostly with 5 month old babies to 14 year old children and some new born baby experience as well. I am seeking the opportunity to both share my childcare background and also gain more experience with the right family. I am looking for a full time, live in position asap. My strength & preference is for caring for 3 month olds to 4 yr olds. I am flexible, can adapt to the families routine and boundaries, good team worker who is honest, helpful and caring with good listening skills. I can adapt to change and have a friendly and outgoing nature. I am currently staying in Sydney. I am also willing to move for the right family.

Profile:

An experienced Senior Health Care Assistant, Nanny, waitress and bar person, also experienced in fashion retail who has been able to utilize my skills during my overseas working holiday prior to returning to NZ to further my qualifications.

I have worked previously as a Healthcare Assistant and I possess a natural ability to relate to children of all ages.  I have a friendly and outgoing nature with a highly professional manner.

I am well organised, enabling me to make deadlines without supervision and to remain calm and focused on the task at hand.

I am a good team worker who is honest helpful and caring with good listening skills.

I can adapt to change and am committed to ongoing development. I am confident that my qualifications, combined with my practical skills, provide the necessary experience to meet the requirements of caring for children.
