About Me..

My name is Paige Bates; I am 21 years old and come from Wareham , Dorset in the South of England. I have come to Australia on a 12-month working holiday visa seeking new opportunities to work. I am a hardworking , extremely trustworthy and reliable individual who likes to take on new challenges. I am able to use my Initiative to complete these challenges to a very high standard when either working on my own or as part of a team. I have a kind, friendly and empathetic personality and a passion for working with children. With my broad range of childcare experience working with both neurotypical children and those with additional needs (specifically autism)I can bring lots of fresh creative skills and ideas that enable children to develop and have fun. With my enthusiasm and flexible approach to both work and life I am now seeking an opportunity to work in a new environment and outside of the United Kingdom.
