About Me...

I am a mature age nanny with 10 years of experience, working locally with young children varying in age from 2 months to 12 years. Early childhood education is my passion, and I have a caring, nurturing personality, am hardworking, punctual and take pride and responsibility with my work.

I have raised my own family of two children, and have worked in Early Learning Centres for about 15 years prior to becoming a private nanny, caring for children in their own homes.

My duties have been extensive and varied, and include bottle feeding, cleaning and sterilising bottles, changing nappies, bathing, preparing nutritious meals based on the children's preferred foods, toileting and toilet training, teaching children to dress, tie shoelaces and brush their teeth.

I incorporate activities into their routines to teach children basic skills, and do this in a fun way, to keep their interest. I like to teach counting games, music and singing, encourage the love of books and reading at an early age, simple cooking and baking, puzzles and imaginative play. If the child has a pet, I teach him/her about feeding and interesting facts about the type of animal.

I like taking my children on outings to parks, libraries, Questacon, playgroups, sports, dancing lessons, music lessons and anything else that is suitable for their age group.

Being bilingual, I enjoy teaching pre-schoolers basic Czech. They like learning new words and traditions from my birth country, the Czech Republic.

One of my long-term contracts is expiring next month, and I am searching for a new family to care for in January 2019. I can provide good references from my current and past employers. If I sound like the kind of nanny you are looking for, please contact Abracadabra Childcare Services for further details.
