Part time Nanny

I have been working for a young family with 3 children now aged 4,7 and 11years for the past 4 years. Sometimes twice a week sometimes all weekend or all week. This family is relocating far south of Sydney so I am seeking new avenues in nanny work. I believe I have a great rapport with families and provide nurturing quality care with an holistic approach.

Interests

A Little Bit About Me...

Hello my name is Janette my friends call me Nette my employer`s call me punctual. I enjoy yoga, swimming, walking and snorkelling to keep fit of mind, body and soul.

For the past 4 years I have worked as a nanny for a young family with 3 children aged 4, 7 and 11 years. I commenced working for this family when the youngest child was 6 months old. Unfortunately this family is relocating so I am looking for a new family to share my knowledge, commitment and unique childcare expertise with my holistic approach to nurturing care and education. My daughter lives in Chermside North Brisbane so living close to her would be a bonus

I have chosen the Early Childhood profession for the past 24 years and continue to work in this field because I believe in people's rights. I believe each unique, individual child has the right to reach their optimum learning developmental potential. I believe families should expect and receive quality educational and nurturing care for the most precious people in their life; their children.

I am a motivated individual with willingness to learn new skills and achieve personal and professional goals. I enjoy working with the general public and have the ability to liaise with people from all backgrounds. I believe my attributes lend themselves to my ability in providing excellent customer service at all times.

Personal Strengths:

I have the ability to develop very strong relationships with people of all ages, nationalities
and status, primarily through my warm personality. I am quick to recognise jobs that need to be done around the house and am very approachable with a "Yes I can" philosophy.

I feel I have a good personality and have always gotten along extremely well with people. I have a good sense of humour and look at the bright side of life, always maintaining excellent relations with
clients, staff and management.

I am self motivated, loyal and enjoy focusing on my specific responsibilities and completing them extremely well.

I approach everything with energy and enthusiasm and am motivated to work until the task is finished.

Skills and Attributes:

- Ability to effectively work independently as well as contributing to a team effort.
- Highly motivated, reliable, confident and committed to professional standards.
- Ability to liaise with management and staff.
- Ability to prioritise and handle multiple tasks.
- Ability to adapt to change quickly within the work environment.
- Strong interpersonal and communication skills, able to effectively interact with diverse communities.

Willing to relocate: Anywhere
