  • Alana T - 18 year old Female   Last logged on 25-May-2018
    I am currently a first year student studying a bachelor of Science at the ANU. I have had many years of experience working with different aged children (2 - 15) , as discussed below. I have recently moved to Canberra from Darwin, where I was employed by a family to babysit their four-year-old daughter Hannah, on a regular basis. Whilst babysitting Hannah I not only supervised her activities but also aided her in reading, mathematical and memory based activities whilst also delving into non-formal aspects of education which I believe are extremely important in the development of young children such as art (drawing, painting, crafts) and music. Due to my time no longer being required by the family, I am now looking for a new babysitting job. In previous years I have also assisted with house work while babysitting, getting children ready for bed, preparing meals and ensuring they were in a safe environment. While in Darwin I babysat a family of two children from the initial ages of 3 and 10 till 7 and 14 and thus have a wide experience in babysitting children of different ages. As a formal dancer, I also have had additional experience with working with children between the ages of 4 -- 15 through being a teacher and supervisor at events. Through this experience of teaching I have established many skills on how to approach children with different personalities, backgrounds and (learning) difficulties. I believe every child is different and thus it is important to get to know the children you are looking after in order to be best help them learn and also understand them when in difficult situations. I am extremely enthusiastic with children and often find that I can build strong relationships with them which aid with their development and safety. I currently hold an NT OCHRE card, which is the equivalent of a Working with Children's Card in most states and involved a police check prior to being issued with the card. I also have a valid NT manual driving license (P plates, but will be on my open license by the end of April) but do not currently own a car in Canberra. I am generally quite flexible and would be visiting you by use of public transport. I am always on time and pride myself in my ability to connect and look after kids. I look forward to any opportunity you may be able to provide me with. Please note that my University timetable does shift around, but I will keep you updated with a detailed availability roster. One shift would be preferred per week due to university requirements but this can be discussed at a later date.

    Hello! My name is Hazel and I am currently a 2nd year student at the Australian National University majoring in Psychology. I am from Singapore and I have a diploma in Child Psychology & Early Education, specialising in Early Intervention. I can speak both fluent English and Mandarin. My previous work experience includes full time jobs as a behavioural therapist, occupational therapist assistant and a preschool teacher. I am a passionate and highly motivated individual. I love working with children and I believe my cheerful disposition helps me bond quickly with them.

  • Chloe M - 23 year old Female   Last logged on 24-May-2018
    I'm a University student studying at The Australian National University. I have been working with the same beautiful family in Canberra for the previous 2 years (a blended family with 5 gorgeous children who have been aged between 3-12 throughout my time looking after them). I adore them however with some lesser university commitments this year I am looking for some more work, particularly longer hours throughout the day to help support myself. I have also worked over the past 8 years in a Pre-School in my hometown as a casual carer and absolutely love engaging with children across all ages. I am reliable, trustworthy, honest and genuinely interested in forming a relationship with your family. I come to love the children I work with and am very interested in working with a family who values me as an important part of the family machine. I love to set up craft activities, go out for adventures to the park or arboretum, help out with homework, prepare food and generally just keep an eye on everyone. I'm super flexible so willing to just work with whatever you need, however my studies come first and as such I need to work with someone who understands that timetables can change throughout the year and there may need to be small adjustments occasionally. I look forward to hearing from you! Let me know if you have any questions!

    I am an articulate, friendly and enthusiastic individual, who thoroughly enjoys working with people, specifically children. I am currently in my second year of University at ANU. Before moving to canberra I spent the duration of 2016 overseas working as a Gap Student at Beachborough School in the UK.

I specifically enjoyed working in boarding and aftercare, as this was the time I got to really know the kids through play.

    I am a university student at ANU studying Criminology and Forensic Linguistics. I come from a large, very close, family from rural NSW, but I have lived in Canberra for a couple years now. I have a clean drivers license and have never even gotten a parking ticket. I am kind, punctual, responsible and hard working.

  • Natalie M - 19 year old Female   Last logged on 25-Mar-2018
    I have just completed year 12 at Kincoppal - Rose Bay in Sydney, however have just moved down to Canberra to live in John XXIII College while I am studying a Bachelor of Science at ANU. I have vast experience babysitting children from a range of different age groups and I am interested in a part-time nanny position to further my experience as well as to earn an income. My interests include waterpolo, cooking and going to the beach. Having babysat the same families for the past 3-4 years, I have developed a strong relationship with both the children and the parents, and have found that working with children is something that I really enjoy. I have also watched these children grow and learn during the years I have looked after them and I have become extremely passionate about assisting a child in all areas of their growth. I have also grown up surrounded by younger cousins and I used to teach swimming lessons at a local boys school weekly, where I am immersed in the water with my students, who typically are aged between 4 and 10.

    I am a university student currently attending ANU, and have extensive experience nannying. Not only do I have two younger siblings who I helped care for growing up, I have also cared for many of families in the local community, who had children between the ages of 6 to 12, and my duties involved pick ups, drop offs, dinners, homework, and general household duties. I currently have extensive experience working with children as my previous two jobs both involved me working with children. I was a gymnastics coach at two clubs where I predominantly worked with children aged 4/5 to 14. My second position was working in the Kids Club of my gym where I was responsible for children aged 6 months to 13 years old. I also possess a Working with Children Check (details provided when requested), as well as my own vehicle if transportation is required.

    I've had heaps of experience working with kids, from starting babysitting when I was 16 and continuing to now where in Sydney I worked at an after school care during the afternoons and nannied during the days. I love working with kids and with my long experience working in schools and one on one with children I've learnt many ways to create a bond with them and not act as a "teacher"/"nanny" but a friend. I'm a Uni Student at ANU, studying a Bachelor of Arts majoring in International Relations and have flexible hours, I also have access to a car so can do school pick ups and drop offs. I can cook and clean as well if that is required.
