Kate's Description

I am a mature aged devotee to child care.

Hello families

I have been working with children since the late 70's. My first career was children's nursing. I worked with orphaned babies, children with disabilities and did the routine jobs daily. Once it was time for a change, I moved away from nursing to care for three beautiful school aged children in their home in Double Bay Sydney.

These were the children of The Squire Shop owner. I spent a year with the family living in a cottage on the property. I cared for all the children's needs as the parents managed interstate travel. I finished with the family to begin my own family, and I used the asset of learning at the hospital to care for my own in the 80's.

My third child was born in 1990. I home schooled my child until 2006.

I decided to return to childhood study by studying the Cert III at TAFE in QLD followed by the diploma in 2012. when finished I was invited to study the B/A level but when I started in the 1st semester I was looking at the theorist and I knew I agreed with the Montessori Method. I want to support the whole child. I want to listen to what the child's feelings, ideas, attitudes and philosophies may be developing.

I have a huge heart to nurture the individual as mum, dad and I work as a team to support your style for each precious little one. In September 2016 I've worked with outside school hours care until May 2017, when I withdrew to complete a vocational placement, so I am very able to care for school aged children and absolutely love working with 0-5YO children. Currently I am a qualified counsellor finalising a dual diploma in community work.

I volunteer at Save The Children on Mon/Tues. I am available to you and your family for the rest of the week. I have a Blue Card, F/A and if you would like to talk I would love to hear from you.

I am happy with $22 hourly. I have references to email to you. Feel free to contact me through this site.
