Gemma's Description

I am also a qualified Speech Pathologist, having just graduated at the end of 2016.
I currently work as a nanny on Saturday mornings, for a large family (6 kids!) Their ages are 6, 7, 9, 10, 11 and 13. I have been with this family since before the youngest was born, and have been lucky enough to integrate and form a very close bond with the children.
Since graduating from uni, I am now available all week and am hoping to find another family I can join in a similar role.
I really enjoy working as a nanny because it allows me to act like the big kid that I am while also nurturing the educational, emotional and cognitive development of little minds. As a degree qualified speech pathologist I have a thorough understanding of childhood development, and as such I always aim to provide learning opportunities through play.
My additonal work experience includes child care assistant and teacher aide work. I have quite a lot of experience working with children with special needs, in particular with down syndrome and autism. I am happy to nanny for children with or without special needs, however I am not trained to perform high-care duties.
I am very easy going, and am happy to perform most duties including care, play, homework help, errands, day trips, school runs, light household cleaning, pet care, bathing, changing, and basic snack/meal preparation. My cooking skills are not the greatest but I am open to learning if this is required.
I am a local to Brisbane myself, so am happy to consider live in or live out arrangements. However I do require an hourly rate (not just straight work / accommodation swap) as I have car loan repayments etc to make.
Additional skills include basic knowledge of Australian Sign Language.
As I am a speech pathologist I am able to provide basic communication support for children who use sign, AAC devices, or require help with other areas of communication however it should be noted that in this role I am not offering to provide therapy sessions.
I hold an open drivers license, have my own vehicle and first aid, CPR, blue card etc.
If you are looking for a reliable, friendly and educated person to help care for your children and feel that I would be a good fit I would love to hear from you!
