Katie's Description

Hello,

I am a qualified childcare professional dedicated to providing a loving, safe and fun environment for all children. I am a government-approved/registered nanny in case your family is eligible for the CCB or CCR rebates.

I have a Certificate III in 'Children's Services', an ABN and Public Liability Insurance (Nanny Insurance) cover for up to $20 million. I also have current First Aid/CPR certificates and a Working With Children Check (Blue Card). I have an Open Driver's license with a clean driving record and my own vehicle, which has one car seat fitted by a professional fitter. I also have a medical certificate confirming optimum physical and mental health to provide child care.

I have 8 years experience as a professional nanny. I have worked for 10 families with a total of 21 children, ranging from the ages of 10 months to 8 years old. I was born and raised in Australia but I began my nanny career in Europe and quickly learned that I had a passion for childcare and am well-suited to the work. Having been a nanny/tutor in Europe and then continuing the work here in Australia, I have learned a lot about the industry and about different family cultures.

I am an honest and responsible person with a very strong work ethic. I am flexible to fit in with, and adapt to, a family's culture, routine and style of discipline. I truly love my job and this joy makes it easy to be a hard worker. This is my career, rather than a part-time job to pass the time. It is with this passion that I will give your children the care and attention they deserve. I believe children learn best through play and exploration while being able to feel safe and nurtured. I am very loving and warm in my interactions with children but can also distinguish when discipline is needed and then administer it appropriately and patiently. I aim for each child to engage in social, physical, creative and cognitive play every day.

A few things to know about me: I have also trained in acting and dancing and find my creative personality well-suited to childcare. I also find that children tend to like my sense of humour. I can also utilize my other skills, such as yoga, meditation, baking and other languages and work these into a daily routine if you wish.

Also, I am a non-smoker, non-drinker and am committed to living a healthy lifestyle. I enjoy being creative and being in nature. I care about the environment and believe in such things as sustainable living and healthy lifestyle choices for adults and children. My other passions are nutrition, health and painting.

I am seeking part-time work and, as I am not a student, I prefer to fill my work week with whole days, as opposed to morning/afternoon split shifts. I would feel comfortable with a family who understands that I take pride in my work and can make well-informed decisions. In saying that, I do enjoy having guidance from parents so that I know they are happy with the care I am providing. I carry out all tasks at work with one thought: "If this was my child, what would I do?". I understand that your children are your pride and joy and you need to feel comfortable leaving them with someone who will help raise them to have strong self-confidence and self-esteem, to be grounded and above all else, kind.

If you believe that I could work well with your family, I would be very pleased to hear from you.

Thank you for your time.
