Katie's Description

Hello,

I am a qualified and experienced professional nanny dedicated to providing a loving, safe and fun environment for all children. I hold a Certificate III in 'Children's Services', an ABN and Public Liability Insurance (Nanny Insurance) cover for up to $20 million. I also hold current CPR/First Aid/Childcare First Aid certificates, which has units 'Anaphylaxis' and 'Asthma' approved by the ACECQA. I hold a (Paid) Working With Children Check (Blue Card) and National Police Check. I am a registered carer through the Family Assistance Office and am also a contractor for a Brisbane Community Centre so that eligible families can receive CCS. I am also a member of the Australian Nanny Association and partake in professional development courses. I am also represented by professional nanny agencies. I have an Open Driver's license with a clean driving record and my own vehicle, which has one child seat fitted by a professional fitter. I also have multiple references from past employers. I also have a medical certificate confirming optimum physical and mental health to provide child care. I plan to commence study towards a 'Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care' in approximately 1 year's time and this will be self-paced so as not to intrude on work commitments.

I have 9 years experience as a professional nanny, both in Australia and Europe. I have worked as "sole charge" for 12 families with the children ranging from the ages of 7 months to 8 years old. In Europe, I was employed by high-profile families not only as a nanny but also as an English tutor for their children. Working with children from different cultures and lifestyles in Europe and Australia has given me in-depth, practical industry experience.

I am an honest, loyal and responsible person with a strong work ethic. I have good leadership skills and I am also flexible to fit in with, and adapt to, a family's culture and routine. I am passionate about my career as a nanny, which fuels my motivation and effort. 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 feeling safe and nurtured. I am loving and warm in my interactions with children but can also distinguish when discipline is necessary and then administer it appropriately and patiently. I aim for each child to engage in social, physical, creative and cognitive play every day.

I also have background training and experience in Performing Arts and find my creative personality well-suited to childcare. I am also warm and inclusive with children and they appreciate the attention I give them and my sense of humour. I can also incorporate my other skills/hobbies, such as yoga, dance, meditation, baking and other languages into a daily routine if you wish.

I am a non-smoker, non-drinker and am committed to living a healthy lifestyle. I enjoy being creative and being in nature. I believe in sustainable living and healthy lifestyle choices. My other passions are nutrition/health, painting and dance.

I am seeking part-time work and, as this is my career, I prefer to fill my work week with whole days as opposed to morning/afternoon split shifts. 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, 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.
