Meredith's Description

Hi There,

I am a caring, christian Mother aged 49. I have been working with children for over 30 years. My sisters children, my friends children, babysitting, caring for disabled children and also teaching English to friends children. I can juggle housework and educational activities, outside play and exercise at the same time as keeping the home clean and orderly. Nap times are easily poured into the mix, I have been doing that so long now, that its second nature. As a result, my own children are often hired by others to come organise and clean house for them!

I have been a home educator for the past 21 years and have Managed and run efficiently a scheduled and orderly school atmosphere as well as maintaining the home. My three eldest children (30, 26, 22) are all working in Managerial Roles after leaving school and were promoted very quickly within the first 2 years of their employment.

I am a friendly, outgoing person who believes in using positive affirmation to gain children's co-operation. I can diffuse a tantrum or crying episode in a short time, often helping mothers in supermarkets who are ripping their hair out.

Prior to training my own children at home for 22 years as their main educator I was secretary at an Engineering firm and assistant to the Commonwealth Ombudsman in Melbourne. I have been trained in office work and have excellent communication skills and office skills meaning that if you need to communicate with me via email or have me sort or organise things for you whilst you are working I can do that efficiently in a timely manner. During my time as a Mother I have also studied the areas of Health & Nutrition and have helped many people with chronic or debilitating illnesses to recover. In the future it is possible I will start a business in that area as so many people have had a complete u-turn in their health.

I still have children at home under my care who would accompany me at times to my work and bring along their studies. One daughter aged 15 and a daughter aged 13, and know that they would be friendly and helpful

It would be very workable for me to have a situation where children could be dropped off to my home daily also as we have a very safe and quiet little town environment and our home has quality safety fencing so that children can play outside safely and the sliding door means they can come in and out freely.

I do not have a current Safety & First Aid Certificate or Police Check, but am sure it could be secured if necessary.

If you feel that I may be able to help you in your current need, please feel free to contact me.

Kind Regards, Meredith
