I always knew from a young age that i wanted to do a job that involved working with children. Growing up having 2 younger brothers, one being disabled (in a wheelchair) and having lots of younger cousins, i have always been around children. I have also been babysitting for friends and family with children from 3 months up to 11 years old since the age of about 15.
I am warn, friendly, reliable, punctual and patient (often being told i have the patience of a saint). I am also very creative, my hobbies include baking and cooking, arts and crafts. I also enjoy being out and about, socialising and meeting new people.
I am a strong believer that children should not be stuck in front of a t.v or computer all the time, i feel they should be active and using their imaginations, learning through play, doing arts and crafts etc.
I will arrange activities such as arts and crafts, messy play, physical activities, cooking etc to suit your child's age, stage of development, personality and interests that will further their learning and development. I am also able to provide you with developmental records if you desire them. I will arrange outings including trips to the park, playgroups, library and shops as well as anywhere else you would like me to take your child. Depending on your child's age, I will arrange activities to help prepare them for school or help with homework if they are already at school.
I provide you with a scrap book of your child's art work, photos of the things they have been getting up to so you do not miss anything, as well as a daily diary providing you with information of what your child has been up to everyday, what they have eaten and any other key information you may need.
I will provide healthy, nutritious, balanced and yummy meals on a daily basis catering for your child's likes and dislikes. I am trained in food hygiene and safety to catering standard (i have a certificate to prove this)
I have my own safe, reliable car and have got a clean full driving licence and have held this for 8 years.
I have not yet registered with ofsted but i am happy to do so.
As I mentioned, i have been babysitting for friends and family for a number of years (references available on request)

During my time at Noah's ark, I worked across all the ages from the 3 month old babies to the 5 year olds.

My main responsibilities included providing a safe, caring and stimulating environment which met the differing needs of each child, recording children's progress through observations and developmental records, to develop and maintain effective professional relationships by liaising with parents and staff and to plan and organise daily activities for the children to further promote their learning and development.
