Babysitter in Wisbech
Female Non-smoker Member since Sep 2014 Last Updated Aug 2018 Last Login 01 Dec 2020 Email
I am 25 years old, bubbly, happy and well educated and love the company of children. As a person I am friendly, polite and I enjoy games and activities. In my spare time I enjoy kickboxing, hiking, climbing and relaxing with a book or film. I am a non smoker and I do not drink. I studied Psychology at A level and briefly at university before deciding to travel the world leading me to have a fantastic cross-cultural understanding and respect. I am reliable and trustworthy. As a child I was encouraged to discover and explore new places and that is something I would like to pass on to all children I work with. Trips to the local museums and educational or purposeful activities are something I actively encourage.
I began babysitting as a teenager for neighbours & friends with children ranging from 3 to 8 years old. I later became a Nanny to a family with a 2 and 4 year old. The duties included taking children to school and looking after the children outside of school time, maintaining routines and ensuring the children were happy. Alongside this I often spent time engaging the children in fun but purposeful activities, including trips to the Science Museum and local fairs.
More recently I have had a larger experience with newborns and their families, all the way up to 2 years and was responsible for all aspects of care, including bottle feeding expressed milk. In addition, whilst working at PGL, an Outdoor Education provider, I was an Activities Instructor/Group Leader and responsible for delivering exciting group activities for children from 4-15 years old. As well as activities it was my job to ensure the safety of all children during their adventure sports, to ensure they were happy, engaging, eating well and getting enough rest. I have also worked extensively with children and their families who have challenging behaviour, mental health issues, attachment disorders and children who are looked after by the social services.
I have studied child development, milestones and baby welfare and engagement and thus have a vast knowledge concerning all aspects of care. I also have a brief medical knowledge regarding children, having grown up in a household of medical professionals.
All of this experience means I am confident in caring for children with a range of ages and circumstances. I have demonstrated my reliability, dependability and trustworthiness. I also have the maturity to deal confidently with unforeseen circumstances and have dealt with emergency situations; this is supported by my Emergency First Aid qualification.
