About Me

Hi, I'm Robin, and I'm a Primary School teacher in-training, currently studying Upper Primary Education at Canterbury Christ Church University. I'm Level 3 qualified with 4 years of experience in schools, nurseries, after school clubs, youth clubs and babysitting, so I'm experienced with all age groups! I absolutely love being outdoors, and I've just finished a full-time job in a Forest School for nursery children, which I absolutely loved, as I have a passion for the outdoors! I've recently moved to the area so I'm looking to fill up my week as much as possible!

I love keeping active, video games (I usually share a love for Minecraft with the children I care for!), art and I have a background in Drama, which I try to incorporate into my practice with role play and other forms of expressive arts, which the children love! I also have a deep passion for special needs and challenging behaviour, and have been fortunate enough to have experience with children with varying needs.

If you'd like to contact me to discuss potential bookings, please give me a call or text on the number provided, or drop me an email. I always respond very quickly!

My Experience

I've completed 3 years of training at college and have achieved a Level 3 in Childcare and Education with a very high grade A. This course involved year-long work placements in schools and nurseries. I was then a member of 2 childcare agencies, providing regular cover work for nursery assistants and teaching assistants throughout West Sussex, and I worked full-time in one of those nurseries for 3 months. I was the regular babysitter for 2 families; a family of 4 children requiring daytime and evening babysitting, and a family of 1 child with Autism who required regular days out and stimulation from a male influence. References available.

I am fully First Aid trained, and I have experience with Special Needs and challenging behaviour and have just completed a qualification in Understanding Autism.

I also volunteered at 2 local youth clubs while I was in college.
