Hi, my name is Lindsey and I am 37 years old. I would describe my personality as cheerful, friendly and positive. I am currently working as a professional daily nanny for a local family with 2 children who I have cared for full time over the past 3 years and prior to this 5 years as an ad hoc nanny in the school holidays. As this position will be soon coming to an end, I am looking for a position from mid August onwards.
I have always loved working with young children. I am passionate about their development and find it so rewarding when they reach developmental milestones because of my support and care. I couldn’t imagine doing anything else. For me it is not just a job. I put my heart and soul into caring for the children I am with and that shows with the bond I have with them. I bump into children in the local supermarket who I cared for years ago who remember me and run over to say hello. For me this shows how important my role is and the impact I have had on their life.
I believe children are all individual and develop at different rates. My job is to support them and help them to progress in a fun way. I encourage the children in my care to be independent, to respect others, have manners and most importantly be happy. I love reading stories and am a big fan of creative and messy play. I love being outdoors, the amount of learning that can take place outside is unbelievable. I follow the children’s interests in order to plan stimulating activities and experiences which enable them to learn.
I am able to communicate with children at their level which is an important skill to have.
I think it is important for children to have boundaries and I use positive reinforcement, praising the good behaviour rather than making a fuss of negative.
I know that the parents know their children best and I am here to follow your values and beliefs whilst making sure the children are happy safe and secure.
My hobbies include baking, yoga and gardening.
I have 15 years working with babies and young children in both private day nurseries, schools and as a nanny. I have spent the past 3 years working as a full time daily nanny with a family whose children are now aged 9 and 11.
