About Me

Hello :)

-I am soon to be starting my final year at University in Canterbury, however whilst I am on my long summer break, I would love to find a local job working with children. I have plenty of experience with children of a variety of ages, my most recent being an AuPair in Australia, where I took on the sole care of a young baby.

-The majority of my immediate family also work with children, my twin sister a Teacher, older sister a baby room leader in a local nursery and my mum an AM to PM club Supervisor, therefore it feels only right for me to follow in their footsteps.

-I am seeking a role of a babysitter or live-out Nanny.

-When I return to University at the end of September (depending on the COVID-19 situation), I would be keen to stay in a job and work alongside my studies.

-I am often described as an enthusiastic, sweet and happy individual and I like to think that I know how to perfectly balance being a responsible adult and a fun loving care provider.

-I've lived in Whitstable my entire life and know it like the back of my hand.

I would be so excited to get the opportunity and responsibility to care for a child/children again so please feel free to send me a message and I will get back to you.

Take care,
Kelly Smitherman

My Experience

AuPair in Perth - Western Australia for the duration of 2015.
Here I primarily looked after a newborn baby boy until he was 1 - full time/live in. I took on the 'Mothers role' whilst she went to work. I followed a strict routine set by the Mum which included set times for sleep/bath/feeds/play.
Additionally, I babysat for his big brother when necessary and helped out with housework and making the family meals.

I have previous work experiences from working in a number of state schools, nurseries and a special needs unit.

I very often help my sister to take care of my 2.5 year old nephew, which I have been doing since he was born. My niece was also born last month, so I'm currently very hands on with a newborn! Anyone who knows me knows that I am always with them, and I am absolutely besotted.

My Qualifications

GCSE 10 A-C Grades
Child Development - A

Health and Social Care - BTEC National Diploma

Currently working towards a BA Honours in Media and Communications (Final year).

My Availability

Currently on my summer break before starting back at University in Canterbury at the end of September. I therefore have a while off and will be available the majority of the time. This will likely not change much once September arrives due to only having to attend University for 8 or so hours per week.
