About Me

Polite and hard-working History graduate available for babysitting. Mature and enthusiastic Teaching Assistant, I like to keep fit by attending the gym and Irish Dancing three times a week. I use my initiative and have a calm, friendly personality. I believe that babysitting could further my own knowledge whilst offering couples/families some time for themselves.
I have an extensive background of paid and voluntary work in private nurseries and schools. Punctual with my time management and like to be organised.
Kind and respectful to everyone I meet, treating them as I would like to be treated
When I am not working or doing sport, I like to go for long walks, catch up with friends and watch Disney films

My Experience

For the last three years I have been working with children aged 12 months to preschool years in Private Nurseries and aged 4-10 in primary schools. I enjoy watching the children learn as they discover their gross motor skills and like to teach them how to read, write, draw.

I know it is very important to have patience and the spare time to develop a child's independent and practical skills, giving them your full attention. Whilst at University, I supported myself by working part time jobs and found a passion for working with nursery children under BusyBees Childcare. Private Nurseries and schools have allowed me to gain a wealth of knowledge in EYFS, Key Stage 1-3. I developed valuable transferable skills such as time management, communication and problem solving. I make strong relationships with children and parents. Love playing games, making creative things with children whether inside or outdoors. Mostly I enjoy being outdoors in fresh air going to parks or the beach (if local)

I am Paediatric First Aid trained and have an Enhanced DBS check. Currently I am trying to gain full time permanent employment in a school in Foundation Phase as a Teaching Assistant. I am also looking into becoming a full time nanny either live in or live out as I love helping families out. Completing tasks gives me a sense of achievement and I always strive to do my best to make someone's day better and life easier so they have less housework etc to do after a long day.
Since December 2020 I have been enrolled onto a Level 3 Childcare Course and hope to finish this soon. I am so excited to gain a certificate at the end of this course as I know it will be highly valuable to have on my CV and in writing for any childcare settings etc in my future
I have worked in a private nursery in my hometown and have experience of working in schools through volunteering aswell as agency work in the Infants and Juniors (Infants is my preferred age group)
Currently I participate in Irish Dancing on Wednesday+Thursday evenings as well as Saturday mornings. I assist my Irish Dancing Teacher with the little ones who start as young as aged 2. I like to make their dance lessons fun, enjoyable and engaging. I also spend some of my free hours on a Sunday helping out at my Church in the Children's Liturgy where they learn Bible stories, make friends and create artwork to display or keep.
