Hello! And welcome to my profile!
Just a little bit about me... My name is Char and I am 23 years old, moving to Hinckley as of end of June 2018. I'm currently studying a part time distance learning degree with the OU with an interest in childhood studies and child psychology, looking to work with children alongside my degree. I have previous healthcare related work in home caring for elderly, support work for adults and teens with autism and learning difficulties, and experience of working with children as a piano/keyboard teacher, as well as in India, Nepal and Vietnam. I am able to incorporate my experiences both in the UK and abroad in the work that I do to provide an ability to understand and embrace other cultures and diversity. I'm driven to provide the best quality of care possible, with a motivation to be the best person I can be and to bring out the best in other people. I'm an energetic and enthusiastic person, with a love of life and getting involved with everything!
I've been babysitting in and around Harborne since October 2017 for children aged between 8 months and 12 years. Prior to this, I was a student at the University of Birmingham studying medicine before realising my passion for working with children!
