I’m 23 and have several years childcare experience. I love to chat, bake and be creative with kids!
Most recently, before lockdown, I worked part-time as a nanny for a one year and also as an overnight/weekend babysitter for a family with three children aged 4-11. As part of these jobs I was responsible for mealtimes, bath times, bedtimes and also coming up with fun activities or joining in with all the awesome games the kids came up with!
In addition to this experience I spent my gap year caring for 8 8-11 year olds in a boarding school in Senegal, Africa. my duties were taking care of them from when they woke up, breakfast and getting them ready for school and then doing after school activities, doing homework, dinner, bathing and bedtimes with them. During this time I learnt so many fun activities that we could do together and how to get kids involved and excited about the everyday things we had to do. I also learnt a lot about how to deal with various situations such as arguments between the kids or just when someone was having a bad day and needed some cheering up. I also learnt a lot about how to keep kids safe and what to do when kids are hurt or sick.
