enthusiastic and warm 18 year old looking for a job in childcare
I am currently taking a gap year after finishing my A levels (in biology, chemistry and psychology) and I am looking for nannying work, as I thoroughly enjoy working with children. I have spent several hours a week volunteering at a nursery since October 2017. I assisted in the baby room, caring for children aged 5 months - 2 years. I helped with feeding, playing, singing, reading and putting the babies to sleep, as well as caring for children with specific needs. I am confident in communicating with children, both verbally and non-verbally, which enables me to understand their needs and respond appropriately. I am a calm, kind individual which allows me to bond easily with children, and comfort them effectively. Additional to my nursery volunteering, I have also had several years of babysitting experience, regularly looking after children from 6 months - 12 years. Through this, I have carried out roles such as bathing, feeding, changing, and playing with the children. Furthermore, I have studied child attachment and child development, both in school and independently, giving me a greater insight into child behaviour and effective childcare.
