Experience: 6 Years
I'm interested in looking after children as I’ve always wanted a career in working with children. I’ve got a lot of experience in looking after children from a couple to several children at any one time. I have looked after children of family, friends and neighbours, ranging from the age of newborns to 13 years. I have a very friendly, outgoing personality and a great work ethic as I have the ability to liaise with children of all ages. Over the years, I have assisted both my dance and performing arts teacher in where I’d teach the younger pupils. I have also assisted running 2 summer schools and the drama club by myself after school whilst I was in sixth form. Whilst looking after the children, I have undertaken household chores such as cooking, cleaning, washing, ironing. If overnight stay/late night stay (finishing at midnight), I would put the children to bed, giving them baths, read bedtime stories and in the morning get them up, washed, serve breakfast and get them ready for the day. Including their household routine, I would help the children depending on age with homework, practise of activities or any hobbies they participate in. Also on weekends/holidays, I would take the children to the park, swimming, bowling, cinema.
