Hi, my name is Ivy. Just a bit about myself:
I grew up in West Cork, but I moved to Galway to do a BA in NUIG where I studied English and French. I then did a year-long internship in a primary school in Shantalla. My official role was 'school librarian', but I also helped kids with dyslexia and was involved in the infant classes role play activities,after-school homework club and teaching some French to 5th and 6th class.
I also completed a part-time Special Needs Assistant course (Level 5&6 combined) which has made me a qualified SNA.
My experience with childminding started in Cork with a family of two children, a cat, two dogs and a horse. I became part of the family, looking after the kids, doing some cooking and cleaning, minding the pets and house-sitting while the family went on holidays. I hope this assures you that I am reliable and trustworthy.
I would love the opportunity to look after little ones (and big ones!), to help with homework, do some arts and crafts, cooking, and especially baking!
If you would like any more info. Give me a call.
