Hello!! I am originally from Chicago, and will be in this beautiful country (specifically Wellington) until January 2017. I graduated from The University of Kansas in December, and decided to move over to NZ for the year. I have been babysitting for 9 years now. I love to work with kids and ages don't bother me. I have babysat for newborns to teenagers. I have also been a summer camp counselor in Colorado for 3 summers, and an after school program leader for kindergartners. Name the type of kid and I have dealt with them. I am easygoing, but at the same time, I have no problem disciplining kids with the parents permission, of course. I am really good with kids. I play a lot of sports, so I like to keep the kids active and outside having fun, but I am always up for whatever they want. I am very responsible, easy going (like I said before), have a good sense of humor, and extremely trustworthy.
For over 12 years, I have worked with children at varying development levels, including those with special needs. I had some of the most fantastic cultural immersions working with diverse ethnicities and I grew to appreciate the little things that make each family unique.
I believe that children should be nurtured and cared for in a home like environment, where they can socialize and learn alongside a small group of children. I love music and art and really enjoy sharing this with the children I care for. Activities that promote developmental learning are part of my everyday routine with the children. We share rhythm and rhyme, dress-ups, collage; painting, play dough, reading stories, puzzles, and quiet free play times. We also regularly go out of the home to explore the natural environment like walks, going to the park, library, educator/nanny and child get-togethers and some theme based outings that relate to the individual child's interests. A particular feature of the care I provide includes individual profiles for each child who attends for 16hrs a week or more, this records your child's developmental stages, interests, artwork stages and photographs. This is available for you to view at any time. Additionally, I keep a daily notebook which records the important and routine features of your child's day.

I am a 19 year old student who studies commerce and tourism management looking for work in Karori, Wellington. I enjoy working with children and learning with them. I love baking and cooking as well as involving the children. I play social sports (netball, hockey, softball) and believe in fun participation for children. I speak basic French and have French friends if you are interested in your children having global interaction. I enjoy listening to music and I also play basic ukulele which I could teach the basics to children.

Hey there, I am an 18 year old who loves working with younger children. I enjoy watching them learn and try new experiences. I have siblings aged 7, 5 and 3 and I love taking them on the train to go out for the day or having movie nights at home with them. I am very patient and understanding with children and I love taking them out or planning things to do with them rather than just sitting around at home.
