Hi!! I’m a stay at home mum of 2 toddlers, a nearly 4 year old, and a 1.5 year old. I’m a playcentre mum so I love children being children and learning best through play in safe environments! I finished working to spend this important time with my kids, however I also need to supplement our weekly income. So why not create amazing bonds with more children! I have been nannying off and on for the last 7 years while I studied my degree, and then I worked full time for 2 years before I had children. Now that I’m home with my children, I’m back nannying again! Please note: currently unavailable for Monday; Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. (2pm-6pm)
Hello my name is Cara and I am 18 years old(about to turn 19), and am back in Auckland temporarily after a year of working as a youth worker in a Catholic school in Timaru. I am very involved in my communities, including being deputy head girl of my Marist College in 2016. I love spending time with kids and have spent a lot of my holidays in the past five years taking care of children of my friends, family, church, and neighbourhood. I have experience with infants, toddlers and children of all ages, including children with disabilities. I also taught children's music lessons for 4 years, have been a leader at children's holiday programs and camps, and was a paid children's minister at Cityside Baptist Church in 2016. I find children so refreshing, fun, encouraging, and eye-opening to be around, they have so much to teach and show us even though they haven't been in our world very long! I am available until the 23rd of February, and keen to help you out with any childcare needs.
When I was 14, my little sister was born, and I took a great interest in looking after her! I have changed many nappies, dealt with tantrums, and know about the realities of looking after babies, toddlers, and children. I truly care about children and try my best to make sure they learn essential life skills such as kindness, safety, and how to have fun. I have a child first aid certificate. While I don't have a drivers license, I am an avid user of public transport, and enjoy going for walks and taking children on outings.
We are a Home Based Childcare service offering quality childcare in the Hutt Valley. We believe in providing a respectful, loving environment where all children's self-esteem and confidence is a priority. Our community programme is local, varied fun and offers children many amazing experiences. Our Educators are committed to the seeing the true potential in every individual child, making sure that all children's individual interests are nurtured. We are licensed by the Ministry of Education and reviewed by the Education Review Office. If you are looking for a team of teachers who will put your child first then you need to talk to us.
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.
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. I will only be available from 4:30 onwards Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesday as I have a full-time job also but can work till whenever. I am very trustworthy, reliable and responsible and will be on time to make sure your child/ren are well looked after.
I have been involved with the care of some lovely families, they have provided me with some lovely references. They are happy to talk with you, about me and my standard of care. I have raised a family of my own, they are independent adults. I am flexible with my time. I have a cv & some great references for you to view.
I am a reliable and enthusiastic fully qualified nanny looking for casual work or babysitting! I love children and am very good with them. I have had experience with children from new born up until 11 years old
