Hello! My name is Sophie Gouk and I am a recent illustration graduate. I am a happy, friendly, supportive woman that loves looking after kids. I have lots of experience having been bought up with siblings a lot younger than me. I have also had work with various other families with which I have become very close and accepted by. I am very creative and would love to get your children involved with little projects such as mask making, painting, papier mache and other exciting stuff. At a young age it is important to stimulate that part of their brain and encourage them to create and express themselves. I am looking for part time childcare working from about 2-5 times a week to support my life and bus fares into Brighton from Peacehaven. I will be moving there in Janurary and will be free to work as soon as I get there. I am very enthusiastic about children and I'm very inspired by them and the things they come up with. I cant wait to get started and get to know your children! I will do my upmost to keep them happy and entertained, and I am also willing to cook and clean :) Hope to hear from you soon!

9 December 2016 To whom it may concern in respect of Ms Sophie Gouk I have known Sophie for a year and a half in the capacity of a childminder for my granddaughter, Ajna, and she has become a family friend. She is a warm, kind person with a tremendous sense of creativity, fun and adventure. She is also reliable and totally trustworthy. We met Sophie while she was undertaking an art project at the Booth Museum of Natural History while studying for a degree an Art degree. My granddaughter, then aged 3, was fascinated by the colourful sketches Sophie was making of the exhibits and asked a myriad of questions. Part of Sophie’s final project was to collect children’s drawings of the exhibits. She asked my granddaughter if she would like to do a drawing and over several visits and meetings a bond grew between the two of them. Sophie offered to give Ajna art lessons and they were soon producing Venetian-style masks in our kitchen with paint and glitter all over the place. Over the months and on a completely voluntary basis, Sophie helped Ajna develop in many ways, quietly giving her the confidence not only to draw, paint and colour but also to skateboard, climb and act out fun scenarios. At Ajna’s 4th birthday party themed on Disney characters, Sophie turned up with face paints and accessories and played a huge part in making the occasion very exciting and happy for all the children. In short, Sophie is vigilant and sensitive to the moods of young children, inspiring, thoughtful and above all fun to be with. I have no hesitation in recommending her most warmly to you.
I need a living wage to support my life and get busses into town from Peacehaven. I am also an illustration graduate and love art, I am happy to incorporate art lessons and workshops into my daily work.
