I am a 19, nearly 20 year old student, carrying on to study HND Textiles at college. Therefore I am a very creative, caring person who loves art and music, playing games with children, improvising with materials and situations for creative ideas and different approaches to learning.
I am looking mostly to care for younger children as I do not yet have as much experience with over 3s as I would like, but believe that I would be able to handle a child at any age.
The majority of my experience has been with two of my closest friend's children, by spending a large amount of time with them, whilst with and without the parent/s. I thoroughly enjoy spending time with young children as I like to help them with developing their speech, gross and fine motor skills, cognitive skills, colours, shapes, and also reading books and listening to music.
I also have experience with a friends disabled child, born in 2012, from giving medication to at-home physiotherapy. Meal times are also more of a challenge with disabled children, each have their own challenges but I believe with tailored advice I could complete such tasks.

I have not previously been paid for any childcare, and for a beginner these seemed like fair rates.
