My names Lauren and I'm 17 years old. The reason I want to babysit is because it helps you as parents and I love to take care of children.
Around a year ago I come back from a 4 week trip to Kenya where I was doing community conservation projects and noticed the impact we had on the children there, which has inspired me to provide help and care for people and children in a fun and exciting way.
I have experience at caring for kids as I often help my auntie when she is childminding . At the moment I also volunteer at a beaver scout group and am now a regular babysitter for two families. Both families have two children up to the age of 8. I also work at an after school club twice a week where we have around 30 children to look after.
For my GCSE’s I studied health and social care, catering, French and business. As well as the standard maths, English (literature and language) and science. By studying health and social care I have a wider understanding of what each age group need physically, intellectually (the mind) socially (relationships) and emotionally.
I am now in my last year at college to study health and social care at a level 3.
Currently I am really enjoying this course as it is giving me a deeper understanding of what children need, what the adults need and how I can use that information to be the best babysitter. For my course I have needed to complete a work placement, where last year I worked in a primary school, where I supported and encouraged the children to do activities. This year I am working in a care home.
I am very creative and love the outdoors and I love to spend time playing with the kids and having fun. Over the years I have picked up some fun activities to do with the children such as; arts and crafts, story time, fun games and anything to keep them entertained. I am happy to do anything to help you as parents with the kids and to put them to bed if they need to be. I will do anything necessary to get the children to bed clean and happy e.g. Stories, bath or anything else necessary. If the children have any routines I am happy to follow them. I am also patient, kind and understanding and able to stop arguments.
If anyone needs a babysitter when I have any plans I am happy to cancel them to help, with plenty of notice. I am also happy to do some overnight care.
