I am an experienced babysitter. I build strong, loving and long term relationships with children quickly. I have cared for my neighbours children for roughly 4 years now, their eldest now being 4 and their youngest 2. I have also in the past babysat for nearby neighbours that have now unfortunately moved house. I would regularly put them to bed and read stories, as well as walk and collect them from school. I am thinking of starting a career in childcare, therefore am looking for jobs in the local area In order to find more opportunities to gain further experience, and form close bonds with children; acting as a good role model.
I believe that a great childcarer, really understands children. Their motives, their acknowledgement and their understanding of the world around them. Someone who is kind, patient and loving, the best child carer is an individual that treats the child like one of their own. Babysitting can be challenging, but rewarding. In order to be successful there are skills you need which I believe I have acquired over my years of experience, for example: maturity, some may say it comes with age as the older you get the wiser you become. I believe maturity comes with experience and guidance. Patients is a key skill, as well as literacy skills and communication skills, these skills are vital in helping the development of a young individual, further skills. I am fun, outgoing and I thoroughly enjoy the outdoors. I have a passion for reading therefore bedtime stories are not a miss, one of my favourite things to do is art and craft I can do bath time and bedtime. I have strong leadership skills and I think building a strong relationship is also important.
