Hello, my name is Olivia I am 16 years old and am currently at sixth form doing my a-levels. I have a GCSE in childcare and have lots of practical experience as well as lots of fundamental information on how to properly look after children. I have two younger brothers and a large extended family so I am used to being around children all the time and having to look after them. My youngest brother has Phelan Mcdermid Syndrome and so he is harder to look after than most children as he is super hyperactive and unable to communicate, but I feel this experience has prepared me for future jobs in babysitting etc. As I am used to living in an environment with a child who you have to basically baby proof the house because of, it means I am very able to look after young children. I can also administer medicine as my parents leave me the responsibility of giving my special needs brother his medicine when I am asked to babysit him. Aside from all these aspects I love to play games with the kids and engage in the activities they like, I could teach them how to play different sports, read to them, help them with schoolwork and generally give life advice if they need someone to talk to. I hope you consider me for your placement as I would love to begin working. Thankyou.

I feel this is a fair amount to charge for child care. However, it depends on the amount of children and the duties expected of me by the parents/guardians. I am willing to discuss rates and negotiate :)
