I am a passionate, qualified and experienced child carer. The service I offer is to care for your children in your home or family accommodation.
I love my work and engage in the children’s world and partner in their exploration. I aim to provide a calm, stable and interactive environment in which play and activities such as crafts, horticulture, music and yoga are encouraged. It is important to me to allow children the space to express themselves independently.
Former studies in linquistics at Macquarie University support my aim to practice good grammar and articulation.
In my previous occupation as an early childhood educator, my empathy for parents and their children was well known to my clients and this came after building relationships of trust and good communication with both parents and children.
Respecting your family routines, I will endeavour to follow your rules and standards.
My experience includes caring for children from toddlers to adolescents and of particular importance to me is understanding and respecting adolescents. I have been caring for children in their homes for over 10 years and during this time have also worked as an in-home carer with the Family Day Care scheme.
Throughout, I have studied to improve my skills and knowledge in the area of child care, holding a Certificate III in Early Childhood Services as well as studying the Rudolph Steiner and Hand in Hand Parenting philosophies.
Safety is my top priority. To this end, I hold a current Senior First Aid certificate which includes training in Asthma and Anaphylaxis. Currently I am studying for a Certificate II in First Aid.
Fully insured, I have all required endorsements including NSW Working with Children Check and the National Police Certificate.
“Christina is very caring, polite and friendly. She is fantastic with my 2 young daughters. She always plans each occasion and arrives with activities tailored to each child and takes time to ensure their needs are met. I feel at ease leaving my daughters with her and they enjoy her company. It is our first time with a babysitter, that wasn’t family and I would recommend Christina to other families with no hesitation.“ – Kerri
