Thanks for chatting with us today, Libby. Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
I'm a responsible, down to earth and nurturing person in my work. When I'm not working I enjoy spending time with my loved ones, going out for brunch, exercising, and going away over the weekend and visiting beautiful places in Victoria.
Tell us about your experience with children and families?
I have 4.5 years of experience in the Childcare industry both at a centre and working as a nanny. I have experience with newborns to children up to age 10. I've cared for families with one, two, three and four children, twins, triplets, children on the spectrum, and new born babies.
What do you love most about working as a nanny?
I adore working with babies and children. Forming a positive relationship with the families I work with and becoming a part of the family is very rewarding. Seeing a child develop from one milestone to another, and knowing that I am making a positive influence in their life inspires me to continue what I do for work. Lastly, seeing them happy in my care gives my soul great happiness!
How would you describe your approach to working with children and families?
I believe in being a nurturing, down to earth carer, with a sense of humour. Providing babies and children in my care with a environment that makes them thrive and feel safe is paramount. Making them feel as though they belong is extremely important to me.
Thanks for sharing, Libby!
