I am a mature, responsible, reliable and cheerful person with excellent childcare and interpersonal skills, a Certificate III in Children’s Services, and extensive experience as both a live-in and live-out nanny. I simply love children, love caring for them and find them fascinating, and I am seeking further nanny work to continue doing what I love and broadening my experience.
