Experienced Sole Charge Nanny/Ad Hoc Babysitter. 3 hour mini…
Hi parents/caregivers, My name is Amber, I am 32 years old and live in Lutwyche, Brisbane.
I have enjoyed babysitting for the past 18 years on and off, for the most part while working full time in Nannying or Admin. I have been a Full Time Live-In Nanny internationally for 2 of those in London.
I have worked with kids of all ages from newborn to teens as well as twin infants. I have also worked alongside varying levels of ASD and learning delays which I really enjoy as it helps me learn new ways of communicating/dealing with emotions. I have a partner with two kids 5 & 7 who I get along fabulously with, the eldest is Neurodivergent as is my partner and both are an absolute treasure and teach me new things all the time about patience and understanding.
I take pride in being able to diffuse a situation with words (most of the time), counting down from 5 usually works to get little ones to settle and will try to work about what’s upset them/get them thinking about why they were triggered.
I love to go beyond a ‘babysitter’ and try leave knowing they’ve been taught green and red choices, how to be gentle, use kind words and how we look after our siblings.
I take a firm but fair approach, am definitely all in for a dance party, hair braiding and floor is lava when required. I enjoy cooking and arts and love to include the kids in simple cooking and cleaning, to develop life skills and independence. I have two car seats in my car, Rear Facing 0-2years and Forward Facing 1-8years and happy to take kids for trips close by to get out of the house if too far for walking.
My preference is sole charge roles for 3 hours + where parents are out having some free time or we are out for that time of WFH, generally because there’s a pull between Nanny and Parent if home which can be very challenging for all.
If you’re seeing me available, it’s a rare occurrence as my Nanny business is booming, usually fairly busy but absolutely love to meet new families.
I’m looking forward to learning about you and your littlies.
