I have experience of babysitting for relatives and having responsibility for children in my care. At school, I did Health and Social Care, learning about children and their growth and development. Whilst studying this at school, I also had the opportunity to experience working in a primary school where I acted as a teaching assistant who would often help the children with their school work.

Tasks that Lucy can help with
I am a responsible and dependable person. I have had plenty of experience with children as I have had to look after younger siblings and cousins from time to time for family members. I have done work experience at my old primary school; helping the children with their reading, learning and playing with them during break times. I worked in a children's play centre for two years during my time at college to gain more experience with children. In that time, I have learnt how best to deal with children, especially those with disabilities or special needs. I reached the level of Party Supervisor which meant that I would be in charge of hosting parties for children aged 1 - 8 years. This entailed making sure their food was ready on time; that the party ran smoothly and most importantly, that all children were having fun. The job gave me valuable experience for when looking after children.
