Professional Childcare worker offering babysitting service

I am a kind, trustworthy and caring 25 year old male supply teacher , from Cwmbran, who has 4 years of experience caring for children in primary schools/nurseries and 7 years with babysitting. I have L1, L2 and L3 Childcare qualifications, references and a DBS i can provide to parents if requested. I am happy to work with children of any age, gender, ethnicity or religion as well as their parents/carers.

Through my experiences with children i know how important it is for parents to get a professional carer who will not only make sure your child's needs are being met, but will also go any distance in making sure your child can thrive and development as the unique individual that they are. I have always put the needs of the child first and have always made sure that i am providing them with the best care that i can give them.

When caring for children i ensure they are protected/safeguarded, that they are eating healthily, have plenty of exercise and their preferences and likes are taken into account with things that i do with them. I am also firm but kind/caring with the children i work with and believe that it is best for children to receive everything in moderation.

I have had training in many areas while working with children, which includes:

Adult/paediatric first aid and medicine

Basic Welsh language

Basic Makaton signing

Safeguarding children

Food hygiene at work L2

Health and safety

    I helped the room leader implement their planning by doing activities with the children, which helped them to learn and develop in various different areas. I supervised the children both in the room and outside when they were playing. I helped to prepare, layout and dish out the children's lunch and supervise them when they were eating. I acted as a positive role model to the children by dressing appropriately, displaying positive and professional behaviour, discouraging negative behaviour and by being punctual. I discouraged negative behaviour like taking other children's toys by doing things such as putting children on time out and issuing verbal warnings. I encouraged positive behaviour like sharing with other children by doing things such as giving verbal praise, giving stickers and giving first choice of toy. I read stories with the children and encouraged them to read as well, this was to encourage them to learn and to improve their creative and imaginative development. I also sang songs with the children to encourage verbal development, cooperation amongst themselves, encourage verbal interaction and to help them to learn new words and actions. I helped the children to dress/undress when they were doing sport games, coming into the nursery or were leaving the nursery. I wiped down and cleaned the paly equipment outside if it was raining. I cleaned the children's water bottles I told staff if children needed to go to the toilet , instead of taking the as males are not allowed to do that in the nursery. I helped the younger children to go to sleep by providing them with physical contact e.g. tummy rubbing and by offering them verbal reassurance.

    I provided children with resources and activities so that they could play. I also encouraged the children to learn during their play. E.g. getting them to count in Welsh during hide and seek. I made sure that the children had something to eat during lunch and encouraged them to bring in healthy foods to eat. I risk assessed the equipment before the children came in and encouraged the children to assess the risks themselves in a safe and educational manner. I held meetings with other play workers, where we talked about what happened in the day and if we needed to change/improve anything. I acted as a positive role model to the children in ways such as i encouraged them to share the resources, i got them to ask me before they went to the bathroom, to say please and thank you and to not use any bad language especially with the older children around the younger ones. I planned trips and themed dress up days for the children to take part in. Finally i also encouraged the shyer children to take part in the activities and played with them to give them the confidence to play with other children in the setting.
