Experience & Qualifications


Hi! My name is Clara and I am 20 years old Swedish girl staying for the whole season here in Verbier looking for a babysitting job. I have a genuine interest in children and have always found working with kids being both meaningful and fun! I am an active girl who likes to try new things and has always found interest in sports and activities. To describe me I would say I am social, positive, and ambitious. I always strive to do my best and having fun at the same time. I have played football for 11 years and also tried on several other sports such as floorball, dance, gymnastics, athletics, etc. I have had some different kinds of jobs as, swimming teacher, worked in a grocery store, a sports shop, a burger restaurant, and an elementry school. I have enjoyed working as a swimming teacher for most of these jobs. That's why I want to do something similar when I'm here in Verbier for the skiing season. Caring for children is the ultimate in my opinion. Further, I talk English and Swedish and know some basic Spanish (if that would be helpful). :)

I have worked for 3 years as a swimming teacher for children between about 2-10 years. The education as a swimming teacher included one CPR education per year. So I have been trained in CPR 3 times in total where you learn many important things. In the education for swimming teachers, I have also learned how the children's body works and how children generally work (of course varies from child to child). But of course, you learn best from experience which I have a lot of from the 3 years I have worked with children.

Since I worked as a swimming teacher for several years, it has become automatic that the children are taken care of. I have, together with another teacher, checked on 10 children at a time in a pool they can't touch the bottom in, which means that you have to keep track of all the children constantly. Then I also have had private lessons with children where you get to know the children in a completely different way and it has felt like you get the kids closer which I like. I also have experience with children with autism, ADHD, ADD, and Down syndrome with whom I had sim lessons. I have also some experience of working at an elementry school even tho it only for half a year. however, I worked there just before I went here, which means that what I learned there is fresh
