Experience & Qualifications

Introduction:

Hello Families! I am Rebecca, currently a Physiotherapist who has put that on hold to become a Chalet Host in Chatel for the season, whilst travelling for around 1.5 years.
I have much experience with working with children through my time working in Physiotherapy (neonatal care, paedriatrics, Children's hospital wards and private practice), teaching sports in schools whilst I was studying at Univeristy, being a live in nanny in Darwin Australia and Babysitting for multiple families since a young age.
I have always enjoyed my time with children as they provide constant fun and active experiences. over the years I have babysat for multiple families with children from 3 months to teenagers. I like creativity and sports so I do not let the television do my babysitting for me. I have my own car and full Australian and British Licence. I love hiking, running, Circus (Yes I was a previous aerialist and flying trapeze artist), Swimming, tag rugby... you name a sport or activity and i'm sure I enjoy it or would love to give it a go.
Whilst you are out enjoying yourself it is my mission to have your children enjoy their time at just as much at home (or out and about if approved). I will keep them busy by being active with them, arty, cooking up a baking storm etc. But don't worry, I will respect your house and will keep it spotless. I respect the children's routine and will have them fed, bathed, teeth done, story time and in bed at your desired time. I am happy to cook meals for your children.
If you have any questions, please ask. I look after children as they make me happy and they enjoy my company. Looking forward to hearing from you.
Qualifications:

I am currently a Physiotherapist who has worked in paediatrics, hospitals and private practice as a sports physiotherapist. I have a working with children check that means I have passed police testing to work with children. I have also passed a Britis DBS testing. I have frequently updated first aid and perform CPR qualifications (most recent May 2018).
Experience:

I have been a live in nanny and have been a casual babysitter for over 10 years now and do it for the fun experiences and lovely people I meet. I have babysat all ages from 3 months old through to disabled 18 year olds. I have been a nanny for weddings where I was caring for around 8 children with my partner (Luke who I have been with for 6 years now). Whilst working as Chalet hosts I have also babysat 5 children aged (1, 2,2, 4 and 5) this current ski season during the day whilst their parents have been out on the slopes.
I have been a sports in schools teacher in Australia whilst I was doing my University Degree. This involved teaching classes from multiple schools different sports and sports skills.
I have been a volunteer for the Cerebral Palsy Alliance Australia where I would care for children to give their carers respite and assist them at sports days.
