Hi there, my name is Ireland and I currently work as a Programme Coordinator for youth with disabilities! This is with an awesome organisation called Recreate New Zealand. I have recently returned to my home town (Christchurch) after completing a bachelors degree in Sport and Recreation up in Auckland. I have plenty of experience with children through ECE and previous work roles! Ultimately, I am a very bubbly, positive and motivated individual who genuinely enjoys looking after our lovely tamariki. I am looking to help out with babysitting every so often and am available most weeknights and weekends (preferably evenings). I would love to answer any further questions you have, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch 😊.
I currently work as a paraprofessional at a kindergarten for a 5 year old boy with cerebral palsy. Through this experience, I have gained many valuable skills surrounding special and other needs.
Growing up in a big family, I have been looking after children since I was around 14 years old. However, as I matured I picked up babysitting jobs with various families and expanded my skills through my local community! Since high school, I have continued to work closely with children through my role in a kindergarten (15 hrs per week). I love assisting children with their learning, growing and enjoyment in actives!
