Hi Whānau, my name is Ben. I'm offering my expertise and knowledge to parents in Christchurch to meet your childcare needs. I started babysitting for a couple of friends ranging from 4 to 9 years old, and still maintain a good relationship with them 10 years on. After working as a youth worker with Maori and Pacific youth from 11-18 years of age, this motivated me to go into study towards an early childhood degree. 3 years in and I am thoroughly enjoying it. I love helping children exceed beyond their potential and watching them develop into independent and confident learners and making sure they are safe and cared for. I am also a relief for a couple of local preschools and have gotten rave reviews of my work there from staff and parents, oh and the kids of course! It would be a pleasure to take care of your child or children, preferably evenings and weekends work well for me as I will be on placement the majority of the year next year. I have a full license so location is no issue for me. I look forward to meeting with you sometime soon. Thanks, I hope to see you soon, Ben. Also, you can find me on facebook at Ben the babysitter.
I have been looking after children for over a decade and still have strong relationships with those children that are now having children of their own. I started relief work in preschools from 2015 and am in my 3rd year at University of Canterbury studying Early childhood education. I plan on graduating in 2020. This degree gives me good tools to support your child's well-being and development while looking after them in a safe and secure environment of your home.
