FIRST AID – (Completed) September 2013

I come from West Auckland where I have grown up with my mom, dad and two younger brothers. I love working with children of all ages. From about the age of 8 I’ve known that I’ve wanted to be a Nanny. I’ve been babysitting since I was 14. I did early childhood education at high school and completed a level 5 certificate in Nanny Education where I have done 13 weeks of practical placement; 1 in an early childhood centre, 2 live out nanny placements and 1 live in nanny placement.

I enjoy going out to the beach for walks and spending time with my family and friends. I love to travel and have been to Fiji, Australia, Singapore, France, Germany, Italy and Austria. I hope to be able to further my travels in the future, as I would love to go back to Italy, also it’s my dream to visit and work in New York City.

My Philosophy
I believe that each child should be recognized and respected as an individual regardless of culture, ethnicity, age, religion or ability and children should be able to develop and explore in a safe environment that helps encourage their holistic development. Also children should be allowed to be children and that we as adults are there to provide a safe and nurturing environment where the child can have maximum opportunities to develop holistically. I also believe that it is important to model the behaviour that I want to teach.

Ashton Warner practical placements;

Family placement – McKeown family – August 2013

This placement was my last and I did it as a live in Nanny for 2 weeks (Monday-Friday). I had 3 children; two girls aged 3 yrs. and a boy aged 6 yrs. I really loved this placement as I got to do more activities as the children were a bit older, also I was involved in making all the children’s breakfast, lunches and even prepared and cooked dinner twice a week. I loved being with this family and felt very welcomed.

I thoroughly enjoyed this placement; I had 4 children, aged 6 months (girl), 2.9yrs (girl), 4 yrs. (girl) and 6 yrs. (boy). I felt very welcomed and I loved the busyness. During this placement I did heaps of infant care, I did everything from changing nappies to bath time.

On this placement I did a lot of activities with the girls, such as; baking, salt dough, heaps of arts and crafts, building huts, role play, water play, puzzles and many more activities. I continue to keep in touch with this family as I built a very strong bond with both the mother and the kids.
