Hello, my name is Jamie I’m 23 years old & originally from Northern Ireland. I have been working with children for the last four years starting off as an Au pair in Australia & New Zealand and then entering the Early childhood education sector as a reliever & recently taking the opportunity to teach fulltime with an amazing centre.
I have 4 years’ experience working in a direct one to one and one to many, with children across a range of ages, abilities and with a range of needs. This experience includes bathing, feeding and bedtime routines and management, designing and undertaking both educational and free play activities, and assisting with school work/ areas of developmental focus.
I have experience working with children with cognitive and psychological issues and am able to adapt my style as needed to best suit the child I am working with.
I have strong relationship skills and while I enjoy being part of a team, I am also comfortable working autonomously.
I enjoy every moment working with children I love going home with a smile on my face from all the happy moments the children have brought to my day. I am so grateful for my job and the opportunities I have been given I am also grateful for the children and whanau I work with every day. I love the great outdoors & going to the beach! I also love listening to music. In my spare time I love to go on road trips to explore the rest of this amazing country.
