I have experience taking care of children in both school and home settings. I previously taught at PAP kindergarten for 2.5 years before working at Joey's childcare centre for 2 years. I left to work in the corporate world for a short period while I continued to take care of my neighbours' and relatives' children on an ad hoc basis.
Eventually, I decided to take the plunge to leave the corporate world and work full-time with kids. I obtained a Diploma in Learning Disabilities Management and Child Psychology from College of Allied Educators Pte Ltd and worked at Kaleidoscope therapy centre for 1.5 years thereafter.
Now, I work at a preschool (12-48 months old) and am having so much fun teaching and playing with the kids.
I am comfortable handling infants and have previously worked with families of various races and nationalities such as Finnish, South American and Lebanese families etc. For children above the age of 2, I can engage them in activities like arts and crafts, games like role playing and teach them phonics as well as Mandarin.
Ivy is very punctual, professional and friendly. I felt reassured leaving my baby with them while staying in Singapore which was important as I'm here only temporarily. I would recommend babysitting service, I wish Caregiver Asia had the service in all of the countries we have to travel to. Having a centralised professional agency with a local office to source the babysitters gave me the confidence to make the original booking and I am really glad that I did. C. ONeal
