My name is Brooke and I would like to offer either my child sitting or educational assistance services.

*a lot more time available in school holidays*

A little about me:
I have worked in schools for the last seven years specializing in special education including autism spectrum disroder, global development delay and other intellectual challenges and challenging behaviours.
I also work in mainstream settings.
I work primarily with children aged 4 to 8 but am happy to take younger and older.
My 'big goals' I thrive on are language development, literacy and appropriate social behaviour for all children while still being able to have a fun time.
I go for Port Power! (But dont let that stop you reading!)
I also really like animals, I love dogs of all breeds (yes your big vicious staffy or rottie can jump on me it'll be the highlight of my day) but I am wary of snakes! They're cool if they stay in their tank though.
I do like to have messy fun, like shaving foam and food dye but I do not conduct any of these sort of activities without permission.
I'm recently married to my best friend and we spend a lot of our free time fishing or crabbing.
I can be bit quiet at first with other adults but once I'm out of my shell that's it!
I am more than happy to watch the same movie 100 times in one day if I have to but I do encourage other activties and prefer technology to be a last resort but if you as the parent or caregiver are happy for the TV or iPad to be on then I'm more than happy to flow with that.


I have a working with childrens police clearance, authority to work in DECD 2019&2020, Basic First Aid, 004 first aid and provide all parents a copy of these along with a copy of my drivers license. I do hold other qualifications such as special education trainings, intervention training and a range of others relevant to my SSO position in schools and am happy to also show yous these but there are a lot to list and often the response is "what's that?" Which is 110% fine!
I have my own car and license and will be using it for travel to you if you want services at home.
I do not have a car seat but with permission I am happy to take children out to places I am comfortable (depends on ages/ amounts of children/ etc).
I am also happy to take them out via public transport if they're into those fun rides.
I am happy to assist with toileting, eating and general hygiene needs and have a lot of experience in these areas.

I can swim and am happy to take one or two children to a water park/ centre again depending on ages and other factors.
I grew up in the Semaphore area so like it a lot and am very familiar with it.

On offer:
I am happy to offer my child minding/ baby sitting services for children of any age and am available most weekdays from as early as 5:30am from as low as $20 an hour (depending on times/ additional duties you may require of me).

I am also happy to offer my SSO and tutoring services for children pre school- year three. I have a range of resources I have either bought or created in my own time and am happy to discuss further how I run this as it will always be different for every child because every child learns differently and has different needs. As low as $25 an hour.

I am also happy to offer both services and juggle it a bit- we can create a schedule that suits what you want.

I am happy to prepare their food and will most likely be happy to cook.
I am also happy to do light house work (this may be additional depending what) with the agreement it be done either during nap/ sleep time or in an area where I am not expected to be too far from the kids for their safety.

My rules:
Before being left unattended with your child (ren) they must meet me first with yourself there (I've been in situations where I've come to houses and the kids are asleep- a lot don't like waking up to a stranger in the house and I don't blame them!)

I will have questions that need to be answered before being left unattended with any child for their safety e.g.
Medical conditions
Challenges/ things that may easily upset them that may not be predictable
Food allergies
Likes/ dislikes
Anything important to know, e.g. "oh by the way they like hiding" is always good to know.
Its purely to get to know children a bit before I'm left with them.

Experienced with:
Autism spectrum disorder
Global development delay
Challenging behaviours
Severe dyslexia
Children who experience seizures
Fussy eaters!
Kids who still need a bit of help in the toilet.
Kids who like messy fun.
Kids who like clean fun.
Kids who like to run!
Kids who like to climb.
Kids who like to hide.
Kids who want to learn and kids who just want to be kids, wing it by the minute and just have fun.

Happy to chat further about myself, happy to chat further about yourself, your wants and your needs!
Please email or text any questions, I can try and answer them on the phone but there's a good chance I may freeze for a second if put on the spot with a hard to answer one!

Happy to meet for a chat.
I am also happy to send a selfie first! I totally get its nerve racking having someone rock up when you have no idea what to expect- I have tried to upload photos on here but the file is always too large! Will eventually get out my laptop one day to reduce the quality.

Any questions just ask!
