Introduction to families
Hello, I am Jess. I am 22 years old and am currently studying to become a child psychologist. At the end of 2020 I completed a BA degree, majoring in Psychology and Sociology, at Stellenbosch University. This year I am doing my honours in psychology through UNISA. I have a great understanding of children, and also have prior experience looking after kids - ageing from 3 months to 9 years. I enjoy being around kids and making a difference in their lives. I am a reliable and honest person, looking to work for a family and gain further experience with children.
I have always been good with children and enjoyed being around them. I have been told that children are drawn to me, just as I am to them. I am a trustworthy, responsible, and respectable young woman. I have experience looking after children from the ages of three months to nine years. I am able to assist in transportation, school curriculum, after school activities, etcetera. I am also able to help with online learning. With regards to new borns/toddlers, I am able to provide the necessary time and attention to the child. I know the importance of the developmental stages I.e "tummy time" and I will make sure that your little one progresses through the stages properly. As I have studied and am furthering my studies in developmental psychology, I am fully aware of the developmental milestones of a child and how to help achieve them.
I love music, I have been playing guitar and singing for 12 years. I am a very creative person, I enjoy drawing. I love animals, and used to horse ride and would like to start again. I like cooking, being creative and exploring with food - I took hospitality in school. Being by the sea makes me happy, and I enjoy walking on the beach, as well as sailing.
