Hi! My name is Molly and im a university student home for the summer studying Otago. I'm 19 turning 20 in February. I currently do hold a primary job but am looking to pick up more work over this period. My schedule can be quite flexible.

I don't have any previous offical experience in babysitting but I have spent a few days around young children in service acts at my local preschool and my baby nephew. Even though I don't have official experience, I am responsible and caring and care deeply about the people around me. I've got a cheerful and enthusiastic personality who is also creative and crafty. I love to draw and colour in my spare time to wind down.

I love children and find them genuinely interesting to listen to with all their wild ideas and creative solutions to problems that arise .

I have two dogs and two cats so I'm really comfortable around any size or requirements around pets. I have a full drivers license so I am able to pick up or drop off children to school/kindergartens

I really hope that you consider me to look over your precious ones
