My work provided variety of activites the child and I were involved in.

My work would be at a client's house for eight hour shifts. I cared for from one to three children, some of the children I cared for had behaviour issues or a disability such as Autistic Spectrum Disorder. I enjoyed the work and believe I made a difference to these children's lives.

Pros

Playgroup in the park and visits to the beach while working.

Cons

Some jobs had long hours.

Terrific Employer

I’m pleased to be working at the Y: the management and rostering team are sharp and compassionate and always interested in how they can do things better/feedback. As a casual, I receive regular shifts and great support in my work.

Productive and fun environment.

Morning shifts are easygoing and relaxed, whereas after shifts are a little more busier as the children are energised. The job includes preparing meals, setting up activities and interacting and engaging with children while maintaining a safe atmosphere.

Pros

Hanging out with children

Cons

Short hours
