Hi, My name is Kell. I am currently studying a Bachelor of Arts/Education, Early Childhood/Primary, have over ten years experience in long daycare centres, nannying and babysitting; and two munchkins that have taught me more about the needs of children than any of the above. If I could describe myself in five words it would be determined, nurturing, thoughtful, patient and particular. The values I instil in my own children; kindness, independence, positivity, confidence, acceptance and resilience. Little Wild Things goal is to ensure that the families we care for are well looked after in a happy and playful, yet relaxed and warm environment and I ensure to uphold these values! Looking forward to meeting you all soon.
Hello, my name is Lisa, I am mumma to two beautiful, energetic little boys, Oscar and Xander. I have been in Australia for 12 years (originally from the USA), and recently moved to Pottsville from Sydney's Northern Beaches. My professional background is in Healthcare Communications, however since becoming a mum I have done various nannying jobs to fit in with my lifestyle. I love ALL children! I believe nurturing them and teaching them compassion are key to the future of a peaceful planet, children also remind me how important it is to stay playful in our busy parenting lives. I am excited to be part of the Little Wild Thing’s team and offer other parents some free time.
Hello families my name is Kirby. I’m a mum to fairy child toddler, Frankie. Im also a preschool teacher, and a student completing my final year of Bachelor of Education birth-12 years. I have over 10 years experience in long day care centres and preschools, but none of that prepared me for the crazy ride of motherhood! Although some days seem long, the years are short, and Frankie reminds me how important it is to slow down, sniff those flowers, follow the butterfly, and look around to see the beauty in what's around us.
Hello families, my name is Rachel! While I am not yet ‘mum’ to any of my own little wild things, I take my job of Super Aunty very seriously. I have just finished my Bachelor Degree in Health Science and Master's of Speech Pathology. I have over 10 years experience in babysitting and private nannying. First aid and CPR, asthma and anaphylaxis training and WWCC, working with children's check's and blue Card. I have found that children have just as much to teach us (if not more), as we have to teach them. I aim to make parents feel completely at ease, trusting that their most important creation is in patient and understanding hands. I look forward to meeting you and your families!
Hi I'm Jess, I emigrated from the uk in 2015 with my husband to be and my 2 young children Mia and Max.

Hi my name is Carina. I first started babysitting as a teenager in my tiny country town for local families.

Hey all, I am Kerri. I have a diploma in childhood education and care, I also hold a current first aid/CPR/asthma/anaphylaxis certificate and working with children's check. I have 11 years experience working with children in both a nanny and childcare setting, in Australia and overseas. I acknowledge that children have diverse family lives and in turn experience belonging, being and becoming in various ways. By working in partnerships with families, I aspire to encourage and support the children to actively engage in learning. Communicating closely with parents/carers has helped me to learn more about the children, what they need and how I can assist them with their day today routines. My hope for the children in my care is that the memories of their time with me to be safe, secure, respectful, positive, calming and reassuring. I enjoy singing, playing guitar and am also a qualified yoga teacher. I love to travel and love being by the beach.
