My name is
Hello, my name is Lindsay. I live and work in a rural area in Southern Scotland. I am a highly motivated, caring, positive and outgoing person who loves working with children, adventures and travel.
I am employed as a Swim Teacher and Lifeguard by the local council teaching children from the age or 3-16.
As a result of the pandemic, swimming pools closed, so I initially chose to work for four months in junior schools, assisting with teaching Physical Education classes. I have since retrained as a Community Support Care worker and travel around our local community, assisting with the day to day care of the vulnerable and elderly.
I have always wanted to travel and work with children from a young age and would love to broaden my horizons into other cultures and ways of life.
I am a very active and outdoorsy person as I have grown up in the countryside with my family who are also outdoor enthusiasts. I love sports and I am a member of athletics, field hockey and swimming clubs where I both participate and help out with coaching and I also, cycle and hike whenever I have the opportunity.
I am very hardworking, trustworthy and honest and always strive to complete everything I do, to the best of my ability.
I would love the opportunity to get involved and assist with a fun and outgoing family.
I have quite a lot of experience working and caring for children. I work as a swim teacher at my local swimming pool, where I take swimming lessons for all abilities and all ages from 3-16. I take group lessons which can be up to 8 children which takes lots of patience. I also deliver 1:1 lessons, both for my employers and for the children of my friends and family.
During my Easter and Summer school holidays I have worked for a local Leisure company where I have delivered in Sports and Creative Activity Clubs. This has provided me further experience of working with a wide variety of children. It has taught me how to be patient and also to think on my feet when children require further support in activities. I always ensure that I value and respect every child that I am with and try to provide them with the best experience possible, so that they leave for the day with a smile on their face.
I also have done babysitting within my family and friends.
