I am the owner and manager of a small "at home childcare setting" in England. The early years teachers that I employ write and provide me with short observational records and reports of the children we look after in various formats - e.g. hand written and typed word documents. Each document can be around 1000 words (Observational Reports written once per term for each child) or 3000 to 4000 words long (Progress Reports when the children are almost 3 years old). Many of my staff are from Spain and whilst their teaching skills and their enthusiasm for looking after young children is excellent, as are their communication skills generally, their written English language skills are not the strongest. I spend a few hours once per term taking the words that they have written and editing or re-phrasing their reports in order to make them sound more professional. I am increasingly struggling to find the time to do this and would like to hire someone who can do this small job for me on an ongoing basis. Ideally, I am looking for someone who is a parent themselves, who appreciates that the words and feedback that we give to our parent clients is of major importance. The style of writing should be very positive and heart warming. Looking after young children is a very rewarding job and my staff and I love all of the children we look after and wish to provide the very best service to our parents, giving them insightful, informative, but most of all caring and positive feedback about their children's time at our "At home nursery setting". The person that I am looking for, would be able to take the reports and edit or re-write them with autonomy and skill, taking the essence of what has been written by my staff and making it sound much more professional. Its quite a unique skill! The file that I am providing as an example has been written in basic english by one of my staff. Its an observational record about a little boy who is around 18 months old (Rafferty). I am also providing, as an example, a Final Progress Report that I have written myself of another young child (James) in order to give you an idea of the style of writing I use, when editing and re-phrasing the words my staff have provided me with. I would be interested to hear from a freelancer, ideally someone working on their own, who I can develop an ongoing professional relationship with for regular work. I have around 6 Observational Reports to write per month (or around 18 per term) and then another 1 Progress Report to write per month (or approximately 2 per term). In practice the reports may all come once per school term (i.e. every 3 months). When the freelancer receives the handwritten (or already typed up reports) I hope that they could be turned around by the freelancer within a week or two. I am interested to hear from anyone that thinks they could provide this service, what their hourly rate would be and how many words (or observational reports of around 1000 words each) approximately they could complete per hour. I look forward to hearing from you.

Aside from the love of writing, I am a mother of two nice and smart kids. I have an interest in psychology and in the process would love to learn how different kids react to different situations.
I am a professional writer (article, content, academic, copy, line and substantive editing) and a proofreader offering a good amount of experience in editing a wide range of written stuff.
