  About Me
 
I am a mature, patient, energetic and optimistic woman, originally from the Czech Republic. I genuinely care for other people and love working with children. I enjoy doing all kinds of indoor and outdoor activities with children, encouraging their creativity, imagination and healthy development. I am able to get down to their level, see the world through their eyes and be silly and playful. At the same time, I gently but firmly set limits and boundaries and consistently enforce them. The child‘s safety is always my primary concern.

For the past year I worked as a nanny for a family with four children (age 8, 6, 5 and 2) in St. Albert, Alberta.

Before that, I took care of a one-year-old boy in Edmonton. Having been his full-time for more than a year, I have gained valuable experience with toddler development, daily routines and discipline.

Before starting this employment, I took the Training for Live-In Caregivers at TLC Edmonton. This full-time, six-month training course prepares students for all aspects of the caregiver/nanny job. As part of the school curriculum, I volunteered in a bilingual German-English preschool.

I am very health-oriented, and like being active and spending time outdoors on my bike or just walking, doing yoga and swimming. I also enjoy baking healthy treats and breads and cooking from scratch. I like learning new things; I am flexible and able to quickly adapt to new situations.

My hope is to apply all my skills and abilities to make a difference in the life of a wonderful family.

Thank you for reading my profile, and I look forward to hearing from you.
