  About Me
 
Hello. My name is Rachel and I am currently completing my third year at the University of Victoria studying psychology. I am quite passionate about working with children and am focussing my degree on early childhood development. I have been working on and off in childcare since I was 12, and have babysat and nannied for many families over the years, including my own nieces and nephews. I have experience with children of all ages, including young infants. I am a very polite and happy person and will adapt to the ways that different parents/caregivers raise their children. My skill set includes cooking, cleaning, playtime activities, arts and crafts, general medical care, hygienic practices, schoolwork aid, and providing a happy, healthy, and comfortable environment. I am very willing to take children on outings to parks or beaches, or to do general errands and housekeeping. My main goal is to keep your children safe, happy, and healthy while I am with them. I can provide emotional support if needed and am very open and caring. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me. I am available full-time from May to August, and part-time from September to April as I am a full-time student.
Thank you very much for your consideration.

  Work Experience & Education Background
 
8 years experience, 2 references
I have been caring for children of various ages since I was young and have been officially babysitting and nannying since I was twelve. I have two young nieces and two nephews that I regularly care for and a younger brother who I helped raise due to our mother's late work schedule. I have mainly cared for the children in my family, but have had other babysitting and nannying experience over the years. My mother raised us around many other children (she ran a part-time daycare out of our home) and in a loving environment full of arts and crafts, cooking, technical skills (sewing, cleaning, fixing broken items around the house, etc. ), and general adventure and fun. In high school I was a part of our Leadership program, and with a few friends created an Earth Day assembly that we presented in elementary schools around the city for four years. I have always had an interest in working with children, and am going to be focussing my degree around early childhood development.
