  About Me
 
Hello,
I am Anita, a caring, compassionate and competent individual with an extensive professional background in healthcare. I have practiced as a registered nurse for 18. 5 years. My undergraduate degree is from UBC. I am also a mother of a first year university student. I have raised my son with a strong focus on his academics, sports, music and also service, all of which he still actively participates in with great joy. I have multiple academic and non academic courses in art and design, as well as continuing education in healthcare. I very much enjoy the patience, nurturing and also educational aspect of both my profession and of being a mother. I have volunteer experience within the community over the years. I am seeking to work part time with families and provide loving care to a variety of age groups. Open, clear and respectful communication pathways are a must. I swim and walk routinely, and have a zest for life. I look forward to meeting you and your family.

  Work Experience & Education Background
 
10 years experience, 2 references
My largest and most comprehensive training in childcare is being a parent myself for the past 19 years. I have also been a nanny for 15 months now, working primarily with three families over this time. Two of these contracts have now completed, with those children entering after school programs. I also do periodic childcare for families ( during my nonscheduled days) needing a few hours to themselves.

I believe strongly in one to one nurturing of each child, a gentle and loving approach with patience and kindness, teaching by modeling, teaching boundaries, and setting guidelines within the family's expectations.

With the very young, these are the most formative years, and I believe in providing a safe, welcoming, clean, happy and loving environment. This includes, good nutrition, exercise, fresh air daily, proper rest, and also gently socializing children within the family and also gradually in the larger community as children grow. To me, manners and respect are, and continue to be, important. Learning how to be part of a greater whole by modeling, gentle verbal correction, and explanation to an age appropriate level. Play is also very important, tactile stimuli such as sand boxes, play ground as age appropriate, music, art. and organized community activities. I do prefer to stay away from electronic stimuli except for music, though will support each family's decision with respect to limits in these areas. Open, respectful communication within families and caregivers is a must.
I would be happy to connect with you and your family with regards to your needs.
