  About Me
 
Hey parents. I am a 19 year old, Lambrick Park High School graduate (honours), who has a true passion for child-care, with a history of over 10 families experience to prove it. In the future I will hopefully go on to teaching children at an elementary level, possibly as an English teacher. in a foreign country, but for the time being I would be honoured to have a job nannying, so I may enjoy my time saving up for school by doing something I love. I am a very creative person, who loves art, dancing (8 years graded-class experience), and school in general (oddly enough), so I would be happy to help your child with any level of reading, math, science or general homework/school work if required. I happily clean, tidy and maintain the households I work in so you may come home to your child for quality, not clean-up time, and will take-on any other appropriate responsibilities my employer requires. I have worked with (nannying) children ages 1-12, and can provide many contact numbers for reference of families I have sat for in the past. I do not have a vehicle/driver's license, but love long walks and have plenty of energy to run around with the little ones and get all that energy out before bed. Am also very comfortable/have lots of experience soothing children to sleep who are used to being put down by their parents, and am not unfamiliar with the co-sleeping method. Bottom line, I adore children, and if I could help out your family by doing what truly makes me happiest, I would be very honoured and thankful. Starting rate: $15/hour. Cheers. P. S. Am willing to travel (by bike or bus) up to an hour away if necessary, coming from the Fern-wood area (near Hillside Mall).

I have worked for Nadine for about a year and half, fluctuating between full and part time. I still leave Friday nights open for this family, as I am very close with the children and will maintain a connection with them as long as I may/as long as the parents require my assistance.
