  About Me
Dear Parents,

My name is Shirley. I have a pleasant personality and a positive attitude. I am loving , caring and responsible. I am kind, enthusiastic, self motivated, energetic, compassionate and patient . I am hardworking and organized. I had my university education in China, with a major in Education and I had been a primary /kindergarten teacher before I came to Canada. I loved children and I enjoyed my work .

I have a natural affinity with children and I 'm passionate about working with children. Since I came to Canada, I had been worked as a childcare provider for families with kids ranging from newborn to toddler to school age , and I have developed strong bonds with the children. I love to inspire their little fresh minds and I can provide a variety of fun, educational programs for the children. I would always engage the children in new activities and be creative and fun. I would do arts and crafts, imaginative play, games, sing songs, play music, dance and reading for and with them. I am attentive, respectful and encouraging with small children. I try to guide them and provide them with the tools to make good decisions. It's the most important job I can think of, and the most rewarding.

Most importantly, what children need is love, to live in an environment fulfilled with love, they will be happy and in that way learn to love, and this is the most precious gift one can cherish. Besides physical care of the children, I would nurture their precious mind, let them grow up safely and healthily in body and in spirit.

I am also very health conscious and pay lots of attention to a healthy living style. I'd like to take the kids out , rain or shine, and had a lot of outdoor activities. I try to let them have the fresh air and sunshine and get close to nature as much as possible

I would prepare balanced nutritious healthy foods for the kids. I try to avoid too much meat, sugar.. I prefer a more vegetarian style which has proved to be very beneficial for kids as well as adults.

I am open minded. I can follow the directions as well as take the initiatives when necessary.

I have childcare first aid and CPR and Foodsafe certificate and clear criminal records check. I can provide excellent references.

You can contact me if you think I might be a match for your family.Thank you.
