  About Me
Hi, I'm Sarah and I've just finished my 1st year at Queen's University. I have 5 years experience working with children. I've worked at the Ottawa South Community Centre as an After-4 counsellor for children ages 6-12 from 2009-2011. I have also spent the past two summers as a counsellor at YMCA Wanakita, a residential camp in Haliburton. Prior to that and throughout those years I have had experience babysitting children of a variety of ages, between 3 and 14 year. I've had experience working with children in a variety of settings.

Pay is negotiable, and a resume and references are available upon request.

I look forward to hearing from you soon!

  Work Experience & Education Background
5 years experience, 2 references
I have spent 2 years working at the Ottawa South Community Centre as an After-4 counsellor, and a year volunteering prior to that. As a counsellor I had a number of responsibilities. I was required to run a variety of different activities each week ranging from active games to quieter crafts, games, or cooking activities. Groups of children engaging in activities ranged from 5-30 children ages 5/6-12. I was required to help walk groups of children from school to the centre and help prepare a nutritious snack for when they arrived. I also helped in maintaining a clean and organized environment and often ensured that the centre was clean at the end of each day.
I also gained experience working with children at the summer residential camp YMCA Wanakita in 2010 and 2011. As a counsellor I had the opportunity to work with cabin groups varying in ages for 1-2 weeks. As a residential counsellor my responsibilities included organizing activities for cabin groups, staying on a fixed schedule, ensuring the overall well-being for up to 10 children, and ensuring that all children had the best experience possible. I was also fortunate to gain some experience working with special needs children through the Reach for the Rainbow Program. I spent a week doing so in August of 2010, and a month doing so in the summer of 2011. 
Childcare experience within the following age groups:
2 - 5 years, 5 - 10 years, over 10 years of age, special needs children, twins, triplets  
Bachelor's Degree 
I have completed high school at Glebe Collegiate as an honour roll student three years in a row, and am a recipient of the Bob Dagenais award for community involvement. I have been fortunate to continue my studies at Queen's University this year in the Faculty of Arts & Science. I hope to major in health studies with a minor in psychology starting next September.
