  About Me
 
Hello my name is Margaret. If you are looking for an experienced, independent, well organized and self-reliant live-in caregiver to look after your loved ones I am the person for you.

I am reliable, honest, and hard working. I am from Poland and have extensive experience working as a Nanny/Personal Assistant. I have worked in the United States, England and now in Canada. I have just finished up a live-in caregiver assignment with a young family in Winnipeg. I have more than 12 years experience of child care with kids ranging from newborn to pre-teens. It included a child with autism.

My responsibility for the children and the household they resided in included a variety of tasks such as: preparing healthy and nutritious food for the whole family, taking kids to different activities like the park or playground, museums, play-dates, school, helping with homework, reading to them, bathing them, putting them to bed and much more.

I was also responsible for: laundry, ironing, food shopping, and tiding the house. I use a play-based learning approach where the children are learning through games and activities, arts and crafts and reading books. Safety and well-being of your children is my utmost priority. You could go to work knowing the children and house were in good hands under my care and supervision.

I have developed an excellent rapport with the children and parents. I know how to relate well to children and can honestly say I have a true joy for taking care of them. It means a lot to me to see them happy with all the things we do together. They can tell how much I care as my feelings are genuine and sincere.

I should point out I successfully raised twin daughters before becoming a nanny. They are doing well as adults living and working in Canada.

I have also experience taking care of elderly people with health issues. It involved taking her/him to a doctor, cooking a healthy meal according to a strict diet program, refilling and following the medicine regime, providing company and overall support to meet their life needs.

As an independent caregiver I have learned to identify and solve problems as they arise. Helping me in this regard is the fact I am flexible and a team player with a positive attitude. I am always willing to learn new things to satisfy my curiosity.

I have also attended classes/workshops on health and safety and food hygiene.

I am a passionate person and one of my real passions is cooking. Most if not all of my caregiver families have really appreciated my advanced cooking skills. My concern for healthy living is apparent.

I am not just a Nanny, Au-pair or Care Giver. I am a life style coach, a friend, and one who fits well within a family household. I enjoy the work I do and know you will be grateful for entrusting me with your children's care.

Thank you :)
