  About Me
Hello there,

My name is Carrie and I am looking for a full-time position in a care-giving role for children any age. I am currently employed as a Restaurant Manager in Oak Bay, but have been employed as a nanny previously with a wonderful family on the island. The family I used to care for consisted of a 4-5 year old girl and a set of boy/girl twins who were 1-2 years old. I worked for this family for 2 full years until the children reached school age, and I am very proud to say that today they remain my "Westcoast Family". I would be happy to offer more information regarding our daily schedule and the manner in which I conduct myself if you have any questions at all.

I am an extremely laid back individual who can function effectively in a chaotic environment. I strive for consistency and always give 100 of myself to whatever task is at hand. I am confident arranging activities, organizing crafts, implementing routines, cooking meals and helping out with organizational needs. I have missed spending my time around children, as I feel I learn just as much from them as they learn from me. I obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology in 2013, focusing mainly on courses geared towards child care and education, and I am eager to return to this field of work.

I have copied the original text I wrote when I began my search for a family initially, because I feel it gives a good representation of myself. Don't hesitate to shoot me an email if you have any questions or need any clarification. Thanks for the time and consideration in advance. :)

"""Dear Family,

I have recently graduated from St. Lawrence University, in upstate New York, completing my Bachelors degree with a major in Psychology. I have been surrounded by children my entire life and have been looking after/caring for others children since the age of 12. With 3 older brothers I have the pleasure to say I am a proud aunt of a 14 y. o. niece, a 7 y. o. nephew, and a 18 m. o. niece, all of whom I have had the great pleasure of caring for on occasion. Besides experience in babysitting from the age of 12-16 I also held a job for one year at my university attending to children in a playgroup, aged 2-3, during the week. As a psychology major I have taken all courses available that focus on the development of children - I in no way claim to be a professional or expert, just enthusiastically interested.

On a personal level I have many interests and hobbies. Growing up with brothers lead me to participate in competitive sports from a very young age. There is almost no sport I have ever tried and disliked. I would be more than willing, and ecstatic, to engage in activities such as swimming, soccer, baseball (or softball), basketball, volleyball, golf etc. Other hobbies include reading, drawing & yoga. I consider myself to be laid-back and accepting of all types of people. I am extremely non-confrontational but am very open to constructive criticism. Additionally, I love pets. Of all and any kind. I would be more than happy to love and care not only for your children but any pets as well. I hope this information reveals my character and interests to you, and if you have any additional questions I would be more than happy to oblige. """
