My name is Karen and I live in Bells Corners. I have my Early Childhood education diploma from Algonquin College as well as over ten years experience working in both a day-care setting and as a nanny for several families, caring for children from infant up to school age.
Besides my work experience, I am also a mother of four children of my own, now ages 16, 14 and 10 year old twins.

My interests include swimming, cycling, going for walks and reading.

  Work Experience & Education Background
10 years experience, 3 references
My work experience includes working in several day care centres such as 1 and 1/2 years at a Learning Centre and 2 years at a Daycare followed by 1 year at a Daycare from July 1994 until July 1995 to fill a maternity leave position.

After the 1 year Daycare maternity leave position, I worked as a Nanny for a family with 4 children in Orleans from the ages of Newborn to 8 years old as of my commencement date for a little over 2 years until late Summer 1997 just before the birth of my first child. I then became a full time stay at home mother for the next 12 years, raising my 4 children who are now ages 18, 16 and 12 year old twins.

During the 2009/2010 school year, I worked as a volunteer teacher's assistant at a Public School. I enjoyed this very much. I worked mainly with the children that were having difficulty learning. It was very rewarding to see the progress the children had made throughout the year. From Autumn 2010 to Autumn 2011, I worked as a preschool teacher at Grace's Home Daycare in downtown Ottawa. From Autumn 2011 until May 2014, I worked as a live-out Nanny caring for twins from age 12 months old up to 3 and 1/2 years old. Most recently, I worked as a nanny taking care of an 8 month old infant (started at 3 months) and a 5 year old. This position ended April 2016; the mother decided she would prefer to work from her home office from that time forward. 
Childcare experience within the following age groups:
Newborn - 3 months, 3 - 12 months, 1 - 2 years, 2 - 5 years, 5 - 10 years, over 10 years of age, twins, triplets  
High School, Graduated High School or Equivalent, College, CPR Training, First Aid Training, College Child Education Courses 
I obtained my Early Childhood Education diploma from Algonquin College.
