  About Me
 
I grew up in High River as the youngest of two children. I enjoyed outdoor activities and creating adventure. Once I graduated from Notre Dame Collegiate in 2009, I left AB and moved across country to New Brunswick where I studied for 3 years at UNB in Anthropology. I then moved to Vancouver for 2 years and studied Museum Studies. I graduated in April 2015 with a Bachelor's degree.
I love museums and spend a great deal of my time in them. If I am not exploring museums, I am playing with my dog, reading, swimming, or spending time with family.

What we are looking for:

I am currently a live-out nanny for a family with two children ages 1. 5 (boy) & 3 (girl). We are looking for someone with a girl around the same age to share as a part time nanny-share. This would mean I am the nanny for both families and would possibly share residences. We are looking for someone in the far NW, Tuscany, Bearspaw, etc.

What would it look like?

Depending on your schedule it could look you dropping off your kids at their house or me picking them up.

This is a great opportunity for someone looking to save money on childcare.

Why are we looking?

There are a lot of benefits to nannies and there are a lot of benefits to a day home. Having a nanny allows you to dictate some household duties to her as well (light housekeeping, grocery pick-up etc. ) it also allows for the children to get out into the world more (Parks, the zoo, etc). But it can lack in some social development for the children.
With a day home there are strict drop off and pick up times, there is no ability to take some household duties off of yourself, and they can be expensive. But they do have a great social aspect.

We want the best of both, a nanny that has the ability to take some duties off of yourself, and raise the kids in their own home. And we want to create a social aspect to the daily routine. A nanny-Share allows us to do both these things.

A little about me:

I grew up in High River as the youngest of two children. I enjoyed outdoor activities and creating adventure. Once I graduated from Notre Dame Collegiate in 2009, I left AB and moved across country to New Brunswick where I studied for 3 years at UNB in Anthropology. I then moved to Vancouver for 2 years and studied Museum Studies. I graduated in April 2015 with a Bachelor's degree.
I love museums and spend a great deal of my time in them. If I am not exploring museums, I am playing with my dogs, reading, swimming, or spending time with family.
I have continually provided childcare for families beginning in 2006. I have been a part of volunteer childcare programs for years beginning in 2006. Since then I have frequently provided childcare for my family and friends for both extended and short periods. I have 2 years experience nannying 4 children full-time, and had their friends and family routinely drop by so the amount would extend to up to 7. I have just begun with my third family and we've decided that we'd love to have another playmate for their little girl.

I have always been around children and understand that each child has their own quirks and necessities. Each child requires a different aspect of care, intellectual, activity based, but most importantly, always stimulating.

Additional Experiences/Qualifications/Preferences:
Growing up, my mother owned a catering company from which I learned various meal preparation techniques and recipes. During university I worked as a server/bartender/manager for which I did event planning and coordination, supervision of staff, maintained cleanliness of restaurant, and consistently multi-tasked. Each of these experiences are valuable assets in the childcare/housekeeping industry and have prepared me for these aspects of work.
