  About Me
I love working with children and seeing the world through their eyes. I think my main responsibility is helping them learn and socialize with others through games and activities, and helping them develop a sense of responsibility and pride in themselves and their work through small tasks and helping throughout the day.

Over many years of full time childcare work, I have gained experience in planning and supervising day trips, finding activities for rainy days, and planning and preparing healthy meals and snacks. I like to have a flexible plan for the day that incorporates several different kinds of learning and play.

I believe that a child is happiest when all caregivers are on board with plans and strategies, and I am happy to keep parents up to date with events and activities throughout the day and make a plan that fits with any household schedules and time lines.

  Work Experience & Education Background
5 years experience, 5 references
I have been working with children full time as a nanny for over 6 years, which involves planning full days or part days with activities out and about or within the home, and planning and making healthy snacks and meals ahead of time to correspond with our schedule, and following several children's schedules at once and create easy transitions between meals, baths, and bedtimes.

I believe in encouraging child-led activities within reasonable and reliable boundaries-- guiding them towards new activities and opportunities to help them learn and grow. Since children learn and develop through play, it's most important to me to include several different types of play each day such as active, creative, and social to develop both fine and gross motor skills and their social and behavioural skills, as well as daily outings to help them explore and learn from the world around them. I have experience in the last year of designing outings are of low risk to Covid and are within the provincial guidelines, which I also follow in my free time. 
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  
High School, Graduated High School or Equivalent, College, Certified Nanny Training, CPR Training, First Aid Training, College Child Education Courses 
As well as extensive personal learning experience, I am certified for family childcare through an 8 week course at Victoria CCRR, as well as having taken Early Childhood Education courses from Camosun College. I am dedicated to expanding my professional development through courses and other learning materials. I am currently enrolled in several online Early Childhood Education seminars this summer and am currently taking a refresher course for written and oral fluency in French.
