  About Me
I am currently full but am available for the occasional date night. Come on Mom and Dad, you deserve time alone together.. You require help with your most precious assets, your family and your home and I am here to help you out. I have raised my own large family and my young grandchildren live far away so would love helping you out with your children, pets, and home.

I have been working as a Nanny for a wonderful family of 6 the past year and am loathe to leave them but due to their changing needs they will require full time care in the Fall of 2017. Since then I have worked for a family with a Single Dad and two young boys, they’ll be transitioning to daycare in the fall of 2020 and I’m loathe to leave them too.

With my many diverse interests I am currently available for only part time work as a Nanny but I do have very flexible hours that could include evenings, overnights and weekends.

Young and energetic grandma who loves to read to children, bake, teach, play and go for outings of all kinds. I am very willing to work with your priorities and use your child-rearing methods.

I am available for anything and everything to help you and your family enjoy a peaceful, fun and organized life, from preparing delicious meals and snacks to organizing closets and walking your dog, helping with homework and supervising music practice.

I am a former private piano instructor as well and love to sing and dance with children.
I am also a former Foster Care Mom dealing with urgent care situations, so I have the knowledge and ability to work with every type of situation and diverse temperaments.

I have loved working with children and youth of all ages for many years, volunteering in the community, church and schools.

I value a home where there is love, routine, kind discipline, chores and order where learning, growth and fun go hand in hand.

Please contact me to see if I can become a part of your family support and have a wonderful day.

  Work Experience & Education Background
5 years experience, 3 references
I am currently full at the moment except for the occasional date night.. Mom and Dad need a life too..
Have done everything from administering medications, diaper changing, naps, story time, lots of outings, library visits, delicious meals, from scratch soups, muffins, cookies and teaching the older ones to bake, laundry and cleaning and organizing. Helping the children manage their emotions and making good choices to making up outrageous stories, (the sillier and crazier the better) singing, dancing with the babies, which they love and dealing with the inevitable squabbles, tears and joy. all in a day's work..

I am a Former Special Care Foster Mom caring for children in my home coming out of extreme circumstances, helping them feel loved and safe. I have training and experience dealing with not only the children but their parents and the referring agencies.

I am a Former private piano instructor and have taught sporadically in my home since I was 19, teaching and loving every kind of child's ability and personality.

Along with my varied professional experience I have also raised my own grown children and am loving being a long distance grandparent.

I have also volunteered for over 30 years from preschool age children to Young Adults, teaching ethics, singing, handbell choir, baking, crafts, reading and going on every kind of field trip imaginable. I enjoyed spending an entire week on two separate occasions with my children at the Calgary Zoo zoo school. I have also been a Girl's Camp Counsellor for girls aged 12-18.

All of this wealth of experience has taught me that children come to earth with a unique set of gifts, talents, struggles and personalities. It is our job as anyone who interacts with children to help them discover their unique gifts and to enable them to live a rich full life that by their being here they will have contributed to the greater good of humanity.

It is the most challenging and rewarding job on earth and I am proud to be called a professional Nanny and aim to raise awareness of the importance of the role of the caregiver in society.
