  About Me
 
My name is Maddy and I am currently a server, dance instructor, and undergrad student at UVic studying psychology/pre med. I have lived on the island with my parents and my two younger siblings for over 10 years. I am a dancer as well as a dance instructor for children ages 4-12 from September through May. I absolutely love being around kids. Though I do not have any professional training (i. e. early childcare credentials) I have been taking care of and working with children since I started babysitting my own siblings at age 11. Additionally, I have taken multiple child and youth care and social work courses during my undergrad degree. Since then I have had tons of babysitting experience. I come from a close-knit family and have always been very close with my younger brother and sister. I love kids, as well as animals (especially dogs). I am hardworking and committed and am hoping to take a break from the restaurant business this summer. I also have numerous references that can be made available to an employer if needed.

Thank you for your consideration :)

  Work Experience & Education Background
 
9 years experience, 3 references
Hi there. I am a twenty year old university student studying at UVic. I am currently halfway completed a bachelor of science in psychology and I plan to attend grad school prior to my degree. I have about ten years of babysitting experience and I received my babysitting certificate in 2008. I have experience caring for children as young as 6 months old, and also have experience caring for multiple children at a time (the most I have ever cared for at once was three children all under the age of 4).

I have 4 years of customer service experience through waitressing and hostessing.

I have three years experience of teaching dance to children from 4 years old up to children aged thirteen. I currently teach hip hop classes two days a week in Sooke, BC.

In June & July of 2016 I travelled to India to live for two months and work as a volunteer in a Childcare and Education program where I earned a certificate of completion through Global Volunteer International.

Additionally, in April of 2017 I accompanied a family on an international vacation to care for their five year old son with special needs. On this vacation I also worked alongside a volunteer organization called "Blue Skies over Autism. " 
 
 
Childcare experience within the following age groups:
3 - 12 months, 1 - 2 years, 2 - 5 years, 5 - 10 years, over 10 years of age  
Education/Training:
High School, Graduated High School or Equivalent 
I completed the "babysitting course" 10 years ago. I have my high school diploma and am currently working towards my bachelors degree in psychology at the University of Victoria.
