  About Me
Hello. My name is Chrysta and I am 33 years old.

I believe that what sets me apart from others is my patience for children. I understand and respect that children do all things in their own time. My approach encourages children in crafting, active play, and creative learning, through a play-based system of interaction and instruction. Working so closely with children I have been present during some times of upset. During these times I utilize positive reinforcement, comforting touch and emotional recognition/mirroring to help the children through it.

  Work Experience & Education Background
5 years experience, 3 references
My most recent position was at an art based daycare in New Westminster. While there, I was responsible for planning after-school activities as well as caring for the children. With the freedom allotted to me, I introduced several new activities such as; science projects. In one such science project, we learned how chlorophyll covers the true color of leaves by extracting their true colors, S. T. E. M challenges such as Santa's Parachute: an activity that challenges children to create a parachute using everyday objects, star of the week, sewing and much more. I thoroughly enjoyed the time I spent with all of the children at the daycare.

In addition to my experience with older children, I have many years of experience with infants, including newborns. I have no problem changing diapers, feeding, bathing and of course entertaining little ones. I have assisted with potty training and other daily hygiene routines (such as learning to brush their teeth). Some of my friends have noted that I have that natural maternal bounce and sway when holding little ones. In fact, anyone that knows me knows how much I love children as I never stop talking about them. They really are the light in my life.
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, special needs children, twins, triplets  
High School, Graduated High School or Equivalent, College, CPR Training, First Aid Training, Life experience 
I have been caring for children on and off since I was 13 and obtained the St. John's Ambulance Babysitting certification. I have since gone on to obtain my Responsible Adult Certification. In the future, I plan to return to school for my Educational Assistant Diploma. I have a deep seeded love for children of all ages and am looking forward to a lifelong career working with them.

Jade Sharkey 
Jade and I are really good friends so when she was ready to return to work I was asked to be their daughters nanny. When I started watching Morgan she was just over a year old and I was one of the only people she trusted other than her direct family. I worked for them for just over six months with three of them being an official employment. The only reason I don't still nanny Morgan is because they relocated to Kelowna BC. I miss Morgan all the time and really enjoy our phone calls.

Bill is Jade's husband and Morgan's daddy.
