  About Me
Hello, my name is Safia.

I am a university student studying psychology. I am hoping to become a counselor or something within the field supporting mental health.

I grew up dancing and did a little bit of gymnastics. As I got older, I started dancing competitively-I miss it very much.

I try to stay active even during Covid-19. I miss the gym but I enjoy exercising from home and going for long walks, especially if there is a beach view.

I have grown up with cats but I have an equal amount of love for dogs, very happy to take them for a walk if needed.

I started off volunteering with children when I was about 12/13 at the library. As I got older, I started babysitting and signing up for summer leadership training.

After going through some training and a couple years of being a summer camp leader I decided that I wanted to start babysitting more and learning how to become a nanny.

In high school, I worked part time either before school or after school and very much enjoyed it.
I decided to spend some time abroad in the UK as an au pair as that was a way I could travel for cheap while having a roof over my head for free.

Since then, I have continued to nanny while also gaining some experience in a daycare.
Nannying is a way of bonding with children and I absolutely love it. I find it a very rewarding, as I hope being a counselor is in the future.

Hello, my name is Safia. I am a university student studying psychology and I am looking for a nanny position in Victoria, British Columbia from May 2021 onwards. I am flexible with the start date, whether it is pushed back or forwards a bit.

I have worked as a nanny since 2016. I have also travelled to London and became a live in au pair for three children 2, 4, 6. I have experience as a full day nanny and before/after school. I have also worked in a nursery in the uk working with infants as young as 9 months onwards. When I was a full day nanny, I looked after a 16 month year old. Keeping a routine is extremely important-we would go out to the library, playgroups, and meet others for a playdate while keeping lunch and naptime in place. I enjoy keeping busy with younger children, as well as older children.

While I worked at a private nursery in Edinburgh, UK, I undertook child protection training. (2019).

While at university, I have been looking after twins who are 5 after school. Our routine was walking pickup, provide a snack, take them to the park, help them with math, reading and writing and then do some free play before their dinner.

I am available to look after children 10 months and up. 
Childcare experience within the following age groups:
3 - 12 months, 1 - 2 years, 2 - 5 years, 5 - 10 years, over 10 years of age, twins, triplets  
Graduated High School or Equivalent 
I am currently finishing up my second year of university studying for my undergraduate bachelor's degree in psychology as I hope to go onto doing a postgrad and work in mental health.
