  About Me
Hi there.
My name is Tara, I am a Masters student home from studying abroad at the University of Kent. I am originally from Toronto, Ontario, until moving to Victoria in 2017.
As an individual, I am very organized and definitely an A-type personality. I am family oriented and I enjoy doing activities as a group. That being said, I see the value in independent play and activity. I truly believe that kids have just as much to say and share as adults do, and they can teach us lessons just as we strive to do for them. I think that discipline and structure play an important role in childrens lives, and though they may fight it as I know I did when I was younger ultimately it can be a comforting constant in life that should be held to.
As for certifications, I am certified in First Aid and the Ontario High Five Certification - which is a program that teaches the principles of Healthy Child Development and is the Ontario government's policy working towards establishing a quality standard for children's sport and recreation.

I have experience with infants and children up to middle school age, as well as with young adults with special needs. I am open to working with multiple kids, I come from a family with 14 nieces and nephews - so numbers don't bother me.

My primary job throughout the last two years has been as a support worker for residents with intensive medical needs. As a result, I am trained on medical administration, tracheotomy care, and feeding and medication intravenous management.

I am currently still writing my dissertation, however I am available for up to 30 hours a week all summer. I am very aware of the worries concerning COVID 19 right now and hope to work with any family willing to agree to safety precautions in order to keep both parties healthy. I am available weekdays, evenings and weekends.
If you think we may be a good fit, I would love to hear from you.

  Work Experience & Education Background
10 years experience, 2 references
Not only am I the aunt to fourteen nieces and nephews, all of whom I care for frequently, my family also fosters children from the age of infancy to approximately 12 years old. Since we began fostering, I have been very involved in the care for the children.
Additionally, I have experience as a part-time nanny for four children under the age of nine, a job which I held for almost the entirety of my first year of university. The summers of 2011 to 2014, I counselled at Joy Bible Camp in Bancroft Ontario, and was the caretaker of cabins from the age of seven all the way to 15.
Finally, experience that may be unique to others is my experience a as a support worker throughout the years. In addition to my recent employment as a support worker for adults with special needs, I have previously worked as program leader during the summer of 2015 at a camp for young adults with special needs. I worked with individuals with a variety of disabilities and was responsible for all aspects of their care, including eating, bathroom needs, swimming aid, and more. It was this job experience that truly helped me learn to be flexible and adapt my behavior and leadership style to the particular individual who I was working with a strategy that is helpful when caring for children as well. 
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  
Graduated High School or Equivalent, Bachelor's Degree, CPR Training, First Aid Training, High Five Certification 
I have am currently finishing my Masters degree in Security and Terrorism. I am in the dissertation writing phase and will be done by August 14.
