  About Me
My name is Kathy and I am a healthy, happy, young-at-heart, grandmother who is patient and caring. I am available to babysit within the OTTAWA area preferably (afternoons & early evenings) during the week.

I have babysat my 3 grandchildren, as needed, for the past 10 years, and they are my great joy.

The only other experience I have had was back in the 60's as a teenager when I volunteered to babysit a young child with Thalidomide (born without arms and legs) - he was adorable. Our school had sent a few volunteers to give his parents a break. The school advised me that the parents always requested me the most - I think it was because I am calm and easy-going and the little fella took to me.

I do play games and make meals when I babysit my grandchildren, and used to give them baths (when they were little), and put them to bed..

I have references from my own family (from babysitting my grandchildren). I like playing and reading with children, and can certainly do homework with them in french and english.

I do try to impart the importance of being fair and kind to other children, as it it's a good motto to live by and it greatly helps them develop friendships.

I also adhere to providing good, healthy meals /treats and getting fresh air, as much as possible.

I have a late model car and can pick up children from school, but do not currently have car seats.

Working from approx noon to 6:00 p. m. on weekdays, suits me very well, perfectly actually. I am looking for $18+ hour, if possible.

  Work Experience & Education Background
10 years experience, 0 references
I have babysat very young babies and up to 10 years old, so far (my grandchildren) and continue to do so occasionally on weekends. I am responsible and reliable. I made meals, helped them with homework, bathed and put them to bed with a story.

Although I have no formal experience with other families, I have a great deal with my own grandchildren, on a part-time basis, for the last 10 years, so far.

I could certainly get references from my family members, but I am not sure that that would be considered acceptable as formal references.

Childcare experience within the following age groups:
Newborn - 3 months, 1 - 2 years, 5 - 10 years, special needs children  
High School, Graduated High School or Equivalent 
Completed Grade 12 Arts and Science. Shortly after being married, I took various Journalism courses, in college. But didn't complete my diploma, since I became pregnant and didn't finish my schooling, but stayed home instead.
