  About Me
 
I am a recent graduate of Queen's University and spent my summers and holidays while at school working at Queen's Daycare Centre as well as working as a nanny for two different families. I have cared for children aged 4months to 10 years old and am very confident and comfortable in my abilities. I am a a new resident in Victoria having moved here recently from Kingston, ON.

I love the outdoors, a fact which drew me to moving out west, and am an avid curler and ultimate frisbee player. I recently bought a bike and have been enjoying exploring the city and trails with it.

I am an incredibly caring and empathetic person and appreciate the trust it takes to leave your little ones with a new person, particularly in vulnerable transition periods. I feel confident that I can provide a safe environment and make this transition as comfortable as possible for everyone.

  Work Experience & Education Background
 
6 years experience, 3 references
I have spent 5 summers working at Queen's Daycare Centre - a centre with two sites and providing care to around 70 children. I also worked as a nanny to a family with a 8month old and 3yr old for a part of a summer, continuing care where my schedule allowed during the school year. They brought me along on small day trips as well as to Toronto for a few days. I also worked as a nanny for a family with a 4month old while his mom transitioned back to working full time as a professor. I similarly maintained a positive relationship and provided care where my schedule allowed following those 4. 5 months. I also worked as an occasional babysitter for numerous families, with children of diverse ages and needs.
I also worked part-time running a family drop in program at the Agnes Etherington Art Centre, providing a safe space in a studio for caregivers to leave their children in. We provided many art activities, providing assistance where needed. Typically myself and one other would have around 15-20 children attend our program.
