  My schedule is flexible. Occasionally I have evening or weekend commitments, but I know my schedule well in advance and am open to working then. I should give 2 weeks notice at my current position, that is why I have selected the start date I have.

  About Me
I grew up in rural central Alberta and after graduating from high school, I moved to Germany, where I lived for 6 years. I initially went there to au-pair (live-in nanny), which I did for 12 months. I also nannied for one year previous to that time, in order to gain childcare experience, and later was hired on by a German family with two young boys who I was very fond of to take care of them 3X weekly for the last two years I lived over there, so I have 4 years of nannying experience with a variety of families. My duties ranged from reading to the children and helping with homework to taking them to school and extracurricular activities, to planning and participating in activities with them (swimming, baking, sledding, playing in the park), to cooking and housework. I returned to Canada in 2019, and moved to Edmonton one year ago to be with my boyfriend, who is currently apprenticing to become a welder. We are planning on getting married and having our own family in a few years.

Things I enjoy doing are cooking and baking, reading, gardening and going for walks, runs and swimming. I am also an animal lover.

Since August 2020 I have been working full time in office admin at an oilfield engineering company. The reason I am now leaving that position is because my boyfriend (who I live with) has been working very long hours and will continue to do so in the future. We would like to cut my hours back to counterbalance his very long hours, and my current employer is not open to making that accommodation. The reason I am looking to connect with a family on this portal and get back into childcare (or potentially into a housekeeping/companion position) is because I genuinely enjoy this type of work and interaction and feel that I am able to add more value to the world than I am working in the office. I am hoping to find a family that I just really get along well with and vice versa, and that I can work with longer term, ideally. I am looking forward to meeting and getting to know you :).

  Work Experience & Education Background
8 years experience, 2 references
I have experience with both live-in and live-out childcare. The children I have cared for have been as young as 10 weeks and as old as 14 years. As I mentioned in the previous section, I have experience in reading to the kids, helping them with homework and teaching them English, taking them to and from school and extracurricular activities, staying home with them when they were sick, planning activities to do with them, and also cooking and doing some housework. I am comfortable around animals and have worked in households where petcare, as well as childcare, was required. 
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, twins, triplets  
High School, Graduated High School or Equivalent, College, Bachelor's Degree, CPR Training, First Aid Training 
Highest level: B. A. English and TEFL certification (I taught English in Germany for 6 years in a variety of settings). I also completed the first year of the Red Deer College PN program, but Covid happened just as the year was winding up and did not complete the second year (of the 2 year program) because I did not want to work in the hospital through the pandemic and the constantly-shifting rules and requirements.
