  About Me
Hello my name is Sinead and I absolutely adore children. I come from a BIG family of teachers and musicians and have been surrounded by children my entire life. Being the oldest of 10 grandchildren, I have always taken pride in being a responsible role model and have enthusiastically taken care of all children as if they were my own family. My passion for care giving was further realized in Africa, where I volunteered teaching English to children in Tanzania, and through my involvement with the Montessori school in Brooklin, Ontario. I am also a summer camp counselor each year and have First Aid and CPR training (re-certified in 2019). I also have experience with special needs children, but specialize in very young children (less than 2 years old).

I have come to realize that kids are my passion and through my studies of International Development and Globalization at the University of Ottawa, I hope to make my dreams of working with children in developing countries a reality one day. In the meantime, I'd more than love to work and play with your little ones and give them the love and care they deserve.

  Work Experience & Education Background
10 years experience, 5 references
Last summer I spent trekking across America’s national parks, teaching kids wilderness skills and how to connect to who we truly are, from the earth. As a summer camp counsellor, lifeguard and chef to these kids I come trained in First Aid and CPR (re-certified in 2017), along with a passion for healthy food and outdoor adventures.

In New Zealand (2015-2017), I was an in-school musician and storyteller, and after-school campaigner to get kids outside and active in the natural beauty that is Central Otago. In Glenorchy, Wanaka, and Queenstown I spent one-on-one time with kids ages 3-12 years old, while providing ukulele and swimming lessons once a week to the local community and leading hikes in the surrounding mountains and streams.

I also write children’s books and provide creative workshops for kids and parents looking to make story and music magic.

In Australia (2014), I was a nanny for a family of doctors, nourishing their three little ones, (2, 4, and 6 years of age) with outdoor education, healthy meal preparation (with lots of hands-on sous-chefs), and frolics by the seaside.

For the duration of my academic studies at The University of Ottawa (2011-2015), I consistently cared for the children of six different families, providing overnight and evening care, with occasional coordination of daytime playgroups and exploration sessions in arts, music and nature. Throughout my studies of International Development and Globalization at the University of Ottawa, I have come to realize that the way to make the world a better place is through education and empowerment.

For over 10 years, I have consistently cared for children in both home and educational environments such as the Montessori school in Brooklin, Ontario, where I promoted the advanced curriculum to children between the ages of 6-18 months.

I am also a returning volunteer leadership camp counsellor for the Co-operative Young Leaders Program designed to enhance life skills and cooperative values in youth ages 14-18.

Currently a part-time virtual student of expressive therapies, I have a flexible schulde and hope to continue providing loving, enriching care with a family that fits.
