  About Me
** Currently seeking a position with newborns up to 12 monthsI **

Dear Mum and Dad, (and other primary caregivers. )

Welcome to my profile.
I am currently seeking a position in a family that either has a newborn/infant under the age of 12 months, or is expecting and needing some extra support before the birth.

Anticipating, or adjusting to life with a baby around can be overwhelming to say the least. Greatly impacted by the work and research on leading attachment experts such as Gorden Neufeld, I have strongly believe that developing a nurturing, safe, secure, and consistent environment for both the parent and infant is key to creating strong, resilient, stable children and families. We don't need research to indicate happy parents are rested and grounded parents.. As a support person/caregiver, I hope to assist your family by creating a calm, peaceful environment simply by offering an "extra pair of hands". Swaddling and feeding, bouncing a babe to sleep, or washing soiled diapers and clothing are all only a few of the everyday occurrences that I will do, which allows you, the parents, to get some sleep, go for that walk, get out of the house, tend to other family needs, etc.

I have been caring for all ages of children all my life, officially starting as a mother's helper when I was 12, working every afternoon for her with her newborn so she could have some peace and relax, or get housework done, or go out of the home. I have worked as a nanny. as a lifeguard/swimming instructor with children of all ages, worked as a daycare assistant, led various kids clubs, and am currently the Sunday School teacher at St Timothy's Anglican in North Vancouver. I am also a certified esthetician and makeup artist:)
I am not above getting down on my knees to scrub the floor, and am a keen advocate of storybook time at lunchtime (or anytime. ). I believe in health and nutrition, and an active lifestyle that does not include plunking children in front of the tv or iPad. I have a clean driving record, and am confident in driving your children in my Nissan Versa.

My hobbies include spending time with my 7 nieces and nephews (the best thing in the world. ) and organizing Aunty and cousin play dates. I am frequently baking bread and cookies or cooking large batches of meals to stock my family's freezers, as well as getting out in the local trails with my pooch.

Currently seeking a part time position with newborns up to 12 months.

Please contact me with any questions or for more information. I look forward to hearing from you.
