Nanny in Vernon

My name is Shirley-ann and I have an almost 4yo son Mathias. We are from New Zealand tho my son has spent most of his years in Australia We left Australia Jul 28th and are now in beautiful British Columbia, Canada since Sept 8th. We are currently now in our fourth work exchange. We are hoping to stay in Canada 6-12mos We are hoping to find a live in nanny/housekeeper position with a lovely family ideally in the country/rural. We are happy to relocate anywhere in BC..... are available to start from approx mid Oct onwards. A small family or a large family doesn't bother us at all, in fact the more the merrier! I encourage children to be active and spend majority of their time outdoors (if possible), encourage respect, and manners, also 'me' time, even children need this. I do not tolerate bullying whatsoever. Healthy eating is important to us. I am able to help out with cooking/preparing meals, I enjoy this! I can normally make something out of nothing! Also happy to help with looking after the home, whether that be cleaning, laundry, mowing lawns, gardening, general maintenance etc I am able to drive or walk children to school/kindy, walking is no issue at all, my son will walk for miles! If there are dogs, we are happy to walk with us as well, we like to be active. No issues with driving auto/manual (I have my international drivers permit) A little bit about us : My son is very outgoing, and very social, he speaks well for his age and very adaptable to change. He loves meeting new people and trying new things, I also encourage this. He is a water baby! loves the outdoors, hiking, fast cars and big trucks, music and all animals, he also has a gentle, sensitive side :) I was born and raised in a small country town beside the beach. I am a hard worker, no matter what job I am in, I am not afraid of getting dirty , your typical country girl, but am also a neat/clean freak and perfectionist! I love meeting new people and of course love travel, the ocean, being in the water and outdoors, staying active, art, nature/wildlife, hiking, cycling, animals, music and food and new adventure of course! I have a big heart and will help anyone and everyone I possibly can. I am a drama free, laid back kind of person. We are grateful for any opportunity and look forward to hearing from you!

Aloha, I recommend Shirley-ann, and am quite sure you will eventually recommend her as well. Shirley-ann came to my home on Kauai with her son Mathias to help with my home and garden in exchange for room and board. In very short time, they felt like family. Shirley-ann did everything asked of her, and much more. She was always easy to get along with and mixed well with others who stayed here as well as any of my friends who met her. Shirley-ann has an even temperament, adapting well to situations. Anyone who has raised children knows how challenging a 3 year old could be, and Shirley-ann does so well with her son that I believe she could be an excellent nanny. Mathias was taught well, as evident by his manners always saying" please, thank you, sorry! Mathias has quite a vocabulary for a child his age, no doubt due to the fact Shirley-ann spends focused time every day reading early education books with him. Mathias is surprisingly thoughtful for his age; if you hurt your foot on a hike with him, he will ask you several days later how your foot is feeling. If Shirley-ann stays with you expect some good meals, in particular her traditional New Zealand style potato salad. I look forward to the day her and Mathias return! Feel free to call me if you want any further information, Sincerely, Ray F Mac Pigott
