Nanny in Hamilton

Hello! My name is Kerri, and I am an RECE (Registered Early Childhood Educator) and Nanny. Recently, I have also been trained as an NCS (Newborn Care Specialist). While I adore all children, and have had plenty experience with children of ALL ages (birth to young teens), my favourite ages are newborn to junior preschool! I am a part time Nanny to two amazing families throughout my week, and a few families occasionally in the evenings or on the weekends to fill up my week. I am very happy in my current daytime families, and am not looking to leave them any time soon. As an RECE, I enjoyed teaching toddlers and preschoolers at a wonderful private school for a few years before focusing on my strengths being a Nanny. I adore my job, and treat all my little ones as if they were my own. When you love what you do, it is never truly "work". I have my own car, am up to date and CPR certified (recertification done May 2016, and completed an infant specific CPR workshop in January 2017), I have my Food Handlers Certificate, as well as many other qualifications - we can discuss them if you would like to hear more. My most current police check is from March 2017. I have had exposure to other languages (French, Arabic, ASL), but do not speak them - mostly key words spoken by toddlers to help with learning English. As a Nanny and an RECE, my favourite age is around 1 to 3, as stated above, because that is the most crazy, but also the most fun! I enjoy taking outings outside, exploring, getting dirty, teaching social skills and basic age appropriate academics, as well as have fun! I am beginning to read up on a lot of RIE principles and am really enjoying it - basically it is about respectful parenting and allowing your children space to explore. I am Montessori trained as well, and enjoy teaching autonomy and independence in toddlers and preschoolers. Seeing the little "light bulb" moments, and "I did it!" moments make my heart happy. There are pros and cons to each type of curriculum, and I have found in my experience, that most children function best in a blended curriculum. What I am looking for are more families to build up my NCS portfolio! Being a natural night owl, I am at my best overnight. As an NCS, I would be at your house overnight to support you and your new baby/babies through the first few weeks and months of baby's life. Typically it is a short term contract until they are either sleeping through or waking only once through the night. Together, we can customize a plan that works best for you and your little one(s). Do you want to breastfeed or cosleep? Do you want help getting them on a schedule? Laundry/dishes and quiet chores can be added in to help give you piece of mind - depending on layout of the house of course! Moms are ready to tackle the daytime and other siblings when they are freshly rested and at their best too. Everyone wins! How much is a solid chunk of sleep worth to you to be at your best? :) Am I right? Days, pay, duties etc can be negotiated on a case by case basis. I can be reached by email or by cell phone at any time. Looking forward to hearing from you! ** Update: I currently have only limited evening and weekend availability, as well as a few overnight NCS shifts available upon request.** Thank you, and have a great day. Kerri

I have been blessed to have Kerri in mine and my children's lives. My Children absolutely adore Kerri, when picking them up from school the kids teachers know she's there by the squeals of "MY KERRI!!!!!!!" I have had friends ask where they could get their own Kerri. I would love to be able to pay Kerri to take care of my kids full time.

Kerri was the primary ECE for my son from ages 18 months to 36 months. The soft skills which Kerri possesses - caring, consideration, dedication, appreciation, approachability, communication and sense of fun - are vital to being a successful caregiver. It was evident that Kerri had a genuine bond with the children in her care, and my son ADORED her, calling her "My Kerri." As a parent, I appreciated that Kerri was always very approachable with excellent communication, sharing the humourous and anecdotal stories of my son, not just the standard mealtime/outdoor time report. It was evident that Kerri truly enjoys children and appreciates every stage of their developing personalities. She finds humour even while dealing with their more difficult and challenging behaviours. I am thankful that my son had Kerri as one of his childcare providers.
