Nanny in Hamilton, Ontario

Hello! My name is Kerri, and I am an RECE (Registered Early Childhood Educator), Nanny, and a Newborn Care Specialist (NCS). Recently, I have also been trained as a CPST (Child Passenger Safety Technician, aka Car Seat Nerd). I adore all children, and have had plenty experience with children of ALL ages (birth to young teens). 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. 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, 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! 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! Thank you, and have a great day. Kerri
