Experienced Nanny, with Special Needs Education background, in Vancouver, British Columbia

Nanny in Vancouver, British Columbia

I'm an
I have been a nanny on and off since I can remember. I also have worked for the Vancouver School Board for since 2003, as a Student and School Support Worker, integrating children with disabilities into classrooms. I have worked at day camps, babysitting, nannying. I have a lot of experience working with children with disabilities. This has been my primary focus for the past 10 years of my life. When it comes to child care, I enjoy taking the kids out on adventures, rain or shine. It is nice to get outside daily. I also find kids love public transit, it is an outing in its self! I like to interact with the children and play with them, not just simply watch them. TV is not even an option for me; Id much rather do crafts, play games, read books or go for a walk. I also love to cook and bake, getting kids involved is fun as well )after all, that is how I learned to love it). Taking the sea bus to North Vancouver, discovering different parks, trips to the library, going for walks, taking picnics, and going to the aquarium are just a few examples of a typical day with your kids. I am open to nanny shares, and having multiple kids and families at once. After all I am use to a class of kids! Finally, when it comes to discipline, I believe in being firm but fair. I do not engage in power struggles )Ive taken courses on this)! I am an optimistic person, so I like to put a positive spin on everything. I do not like to constantly say NO, or treat a child like they're bad. Of course, dealing with the issue is needed, )why it was inappropriate, proper meaningful apologies if needed, and chat about respect), but then drop it. I believe giving children respect and not yelling at them, but rather talking with them. I find kids respond much more to this, and they are able to see what appropriate behavior looks like, which in turn they tend to model! I hope this gives you an idea about the type of person I am and that your children will be in a positive, healthy and of course fun environment! If you'd like to know more, Id love to meet your family. Parents being comfortable with me is just as important as the kids liking me! I could go on about the many different things I love about kids and why I enjoy working with them so much. PLEASE DO NOT LET THE NO DRIVING, TURN YOU AWAY FROM CONTACTING ME, IF YOU LIVE IN VANCOUVER, WE CAN GET AROUND BY BUS, SEA BUS OR TRAIN!
