Nanny in Vancouver, British Columbia

Hello Parents, I am an experienced nanny (10 years experience with primarily infants and toddlers) in the Vancouver area. My style is all about negotiation and equality between care giver and child. My favourite age to start is infancy as there is nothing as remarkable as seeing little people develop and acquire new skills and no joy as great as a baby's laughter. I believe in logical consequences, patience, play and positive reinforcement. I am empathetic, playful and attentive. In addition I have taken sign language courses and encouraged language acquisition with the infants I have worked with. I have my first level of culinary arts degree from VCC and am very comfortable with meal prep, and light housework. I have an associates degree in psychology and taken childhood development courses. I began nannying as teen when I lived with families over the summer and formed lifelong friendships with the children and parents. After high school I worked as a chef for a few years; however I simply didn't have the same love for the restaurant industry as I did for childcare and development. At which point I began part time nannying around my classes for a local doctor and her one year old. When he went to preschool and i finished my associates degree I went backpacking around Europe, where I visited 32 cities and 18 countries, ask me about it. When I returned I worked for a family visiting from LA to film a show for almost a year before they returned, and I have babysat countless families now. I am now finishing up my BA in Psychology and so I cannot work full time, but i would love to build some new relationships with some growing families. All the best! Arjuna Thira

Recommendations

Megan Horowitz

I can’t possibly write a recommendation for Arjuna that would properly capture how amazing she is. She was out nanny for almost a year (while we were in Vancouver filming a TV show) and in that time she formed a deep bond with our kiddo, taught her how to cook, took her on long nature walks where they saw beavers and blue herons, and instilled in her a love of The Beatles. Arjuna is wonderful and we deeply miss her. Get in contact with her if you want YOUR kid to have the same magical time that mine did.

I recommend Arjuna T as a nanny

Natalie Martin

Arjuna is a wonderfully passionate and dedicated childcare provider. She is truly joyful to be around; a positive force of energy and enthusiasm that my daughter loved. Arjuna was our nanny when my girl was 1.5 years old - not only was she a great caregiver and kept my girl safe and sound, she also took Zuzu to a different playground or splash park everyday. Zuzu was always exhausted (in the best way) after her adventures with Arjuna. Arjuna also organized my daughters’ clothes, was fast and consistent with laundry and light household duties and was a fantastic communicator - always keeping me in the loop about things, sending photos/videos of my girl and making me feel truly supported as a Mother.
