Nanny in Toronto, Ontario

I'm an
Hello Prospective Families, My name is Shelagh. I have over 20 years experience working in the childcare profession, primarily as a nanny, although i have worked in daycare as well. I have two children of my own. My oldest, Olivia, is ten. She's currently enrolled in grade five at Huron P.S. My youngest is Saoirse who turned four at the end of January. She currently attends preschool full days. She will be starting JK in the fall. During the summer my children attend day camps. Both school and day camps provide aftercare to allow me to have more flexibility with my hours. I live in the Annex but am willing to travel a reasonable distance. I have a driver's licence and my own car if parents wish me to drive their children to school or activities. Alternatively, I am open to taking care of children in my home. I have my child/infant CPR and first aid. I have also completed the Canadian Mothercraft Society Home Based Child Care Program. Prior to having Olivia, I was studying psychology at TMU in the evenings. I've since completed a certificate program in Mental Health and Addictions. I am now working on my Bachelor of Arts in psychology in my off hours. My long term goal is to complete my degree in psychology with an aim to eventually focus specifically on children. I am an excellent swimmer so I'm very comfortable with children around water. I enjoy spending time outdoors with the children in my care whenever possible whether bike riding, hiking or just spending an afternoon at the park. In the winter I enjoy taking children ice skating and tobogganing. I like to keep busy with children by taking part in various programs such as story time at the local library, drop-in centres and playdates. I also recognize the importance of downtime at home while engaged in quiet activities such as reading, doing crafts and playing games. I have always enjoyed a close relationship with the families I work for and am still in touch with many of my former nanny families. I have always loved my little charges as though they were my own. Becoming a mother has only served to strengthen that bond. I feel that motherhood has allowed me more insight into how parents feel towards their children, their desire to protect them and see them thrive, which I think adds to my performance as a caregiver. I have a resume which I would be happy to forward to anyone interested. I also have a police reference check. Throughout my career as a nanny, I have cared for children of all ages from newborn to teenagers. My duties have included- taking children to and from school/play dates/various extracurricular activities dressing and bathing preparing meals organizing fun activities playing/reading books/doing crafts keeping the house tidy light housework children laundry I look forward to hearing from some prospective families. ***In light of the Covid-19 situation I want to assure families that everyone in my family is fully vaccinated against Covid-19 as well as the flu and all other vaccinations.
