Nanny in Nanaimo

I will play with children, I will to dress up and dance and glow with an inner joy. I will laugh lots and loudly. I will layer tissue paper and glue to build up crowns with sparkling gems and errant feathers. I will plant seeds and watch flowers, carrots, new green life spring up out of the black dirt. I will to share the wonder of the world and the excitement of being alive. I will witness a childs joy at discovering something thats all new. I appreciate the children and let them know what they are doing that I admire. I want to throw away words like "behaviors" or "problem" child. I aim to model a healthy way to express difficult emotions like anger or frustration. Art is a great way to express anger, but you can always simply say " I feel frustrated." I want to relate to them as human beings and talk to them as equals. While also teaching them the importance of boundaries. I want to touch them, because I believe touch is very nurturing and human, but I also want to teach them that they can say no to this touch. And pick and choose when they want it and I will respect that and say "thank you for taking care of yourself!" Or something along those lines maybe just "good on you," ha ha and be a little less formal lol. My background education is a bachelor's of arts in psychology and creative writing. I spent 4 years while I was in university, working in group homes/doing respite care with children. After that I have done various jobs, from providing recreation for seniors to running a Farmer's market. I also worked at a daycare for a stint. Currently I am traveling around Vancouver island, meeting bats and bears and writing poetry. I'm looking for a household where I can fully be myself. That means I show up as I am, you show up as you are, the kids show up as themselves and we all show up together. For me that means being self expressive, and being in touch with my emotions through tears, laughter, singing, toning, chanting. I believe the more we model self care and authenticity to children, the more they will be fully thriving adults. So that means we model things like taking pauses or time for ourselves to be alone. I am looking for more than a household, I am looking to discover connections, create community, but also remain autonomous and have space and time to do my own thing, which is writing. Highlights -Fantastic foodie who can cook and bake (nutritiously to boot! And also GF and vegan dishes) -Animal lover!

Can pass on yoga, Tai Chi, laughter yoga and various body awareness/intelligence. - Full of craft ideas! Love all forms of art.
