Nanny in Calgary

Looking for a nanny who is experienced and educated in caring for children with special needs? Does your child need not only a caregiver but also an educator trained to work with various therapies as well? Does your child have complicated medical needs or conditions and you have a hard time finding that special person who can meet all of their needs on a daily basis? OR Maybe Do you have a baby who needs tender loving care and loves to snuggle (me too)? Needing someone who can help your baby grow through play and meet those developmental milestones with joy and comfort? Want to know your baby is getting the best loving care while you are away at work? Yes? Then let me introduce myself. My name is Candace and I am a PATIENT, LOVING, CARING and CREATIVE nanny with 14 years experience who will care for your children as though they are my own. I am currently seeking a full-time live-out position beginning mid-July 2017. I am currently with a family who I have been with for the past 4 years and the kids, now 4, 6 and 7, are grown and heading to school in the fall. I have grown out of my position with them and now I hope to find a new family to join in caring for their children. I am passionate about working with children with special needs as well as babies. They often share many characteristics and I would love the opportunity to explore either at this time. I miss both areas of care. I love working with children who have severe or complex needs because even though their daily care might be a challenge they are amazing little people just waiting for someone to take the time to learn to communicate with them and help them explore the world in a way they are able to. They may need aides like wheelchairs or walkers to get around, they may need assistive devices to communicate or they may need medication or tube feeding but they deserve to learn and explore just like everyone else in this world, it just might be in a different way. I am experienced and trained in the various therapies like OT, PT, Speech and Sensory Exploration which I miss having the opportunity to engage with frequently these past few years. I am also experienced with a variety of medical conditions including but definitely not limited to Seizures/Epilepsy, Cerebral Palsy, G-Tube Feeding, Diabetes, Medication Administration and much more. When it comes to medical emergencies I am calm, cool and collected while taking a hands on approach to ensure only the best outcome from the situation at hand. I have over 14 years professional experience working with children in a variety of capacities including a nanny with 3 children, in-home care / respite, head teacher in Early Childhood classrooms (12 months to 6 years), community support aide, caregiver with infants and much more. I have 5 years of post-secondary education in both Early Childhood Care and Education as well as Disability Studies. I have a passion for caring for and working with children. I love the challenge of working with children with complex special needs and high medical needs. As for infants I love to snuggle and provide a loving, caring environment with lots of hands on experience (Im not afraid to get dirty). I love rocking and soothing them and for many babies in my care in the past I have been known for my ability to calm or soothe them from crying when nothing else seems to work. I love to explore the community with the children in my care. I love to go to places like the zoo, the library, lots of parks, swimming pools and explore cultural experiences. Basically anywhere that I can provide an educational experience while providing the highest level of care. I do drive and have a vehicle but would prefer for the family to provide access to a vehicle for transportation of the children (negotiable). I love to engage children through singing and music as well as providing developmentally appropriate activities that are geared to their level. I am not just a regular nanny looking to babysit. I am a teacher looking to improve the lives of your children and family through exceptional care. Please contact me for more information or an interview.
