Dear Family,


Nanny in Calgary

Dear Family, Children are great imitators, so give them something great to imitate! Hello my name is Justine Martin, I live with Indica my 7-year-old boxer, my little rescue angel. I am a very active individual; I love the outdoors, crafts, hiking, dancing, swimming, imaginary play and every little thing that a child can possibly think of. One would say that the greatest gift a parent can give a child is unconditional love. As a child wanders and strays, finding their bearings, they need a sense of absolute love from a parent. Theres nothing wrong with tough love, as long as the love is unconditional. I have had the amazing opportunity to work with many different children in my life time, and give them the most amazing gift of all, LOVE. I have always loved children and find nothing more rewarding than caring for them. I've been caring and nurturing children since I was 11 years of age starting with babysitting for many different families. I later moved on to the love of my life, coaching gymnastics for 4 years. I had the opportunity to start working with private families around the age of 18 and have been doing so since. Children are where my heart lies and they are who put a smile on my face and keep me laughing each and every day. I hope to have a few of my own one day! I've had the chance to work with all ages, from premature to 14 years of age, at the same time getting experience working with children with Autism, that are Paraplegic, and have Kliefstraw. I have a huge heart with children with learning disabilities and day to day challenges. When I look for a family, I look for a friend; I see if their beliefs and values are the compatible with mine and ensure we can work together cohesively. I like to live and work in a clean environment. Some people may think I'm OCD. I'm not scared to clean up a mess, do the dishes, laundry, organize when needed, make a routine for the children, and get my hands dirty when needed. Besides cleaning I love to cook all sorts of new, interesting, fun and colorful meals. Ones that are appealing to the children, but healthy at the same time. On another note driving is not an issue, I have had my license for over 10 years with a clean driving record as well as a defensive driving course. I have also taken a domestic violence course at Sheriff King House to help understand children and their take on certain situations that arise in families, and learn how to deal with their behavior, feelings, and emotions. Along with this I have my NCCP level 1 and 2 technical training and NCCP level 1 tramp, and my current CPR and criminal record check. What is a home without children? I believe that each and every child brings something special to this world and make us the person we are today. In conclusion I feel I could be a great value to your family because I have excellent communication and organizational skills and I pride myself on creating a positive, happy environment in which children can thrive, be themselves, while learning appropriate behavior, manners and life skills. I'm crafty, kind, loving, nurturing, energetic, stern when needed, and love new adventures. I'm fantastic because I am me and there is no one out there that is like me.
