Nanny in Vancouver, British Columbia

Hi! I’m a nanny working with a wonderful family, in the Riley park area, and we are looking for someone to join us in September for a share! A bit about the family and what we are looking for: - family has a 3.5 year old girl who attends preschool every afternoon -family is willing to host, and has an older well tempered golden retriever - looking for a child that walks and either doesn’t nap or only afternoon naps. - looking for a family that is comfortable with daily adventures, transit use, and lots and lots of fun! Please see below for my profile and CV Dear Family, Thank you for your interest. My name is Carla Newitt and I have been a full time nanny for the last 9 years. I chose to start nannying when I was offered the opportunity to au pair in France. Through that experience I discovered my passion and talent for childcare. I am soon going to be finishing working with a lovely family of one young child whom I grew to love very much. The only reason I am no longer going to be working with them is that the child has been accepted into daycare and it's a better financial fit for his family. I understand that choosing a nanny is a big decision for any family and I would like to share some of what I can offer your family. I have taken care of children between the ages of new born and 11 years old, and am comfortable with all stages of development. I have experience with children with disabilities, as well as tending to children when they are sick. I am very caring and strive to create a loving bond with the children. My childcare philosophy is that children develop best when they are actively involved in their world. As such, I do my best to cater the days' activities to their interests, as well as create a sense of community for them. I really enjoy taking children on outings and play dates, doing arts and crafts, and having quiet time together reading. I can be super fun and silly, having dance parties and playing make believe, but I can also be serious and strict when rules need to enforced. In my experience children thrive when they know what to expect and what is expected of them, so I will work with the family to establish a set of boundaries and a weekly schedule As a nanny I believe that my objective is to make your home life easier. To achieve that I make the care, happiness and safety of your children my number one priority. When there is time I like to focus on making sure the house is tidied, the children's laundry is attended to, and preparing meals. I am a really good cook and focus my food on being nutritious, family friendly and varied. I often try to get the children involved in cooking or baking (of course age dependant). I would be happy to work with you to figure out what tasks and chores I could do that would be of most benefit. A bit about me personally. I grew up in Maple Ridge and I got to explore the lower mainland with my three younger siblings and parents. Currently I live in Vancouver with my husband and I love everything that the area has to offer. We are very active and enjoy walking and running around the city all year round and hiking the mountains through the summer. When we can find the time we love to travel; our most recent trip was to Cuba. I have a strong grasp on the French language and a basic understanding of Spanish. I like to participate in activities that help me grow, both physically and intellectually, and also just have down time with my friends. I look forward to meeting with you and getting to know the family more. Sincerely, Carla Newitt Carla Newitt Vancouver, BC 604-561-... ...@hotmail.com Experience: Private nanny: • Dangerfield family.
