Melanie L

Fun and Well Rounded Sitter


Nanny in Whistler

Hello! My name is Mel, and I am currently a Media student in my 4th year at the University of Western Ontario. I got hooked on the mountains last summer, so upon completion of my degree in May, I'll be spending the next few years in Whistler, BC! I started babysitting at a young age, and later in my teens I discovered my passion for leadership and camp counselling. I really love working with children; they have such a fun energy and life to them that is infectious to be around. I completed both a Leader in Training and Counsellor in Training course, and have since clocked over five years of work in summer camps. In these five years I can confidently say that I have encountered all types of children- and I still love every minute of working with them! No matter how "difficult" a child may be, I believe every kid just wants a chance to learn, have fun, and be accepted. Every day I am honoured to be doing work that helps create positive and experiences in these early years. My approach to child care is simple-- less passive entertainment (television, computers etc) and more engagement! I love learning about a childs interests and passions, leading exciting games with them, or even just reading a story or doing crafts. I spent many years in theatre, so I'm quite outgoing, and I especially love swimming and all things outdoors! Whatever your childs need, I would be more than happy to bring out the best in them- and have fun doing it too! A bit about my experience: Interspersed years of baby sitting as a teenager. (Jobs here and there, mostly school age children) - prepared meals - ran activities - experience changing diapers - enforced house rules (bedtimes, hygiene etc.) Worked as an assistant to a mother with four children from ages 2 - 11 (also cared for them on my own) - helped with behaviour management - supervised public outings - kept them entertained Have worked in summer camps for 5 years. First as a counsellor and then as a Program Director. - worked with children of all ages (4 - 15) - behaviour management - health and safety awareness - modifying activities based on age group - lunch/nutrition supervision - accompanied swim time - sensitivity training - extensive activity and game knowledge
