Nanny in Toronto

Hello! I am a very loving mother of a beautiful eight-year-old boy. I love children, all ages. I started babysitting when I was twelve and grew up in a relatively large family (I have three siblings) in neighborhood filled with children, so getting work was no problem at all. I have taken care of children (from newborn to pre-teen) on and off throughout the years as a professional nanny (even when I had a full-time profession in the hospitality industry and later when I became a mother). I am currently a part-time nanny for two boys ages 2 & 4 but soon my help won't be needed any longer due to career changes of the parents. I am interested in finding part-time childcare work starting in August/September. I do hope to hear from you! Sincerely, Melissa 2014-current Currently part time nanny for two boys, ages 2 & 4. 2012-2013 Toronto Melissa looked after our son when he first started kindergarten and took care of him after school while we were at work. We would highly recommend Melissa as a child caretaker as she did a wonderful job ensuring he was picked up on time and engaging him in cultural activities and crafts every day. The best part is he also made some wonderful friends who he still talks about and wants to see and so did we. We felt very safe and confident with our family in her hands. With highest regards, Mark & Kerrie Jones 2012-2013 Toronto Melissa has been taking care of our eight-year-old daughter for the last year. She has a confident playful interaction with Asha. Gardening, water games, baking, arts and crafts are some of the activities that Melissa has put together while taking care of her. She really enjoys spending time with Melissa and her son. And when it is time to go home Asha has asked, Can I stay longer? Please? They have become good friends. Sincerely, Mrs. Benu Critoph 2005 - 2007 Toronto, Ontario Melissa took care of our premature son since he was an infant. She comes with our highest recommendation. We found her to be reliable, patient, and amazing with our child. She was always punctual and we felt at ease with leaving him with her. We were very fortunate to have had Melissa as our caregiver. Monica and Kevin Yemm 2005-2006 Toronto Melissa Armstrong helped with childcare for my 4 year old daughter in 2005-6 .As a result, we have continued a friendship to this day.She is a conscientious, sensible, caring, creative, playful and thoughtful individual.A good mother, and a good person. With Respect, DARA JAUKOVIC 1996-1997... Montecito, California Melissa cared for my two girls when I was at work, nearly every night. She is trustworthy and I can't recommend her enough. We love her. Five stars all the way. Dorothy Stolzlechner 1994-1996... Oceanside, California Melissa Armstrong was a caretaker for my daughter, Neva, from 1994-1996.... Melissa would arrive each day before I left for work and would get my daughter ready for school, including fixing her breakfast, getting her dressed and styling her hair. Neva still remembers the joy of having the nicest hair in 3rd and 4th grades. Melissa became more than a "nanny" to my daughter. Since I was a single father raising a young girl, Melissa provided a female presence in Neva's life that was so beneficial to her growth and positive self-identity. They would talk, do art projects together, and shared a strong bond. Melissa always had a smile on her face and such a calming, relaxed disposition. Her love for children was evident. I always felt assured that Melissa would take care of my daughter in any situation and I knew I could trust her to make decisions to keep my daughter safe and protected. I have employed several caretakers for my daughter over the years and no one compares to Melissa. My daughter and I continue to maintain a friendship with her even after all these years, and to this day my daughter still remembers and applies the talents and lessons Melissa bestowed. I can assure you that it is in your best interest to employ Melissa Armstrong for any position you have available. She is honest, trustworthy, and punctual, and is a caring and kind individual" - Scott St.Morris "Melissa was a wonderful babysitter for me and any child is lucky to have her in their life. " - Neva 1990-1992... Costa Mesa, California Melissa was the best caregiver for my boys that I could possibly ask for. She was loving; joyful and very creative in the way she played with them and taught them at the same time. She even taught them sign language. Even though it has been quite a few years since she has been with them, they still remember her with genuine fondness and so do I. -Linda Freibott
