Nanny in Toronto, Ontario

Hello Families,

My name is Shelagh. I have over 20 years experience working in the childcare profession. Most of my experience is as a nanny although I have worked/volunteered in a few daycare centres. I have a five and a half year old daughter named Olivia. She'll be going into grade one in the fall. With her in school all day and a great after school program available I'm able to be flexible in the hours I work. I live in the Annex but am willing to commute within a reasonable distance.

I have my child/infant CPR and first aid. I have also completed the Canadian Mothercraft Society Home Based Child Care Program. Prior to having my daughter, I was studying psychology at Ryerson in the evenings. I've since completed a certificate program in Mental Health and Addictions which included some courses in child psychology. My long term goal is to complete my degree in psychology with an aim to eventually focus specifically on children.

I am an excellent swimmer so I'm very comfortable with children around water and enjoy many other activities such as bike riding, hiking or just spending an afternoon at the park. In the winter I enjoy taking children ice skating and tobogganing. I like to keep busy with my kids by taking part in various programs such as story time at the local library, drop-in centres and playdates. I also recognize the importance of downtime at home while engaged in quiet activities such as reading, doing crafts and playing games.

I have always enjoyed a close relationship with the families I work for and am still in touch with many of my former nanny families. I have always loved my little charges as though they were my own. Becoming a mother has only served to strengthen that bond. I feel that motherhood has allowed me more insight into how parents feel towards their children, their desire to protect them and see them thrive, which I think adds to my performance as a caregiver.

I have a resume which I would be happy to forward to anyone interested. I also have a police reference check.

Throughout my career as a nanny, I have cared for children of all ages from newborn to teenagers.
My duties have included-
taking children to and from school/play dates/various extracurricular activities
dressing and bathing
preparing meals
organizing fun activities
playing/reading books/doing crafts
keeping the house tidy
light housework
children laundry

I look forward to hearing from some prospective families.
