Nanny in Halifax

Hello! I am currently a part time time student at Dalhousie University looking for part time employment for fall 2015-Spring 2016 possibly continuing through the summer. I am in the last year of my undergrad and I am majoring in English Literature, hoping to continue my education in social work in the fall of 2016. I love kids and it would be great to gain more experience with child care before I start work with children in the Social sector. I had a great experience nannying for two lovely girls last summer and hope to find another family to help out. I am fun loving, very caring and love expanding young minds while having fun in a safe environment. Please contact me if you have any questions about my abilities or availability, and I will respond as soon as possible! Last summer I had the joy of nannying for a family with 2 beautiful daughters; ages 3 and 18 months. I spent time with them during the weekdays, playing and learning with them. I was resposible for their safetly throughout the day, organizing outings to the parks, putting the youngest down for naps, feeding them etc. I currently work with a program called Funatorium Explorium which has an in school gym program, as well as mobile equipment for events. I have been helping and playing with kids of all ages with equipment like rock climbing walls, magnetic walls, speed stacks, Zorbs (inflatable balls in an inflatable stadium), Gyroscopes and more. The children range from 4-14, duties have included clearly explaining rules and regulations to follow for safety, guiding children through obstacles and setting up games and competitions. i have been doing this for over a year in more than 10 different locations. During the in school program, focus on helping the children work through obstacles, and help them discover their boundaries and limits in a safe environment was stressed. With the same organization i worked in a rabbi's house for the celebration of Rosh Hashanah. Working with children aged 3-12 playing themed games, entertaining them outside and setting up leggo building with them. For two days, i kept the children occupied while the adults went to temple, there was over 20 kids with 3 caregivers and myself to watch them. I helped a family with their 2 children; ages 2 and 5 for a three weeks during the summer of 2009. Duties included waking up, making meals during the day and taking the kids for outings around their neighbourhood; parks, museums, public library etc. I have 3 nieces; ages 13 years, 2 years and 6 months, and 2 nephews; aged 14 and 6 months who i've had the pleasure of watching over the years. Duties have included, spending over nights while parents were out, waking up, bedtimes/bath times, preparation of meals and daily activities and outings as well as changing and feeding of the youngest. I spent a couple days as a stand in sitter with a young toddler of 2 years old, taking him around in his stroller, feeding him, changing him, bathing, putting to bed etc.
