Nanny in Toronto

Hello Parents, My name is Alicia, and I am a recent graduate of the MA in drama therapy at Concordia University. I am looking for a one year-long commitment, beginning in September 2016. I am a very warm, compassionate, responsible, and creative individual with extensive experience in teaching, care giving, and leading children in a wide variety of settings. I am committed to providing engaging and educational care that includes a healthy awareness of the environment, nutrition, physical development, compassion and respect toward others. My studies in Creative Arts Therapies have further developed my understanding of how to foster the unique gifts that all children (and adults) possess. This insight, combined with my wealth of experience with children in a variety of settings and roles has provided me with the skills to be an outstanding nanny. Experience I started working with children when I was about 15 years old, developing curricula and teaching dance to kids from 3 to 14 years of age. In the year between high school and university I worked at an indoor playground and party center, where I was a party hostess for small and large groups of children. During my second year at university I so missed the presence of children in my life that I began volunteering in a kindergarten classroom. In the year following university, I had the amazing experience of traveling to South Korea for a year and teaching English as a second language to classes aged from kindergarten to grade 4. I returned to South Korea for a year spanning 2011/2012, teaching the same age group. In this position I was responsible for teaching the curriculum in a fun and stimulating way, while implementing positive reinforcement/discipline systems for classroom management. I have had five full-time, and one part-time nanny positions to date. When I returned from Korea I got my first nanny job with a lively family with four active boys. I was with this family for one year, and the boys were 4, 8, and 10 years old when I started with them. During this time I also provided some overnight/weekend care for another family in the same area (whose children were the same age). My next nanny position was with a great family with one little guy, whom I was with from the age of 13-18 months. Following this family I was a nanny for an amazing family with three girls. I was also with this family for a year, and the girls were 12 months, 3 and 5 years old when I started. My second-last position was with a family with three children, ages 4, 18 months and newborn; I was with this family for nine months through their transition from a family of two children to a family of three children. In 2013/2014 I had the joy of caring for one little one from age 4 months to 16 months in a vegan, gluten-free household. I have just accepted a summer job to nanny for one seven year old girl, which should be fun! In all of my nanny jobs I have taken responsibility for: providing a stimulating, safe, and creative environment for the children with daily outings and engagement with the arts preparing children's meals and snacks, and helping with dinner preparation laundry, errands, and light housekeeping arranging playdates pick-ups and drop-offs at school and various programs I look forward to hearing from you:) Alicia
