Nanny in Kingston

Hi! I\'m Julie. I\'m 26 years old and about to move back to Canada after spending the last 10 years in the US. I completed a one-year Cultural Studies program at McGill University before attaining my Bachelor\'s of Fine Arts from The Boston Conservatory in Musical Theater. After college, I moved to New York City to perform. I\'ve had some wonderful experiences on the stage but ultimately found myself seeking something more fulfilling to fill my days. I was blessed to be hired as a music teacher at a small private preschool and two years later I am still there now working as a full-time Preschool Teacher. I\'ve loved my experience there so much it\'s led me to Queen\'s University where I will receive my Bachelor\'s of Education in 2015 to hopefully teach in elementary school. Growing up doing Musical Theater has given me countless skills I find directly applicable to my work in child education and childcare. I\'ve learned that song is incredible motivator and unifier for children, the importance of letting loose and being silly with the kids and the value of using a bit of drama to become more relatable to the kids. I incorporate as much artistic and creative activity in my classroom as I can; and I do the same when babysitting. I value imagination and play as a caregiver but also expect respect, follow-through with parents\' expectations and rules and set clear boundaries. I genuinely love spending time with children and look forward to each unique day of work being a caregiver offers me. I grew up the middle child of three very close siblings and feel my life has been a 26 year long training session in conflict resolution, communication and family value. My family is extremely important to me and I feel being invited into someone\'s family is an incredible honor and priviledge not to be taken lightly. I put my passion and love into my work and feel proud and fulfilled by the relationships I\'ve attained working with so many beautiful families throughout the years. Thank you for taking the time to look over this profile and please don\'t hesitate to contact me with any questions. I am looking to move to Kingston in late May when my preschoolers are done with school but dates are a bit flexible. Thank you again! I hope to hear from you soon!
