Hi, my name is Jill and I am looking to take care of a child/children.
I am the mother of an 8 year old boy and a 5 year old girl who both attend Saint-Remi here in Kanata; and 16 month old boy who would love to be your child\'s playmate :) I am flexible in terms of what I have to offer and will try to fit your family\'s needs.
I can look after you child at my home or yours (or a combination of
both). I am also willing to do errands (such as some groceries) as
I live off of Second Line Road in Kanata.
I have years of experience with children including formal daycare,
nannying, playgroups, and summer camps and of course my own children.
I have worked with children under 6 months (the youngest was just 3
weeks old when I started taking care of her full-time) and right up to
and past school-aged. I have completed the High Five child development
certification course with the City of Ottawa as well as WHIMIS,
Special Needs Training and Epi-Pen Training. I also have a criminal
reference check and Standard First Aid and CPR certificate. In
addition, I have also completed numerous child development, child
literature and child language courses while completing my education at
I have extensive and exceptional experiences, which have provided me
with an excellent opportunity to develop a skill for working and
communicating well with children of all ages. I believe in teaching
and acting in a child-honouring manner and modeling appropriate
behaviour, teaching children to respect authority figures, themselves,
their peers, and their environments. Through this personal philosophy,
I have adapted a skill that allows me to effectively balance a
respectful relationship with children while maintaining friendship in
a fun-filled environment.
As mentioned, I am flexible and willing to work long hours if needed -
my last contract required care for their child for 50 hours a week. If
you are a professional that is finding it hard to meet a scheduled
pick-up/end time, I can be accommodating. Also, I would be willing to
babysit overnight, evenings, weekends and for business trips/meetings,
allowing yourself and your child to feel safe and secure during your
absence. I would also be willing to accommodate shift work.
My past employers have appreciated the fact that I have my own
vehicle. I have taken children on numerous outings such as playgroups,
the Early Years Center, museums, and the petting zoo. I have also
taken children to educational programs such as Kindermusik, and to
scheduled doctor appointments. Choosing to stay at home with my
children while taking care of others has been an amazing social
experience for the children. I have effectively balanced
socialization, education and exposure outside the home with playgroups
and outings; while offering the valuable asset of a low-ratio,
one-on-one approach with the children.
I have learned through having my own children and interacting with
other parents, that nothing surpasses the feeling of content when your
child is being taken care of in a safe, educational, and loving
environment. Rest assured that your child would be treated no
differently than my own and that they would thrive in their learning
environment together. All of the children that I have taken care of
have become a part of our own family. Their lives as well as the lives
of my own children, have been significantly enriched because of these
relationships and bonds that have been created.
If you feel that we could be a match for your family then please feel
free to contact me and I will forward my resume.
Look forward to hearing from you :)

Jill V is a terrific nanny. Our children liked her immediately and felt comfortable with her from the start. She truly has a child's best interest. She is very kind and loving which was very important to us. We wanted someone who was loving towards our children, not just someone who watched our kids while we were at work. She also made sure our children participated in different outings/play groups on a weekly basis. We highly recommend her.
