Meaghann M

Hi there!


Nanny in Toronto

Hi there! My name is Meaghann, but please call me Meg(s)! Yes , that\'s how my name is really spelled, to this day I don\'t have a mug or a keychain with my name on it from Niagara Falls. I grew up in rural Ontario, the eldest of three girls, and have spent the past five years studying philosophy at UofT. My primary focus in philosophy is ethics and legal philosophy. I am looking for a little bit of adventure, and to start paying back my student loans doing something I love, but that is not necessarily academically challenging for the next few years. I have always been told that I am \"great\" with children, but it\'s really the kids that bring the best out in me . I think my ability to relate so well to children comes from a firmly compassionate and patient foundation, bolstered by a great sense of humour . I love to laugh, I love playing dress-up, I still build forts and am skilled at negotiating and conflict resolution. I am an excellent cook, and I love to bake. I will encourage healthy eating and participation in food preparation. I come from a family of teachers, and will impart my love of reading on your children. I have lots of resources to help with early childhood education, and can speak some French (although my reading and writing is far more proficient) I believe that a love of books is the key to success in any area of life, even going so far as to run an \"international cousin\'s book club\" for my little cousins in Barbados at the behest of my aunts and uncles who were concerned about their literacy skills. I am extremely computer literate, but I might be a bit old-school with respect to my views on technology and learning. I have worked as a swim-instructor for children just getting comfortable in the water, and firmly believe that swim lessons are an integral part of childhood. I appreciate that safety is paramount around the water, but also in the home, and while I no longer teach I keep my first aid updated always. I have a cool head in emergencies, but am also naturally vigilant in preventing accidents. This might sound a little too good to be true, but my motivation for treating children withy respect and love always comes from my experience at home. I was so lucky to have a stay at home Mum, who really gave me and my sisters an amazing and enriched childhood. When my parents separated, I took on some of the responsibility for continuing to provide my sisters with the same awesome experience (not so hard for a \"bossy\" big sister to do) when my mum returned to work. As your children\'s nanny, I would be dedicated to providing them with the kind of support I received, because I appreciate that value of having someone at home, even if it can\'t be Mum and Dad. Life-long experience as the big sister of three girls. Throughout highschool I was relied on as a sitter for neighbours and teachers. Received bronze cross and assistant water safety instructors certification from The Royal Life Saving Society, taught parent tot swim class, group lessons for children ages 3-10yoa. Hired by the Uxbridge Youth Centre as Program Coordinator, supervised drop-in hours, ensured proper use of computers and game systems, conflict resolution in addition to my primary responsibility of providing high-quality and innovative programming for pre-teens and teenagers. Perennial volunteer with Precious Minds, a local organization providing programs and support for children with special needs and learning difficulties.
