Lindsey Mclellan

Adventurous, holistic nanny ready to help

Nanny in Kelowna

Aloha, my name is Lindsey! I am 23, and have been a full time and part time nanny for several beautiful families over the past seven years, in between my travels. I returned home in April from five months backpacking Asia and Hawaii, with a heart full of island love and arms wide open to a new beginning with a new family! It is my desire to connect with a family who would like some full time help over a longer term. About Me: I am deeply passionate about working and playing with children; their presence brings light and energy to my days, and inspiration to my heart. I spend my days in the Okanagan exploring river canyons, barefoot hiking, climbing trees, hoop dancing, savouring wild fruit, creating delicious vegan treats, swimming in lakes...and often bringing my kid friends along with me. I live for nature adventures, to explore every nook and cranny of raw land, away from the bustle of busy bodies. As a nanny, I have quite a bit of experience staying with children over an extended period (as long as two weeks) while the parents are out of town. As a pet and house sitter, I have also enjoyed my experiences of running the house and caring for a variety of pets for several weeks at a time. I am open to this again in the future, as well as travelling with the family for any purpose or length of time. Over the past seven years I have volunteered in the Waldorf school and preschool in Kelowna, a preschool in Glenmore, and Village at Mill Creek Senior Center. I am communicative, loving, playful, reliable, and possess overwhelming desire to nurture. I am a free spirit, and put an emphasis on nurturing curiosity, awe, wonder, freedom, and joy in the children in my care. I like to balance the yang energy of playful, outward expansion and exploration into the world, with restful, creative yin energy - coming in to make art, read stories, snuggle, and feed our bodies with wholesome, organic, earth-grown meals. What I Seek: *A flexible full time position, with a holistic minded family in the Okanagan. I am based in Glenmore and have my own vehicle - however, if the family's home is located over half an hour away from my home, I would like to look at a live-in or gas assistance option as a possibility. *Being a free spirit in love with movement, flexibility is important to me! I appreciate being able to work together with a family to support and fulfill each other's time needs, cultivating the ability to flow with changes, as well as communicate in advance dates that are unavailable. *Once the family has grown comfortable and confident with me, I would deeply appreciate having the ability to take the kids out on nature walks and little adventures around town...to nourish their minds with hands on interaction with the natural world, their bodies with sunlight, fresh air, and movement, and their souls with curiosity, wonder, and freedom. Kangaroo farm, parks, family events, streams, beach days, pool days at my house, sledding (winter), and bike rides, are just a few of the things I've done with my kids in the past few years. *We can discuss wage based on what arrangement we agree works best, but I am looking for $15/hr minimum I am ready and happy to connect you with the families I have nannied for over the last few years, to help you get sense of who I am through their eyes. I'm sure the kids would have a lot to tell you too! =) Mahalo for your time
