Nanny in Toronto, Ontario

I am looking for caregiver work for the summer and beyond. Especially gifted with infants /toddlers. I'm in the Dufferin Grove area, and have a preschool playspace / farming plot for summer outdoor education if interested! I have many years of ECE, storytelling, yoga and self-reliance tools, and teach a high quality program which includes literature & social-emotional play, physical education, essential life skills (garden, cooking) community social skills, all in the structure and constant repetition of a daily environment they thrive in. Daily song-circles, and circle time for creating a social-emotional vocabulary. Most importantly, I believe in role-modeling, and empathy above all. I am highly skilled in helping families transition infants into daycare (9 months old - 18 months) and can work from your home environment, or bring them to my garden plot; pickup/dropoff, pet care welcome *My on-going freelance work as a story editor, documentary researcher, fact-checker and proofreader informs all of my childhood literacy and critical skills work, with older children. My Practical skills: Childcare professional ECE - Reggio Emilia / Montessori play-based self-directed education. Yoga teacher - science of social emotional, body awareness, neurobiology, Horticulture Therapy - farming and nutrition (sensory garden, natural design, green and whole foods), Storyteller/writer for children, print media background. I see the difference that teaching yoga skills make in social-emotional health; helping kids begin to engage in lifestyle practices that foster healthy body awareness, and clear communication skills. I am passionate about helping kids thrive, and find their authentic voice, and I know how to engage with children of all ages to make them feel heard and valued. Non-judgmental self-awareness. Being inside isn't my thing, and luckily, children tend to agree. I have multiple professional parents in Toronto who can attest to my skills with their children. I value their privacy, so I don't post their contact information publicly, but, of course, will share privately. Police check, drivers abstract, infant CPR, first aid training, skilled swimmer, cyclist. My spells of volunteering have included teaching and engaging in communities in Mexico, (2015/6/7), Costa Rica, (2013/14), and a meditation community in Australia (2017) as well as working on a Mexican (Oaxaca) farm cultivating vanilla flowers, cacao, pineapples, mangoes, tamarind, bananas, coconuts. I look forward to hearing from you, Kath
