Nanny in Vancouver

I am a highly skilled, dynamic Aussie, re-locating to Vancouver Dec 2017-January 2018. I'm currently in Toronto but flexible on dates. *Landlord requested apartment back for repairs with short notice *So I'm excited to be looking for full-time ECE work, in Vancouver. I am highly experienced and gifted in infant/toddler/preschool care/development, and have also enjoyed many years teaching children of all ages. *PLEASE NOTE: Whilst I do generally prefer to live-out, I am looking for a quiet home within walking distance to work, so I am very open to live-in positions. My Practical skills: Childcare professional ECE (Montessori play-based self-directed education), yoga teacher (science of social emotional, body awareness, neurobiology, physiology, anatomy) horticulture farming and nutrition (sensory garden design, green and whole foods), storytelling/writer for children - reading circles, song-circles/music education, animals, nature - your child will be exposed to this and more. I believe a healthy child is a well-nourished one, in all areas. Physical, social, mental. I create a fun, comfortable environment and can run a home efficiently and proactively. I am a meditator, and love to hike, walk. Since 2011, I've been teaching yoga to kids in schools, pre-schools, homes, and see the difference it makes in social-emotional health for all children and helps engage them in lifestyle practices that foster healthy body awareness, and clear communication skills. All of this though, only works because I am passionate about helping kids thrive, and find their authentic voice, and I believe I know how to engage with children of all ages to make them feel heard and valued. Non-judgmental self-awareness. I have a great following of 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. Fun fact: I spent last winter in Mexico working on a farm cultivating vanilla flowers, cacao, pineapples, mangoes, tamarind, bananas, coconuts, corn.... I have police check, drivers abstract, infant CPR, first aid training, skilled swimmer, and adore all animals. (except spiders and mice) Education: Journalism by training - My background as a writer and storyteller makes children love libraries and literature as much as I do. :) Early experience: I owned a community daycare for 10 years, looked after multiple children aged 5mths - 15 years old, while also working freelance in children's/reality television. I'm a world-traveller, open and deeply curious about other cultures, and I teach children as such. Also, I'm willing and able to travel at your convenience. Lately I've had spells volunteering, teaching and engaging in communities in Australia, (2017) Mexico, (2015/6/7), Costa Rica, (2013/14). Thanks for reading! Look forward to hearing from you, Kath
