Nanny in Vancouver

I am a loving, patient and creative female nanny who would love to care for your children; thank-you for taking some time to read my letter and look over my resume. As a graduate of the Elementary teacher certification program at UBC I am looking for a position working with children in a developmental capacity. I am very interested in helping others discover what they love and get inspired in fun and engaging ways. The program I was involved in at UBC for my Bachelor of Education was called teaching from the HeART. It involved infusing the curriculum with arts based learning to keep students actively engaged in their learning, including art, music, dance and the fine arts. This has been valuable for me working as a nanny because I learned lots of creative activities not only to keep kids busy and having fun but also to improve their motor skills, problem solving skills, creativity and inspiration. I have previously completed a Bachelor of Arts as well, specializing in Sociology. Although the bulk of my experience with children and young adults has taken place in a classroom environment I have quite extensive experience now as a nanny. After having worked as an on-call and full-time nanny now for the past three years I have found that I really enjoy working with kids one-on-one in the home environment. I love working with children and young adults because it can be such rewarding experience.
