Nanny in Montreal

I am originally from Vancouver BC but I have moved out to Montreal to attend Concordia University, I am currently studying history and women\'s studies but I would like to go into either education or child care. I have been working at YMCA Camp Elphinstone for the past two summers and attending since I was seven years old. At camp I have been a counselor to children aged 4-15 years old, in numbers from having one camper to having fourteen. I have very good skills when it comes to taking care of children, especially around conflict resolution, ages and stages (measuring the appropriateness of an activity for the age of a child), bed time, and many different games I can teach and play with kids. I love working with children and especially in long term situations where I can really build a bond with the kids. I also was a part time nanny/babysitter when I was in high school for a family with a 13 month old son and a three year old daughter. My responsibilities were to come over every other weekday, cook breakfast and get the kids ready for the day, and then usually take them to the park or other fun activities (it was during the summer). I also would come over twice a week in the evening to watch the kids and put them to bed when the parents had things to do. I would also do household chores like laundry and cleaning for the parents. I have been very well trained at camp on childcare, including getting certain certifications. I have my CPR-C, standard first aid and Bronze Cross. I am very interested in music, art, drama, photography, outdoor education and many different sports. I play piano, guitar, ukulele, and I sing. I would love to become a part of your home and your children\'s life and I hope that I you will find me very useful and suitable for your home.
