Experienced, reliable, energetic Nanny seeks the right family


Nanny in Halifax

Reliable, experienced, energetic nanny seeking the right family. I choose to work with children because with them, there is never a dull moment! It brings me great joy to be a facilitator of creativity and curiosity, and to create a safe environment in which they can play, learn and grow. I've spent the past six months on contract working as a full time preschool teacher for the Y.M.C.A, at Purdys Warf where I was responsible for the daily care of as many as eight children at a time. I'e worked as a substitute for Saint Josephs daycare as well as Lillypads daycare. I've also worked for one of Canada's biggest and best known after school programs ( The Boys and Girls Club of Canada) , teaching cooking lessons and healthy lifestyle habits. I have studied psychology (with much focus on child and youth development) and I am now seeking more experience working as a Nanny. I have shining references and a lot of compassion to share. I enjoy creating art, gardening, yoga, camping, swimming, being in nature, reading and writing. I would love to share these interests and skills with your little ones! I am a patient, flexible, responsible, fun, warm and loving, and I'm looking for just the right family to Nanny for! At the Y.M.C.A it was my responsibility to assure that the children in our care were engaged and comfortable in their environment. Many days we would take the group on outings to libraries, gardens, farms, and local museums based on what they were showing interest in. Our play to learn curriculum was based around giving the children room to express themselves freely and discover their environment through various stations that encompassed art, drama, math, science, senses, language and music. It was important that I was able to connect with each child and have them feel safe and comfortable with me as their teacher. I am well versed in working with children with disabilities, and those who are late developers. It has been such a joy to connect with the little people of Purdys Warf Childcare. I spent all last summer taking care of two amazing boys (ages 7 and 11) in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, the oldest of which had Asperger's syndrome. We spent our days going swimming, reading at the library, making comic books, playing games in the yard, and generally making every event in to an adventure. I loved taking care of them because they always had something new to teach me, and they never ceased to amaze me with their cleverness! Last year I also worked as a program leader for The Boys and Girls Club of Canada, which is Canada's largest N.G.O. children's charity. I taught cooking/nutrition lessons as well as art lessons. Myself, and one other staff member were responsible for up to twelve children/youth at once. The program is designed so that children and youth from lower income families were able to have affordable access to extracurricular activities. I've also worked at a busy local Halifax daycare called LillyPads. Here I worked with an E.C.E. to care for children between the ages of the toddler group. We would spend our days having story circles, learning the alphabet, counting, painting, making arts and crafts, singing, having snack and lunch, going for neighborhood walks, playing on the playground, having dance parties, and potty training. This job demanded a lot of responsibility and the ability to be aware of the entire room at once. After working at LillyPads, I feel very comfortable and confident in taking care of large groups of young children.
