We followed the Y.M.C.A.s Play to Learn curriculum, which uses play as a learning medium and prepares children for primary school education by providing the foundations for language, math, science, sensory, music, art, and dramatic play. We often divided the children into smaller group activities where we could spend more one on one time with them. I facilitated the development of potty training and hygiene practices in many of the new toddlers coming into the preschool room. We made it our priority to get the little ones out on field trips as often as possible to local museums, gardens, parks, and playgrounds. During a period of low-staffing, I also helped by filling in as a toddler teacher until a new staff member was hired. The little ones at Purdys Wharf kept me constantly on my feet and taught me just as much as I taught them. Substitute teacher at St. Josephs Daycare, Scotia Square, Halifax, Nova Scotia May 2015 Jully 2015 I worked full time while covering teachers vacation leaves. This position involved being able to multitask and maintain a constant awareness of the entire room, and always being immediately ready to react. Along with assuring the constant safety of the children it was important to keep them engaged and happy. We guided singing and story circles, took the children on playground outings, and provided activities that facilitated the development of fine and gross motor skills - allowing for the children to explore the world through play. Patient Attendant for AboutCare, Halifax, Nova Scotia January 2015 May 2015 I worked as a patient attendant for a woman with severe Dementia. She was known to wander towards the exit on a regular basis and because of the threat to her safety, needed to be under constant supervision. My job involved keeping her busy and regularly redirecting her. I kept her focused on other activities such as building puzzles, coloring, playing games, and reading. Having a good sense of humor and a patient attitude was key while working in this position.

Program Leader at The Boys and Girls Club, Fairview Halifax, Nova Scotia November 2012 May 2013 I taught a cooking and nutrition program for one of Canadas largest and best known childrens charities.
