Nanny in Victoria, British Columbia

Hello! My name is Jessika and I am in search of a part time nanny position (two full days a week). I reside in the Royal Oak area and would love to find a position that is close to home! I have been working in the Early Childhood Education field for five years and am nearing the end of the ECE program at Pacific Rim Institute (only have my practicums to complete). Being an educator has become an incredible highlight of my life as I am passionate about providing care and education for children in their early years. I strongly believe in using nature and art as the third teacher so I am searching for a family that has similar values. In my recent employment, I have been an educator in a nature based program where the majority of the day's curriculum is spent outdoors (rain, shine, snow etc). In a world full of technology and screens, I strongly believe children growing up in today's society are lacking a connection to the natural world that surrounds them. I would love to find a family that would be comfortable with much of the day being spent outdoors whether it be spending time at a park, going for a walk or playing bare foot in the mud! My teaching philosophy is inspired by a Reggio Emilia approach which values play based learning, meaning the children guide their own learning through play. I believe that my role as an educator is to provide children with endless opportunities of learning to enhance all areas of development. I believe strongly in using natural materials to provoke thinking and exploration. I have a full understanding and knowledge of the various stages of development in a child's early years and am able to provide activities and opportunities to facilitate cognitive, social, emotional, creative and physical skill building. I have a ton of experience with all age ranges including infants, toddlers, preschoolers and school aged children! A little about me: ● I am 27 years old and was born on Vancouver Island ● I am an artist of many talents (photography, painting, embroidery, pyrography, drawing & more) ● I love the outdoors and have a strong connection to nature and the environment ● I cannot wait for the day that I become a mother as it is truly the soul part of my life that I look the most forward to - I am honestly a natural mother at heart ● I am passionate about growing my own food and love to garden! ● I am professional, reliable, non-judgemental and open to all lifestyles, cultures and religions ● I am patient, kind, warm, nurturing and compassionate ● My family and I are very close and love to spend as much time with them as I can! ● In 2011, I was fortunate enough to spend time in Uganda staying in small remote villages with locals where I found the true meaning of love, community, hard work and value of the necessities in life. I came home an entirely different person and am deeply grateful for the life that I have! As a nanny, I understand there are different responsibilities and tasks compared to working in a licensed facility. In my past work experience I have been a nanny and have a full understanding of the expectations required of me. I am searching for a family that I can have a long term bond with and with that being said, I would love to work with children under 3 as that leaves lots of time to spend together before they are off to kindergarten! I am comfortable with light cleaning and would of course make sure you had a clean house to come home to. As well, I do not mind providing the child/children with meals and snacks (no meal preparation for entire family). In regards to creative activities such as art, I would love to possibly arrange an agreement or spending allowance on supplies and materials so that I am able to provide intriguing creative opportunities. As well, I am requiring a contract to be agreed upon and signed by myself as well as you to ensure standard workplace requirements and regulations are met. I am seeking a positive professional relationship with a family as well as constant communication to ensure both parties are always feeling happy and comfortable! Based on many years of experience and a solid educational background, I know that I bring a lot to the table as a caretaker/educator and am looking to be compensated appropriately. My wage depends on the amount of children in my care and I am ideally searching for a family with a maximum of 3 children under the age of four. I am licensed by the British Columbia Early Childhood Educators Registry and also possess my First Aid Certificate. Along with that, I have a criminal record check through the Ministry of Justice as well as a doctor's note stating that I am in good health to be working with children! I look forward to finding a family who's home I can be welcomed warmly into and am open to any more questions you may have about me! Sincerely, Jessika
