Nanny in Powell River, British Columbia

Hello there :) My name is Leija, pronounced "Lay-ah. " I am a very experienced care-giver and mother who generally takes the gentle parenting approach. I believe in using the most positive language possible, even when "disciplining" a child. I know how to be firm when needed, but in a way that doesn't damage the child. Having patience and a relaxed, happy, balanced demeanour is absolutely essential to raising happy, healthy humans. While children have their own unique personalities, you can't deny that fact that they are also deeply influenced by the kind of energy they're surrounded by. So I can guarantee that any child that spends time with me will be surrounded by a beautiful, positive, calm (yet vibrant) and nurturing energy. A couple years ago I worked as a full-time live out (and live-in at times) nanny in Powell River, BC for a family with two children, age 2 and 6 before they moved up north in BC. I brought my then toddler with me to work every day. I also have years of experience working as a nanny in my early 20's, looking after a newborn, toddler and 5 year old, along with another family with three kids age 3, 6 and 9 year old. I currently live 10 minutes south of Powell River with my family. I have a vehicle so it's easy for me to drive to wherever you are located in the Powell River area. I am open to both part-time and full-time jobs, and since I am only renting a place month to month, it's easy for me to relocate for the right job. I would love to connect with a family who's open to the fact that I am mom of two beautiful girls and would be bringing them to work with me often. I am an excellent multi-tasker and naturally have a lot of energy, so looking after multiple children at the same time has never been an issue for me. My 4 year old daughter Alayna is an outgoing, smart, loving, sweet and joyful girl, who's always singing and making people smile. She adores connecting with people of all ages. I am also blessed with a very sweet 1 year old daughter, who's the most relaxed and content little girl I have ever known. Alayna is very gentle and loving with Naia, which is beautiful to see. I used to work full time coordinating healing retreats, teaching people how to make amazing vegan/raw vegan food, and helping people to heal holistically via natural health and nutrition consults. I have put all of this on hold so I can have more time to spend with my kids. I love spending time outdoors with kids, being active, doing crafts, reading books, singing, dancing, playing, being silly, laughing, and in general, making sure I provide a fun, creative, positive, educational, loving and supportive environment. I know how to make healthy plant-based food that's also tasty, so if you want your kids to eat healthier, I am your gal. If you think I might be a great fit for your family or if you have any questions for me, don't hesitate to send over a message. Much love, Leija
