The perfect balance of being fun and firm.


Nanny in Vancouver

I have been providing infant care, before school and after school care for different families around the lower mainland for over 8 years. My current committed hours during school months are Mon and Fri 5:30-8:30am for one family. M-W 2pm-4pm with a family in Vancouver which I've been serving for the past three years. I am married and have been a homemaker to raised a daughter of my own for many years. I would describe myself as someone you can count on and along with that, I'm also attentive, peaceful and conscientious. I'm especially helpful in establishing a good sleeping pattern for newborn which can be a challenge. I speak encouragingly to kids and am able to be firm on things that are important. I strive to be engaging with sensitivity to children's emotional needs as well as their physical needs. One thing I've noticed about kids is that they all need and want clear boundaries. It's like a fence you create around them to play in and it makes them feeling safe and protected. I enjoy coming down to the child's level and play like a kid cause I still remember how it felt being little and what every child wanted really is to be heard and understood. I like the one on one type of focus care and enjoy the reward of seeing good results at the end of the day. I believe that kids learn best when they feel relaxed and cared for. I have my police check report and attended the 5 hour course on Childcare first aid / CPR with LINK2LIFE. I speak fluent English and Cantonese. I have 8 yrs of previous paid nanny experience with kids of all ages plus high functioning Autism kids around Vancouver, Tsawwassen and Pt. Roberts. My experience as a mother has prepared me to deal with different types of situations that can come up. The families that I am working for would say that they can trust me to be proactive and reliable on a daily basis. I can be silly and animated at times and does not act my age (when playing with kids). I could be Playing hide n seek, pretend games or ball tossing with your kids. Making up spontaneous lyrics, singing, dancing, making kids laugh and story reading are all enjoyable to me. Kids really do learn best when they're relaxed and cared for.
