Nanny in Toronto

My name is Shannon. I am a recent graduate of Queen\'s University with a BScH. I am the oldest sister of three, and have been babysitting since I was about 14 years old. At this point I have almost 10 years experience with children. In the future I am looking into going back to school to become a teacher, so child care is definitely one of my passions. In the last 2-3 years I have taken on several short term (3 days to 1 month) nanny jobs, some involving overnights, others involving morning and evening care. I am comfortable and capable of caring for children from approximately 18 months to pre-teens/teenagers. I am very environmentally minded, and as such love being outdoors biking, hiking, and exploring. I love to cook and bake, and it is one of my favourite things to teach kids. My other interests/activities include making things and experimenting, gardening, travelling, and I am the Assistant Director of a youth group in my neighbourhood. I am highly attentive to detail, compassionate, and reliable. I make it my goal to be a role model and coach for the children, in order to encourage good manners, habits and morals. I work with parents to learn what actions they value in their home. Furthermore, I have been trained as a lifeguard, and am working towards getting my swim instructors certifications. I am willing to take responsibility for light housework (kitchen tasks, etc), as long as it will not take away from my duties with the children. I am looking for a fun, loving family to become part of, anywhere between part-time to full-time. I am willing to work occasional nights, as long as this has been pre-negotiated. I would prefer to work weekdays, but am willing to negotiate weekend hours too Occasional Evening Babysitting: 10 years - 1-3 children at a time, ages range from 2-13 - Duties include minding children while parents go out for the evening.
