Nanny plus: procuring the right environment and activities for children to develop

Nanny in Vancouver

I enjoy working with children and have worked with children ranging from ages 6 years to teens for about 15 years. In Toronto, I ran a Home Daycare for almost three years but then I returned to my home country of Costa Rica where I worked as a teacher for 13 years. I returned to Canada and settled in Vancouver a bit over two years ago and was working as a teacher assistant for Avenir School, a small, nonprofit school in Vancouver featuring custom tailored programs to meet the various needs of individual learners. Due to funding challenges Avenir School unfortunately closed last December. Currently I am working ten hours a week with a toddler with ASD and Sensory Processing Disorder developing and implementing an outdoors experiential learning program that supports and promotes his physical, cognitive, emotional and social development. This program takes place Saturdays and Sundays from 8:30 am to noon. My life as an educator has been tremendously gratifying and I definitively want to continue supporting kids in their growth. Besides my love for working with children and my experience, other attributes that recommend me as a nanny are the following: * have a nurturing spirit supporting and encouraging children and fostering their development * punctual and trustworthy * resourceful, proactive, creative * have great developmentally appropriate activity ideas for keeping children engaged and entertained * have a sound judgement and I am able to deal with emergencies * careful, hygienic, safety conscious I have great references related to childcare and am can provide clear criminal record check after the interview. I have current CPR & First Aid certification .
