Nanny in Dartmouth

Hi there! I am an extremely nurturing, caring and bubbly individual who has a passion for working with children! I am seeking a stable, permanent full-time live out position. Ive spent the last three years working as a full-time counselor with four wonderful intellectually disabled women in their home - and part-time at the daycare I previously worked at full-time whenever I can help out. Some of my duties as a counselor include providing mental health support, administering medications and personal care (hygiene, toiletry, showers), prompting or assisting with daily living activities, assisting the ladies within the community and with recreational activities, performing housekeeping duties and cooking meals for up to 6 people. My coworkers and I have experienced a sudden unfortunate schedule change and a loss of 40 hours per month each, which is why I am considering leaving in order to become a Nanny. I know I am my happiest when working with children. A few years ago, before working as a counselor, I was first a daycare teacher with a placement agency (Scotia Personnel), and then received a full time position at Kids and Company in Dartmouth - Portland Hills. This is where I currently work part-time whenever I have a day off or am free to help out. I don't go for the money - I go to see the kids, even if I am super tired from working all week! :) While working at the daycare I will be in a classroom with up to 10 newborns, 18 toddlers or 24 preschoolers. My duties include changing diapers/assisting children in the bathroom, supervising or participating in the children's playtime, preparing meals while ensuring individual health restrictions are met, organizing educational and creative activities, taking the children outside to the playground, aiding children during nap time, etc. I am also the aunt of an 12 week old baby girl who is the new light of my life! I spend almost every spare minute I have through the week with my niece. I often care for her and babysit. I have a vehicle (2014 Volkswagen Jetta) I have no problem using if needed - I currently use it at work to drive clients to doctors appointments, activities, on vacations, etc. Lastly, in my current job and in my regular daily life I'm very big on getting out of the house and either engaging in activities or enjoying nature! If weather doesn't permit, I usually gravitate towards crafts. I love thinking of new and fun things to do around the community for my clients, for my daycare kids, for children I babysit, and for myself. Please let me know if you'd have any questions or concerns.
