Nanny in Ottawa, Ontario

Kate Preston-Thomas 1 min I have been a caregiver/nanny since 1985. A long time yes, but luckily it is the kind of job that keeps one young in many ways. I have also worked as a PA, which is a program assistant ,in daycare centres and nursery schools, and as a supply cook, replacing daycare centre chefs..... a nutshel,l I call myself the day shift for my families and we balance a unique home daycare model in an open minded way, with me being the facilitator for fun and care.Our day to day can vary somewhat as well. We like to go on outings to the Experimental Farm(which is very, very close by), museums,parks, playgroups(The GlebeCC dropin, Cambridge Public school, and Old Ottawa South). In the months where the weather is pleasant,we spend a lot of time outside. In fact the kids have already napped outside in the tent quite a few times this year already. For the past 5 years, 2 and 3 year old's in my care have also gone to nursery school. Lately we have been taking in the sights and sound of Dundonald Park in Centretown. I believe it is the most dynamic park in the city! We play,play, play. Sing songs,listen to music, dance, read stories, draw, count, build, manipulate play dough, see what we can make out of vegetables(ArtAttack style),eat good foods (beans are a staple and we love them),we climb, and go to parks, picnic, and fresh air nap on days when there are only two or three kids to push in the stroller. And we visit with friends. The quirk in our routine is that we rotate through our daycare families' homes. That's right! So we play and party at everyone's homes and for the families that embrace it, it works really, really well. At the end of the day we hope to leave the house looking as good or better than we found it. My daycare families are great. The kids who are going off to school this year, I will miss so much. So see if you want to take the plunge with us. We have spcae for three new friends. One of whom could be under 2 years. We would really like a family with two children if possible. Contact me asap.
