Nanny in Waterloo

Dear Parents, Thank you so much for considering me as possible child care for your children. I am excited to be looking for a new position and meeting a new family. I have previously nannied for a family with two children and I enjoyed my time with them immensely. I am a 33 year old. I work as an Occasional Teacher for the Waterloo District School Board and I am a registered member with Ontario College of Teachers. I am a responsible, capable, and reliable person who loves children. I am an enthusiastic, energetic, and self-motivated child care provider who strives to ensure quality programming that will spark the imagination and curiosity of the children who I am caring for. I am looking for a part-time/ Summer nanny position where I can help the child(s) develop their social, and emotional well-being while they learn respect themselves and others by building their life skills. I believe that children need routines, boundaries and fun! I believe in reading lots of books, getting dirty, baking, painting, making sand castles, dancing to music and splashing in puddles after a rainstorm. I believe in giving children reasonable choices and allowing them to express their own opinions. I want the children in my care to grow into wonderful individuals and I want to do all I can to help in that process. I have worked as a Nanny for 3 years and during this time I have been responsible for two children, aged five and seven. I am passionate about children and helping them develop into little people while having fun. If you should require any further information please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to speaking with you.
