Ontario, OR Nannies

Anne B. - Seeking Work in Ontario

14.28 / hour

First and foremost I am the fourth oldest of ten children. Coming from such a large family I was expected to take on the responsibility of caring for children at a younger age than most. My experiences growing up in a large family are what gave me the love of children that I have now. I have been a nanny for four different families with young children. In three of the four positions I only had the responsibility of caring for one child, in all three of those positions I started caring for the children when they were anywhere from 3 months old to 6 months old. The fourth and most recent position was that of a family of three children ranging in age from 2 to 7. My first nanny experience ended because the family relocated due to a job. The second ended because the child was ready to start Pre-school and the third ended because they were expecting their second child and had decided to have a stay at home parent. I have also worked for the Boys and Girls Club where I ran the Education Center for kids ranging from Kindergarten to 8th grade.
