I have been caring for children for the past 10 years. I was with one family for 8 years and looked after three kids from birth till 8 years. In my current job I look after two girls, 3 and 6.5 years. I love taking children to the park, library and local book readings and music sing-alongs. My native language is French and I like to teach kids to speak in French. I love being around kids and have a wonderful time reading to them, doing puzzles and playing with them. In summer and spring I like spending time outside with the kids. I have a lot of fun with the kids while teaching them discipline. My main goal is to teach the kids under my care how to be self-sufficient, caring and respectful individuals.
I don’t drive; however, I know my way around the public buses and metro and my lack of “wheels” is never as issue. I always make a point of getting the kids out to meet other people, be at the park, library, or with other nannies and their children. I take children on lots of activities like to parks, on nature walks, museums, aquarium, etc.
In addition to traditional nanny duties, I will help with full house cleaning, organizing rooms/closets/cabinets, running errands, dishes, laundry, making bag lunches for kids, grocery shopping, running other errands, picking up kids, preparing light meals.
