Hey! I’m a Canadian living in New Zealand and hoping to get to know some more families in my neighbourhood. I live with a mom and her two young kids and do occasional childcare for her. In Canada I worked in daycares for school age and infants/toddlers for 5 years as well as a private nanny. I love spending time outside with kids, taking them on walks or adventures to the park and a lot of play based learning.
I have worked as a 1 to 1 support for children with a variety of special needs in licensed daycare and after school care. As well as teach skiing to kids and adults with different physical and cognitive abilities.
I have worked in childcare casually and professionally for over 10 years. I’ve worked in formal daycares for school age children as well as infants and toddlers. I’m comfortable with children of all ages 0-12 and especially love toddlers! It is so rewarding to be able to see the world through a toddler just discovering new things. One of my favourite activities with kids is getting outside and exploring our environment! In Canada I have an assistant early childhood education license and up to date first aid.
