Yrs Experience

Hi there! My name is Dora and I'm currently a Natural Science major at the University of Calgary. I'm 19 years old and originally from Nigeria. I moved to Canada to further my studies. I come from a family of 4 girls, and I'm the second child. When it comes to hobbies, I enjoy cooking, listening to music, traveling, taking care of children, shopping, singing, reading, and hanging out with friends whenever I have the chance. The most important attribute for me is to have a genuine love for kids. I truly enjoy being around children as it provides a wonderful opportunity to learn about them and myself. I consider myself a patient and understanding person, and my friends often say I have a nurturing nature. I'm always open to learning and personal growth. Helping others is something I'm passionate about, and I would describe myself as philanthropic. I chose childcare as a side hustle because it's something I'm really good at and comfortable with. It allows me to earn money while honing my skills, all while being in the presence of amazing kids. If given the chance, I would love to bring my enthusiasm and care to the role of a nanny. .

Hey there! When it comes to childcare, I have a ton of experience. Growing up in a big family, I was always surrounded by kids, and I loved taking care of them. Whether it was my cousins, family friends, or even my own younger siblings, I was always the go-to person when it came to looking after the little ones. Currently, I babysit my auntie's kids while they're at work or busy. They range in age from newborns to 7-year-olds. It's been such a joy to watch them grow and learn. I also have family friends who trust me to take care of their kids regularly. I've been babysitting for a family since March 2023, and it's been an incredibly rewarding experience. Being able to provide a safe and nurturing environment for these lovely kids has been a true privilege. I'm known for my patience and love for children, and I believe that my experience with my own family and babysitting has prepared me well for this role. I'm excited to bring my passion for childcare to the position of a nanny and create wonderful memories with the little ones I'll be caring for.

My references
Recommended by Bunmi A.
This reference is my aunty, I worked for her when I moved to Canada. I wasn’t being paid because her kids are my cousins and it really wasn’t necessary. When I moved here, my aunty was pregnant and she was usually at work or resting so I was solely in charge of her 2 daughters, aged 7 and 4 respectively. I was in charge of their meals, homework, play time, naps, and night time. I was also in charge of taking them to the park that was a 5 minute walk from the house. I still babysit her kids when I go to her house. At the moment, there’s been a new addition to the family so I also take care of the baby boy. This was her response when I asked for a reference, “ Dora is very dedicated and hard-working. She is an awesome nanny and carries out her duties well.“

She is my aunty and I was in charge of taking care of her two kids, aged 5 and 2 respectively. I usually took care of kids when I wasn’t in school and when she was busy with work. I was in charge of their bath, meals, play time and dinner. “Dora is patient and kind. She is the right mix of playful and disciplined and is great with children.” This was her response when I asked for reference.
