My name is Anita. I am married and a mother of two grown children. I am a happy, kind, considerate, compassionate, patient, reliable, responsible, and a trustworthy person. I can offer many years childcare and homemaker experiences to provide comforting care for children and/or elderly people. I have recently obtained (July 2022) my First Aid & CPR Level C/AED Re-certification.
I was born, raised, and educated in Canada. I had worked in the banking and accounting industries for many years before becoming a full-time stay-at-home parent for two children with special needs. For the past ten years, I have run a small eBay Store, and also selling wholesale items on Kijiji. From May 2019 to September 2019, I worked as a part-time grounds-keeper along with babysitting my employer's child on an occasional basis. Additionally, I was also babysitting for another family with two young children. From September 2019 to October 2020, I worked on a frequent to occasional basis for a family assisting them with care for their two young boys. From October 2019 to March 2020, I looked after an elderly lady and also assisting her daughter on Mondays, Wednesday, Fridays, and Saturdays during the day. From May 2020 to September 2020, I worked as a part-time grounds-keeper and also provided care for my employer's child who has special needs on a frequent basis. Additionally, in June and July, I was babysitting another child on an occasional basis. From September 2020 to June 2021, I provided childcare for a young toddler on a full-time basis (10-hrs per day) on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. Last Summer, I again worked as a part-time grounds-keeper along with care for my employer's child who has special needs on a occasional basis. From September 2021 to the end of May 2022, I was employed as a full-time nanny providing childcare for a young infant/toddler who has significant food allergies and also providing additional support looking after a sibling who has special needs. I also took care of their family dog. When requested, I have helped families with dog and cat sitting. This summer, I am working gardening positions.
My hobbies include gardening, baking, and jewelry making. Prior to Covid, I volunteered at the Islington Community Church to provide respite care for children with special needs to support their families.
