My main interests include psychology, sociology, behaviour management, child development, and more. My hobbies include music, hot yoga, hiking, writing and reading. My best and most dominant attribute is my empathy, this is what I use to lead my work in caring for children and others. I am fun, energetic, and like to always keep children engaged and on a schedule. Hello! I am a 27 year old female, born and raised in Nova Scotia. I have a degree in Therapeutic Recreation. Also, I have completed various courses that align with the ECE program, as stated by the ECE Training and Classification Services. I've cared for sets of twins, infants, toddlers and school age. I have a lot of experience with people of all different abilities, including specific disabilities and those with behaviour management. I have worked in the hospitals and nursing homes supporting patients and programming for residents, all with various risk levels of behaviours. I have always loved children and have experience with them from a young age. I have worked with youth in a work placement who had behavioural issues, mental illness, and often times exposure to trauma (I lead with trauma informed care.) Diploma in Therapeutic Recreation, will be obtaining a degree in this field by the end of 2019. Possibly switching the degree to ECE.

Hello! I'm a nearly 22 year old female living with my sister. My father was in the military when I was younger, so I've been to a good handful of countries. I'd like to think that this helps make me an open and culturally appreciative person. My hobbies and interests include drawing/arts and crafts, writing stories, and playing games (video and otherwise). I also enjoy other creative activities, such as sewing and baking. I'm a very patient person and I always do my best to be kind and respectful. I'm terrified of disappointing people, so I put a lot of effort into everything I do. I'm a very straight-laced person so I don't use any substances, including tobacco and alcohol. I'm pretty shy, but I've worked as a cashier in a grocery store before so I have a pretty good customer service face that helps me greatly in social situations. I've never worked directly as a babysitter before (aside from one instance when I was a teenager), but I have done 100 hours of volunteer work at a day camp. My responsibilities at the time were to ensure that the kids were safe and accounted for, that they were participating in activities, resolving issues between kids, cleaning up after them, etc. It's been a while since then, but I am considerably more confident in my ability to care for children now than I was then. I will ensure that any rules that are described to me are followed, such as dietary restrictions and screen time allowances, and I will try to find fun and creative ways to entertain the child/children in my care. I enjoy arts and crafts, story writing, and games, so I have no doubts that I'll be able to find something fun to keep them busy. I have completed two years of university with my courses being focused around languages and linguistics.

I absolutely adore infants, children & adolescence and love spending time with them being a good role model and a positive influence in their lives. I am a very active person who would be able to keep your children busy. I believe in doing hands on activities with children instead of simply setting them down in front of a tv for entertainment. I'd be more than happy to take your children to the park, do crafts, play games, and whatever else they like to do. I have ample experience with children in multiple settings as I have been babysitting for the past 10 years, teach swimming lessons, worked in a day care, and have been a camp counsellor for the past five summers. I have also volunteered with Big Brothers Big Sisters both as a big sister and an in-school mentor, as well as volunteered in an elementary school classroom. I have spent a lot of time working with individuals with various special needs, including Down Syndrome, Autism, ADHD, learning disabilities, and physical disabilities.

I was born in Montreal, Canada and grew up going to school there. I spent my childhood coming to Nova Scotia every summer to sail and spend time with my cousins. I always loved being close to the ocean and enjoyed the friendliness of the locals. I have family in the Southshore area and decided to move back last year. I love being in nature and spending time at the beach, being creative and staying healthy with yoga. I love being with children and dogs, taking care of plants. I am not married and have no children. I currently go to school in the city to to study to become an ECE and try to spend my weekends with my dog Bella as much as I can. Worked as a professional fulltime nanny in Montreal for 6 years, I have been babysitting for 10 years plus. My responsibilities included creating a safe stimulating environment, meal prep, picking kids up from school, bathing and dressing, indoor and outdoor play, light housekeeping, pet care, etc. I recently went back to school to study Early Childhood Education to get my Level 2 credentials at NSCC in Dartmouth.

Hi! My name is Ciara , I'm a second-year bachelor of arts student studying psychology at Dalhousie University. I have always had a passion for working with children, which has motivated me to pursue a post-graduate degree in education in the future. My experiences have provided me with great knowledge and understanding of successful ways to interact with children and support their development. I will never leave your house messier than I’ve found it, I value outdoor time over screen time and I love to do hands-on activities with the children that keep their minds developing. This can be reading with the kids or working on their creative skills by making crafts. To get to know me a little, I have done many extracurricular activities over the years. When I was younger I used to be an Irish dancer, I played the piano and played hockey. I only really stuck with hockey when I reached high school and just recently stopped playing, now that I live in Halifax during the school year. I absolutely love the outdoors, so going for walks or going to the park is something I'd love to do with your child(ren). Lastly, I love baking. I worked in a bakery for 4 years and found a passion for creativity with baked goods. I hope this allows you to get to know me a little better :) Past jobs and experiences: Emergency Supply Teacher (April 2022 - Present) - DPCDSB - Cover planning time, classrooms, and tutoring time - Marking the days work - Organizing the day and keeping track of student's whereabouts - Timing activities so students finish before recess and hometime - Helping kids out with their work and encouraging them to independently solve problems Babysitting (2018 - Present) - Ages 6 months - 11 years old Activities I do while babysitting: - Cook/Bake - Clean up after messes created during the babysitting period - Keep them active and entertained (walks, crafts, reading) - Review homework given at school to the child(ren) Grade 1 Tutor (Dec - Jan 2021) - I worked with a grade 1 student to increase his reading level, work on sight words and practice writing to develop stronger motor skills.
