My name is Mary and I am a third year student at Dalhousie University. I am majoring in Psychology and Sustainability in hopes of becoming a teacher! I love working with children and have many years of experience. I was a babysitter for 6 years, worked as a ECE Assistant and an Inclusion Support Worker. I am outgoing, energetic, and love being around people. I also have 1 year of experience working in a kitchen and know how to prepare healthy meals. I can provide great references as well as a police check. I have completed my Emergency CPR and First Aid as well. I would love to get to know you and your family and feel as though I would be a great candidate.
I babysat for a family of three boys for about 6 years. When I started the eldest was 2 and he was the only child. A year later his brother was born and 3 years after that the youngest was born. I looked after them until I moved and the eldest boy was 8. I babysat for them about 2 or 3 days a week and more on my summers. I also would go on vacation with the family such as camping trips and trips to the fair, beach, etc. I would also help take the boys to the doctor or dentist when needed. In grade 12, I took a course at the College called Introduction to Early Childhood Education and loved it. I learned all about creative fun games for children and about the psychology behind it. I learned about children from each age group and their needs. It was incredibly informative. I have had two amazing summer jobs the past two years working with children. I worked as an Early Childhood Education Assistant at The North Grove in Dartmouth. Here I developed programming for the morning camps we held as well as holding family playgroups and childcare a few times a week. The second was an Inclusion Support Worker for Oak Bay Recreation in Victoria. Here I worked as an Inclusion Support Worker at summer camps and worked one on one with kiddos who had diverse needs. I also have experience working with children with disabilities. In high school I took 2 courses working with kids in Room 135. They were my favourite classes in all of my 4 years of high school. I also was in a club called Lunch Buddies where we would partner up with one of the students and each lunch with them one of the days of the week. As well, I volunteered with a program called Community Living, where I was a helper for a special needs bowling league. From those experience I got a job this past summer as an Inclusion Support Worker.
