Playing, having fun, indoors and outdoors, crafts, being active, story time and working with a routine as that helps with children’s security are some of my attributes. I can be flexible when needed . We are saving to make a trip overseas to visit my family and it will be the first time my girls will meet them later this year. I love going to the beach, parks and on the trails with children. Go on the buses sometimes just so children can enjoy the experience. I’m a teacher by profession. Taught elementary school for over 13 years, had my own approved Home Daycare for 18 years and presently work with students in the Learning Centre.

More than twenty years experience. Hello, my name is Linda and I am a well-spoken, physically-fit woman in my 50s with over 20 years of child rearing experience. I am trained in CPR, have a clean driving record and police background check. My specialties are babies and toddlers but I love kids of all ages. I have had three Covid shots and to my knowledge, have never had COVID-19. I am currently working as a nanny four days a week for a lovely family in Bedford. They have three children and a golden doodle. I started work for them when the youngest daughter was four months old, their son was four years old and their eldest daughter was seven years old. The baby is now six years old and their eldest is now a teenager. I would be willing to work on Friday mornings, afternoons or evenings, an occasional Saturday evening for date night or even a weekend getaway. I’ve never missed a day of work in my six years of working in Bedford except for the one and a half months during the Covid shut down ( I went back to work before most because the parents are in the dentistry field and were allowed to return early). Also, a three week period when the family had Covid and Dr. Strang was advising the people who tested positive to self isolate. I have never been late for work. If you are interested, please don’t hesitate to contact me. Thank you.

I am a believer of experiencing this world in many ways, exploring all the variations it has to offer and sharing this love with children and youth. Experiential learning is a wonderful thing in a world that pulls us towards screens, as it gets children and youth alike a taste of real things! It connects physical learning with cognitive, as the concepts turn into connections and learning becomes a full-body experience, socially, emotionally, physically and cognitively. I love to support the children and youth I spend time with in their interests, as well as helping them experience things they haven't before. In connection to this I also believe in letting children and youth freely explore the world, concentrating in their own manner, like spending hours by the water, being pulled towards what draws them in. This aids in the growth of self-identity, as they trust their intuitions, what interests them, their choices, and helps develop natural concentration that will be used in all walks of life. About ME! I love to cook and share this with the children I spend time with! Being creative always draws me in as I try my hand in crocheting, sewing, woodworking, painting and general crafting! I am currently a student, and looking to spend my summer building fun relationships with families, supporting them in any ways I can! I have been working in the Early Childhood field for over 10 years now and have experienced a broad range of childcare centres with children and families from diverse backgrounds. Alongside working as an ECE, I have nannied for many families over the years, caring for up to 4 children at a time, with a huge focus on calm communication and recreational therapy as a means of behaviour guidance. On top of my ECE certification, I am in my 4th year of a Child and Youth degree, expanding my knowledge into the youth sector. I love to work with families and get to know their specific needs and ways of being, supporting both children and parents!

I was raised in Halifax all my life, I am the oldest of 4 children, I have one sister and two brothers, so I have been babysitting/taking care of them ever since a very young, maybe 9 years old. I love children and I am very good with them. Some of my interests are fashion and beauty, I am very much a girly girl. One of my hobbies is dancing, I love to dance and I have been dancing for 11 years. My last job was as a dance teacher for younger kids, and I enjoyed it very much. I am also a good cook, my mom has taught me how to make a lot of different types of food. I come from an Albanian background, my family and I visit back home which is Kosovo every few years, and it keeps me grounded to my roots and doesn't let me forget my mother language. I graduated high school at Citadel High and attended 1 year at Dalhousie university for my Bachelor of Commerce. I currently work in sales/ marketing but I am always looking to use my free time to help out and make some extra cash. I have been babysitting my siblings and I always took care of children of family friends since I was 12 years old, so 6 years now. I am good at cooking so I would make food for them anytime they were hungry, and I made sure they went to bed on time. I worked as a dance teacher at Maritime Dance Academy for younger kids from grade 1 to 6 and I had to make sure they had fun while also helping them with any of their needs. Graduated high school at Citadel High, and attended Dalhousie for 1 year in Commerce
