My name is Karen and I live in Bells Corners. I have my Early Childhood Education Diploma from Algonquin College as well and 20+ years of experience. I have worked in several private homes, daycare centres and schools with babies up to school age children. I also do have some experience with special needs children. Besides my work experience, I am also a proud mother of 17 year old twins, a 21 & 23 year old. Thank you. My interests include swimming, cycling, going for walks and reading.

My work experience includes working in a daycare and then as a nanny from July 1994 until late Summer 1997 just before the birth of my first child. I then became a full time stay at home mother for the next 12 years, raising my 4 children who are now 17 yr. old twins, a 21 & 23 year old. During the 2009/2010 school year, I worked as a volunteer teacher's assistant at a Public School. I enjoyed this very much. I worked mainly with the children that were having difficulty learning. It was very rewarding to see the progress the children had made throughout the year. From Autumn 2010 to Autumn 2011, I worked as a preschool teacher at Grace's Home Daycare in downtown Ottawa. From Autumn 2011 until May 2014, I worked as a live-out Nanny caring for twins from age 12 months old up to 3 and 1/2 years old. In 2015/2016, I worked as a nanny taking care of an 8 month old infant (started at 3 months) and a 5 year old. This position ended April 2016; the mother decided she would prefer to work from her home office from that time forward. I then worked from Summer 2016 until Fall 2017 looking after a 2 year old boy and 4 year old girl until the girl started junior Kindergarten Fall 2017. I then looked after a 5 year old girl with severe special needs from Fall 2017 until Spring 2019 as her mother finished up her teaching degree, and until the family moved to Saskatchewan. From Summer 2019 until the present, I am caring for a 2 1/2 year old boy, a 4 year old girl and a 9 year old boy, until September, when the 4 year old begins Junior Kindergarten. Additional Experiences/Qualifications: I do have some some experience with children with special needs. I also have experience with twins. I was a nanny for a family with twins and of course my experience with my own twins. They are now 17 years old.

I obtained my Early Childhood Education diploma from Algonquin College as well did two years of Social Sciences at C. E. G. E. P. College.
