I was a nanny in high school during my teenage years for the families in my neighbourhood. I have over 5 years experience with safe accompaniment to and from school. I have also worked at camps and in private schools organizing the crafts and sports for children and have worked with a nutrition program for kids, serving healthy meals in school settings. currently I am in school so I am looking for evenings after 430 or weekends thanks.

Although I do not have my ECE I have a strong network of friends who are in the field and support my work life. As well. I like to invest in the interests of children. For example, if a child raises an idea they want to further explore (for example. frogs. or trees) I will further look into the subject and try to provide resources and activities based on the individual.
