During my second maternity leave, my husband and I agreed that I was happier when I was home with the kids.
Not surprising, I have always enjoyed being with kids and planning engaging activities for children.
Throughout high school I was a jr. Girl Guide Leader and in university (for one year), I was leader for a Girl Guide group.
I also spent seven years as a supervisor with the Ontario Ranger Program, a youth program of the Ontario Goverment, based in Killarney Provincial Park.
After I returned to work, we cancelled a camping trip with family friends and I began training with the Child Care Providers Resource Network in Ottawa (CCPRN).
I spent my weekdays working for the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources, implementing policy and legislation, primarily with the waterpower industry in Ontario and I spent many a Saturday at the offices of the CCPRN completing training.
Shortly after, we found out we were expecting our third child; a baby girl to complete our family and be the youngest sister of our two boys.
Now I am considering the feasibility of obtaining certification in early childhood education, part-time, to acquire the credentials that substantiate my interests and ongoing committment to learning about early childhood development.
After two years in the making, I am both prepared and excited about the opportunity to support your family and becoming a partner in the care of your child(ren).
