Hello, my name is Aislinn Cairns and I decided to recently start a dayhome. I have two girls who are 4 years old and 16 months old.
I have strong background experience in childcare. I graduated in 2008 from Mount Royal College with a diploma in Child and Youth Care Counselling. I immediately went to work with the Children's Cottage Society as a Child and Family Support Worker. I have strong knowledge in child development stages. I also have First Aid and CPR, and background checks.
I am a fun, outgoing and nurturing person. It is very important to me that children feel safe, loved and happy!
Activities I offer are theme days (Old MacDonald, Knights and Princesses, surrounding holidays), excursions to the nearby playgrounds, backyard time in the kiddie pool, playhouse or sidewalk chalk drawing. I have a fourth bedroom that I use as a playroom and an indoor bounce castle which we like to bring out alot in the winter. Lots of crafts and activities surrounding themes and dancing to Raffi.
I follow the Canada Food Guide offering breakfast, lunch and two snacks. I am a peanut friendly home. We love our peanut butter and Nutella here.
I do not drive the children around so I cannot offer transport to preschools or other places.
I currently have openings for 2 children starting July for one small toddler and another over 2 years of age. I am looking to be more of part time schedule (3 days/week) but I am flexible to work with something like a nurses schedule as well (Example: work 4 full days for a few weeks then maybe only a couple days the next few). Please don't hesitate to ask about your schedule if you do shift work.
Please contact me for further information. I feel this small ad space doesn't do me justice!
