About Me

Hello! My name is Lydia and I am currently residing in Darlington. I am a student in university back in Canada but I'll be living here in the UK for the next couple of months and looking to make a bit of extra money.

My Experience

For the past 4 summers, with the exception of the last where I worked at my father's pharmacy, I have been surrounded by children. In 2015, when I was 14 years old, I travelled to Ecuador and worked in an elementary school where I had the amazing and unique opportunity to develop strong, personal relationships with the sweetest children I've ever known. In the summer following this one, I travelled to Kenya where once again, I worked with another small elementary school. This again, was a very unique and eye-opening opportunity, and I built so many strong bonds with so many beautiful children. In the summer following Kenya, I went to the camp of Muskoka Woods in Ontario for a month. The particular program I was in was a leadership program, and due to this, I got to spend a week of my time there looking after the younger campers, and sleeping with them in their cabins overnight. Finally, the summer following this, I worked as a day camp counselor for two months where I spent 5 days a week looking after children from the ages of 2 to 7. Again, I got to build strong bonds and personal relationships with each and every one of them. During this time, I was also responsible for staying with the children during swim time, and ensuring their safety in the water, so I also have experience in this realm. In addition to this, I have a huge extended family and many young cousins around the ages of 4 to 12 who I babysit regularly during the summer. I've loved every experience I've had with children and I truly believe we have a lot to learn from them.

My Qualifications

Having worked as a day camp counsellor for two months as well as my prior experience with children, a first aid training was mandatory. Therefore I am first aid certified.

I am available weekdays and most weekends at all hours.
