Enthusiastic, Compassionate, Knowledgeable Care Provider in Vancouver
My name is Chelsea. I am available for part-time or casual respite care throughout the summer months with the possibility of continuing throughout the school year. My formal education includes a Developmental Services Worker diploma, an Early Childhood Education diploma and a Bachelor of Arts degree. All of my education took place in Ontario, where an ECE certification is equivalent to a British Columbia ECE Diploma plus Special Needs Educator and Infant and Toddler Educator.
I have worked with individuals with developmental disabilities and mental health challenges in schools, day programs, community, employment and residential settings. Some of these experiences have been through organizations like Community Living, while others have been through school boards and work placements, while more still have been private respite care.
I am the second oldest of seven children in my family, so taking care of others is second nature to me. Social and emotional well-being are top priority for myself and those I care for. I believe strongly that everyone must feel safe, calm and content in order to develop the best of their abilities.
