introducing myself

Hi everybody at this forum,
My name is Ana perez and I am from  Venezuela. I am a Montessori certified Teacher and work in a preeschool here in Caracas. I will be travelling to Edmonton hopefully in January to learn how to become a live in caregiver for children. I also hope that after my 7 months of training I will be able to get a job as nanny and be sponsored by an employer. I really want to live and work in Canada and learn as much as I can from the new experiences and people there :)


Hi Layuyi,

Welcome to and thanks for your introduction. :)

If you have any questions regarding expatriation, please feel free to ask.

Have you been to Edmonton before?

Hi Priscilla,

many thanks for your message. I have not been to Edmonton before, neither to Canada.
I am very excited and think it is quite a lovely place to be in. I dont know...
I would like to get a cheap mobile phone and laptop when I get there. Do you know about any bargain or second hand shops?

Thank you and have a wondeful time :)


You can use Its a website where people sell 2nd hand stuff. Of course you have to becareful with some of the items posted there. As for laptops, go to and look for refurbished ones - they are typically cheaper. Or wait for the time when there's a big sale like Canada Day or Father's Day etc.

Hi there

Welcome to this forum. May i know why you choose Edmonton? I used to live and work there so you made a good choice 🙂

May i know what kind of child caregiver you meant? Where will you take the course?
