Professional Nanny & Caregiver

Avg response < 1 hrs
I have two children, ages 23 and 34 and 2 grandsons, ages 4 and 2 years old. I absolutely adore them and LOVE being a grandmother "LeLe". I have worked at Odyssey Early School at Trace Crossings and OLS Learning Center in their infant rooms caring for babies ages ranging from 6 weeks -12 months for a total of 15 years. I have nannied for several families in their home. I know that my calling in life is to care for children, and I believe interacting with them on many different levels is important. The greatest joys of my life are my children and grandchildren. I understand the importance of providing a nurturing, safe, and joyful environment for children to grow and learn. Because of this, I know finding the right nanny to care for your children is one of the most important decisions a family can make. As I love all ages my specialty age is newborn. I would love nothing more than to provide these services for you and your children. A background check is provided.

Alethea was with my family for over a year and she took care of my son (then 3 months) once I returned to work. A professional from our very first interaction which continued until she relocated. I consider her family. She was amazing to our child and our Boxer. As a first time mom, I never once felt worried or concerned when I returned to work. She made that transition super easy. Alethea is knowledgeable, caring, genuine, punctual, etc. The best! Too many examples to list. If she is available, I would lock her down immediately.
