Professional Nanny

Responds within a few hours
I am a retired high school and elementary school teacher. For the last 10 years I have worked as a nanny to little ones. I love all children, but the little ones capture my heart. I have also helped my older daughter with my two grandchildren, now seven and five. I have primarily worked, quite by chance, with the children of several medical doctors. My references are stellar and they remain good friends. I hold a Master of Arts in teaching in N-6 and an undergraduate degree in secondary education Spanish language. Additionally, I have a special education certificate and certification in teaching reading to children with learning disabilities. I am a warm, funny and loving person. I love to be with children and the feeling always seems to be mutual. I always incorporate learning as we play. Teaching is my joy and I love to watch their progress as they develop. Most importantly, your child will be safe, as I never avert my attention. Your child will thrive, have fun and be safe

Maria was a wonderful addition to our lives! She came to our home each day with energy and smile on her face. She kept my daughter engaged in educational activities throughout the day. I was always surprised at the knowledge my three year old was learning each day! Maria is a kind, compassionate women who will exceed all your expectations as a caregiver! We were sad to see Maria go!

My husband and I could not be happier with Ms. Patty and her family home daycare. The care, love and attention she shows to each one of the children is clear the moment you walk in the door. She engages them with arts and crafts, holiday activities and curriculum based on their ages and developmental stage. Our son joined Ms. Patty seven months ago and it is amazing to see his growth. We feel so comfortable and confident sending our little guy everyday knowing he is in the best hands!

Just dropped off our 13 month old for his first day of daycare and--as first time parents--we couldn't be more at ease to have him in Ms. May's care. The process of finding the right daycare has been a long one, but we were immediately impressed with Ms. May. She was responsive to our email inquiry, her website conveyed a genuine desire to provide an enriching environment for children, and her license checked out perfectly! But what really made us absolutely certain is when we visited her. Not only did she carefully adhere to COVID 19 precautions including requiring visitors to have masks and wearing a mask all day herself with the children, but--behind that mask--she still managed to convey an incredible warmth and compassion for our little guy. He warmed up right away to her and her lovely home (which is set up exactly like a kindergarten class!!!). We couldn't be more thrilled to find her! We're so glad you've moved to the area Ms. May!

Mary has an amazing daycare! We are so happy we found her for our 18 month old. He truly enjoys going everyday to see Mary and the other kids. She has lots of toys and nice yard for the kids to play outside. She even offers early, drop off, late pickups and date nights for her kids. The flexibility is amazing for busy parents. At the end of the day, after being with the kids all day, she never seems to get tired of being with the kids. She offers lots of attention, hugs and kisses.
