Caring Nanny With 10+ Years Experience

Responds within a few days
Hello, my name is Michelle and this is my tenth year taking care of children. What started as babysitting on date nights for some of my high school teachers has blossomed into a decade of caring for children for several families across the state of Rhode Island. From after-school pick up, full-time nannying, and weekend date nights, I have looked after children of all ages and multitudes. I have experience with newborns, toddlers, school-age children, and pre-teens, as well as experience with children who have special needs, twins and families consisting of three or more children. I am trained in CPR as well as First-Aid, and I am also a doula certified by Carriage House Birth. I have kept relationships with every family I have worked for throughout the years and they have provided letters of recommendation that I would love to share with you. I am moving to Madison, WI from Providence, RI Summer 2021 and am looking to help families care for their children, their pets, and their home.

It is with great pleasure that we recommend Michelle F. as a caregiver. She watched our one-year-old son frequently from 2018 onward. Michelle is always punctual, responsive to calls and text messages &wonderfully engaging with our toddler. She is intelligent, warm and has a myriad of experience with children of all ages & personalities. She follows directions to the letter (i.e. bedtimes, snacks, TV, etc.) and clearly takes much pride in the way she conducts herself and in the quality of care she provides. In addition, our son has a food allergy. Because of this health complication my husband and I have always been very hesitant to leave him in someone else's care. Michelle is a very sharp, intuitive and vigilant person and we always felt completely at ease walking out the door with her in charge. Most importantly, Michelle seems to truly enjoy all of the time she spends with a child. We trust her alone in our home and we trust her with our most precious treasure - our child.

My name is Brittany, I'm 26 years old, I grew up in NH, and I now call Madison, WI home. I graduated from the University of Maine at Farmington with a B. S. in Early Childhood Special Education. I have provided childcare for close to 11 years and I have experience working with children of all ages, as well as children with mental, physical, and emotional disabilities. I love occupying time with children with music, outdoor activities, reading, dramatic play, and arts and crafts! I am comfortable providing transportation, light housekeeping, cooking, bathing, implementing bedtime routines, changing diapers, and other tasks that are needed. Just ask me if you need anything else! I am an energetic, enthusiastic and loving person who strives to nourish your family's values and provide excellent, quality care to your loved ones! I am currently available for part-time nannying, occasional babysitting, and pet care!

Brittany took care of our two daughters and quickly became a part of our family, for over 6 months. She starting caring for our infant when our infant was just 3 month old and was able to help me with each milestone. She was extremely patient with our rambunctious toddler and was able to address any toddler anxieties that came up with a calm reassuring demeanor that only someone with her experience would possess. She was able to balance the two babies, and the extra responsibilities that come along with two babies, like a professional. She set the bar high for caregivers and I was more than impressed with her ability to balance it all. I would highly recommend her.

VAKC has cared for both of my children and I couldn't recommend it more highly. Rebecca Breda, the director, is incredible-organized, professional, capable, and committed to supporting families. She always looks for ways to make it work. The teachers are all absolutely wonderful as well. Most are truly "kid whisperers." They also have fairly long hours (7-5:30 pm) and serve lunch and snacks. Our kids loved it there are we are so grateful for VAKC!
