Hi there! My name is Alejandra I'm an experienced nanny that loves taking care of children and interacting with them. I started babysitting for a lot of family and friends and I've been a nanny since the age of 15. I have experience with babies and toddlers. I am very responsible, hardworking, reliable, and I am always on time. I am currently trying to pursue my education in the health field.
Background Check
Reviewed by Christi M. 5/5 stars
Alejandra served as a nanny for my two boys, age 5 and 7. Alejandra is a very hard worker. She would chase after my kids, engage in fun activities with them, and was mindful about cleaning up after the kids so that we didn't return to a mess. She was never on her phone while watching my children. She would prepare meals and snacks for the kids, and even made homemade cookies and pizza when my kids asked to "cook" with her. She would do the dishes and sweep the floor when needed without anyone asking her to do it. Alejandra is very kind and patient. Alejandra would work with my boys on art projects and helped with distance learning, including logging my boys into their classes and sitting with them to help them figure things out over the computer. She would also try to encourage them back to the computer when they didn't want to do the work. We found an in person school for our kindergartner, which is why we didn't need to continue to have Alejandra as a full time nanny.

As preschoolers gain more self-esteem, they may feel ready to take on the world. Our Preschool program enhances that confidence by providing activities to help children become problem solvers and lifelong learners. Through independent exploration, structured activities, and hands-on learning, children will work on early literacy, math, science, and social studies concepts. A healthy dose of running, jumping, and dancing keeps them active too.

Ages 2-3:

Let us help your 2-year-old develop his/her independence and confidence in a setting that encourages a sense of community. We plan your child's activities based on a program grounded in early childhood fundamentals. Your young learner will increase her language ability, practice early counting skills and learn to cooperate with friends through group activities.


As toddlers develop friendships, self-esteem, and curiosity, our Toddler program will help them explore their world in a safe and nurturing environment. Our curriculum is based on the philosophy that children learn best through experiences such as circle time (learning letters & numbers in both English and Spanish). So each day is filled with fun activities, indoors and out, that excite and develop toddlers, giving them the comfort and confidence to speak those first few important words, as well as make their first friends.

Babies grow and learn every day. Our goal is to provide a safe and nurturing "home away from home" where babies can explore and make new discoveries. We know that learning through play is extremely valuable at this age and our Infant program is designed to give babies the skills that will serve as the building blocks for a lifetime of learning.
