Today is Thanksgiving and I want to thank Brooke for taking such good care of our little princess. We being 1st time parents were struggling and Brooke helped us on a lot of things like SLEEP TRAINING, feed/food schedule, developmental games etc. and most of all she was very responsive and patient with all of our questions. Our daughter enjoyed her company a lot...We are moving to another city and we will miss Brooke.

Fun, Artistic Child Care Provider

Responds within a few days
My name is Lian and I'm a mother of 3. I was a nanny in college and in the recent years I have been providing childcare at my home. I am certified through Red Cross for Adult, Child and Baby CPR, First Aid and AED. I have my Associates Degree as well as my Bachelor's Degree in Business. I also have college credits in Life Span Psychology (Early Childhood Development), Psychology, Sociology. I strive to provide a clean, healthy, safe and fun environment where your child can develop socially, emotionally and intellectually. I encourage children to use communication skills such as reasoning, decision making and active listening. In doing so, it creates a positive environment where the kids build their self esteem and independence. My primary form of discipline is redirection with an explanation. I believe consistency is key and with clear guidance the kids know what to expect. Which all in all creates a great place to be!

Where do I start with Lian?? My husband and I moved our family to the Bay Area 7 months ago and without family and friends, Lian has quickly become a part of our own family and has made our transition so easy! Within the first week of care for our 1 yo son, Lian ensured us that our child's safety and development were/are top priorities. She has a very caring and fun-loving demeanor and always tries to engage our son in different activities. From crafts to walks around the neighborhood, Lian truly does it all. Lian goes out of her way to make sure that her home is safe and feels like your own home, making drop-offs a better experience for this first-time mom. We could not be more grateful for her and would recommend her to anyone!
