Experienced, Reliable And Caring Nanny

I started as a primary school teacher in Jamaica. I have also worked as a teaching assistant in a child development center in NW DC and as a nanny for families in DC. I have loved working with kids for all my working years. I have taken care of newborns, toddlers, school age and teens. I have almost always started with them as babies and love to see them grow and become their own little individuals. I have worked for five families as a nanny. I worked with one of these families for 17 years from the time their boys were six months until they went to college. I practice social distancing and other COVID safety measures. I am looking for a part time job that is near a metro or bus and does not require driving.

Maureen worked for our family as a full-time nanny in Washington DC for over 15 years. She started with us when our older son was six months old, and left our employment when we no longer needed a nanny, when our by-then two boys were 17 and 12 respectively. We trusted her absolutely, even with out older son who had life-threatening medical issues. The boys loved, and love, her. She is warm, affectionate, calm, and has a great sense of humor (and a great giggle!). She was a reliable source of safety for the boys and, as they grew older and their lives got more complicated, also a great listener and source of advice. She and the boys (now 24 and 19) still stay in close touch. Maureen was completely reliable, never missing a day of work and always arriving punctually (or rather, early, to make sure she wouldn't be late). She fully understood how our lives only worked because of her and took that responsibility very seriously. I recommend her without reservations.

We LOVE our HLC family. This center has been a great fit for our daughter. She is always excited to see Ms. Marielos in the morning and never wants to leave! Unfortunately we missed a few months when COVID first took hold and we started to notice a difference as our daughter was not talking and communicating as much. We are so happy to be back. We can't say enough great things about HLC.

Manjula has been a wonderful nanny to us ! She took care full time of our two daughters over the last two years and a half. We are very lucky to have found her. She started looking after them when my younger daughter was 2 months, and my elder one was 2 years and a half. She is very kind, thoughtful and experienced. Both my daughters loved her so much! . The best thing about having Manjula as a nanny was that we did not have to worry about the girls during the day, knowing that they were being well-cared for. Manjula treated our daughters like family. Our daughters especially enjoyed going with her to the neighborhood playground, to the library and to occasional playdates. In addition, Manjula makes delicious food from fresh and good ingredients. She is a very hardworking and honest person. We had a great experience with Manjula and we are very grateful to her for looking after our daughters so well.We highly recommend her ! Our younger daughter has now started pre-school, and Manjula has opened her own family daycare. We wish her the best in her new endeavour, and we are sure that the new children coming to her daycare will be very well cared for. Helene and Jean-Sebastien
