Meet Marlene

I am a stay at home mother to my energetic and intelligent 3-year-old son & our newest blessing; currently, 2-month-old daughter and I love being able to do so. It would be a privilege to look after and care for your little one whenever you are not available.

Besides having my own children (still sounds funny to say or write that!), I have also worked with children and teens most of my life (of course, starting with babysitting and volunteering, but in my adult profession as well). I worked in the education field for 4 years and volunteered in a school youth ministry...

I am a stay at home mother to my energetic and intelligent 3-year-old son & our newest blessing; currently, 2-month-old daughter and I love being able to do so. It would be a privilege to look after and care for your little one whenever you are not available.

Besides having my own children (still sounds funny to say or write that!), I have also worked with children and teens most of my life (of course, starting with babysitting and volunteering, but in my adult profession as well). I worked in the education field for 4 years and volunteered in a school youth ministry as well as elementary religious education for almost 10 years now.

If you are interested, I am currently teaching ASL and Spanish to my son & daughter and would be happy to teach your family as well. I take my children to music classes and weekly story time (sometimes bilingual storytime) at the library. We read all of the time and love park play and other opportunities to play and learn, such as the children's museum, jump & bounce houses, community events or field trips & toddler play groups. While at home, I love to play games, do all sorts of arts & crafts, listen to music & dance & work on pre-K developmental & educational skills in math, phonics, & reading, etc.

I wholeheartedly hope to have the opportunity to meet your family. I think together, our children would benefit from each other and build some wonderful memories. I am confident that with good communication up front and an understanding of your expectations and goals for your little one(s), we can achieve great things and have fun doing it.

I am happy to provide additional information and references upon request.

Craig S. says:
Marlene watched my 2 boys for me while I was in class. She did a great job. I had her go over their lessons with them as well as clean up their room, and she did a fantastic job with all of it. Given her personality and warm nature, I felt completely comfortable leaving my sons with her.

Yancey Y. says:
We are so grateful that we found Marlene to provide care for our precious bundle during the weekdays while we are at work. Marlene is extremely caring, thoughtful and nurturing. She cares for our baby girl the way I would if I could stay with her all day. We love seeing the pictures that she sends during the day and look forward to seeing the daily reports that she emails us. Overall, we could not be happier! More

John K. says:
When we met Marlene for the first time, I was amazed. This is one of the most wonderful people I've ever met. She is a kind, warm, engaging person and is extremely conscientious. My son absolutely loved her- he was even going through a shy phase, but was immediately happy with Marlene. She kept him engaged and happy all day long. Day 2, when I opened the door, he took one look at her and broke out into a huge,... More
