Meet Marlene

Hi everyone!

I'm here to offer your family loving care, nurturing, fun, consistency, guidance, plus the full gamut of child care services. I have 15 years of experience caring for others and I thoroughly enjoy helping families like yours.

I love children, pets and people in general. Call me crazy but after raising 28 foster children I've been called worse and we still love one another.

Here's a snapshot of My experiences: 1992-1996 Youth advocate, child care provider, activities planner/participant, at a battered women's shelter 4 years full time. Serving 330...

Hi everyone!

I'm here to offer your family loving care, nurturing, fun, consistency, guidance, plus the full gamut of child care services. I have 15 years of experience caring for others and I thoroughly enjoy helping families like yours.

I love children, pets and people in general. Call me crazy but after raising 28 foster children I've been called worse and we still love one another.

Here's a snapshot of My experiences: 1992-1996 Youth advocate, child care provider, activities planner/participant, at a battered women's shelter 4 years full time. Serving 330 youth annually. Published 2 pamphlets on preventing child abuse and neglect.
Lesson learned~Many children were not safe so I became a loving nurturing foster care provider and helped reunify children who were safe to return home once their parent/s got the help needed to keep their loved ones safe when possible.
1993-2002, 9 years of giving my heart and home to parent and guide 28 spirited young people, I am "mom" to 24 of 28 beautiful children. My children ranged in ages 3 months-25 years. Cooking, cleaning, shopping, diaper changes, guiding, teaching, listening, driving, and intervening as needed were part of daily life. Some days were challenging, we successfully worked through each challenge together.

As a teen I provided child care for 3 years to infants and younger children. What a great experience to help families enjoy a night out with their spouse and have fun with little ones.

Once again, I've decided to extend my heart, childcare skills, expertise, knowledge and time to those of you seeking a safe caregiver. Feel free to call me anytime between 7 a.m. -9:30 p.m. My heart reaches far beyond changing a diaper, washing babies, helping with baths, cleaning, cooking and playing, teaching addition, subtraction, multiplication, etc. I truly love and enjoy children and look forward to helping your family.

I am comfortable with all ages and stages of infants, toddlers, children or youth. As a Social Worker, I have the knowledge, skills and abilities to assist your family.

I will always value helping others and helping every family by keeping your children safe. Resume available upon request. References provided by professionals who have known me for anywhere from 7-20 years.

Be safe in life and love!

Allison E. says:
Marlene helped our family out when we were in a crunch without hesitating. She got to know our three-year-old son before her official first day in order to be sure that she would know our parenting style and rules. She is experienced and insightful -- often coming up with creative (and successful) techniques that we have adopted to help with our high-energy boy. She is punctual and always thorough in reporting... More

Allison, Kyle and P,

It was such a pleasure to help your family and enjoy each day with P. He is a brilliant little boy and I greatly appreciated your offer to care for him. I would love to see all of you again in the future if you ever need care for him again. He brought about utilizing various parenting techniques that thankfully worked well as he adjusted to the needed temporary changes required to accommodate...

I called Marlene for short-term care the night before I needed someone, and she did not hesitate to help! She is so kind and easy to relate to, making it seem like you've known her for a while! She was prompt & made me feel at ease leaving my 5 month old (and my mutts) in her care. I definitely recommend Marlene for you childcare needs, and plan to see if she is available the next time I'm in need!

Lindsey, Thanks for your kind and considerate review. It was a pleasure to care for your little guy and let the dogs out to enjoy your lovely yard. You are also a person who is very easy to relate to as well as feel comfortable with. If you need future care please do not hesitate to call. Have a great and safe Holiday! Marlene
Juanita B. says:
Marlene is fantastic! That sums it up! But I will elaborate. Marlene came to the interview and all my animals loved her, she got down and played with my daughter. The days that she watched my daughter she went above and beyond and helped out at my house with housework. She was great at communicating with what went on during the day. Great positive energy and I knew my daughter and animals were in great hands! More
