I have worked with kids my whole life and I am looking to support a family for their child care and potentially lactation needs. I have a background in child and adolescent mental health and psychology. I am a certified lactation educator and taking my board exam to be a Lactation Consultant in the fall. I also have doula training. My experience with kids is diverse. I've been a babysitter, camp counselor, tutor, after school program manager, and research assistant studying infant motor development. I have CPR and First Aid training. I absolutely love working with infants. It warms my heart to be able to be able to support them and watch them grow. Children are so brilliant and funny. I am also happy to support an outdoor and active lifestyle for your children! Please let me know if you'd like me to have a copy of my background check emailed or if you have any additional questions about my qualifications.

I feel so lucky that Vicky took care of our baby girl when she was 7 to 9 months old. We connected through a mutual friend after a series of disappointing caregiver interviews. Talking to Vicky was a breath of fresh air - she's clearly very knowledgeable about child development, interested in getting to know each individual kid and very responsible. Baby girl bonded very quickly with Vicky and clearly was excited to see her. Vicky navigated potentially tricky situations: two parents working from home, bottle refusal and shifting nap schedules. She followed our gentle parenting style and offered great ideas to try based on her experience working on child development research projects and studying to be a lactation consultant. She sent us great pictures during the day and generally made us feel like our girl was in great hands.

Part Time Nanny/Errand Runner/Assistant

My name is Valerie & I am a 29-year-old living in downtown Wilmington. I began supervised babysitting when I was 10 years old! I played volleyball at a high level so finding a normal job was difficult so through high school & college, I babysat & nannied. Since I moved to Wilmington I have worked for multiple families. I have been with one family since my first week here. The kids are now 4 and 6. Their needs have changed but we have become very close so I help out one afternoon a week. I helped other families with children ranging from newborns to 5 years old. I have been juggling multiple part time jobs for 2. 5 years & am open to continuing that but ideally looking to focus my energy onto one or two jobs. I am most comfortable around newborns-toddlers. I received postpartum doula training 1. 5 years ago. I love being around toddlers to watch their little minds grow. I love getting involved with sensory bins & other hands on activities as I believe children learn best that way.

Valerie began working for my family when I returned to work and my son was 3 months old. As a first time mom, I was extremely anxious returning to work and leaving my son, but Valerie made this transition so much easier. It gave me such peace of mind to know that he was at home with such a warm, loving person. Valerie has been with us for 5 months now and it was been amazing! She is truly the most loving, caring, dependable person and quickly became a part of my family. They spend their days strolling, listening to music, playing with toys, going on adventures, etc. - so much better than just sitting around the house! We adore Valerie and truly believe that she would be a wonderful addition to any family :)
