Meet Penny

As a mother myself, I have extensive experience taking care of children. I feel very comfortable with babies, toddlers, and school age children as well as special needs children. Being trained in psychology, art, and an activity director, I have special skills to plan fun activities using art, music, dance, play, reading, outside play, imaginary fun and drama geared to each individual age. I also enjoy finding fun activities in the community such as story time, parks, museums, and walks on the beach. Children use play to explore their world. The language of play can help children learn skills such as spacial orientation, hand eye coordination, positive interaction skills, manners, and colors, words, and shapes. I feel that every child is special and unique. They all have things to teach us and they are a joy to watch.

I have worked with children of all ages in hospitals, homes, and schools. Using a child's innate ability to play, I help children learn about their environment and help them grow emotionally and developmentally. It was never easy for me to leave my child with someone else and I hope that after you get a chance to meet me, you will feel comfortable that your child is with someone who is safe, nurturing, respectful, and kind. It is my goal to be an extension of the beliefs, values, and guidelines of each family. It is important that children have consistency, structure, fun, safety, and nurturing every day. I am committed to ensuring this with each child I nanny.

Penny was a blessing to our family when our newborn daughter began to show signs of colic. Penny is kind, reliable, and extremely patient. My husband and I would not hesitate to recommend Penny to anyone - she is a wonderful rare find!
