Hi Care. com families! My name is Lela. I have 25+ years experience working with children ages 0-18 years of age. I have worked in a school setting as well as in private homes. I started as a lifeguard and swim instructor in high school. I then worked as a teacher with special needs children for 7 years. While working in the school setting I also worked as a nanny. I am now a certified newborn care specialist, postpartum doula and sleep trainer and consultant. I still work as a professional newborn nanny as well. I specialize in taking care of infants, educating and guiding parents on safe infant care techniques. I look forward to hearing from you soon!

I strongly recommend Lela and we certainly look forward to having her here again. The first day on the job Lela and my 4 month old son immediately took to each other. As first-time parents, she was so helpful, and the first thing she helped us improve upon was his feeding schedule as she quickly identified that our son was not frequently enough. Immediately we made small tweaks by increasing his daily eating times and amount, which subsequently greatly improved his sleep time. Lela actively engaged with our son to develop his awareness, core strength, hand/eye coordination, and some early developmental social skills. She took the initiative to take him on walks with the baby carrier when he needed to wind down from a busy day of activities. Everything from tummy time, to singing, to playtime made us feel confidence in knowing we have one of the best to watch him.

Thoughtful And Patient Nanny & Babysitter

(1)
I cared for a family on a babysitting basis from 2013 to 2015, with two children who were 7 and 9 when I started watching them. I babysat and nannied for another family with two children, aged 8 and 10 when I started watching them in 2014. In 2018 I nannied for a family with two children in kindergarten and 2nd grade every day after school until dinnertime. I also have experience with mild special needs children. I was CPR and lifeguard certified in 2011 however I have not been recently re-certified. When I'm looking after kids, I like to set goals for daily activities, like keeping screen-time under a certain amount, and doing crafts so there are plenty of souvenirs from childhood. I enjoy reading and I try to encourage kids to find what makes them excited to read.

Lindsey is a super sweet girl that my daughters absolutely adore. She goes above and beyond playing and enriching my girl's lives with every visit. She has fed them on multiple occasions, and I got double thumbs up from both girls on her cooking. She is my go-to for when the husband and I need a night out. I have had her help transport with juggling conflicting activities (dance, gymnastics, etc.) she has never disappointed. Dependable, kind, smart, and creative are all words I would use to describe her. Give her a shot and you will not be disappointed.
