Janna’s Bio

I'm a fun, organized, and happy nanny! I have worked with all ages from newborn to teens with excellent references from all of their parents.  I began babysitting at the age of 12 and became a professional nanny at 22 but have loved caring for children as long as I can remember.   My qualifications in childcare include a degree in Early Childhood Education (May '07), current certifications in CPR/First Aid/Universal Precautions & AED, and over fifteen years of experience in providing childcare. I am active with local groups for the sharing of new ideas, arranging play dates, and overall continuing education in the field of childcare.  To assist me in staying active with family-oriented issues, I subscribe to Parents, Parenting, Family Fun & Parent & Child magazines. I attended the International Nanny Association annual conference yearly plus National Nanny Training Day 2013.   I am a mother as well, to Sam, my 10-yr old daughter. I have taught her many basics such as colors, shapes, numbers, and the alphabet - the same rudiments I teach all of my young charges. My philosophy is to continually introduce new concepts to children .  I believe that children learn through creative play but also need structure to better prepare them for going into grade school and beyond. On weekends you can find me hanging out with my family. I help Peanut Butter Plan make sandwiches & deliver to the homeless. I help many food banks & shelters by providing much needed toiletries by clipping coupons. I love giving back to our community!

Janna was my nanny for over a year and she was always available even at the last minute time and time again. She is also the most punctual, dependable person you will find! She was a big help to me when my daughter was born and always washed bottles and made more formula and such without me even asking for that kind of help.

Janna watches my two little boys while I go to school part-time and on last minute occasions. She is very punctual, texts me while she babysits with updates and pictures, has lots of initiative and motherly instinct - you can't put a price on that!

Janna is wonderful with my 2 1/2year-old twin girls. I trust her with transportation, she is always on time, and she understands the importance of getting them outside for air and exercise. Being a mom, she also knows about routine. She made sure they had a good diner, baths, and a bedtime story. You can always count on her! Rochelle

I recently signed up with Sittercity, and found Janna a few days later. I needed someone asap, and had never left my son with a babysitter before. After visiting Janna in her home, I felt extremely comfortable and confident with her as a babysitter. When I picked my son up from her home, he was relaxed and well-fed. Janna is patient, kind and loves children. Once I start working again, we want Janna to be our regular babysitter!

Janna is a great babysitter. She is always reliable and often is available in a pinch. She is very willing to accomodate her clients' schedules to make everything run smoothly. I would highly recommend Janna.

I used Janna's drop in babycare one day and it was a very good experience. My daughter, 17m, spent several hours with Janna and her super well-behaved daughter who is 4y old and a sweet and generous child.

I came back in the afternoon and my daughter was having a great time, playing with all of the nice (and superneat) toys that Janna has. She had napped and eaten well, and was overall very happy. Needless to say, I will have Janna take care of her when the next opportunity comes up.

Janna is an excellent nanny. She is completely professional. She has watched my 8 year old and 5 year old many times. I trust her with transportation to activities and events. She keeps the kids engaged and she is truly involved with them. I would recommend her to anyone looking for an experienced nanny.

Janna is wonderful with our children--they have so much fun that they don't want to leave. She is also very flexible and has been a life saver many times!

It took my daughter no time at all to be comfortable and happy at Janna's house. With educational toys, fun things to do outside, meals provided and even some one-on-one time, my kiddo has come home each time happy and excited to go back again. Janna takes time to listen to the kids and helps them grow and become good little people during those times that parents can't be with them. Thanks, Janna!

You know those "oh *****!" moments with child care? I had one last week. I got called at work by my son's daycare. They said he was vomiting and needed to be picked up immediately. I sent a text to Janna asking if she could pick him up, and she got back to me right away, and got him and took care of him that day. Janna has been a lifesaver for us this week. She is always available, days, nights, or weekends. Her hourly rate is within the range of most sitters that I have interviewed. Janna is very caring and competent. I know my son is in good hands when he is with her.

what can i say about janna without making her sound godlike. well here's what i can say. we are parents new to needing nannies or sitters as we have always had the luxury of family. we relocated to colorado a couple of months ago and quickly found how difficult it is to find the right person to care for our son. janna was very friendly, polite, helpful, and continued to be all of the above and more even after we made our final decision. she keeps you informed throught the day with activitites and updates, including pics of your child in action. our son was new to having a stranger keep an eye on him, but quickly felt welcome and comfortable at janna's. we are very grateful to have had the pleasure to meet janna and she really set the bar high for other potential nannies. give her a call for your nanny needs and you'll see that you wont be dissappointed, she has many contacts and is very outgoing. thanks for everything janna, sorry it took me so long to leave a review.

Janna was wonderful for my son Jimmy Page and I. We just needed a drop off place for when my regular sitter was unavailble and he enjoyed spending time with her and her lovely daughter. I enjoyed Janna's clean house, and over all organization as a caregiver and a person. You will enjoy her and she is a very good sitter I would use her full time if I needed to. Elena

What else can I say about Janna that hasn't already been said? I have used Janna a couple of times so far for my 5 1/2 year old daughter and 2 1/2 year old twin boys. They loved being at her house. It is perfectly set up for child care. I was nervous about dropping my kids off at a babysitter's house, as they have always been cared for in their own home and familiar surroundings. I was sure the boys would cry as soon as I turned to leave, but the environment Janna provides really invites kids to play and have fun. My kids gave me a quick glance when I said goodbye, went about their business of playing and exploring and no one shed a tear! My daughter was able to play and make friends with her wonderful daughter. And the boys had an absolute blast and did not want to go home. Janna is very accommodating and helped me out at the last minute for both occasions. It's obvious my kids are very comfortable with and love being around her. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone.

Janna has been watching our son for 6 months now and has been a great find for us. Our son loves going over to see her. She is very flexible as my shifts vary from from week to week.

Two words to describe Janna: Amazing and flexible. What more can you ask out of a provider?! Janna has been taking care of my 9 month old since she was 3 months old and treats her like her own daughter (who share the same name!) My daughter is always in the best mood when she is picked up. She caters to both our feeding and nap schedule. Her home is very cozy and my daughter has a blast crawling around playing with everything. As a part-time RN, my schedule is constantly changing and Janna is very accommodating. And when I get called off for a shift or put on-call, a text to Janna is all she needs to let her know what is going on. Janna is perfect for our family and we look forward to many more years with her!

Janna is awesome! I'm a nurse with crazy hours and up until last year have never needed a sitter for my son. I've always been hesitant to leave him with a sitter for long periods of time. I found Janna on sittercity over a year ago and have been taking him there ever since. She's a natural and so accommadating with my schedule. I feel safe and comfortable when I drop him off. She always updates me via text and also sends pictures. When I pick my son up he tells me how much fun he had. I highly recommend Janna!
