Hello! My name is Leah. I’m married and I love the Brooklyn area. I’ve had lots of childcare experience! I’ve was a nanny for two kids for two years (age range between 1-5) and I work at a daycare caring for infants (3months and up), preschool and middle school ages. I’ve babysat for many families through the years, along with caring for my own families babies. Additionally, I’m a doula! I nannied for a family in Brooklyn last year & I can provide that local reference. I’m very responsible and love giving parents peace of mind and a confidence to know their kids are safe and happy! Contact me for inquires.
