Carolyn’s Bio

Always home, always available for immediate care. open for snow days, sick days or just mommy n daddy time off days. I am a Christian woman with values n Morales. I  have a full time home Day Care in Norfolk at 23503.  Open 24/7 by appointment. Three miles from Gate 3A. I have had the pleasure of this home day care full time for nearly 10 years. And the pleasure of one little girl for 10 years n her brother who is 5 September to include two med tours which she lived here in my home. I am a very honest and reliable person with 20+ years of caring for children in Norfolk. I am very much into explaining principles to the children rather than the discipline; however I do have a time out corner. :-)
I have a very relaxed, fun, loving
atmosphere, no drama, no trauma. I play n teach words in eight languages as well as a few n sign language. I encouage abc, color numbers, shapes n sizes in English n Spanish. We Sing we dance, we have fun! All toys r learning tools, washable
markers to help me change colors
of my walls (gotta love it). I have t.v.
time, n potty training time.
I provide well balanced meals n
nap time with no drama. I also keep parents informed of their day too include photos. There are several references n parent reviews that I
encourage you to call. My focus is
on the needs and safety of the children.
I charge $120 week Mon - Fri. for one
Or $6.00 an hour for date night or Drs appts. II
look forward in hearing from you.
Thank you for your consideration.
And may God richly bless you.
Carolyn Allen

Great Sitter

We use Carolyn as A part time sitter and my son loves to go there and play with her dog. I'm very particular with who watches my son and Carolyn has been a life saver. For as long as we live in VA she will be our son's Sitter.

Carolyn or " Nana" is amazing with children. Our daughter has been blessed through her time w Nana . Each and every child that she cares for know they are loved in a special way. She has a gentle loving manner, speaking so softly to the children but they listen to her. They sing, dance , play, read, have nap time and eat healthy food. I trust nana to give my daughter the best care!
