Carolyn’s Bio

Always home, always available for immediate care. Open 24/7 by appointment. I am a Christian woman with values n morales; Very energetic and love children, my goal is to foster the growth and development  of their minds and to provide a nuturing role to the children. I have had this home Day Care in my Norfolk home at 23503 11 years. I am a very honest and reliable person with 20+ years of caring for children in Norfolk; and i am very much into explaining principles to the children rather than the discipline; however I do have a time out chair. I have a very relaxed, fun, loving atmosphere, with no drama, no trauma. I play n teach words in eight languages as well as a few in sign language, I encourage potty training. I 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 as well as helping the children to be socially acceptable in society. My home is exactly 3.3 miles from Gate3A and 7milrs from shore Dr n Independence..
I charge $120 week Mon - Fri. Or $6.00 an hour.
My hours are 6am - 6pm... Not to exceed an 8 1/2 hour day. 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.

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!

Last Minute Magic

Carolyn is fantastic and I couldn't have asked for better. I needed a sitter last minute to attend an important meeting at work (5+ hours) and she was not only very responsive but also flexible to my needs. The best part was that my 4 children absolutely LOVED their stay and that can't be overstated enough. I am incredibly happy to have met her.
