Diane’s Bio

I have extensive experience caring for newborns and toddlers, as well as elementary school-aged children.  I also have experience working with developmentally & physically challenged children.  I have taken CPR classes (including infant CPR) and will be happy to provide references to you on an individual basis.  I believe it is important to provide activities that encourage mental and physical interaction, and will actively participate with your child/children in these situations.

Diane is beyond being an excellent sitter for my children. She gave me the impression that my children were treated every bit as lovingly as if they were her own blood relatives. Typically a sitter is just "present" so as to have some adult supervision local to the children while they occupy themselves and play independently and they adult uses their time for their own constructive persuits. Diane is very much not typical in this respect -- she has been extremely engaging with my 4-year old twins, participating with them in playtime outdoors, driving them to the park, taking pictures of my twins which they enjoy looking at and maintain as a keepsake. I give her my highest recommendation and assure you that your children will be absolutely thrilled to spend time with Diane.

Diane started with our family when our daughter was 4 months old and has been an amazing influence, teacher and friend to Ayla. Ayla is now 10 months old and our family is relocating to California. If we could take Diane with us, we would! Diane is a loving, bright, patient and reliable person. She is also well-versed in child development and has a natural affinity toward children.
We feel fortunate to have had Diane as part of our family. We are convinced that our daughter owes much of her positive development to her presence. Diane has been a pivotal component of Ayla’s development in sitting, crawling, standing, clapping, talking, transitioning into eating “adult� foods, etc. Her approach to caring for Ayla complements our parenting well, as she respects our personal philosophies while being confident enough to independently make day-to-day decisions regarding our daughter. Diane has helped shape Ayla into the person she is today and we can’t thank her enough for this positive influence.
Although Diane’s regular schedule is 30 hours a week (8am-2pm), she has been flexible to help with additional hours in the evenings and on weekends. She has also assisted with errands and shopping when time has been tight for us.
We have found Diane’s unselfish and diligent care of Ayla a true blessing and confidently recommend her to you as a sitter/nanny.
