Rochelle’s Bio

Hello family! My name is Rochelle and I am just the person you are looking for. I love caring for children! I believe it keeps me young, even though I'm only 33 years old. I have been in the child care field for 16 years! I worked for 2 centers for a total of 10 years and with many wonderful families privately for the last 6 years. I was fortunate enough to have worked for one of the best Children's hospitals, better known as CHKD, for 3 years until I got married in late 2007. Also, More recently, I have become a mother to a beautiful, easy-going baby girl ( born on 5/29/15). I have been fortunate enough to have my daughter accompany me to work since I started back in July, and I would love to continue doing so while working with your family. She fits in wonderfully with any children that I care for.
As far as personality, I am fun loving, out going, a real leader, assertive but not pushy, happy, active, creative, and a motivator. I have a thirst for knowledge and this is why I am an avid reader and writer. I believe you are never too old or young to learn or teach. Following this belief, I am currently enrolled in Sandhills college studying Business management and also going to obtain a certification as a medical administrative assistant. The great character traits come in handy when shaping young lives through care.
I know that it is a privilege and an honor to help a family raise their precious little ones. And for this reason, I am willing and able to go the extra mile to help where and when I'm needed. I sincerely hope that I can help your family by providing exceptional care. I am looking forward to learning about you, your family, and your family's care needs. In the meantime, feel free to continue checking out my profile. Hope to hear from you soon!
feel free to contact me via e-mail at: nannywalkerccs@yahoo.com

Rochelle is currently working with my family babysitting my three girls and we couldnt be more pleased. She is very professional, on time and really knows how to handle kids.

With our crazy schedule she was able to hit the ground running. She has great orginizational skills and time managment. I love how she entertains the kids with trips to the library, movie dates and PJ Parties. She is without a doubt first rate in my book.

Her skills on the job were good. We have used her several times with no problems. But recently we had a serious issue with her due to her scheduling habits, in which she failed to mention (until after I had already left) an appointment that put us in a very serious bind.

Just be sure there's open communication about any plans she has PRIOR to leaving her in charge. She was hard to reach after I was away, which caused anxiety.

- Edie N.

Provider's Response

In response to this review, I'd like to clarify a few things. I did have an appointment scheduled (for an ongoing medical issue) for an HOUR after Mrs. N was suppose to be back from her appointment. (And with the military, it is nearly impossible to get appointments, so I have to take what is offered.) Mrs. N called me about 30 minutes before she was due back to say she would be late and asked could I stay later. To that I replied I couldn't because of my appointent. On many other occasions, I have stayed later ( up to 2 hrs) to assist the family's ever changing schedule. So, staying late has NEVER been an issue. However, as a way to try and help Mrs N., I told her I would cancel the appointment and reschedule,which is what I did. And Lastly, in response to being hard to reach while Mrs. N was away, I was attending to the children when she called and did reply to her and her husband's calls and texts once I was free. I also feel that clear communication and having a care giver with lots of open availability is essential for Mrs. N's family. In addition, I make it a priority to keep an open communication with all of my families and was truly hurt upon reading this review. I am deeply saddened that Mrs. N did not contact me personally about this matter. I truthfully thought this matter had been resolved once she arrived home and we spoke. I send all my best to the family and wish them luck with future care needs.

Thank you,

Rochelle W.

We have been using Rochelle for the last 10 months and love her! I have 2 pre-schoolers and a baby and have always felt completely at ease leaving Rochelle in charge. Her competence and friendly demeanor are the best. Highly recommend!

Rochelle watched my children a few times. I was pleased with her relationship with the children and trusted her abilities to care for my children. I have not sought out many providers for my children so I was surprised at some of her policy and practice expectations. For our family, we could not afford her rate (12$/ hour). She informed us that she doesn't provide care when your children are sick and if you cancel due to this you must pay for arranged care times. It may be something that many providers expect, it simply wasn't feasible for our family for part-time child care.

- Jen L.

Provider's Response

I am glad to hear that you were pleased with the services that I provided. I enjoyed working with your family. However, I think there was some confusion about my sick policy.I do provide care for children with minor illnesses (such as cough, runny nose, low grade fever, etc). If there is a last minute cancellation, I do charge a fee since the time has already been reserved specifically for the family that has requested care. I also offer rescheduling if care, if both schedules permit. I think our schedules may not been able to accommodate rescheduling of care at the time. If you would like to give it another try, we can discuss an arrangement that will with well for both of us. Take care,
Rochelle
