Colleen’s Bio

I am currently available evenings during the week or anytime on weekends for occasional or regularly scheduled needs.  If you have an urgent need during the week, check with me I might be available. I have my schedule in advance also so you never know!
My childcare experience started in the 4th grade with two toddlers! I have truly loved children my entire life. I continued babysitting through high school; then in college had a couple live in nanny jobs. For one and a half years, I lived with a family full time - at first there was a 4-year-old and a 2-year-old; followed by a newborn. So, yes, I have had experience with infants and "multiples". After college I began my working career but continued in my helping fashion. I married; we got into foster care; and followed that with adoption. I also did respite care for other foster families needing a "respite". This was usually weekends. My focus has been working with special needs populations. So, I've truly done all there is. I am also a guardian to an adult with developmental disabilities.
I always get along with all ages of kids. I'm fun and silly all the time. I play on the floor and am interested in what they are doing and thinking.
I have tons of professional references as well as child related.  I have a new safe car for outings as well.
I also have two dogs - one is a Springer Spaniel and the other is a Tibetan Spaniel. I love them dearly! I think I might love them more than some of my family! Previously I had two diabetic dogs and I gave them insulin shots for 11 years. If you have pets; that is great! No problem here! 
 
 MEMBER: I am now a member of the International Nanny Association and will be completing the necessary tests to receive my INA Nanny Credentials.

Colleen, was great. I needed a baby sitter last minute and she was ready to help. She was quick to get back to me with questions I had and quick to give me refrences. She was on time and the kids seemed to enjoy here very much. She even brought bubbles for them and toys of her own to play with them. My house was so clean, dishes done and toys put away, better then what i left it. She was very kind and I will be using her again in the future.

This is the American dream family. The house was so warm and inviting and the kids were so nice and fun. I had a great time.... anxiously awaiting a chance to go back and see the new arrival!

Collen watched my 2.5 year old and my 6 month old while my husband and I were busy entertaining friends in our home. Colleen was very prompt and responsible. She occupied and took care of the kids with no problems. I'll definitely use her again.
