Lydia’s Bio

Hello Families! I am 26 years old in my final two quarters for my AA in Early Education, and a stay at home mother with a 2.5-year-old boy. I am looking to watch children in my home, but I am flexible coming to the family's home given I feel it is a safe and comfortable environment and bring my son with me. I love to create age appropriate activities, build lasting partnerships with the parents, and believe in gentle discipline that relies on communication, redirection, and natural/logical consequences. I have worked in Early Childhood field since 2006 as an assistant and substitute teacher, but most of my experience in the field has been as a nanny for infants and toddlers. During my time as a nanny I watched twins, siblings, and did nanny shares so I am comfortable with varying age groups, as well as multiples. My passion is genuine and started at a young age as I grew up in family home childcare center that I eventually worked for. I knew I loved kids, but wanted the education to back up my passion and it has really been a great experience, and I love learning about child development. In addition I have taken classes on advanced curriculum, creating environments, and parent-teacher relationships. Now that I am a parent myself, I think I offer another unique quality to care. I fully understand the love a parent has for a child, and it pushes me to be better understanding of family needs and expectations. In my care safety will always be the top priority, but it will be a safe environment that is full of love, nurturing, and stimulating learning experiences that create positive impacts on a child's development and self esteem. I am available to answer questions via phone, email, or in person. Please feel free to contact me with any other questions. I look forward to hearing from you and I thank you for your time and consideration.

Lydia was our very first nanny for almost 2 years. I have 2 kids (ages 3 & 1). She started taking care of our son when he was 6 months old, and our daughter when she was a newborn.

Lydia impressed us from the start with her positive energy and age-appropriate knowledge, and childhood education background.

Our kids took to her right away, and she always found something fun, active and educational for them to do.

Lydia was like a member of our family (and still is), and we wholeheartedly trust her with the safety and well-being of our kids. Any family would be lucky to have Lydia take care of their kids.

Lydia took care of our 2-month-old for a week in November. She was great! She was always on time, jumped right in, and left fantastic notes. When I got home at night I loved reading about how our little guy did during the day. She brought her baby along which was fine with us - And I never felt like she wasn't going to take care of our son. I actually felt better knowing that the two babies would spend the day playing together. She also helped us out one day by also watching our 2-year-old. Again, she did great. I definitely would hire her again.
