Krista’s Bio

I have worked as a full time nanny for the past 5 years. The three families that I worked for have all had twins and although it was double the trouble it was also double the giggles, joy, cuddles and love. Working professionally for five years with three sets of twins has given me great insight into early childhood development, but I also learned a lot studying Early Childhood Education and Psychology in school and during my time working at a Montessori learning center. As the child of 2 teachers I take a stricter stance on age-appropriate expectations and behaviors, but I also feel it is necessary that children of all ages gain a complete understanding of why they are being reprimanded, while still recognizing that people are good and behaviors can be good or bad. I take pride in raising well mannered, thoughtful, social and caring children and although I enjoy working with all ages of children, growing with a child during their first two years of life is my specialty.
