Heidi’s Bio

I have always had a strong connection with children and believe in the value and importance of early childhood education.  I enjoy getting to know each child as an individual, finding out how they learn best, and planning learning activities accordingly.  I worked as a live in nanny for five years, then did summer care for the same family the following two years.  After that, I was a foster parent for my two year old nephew for almost two years.  I went back to working in childcare after having my daughter in 2004.  I was a preschool teacher of 2 yr olds from 2004-2010 and earned my CDA (Child Development Associate) in 2010 with an Infant/Toddler specialization. I currently work as an administrative assistant at my church and do babysitting part time for several families. I would love to find a full time nanny position, especially one involving babies and /or toddlers.   I love working with children and consider it my life's work.

Heidi is such a natural with kids! My 7 month old took to her immediately (as did my dogs which is unusual for them). Her calm personality and easy going nature really put my mind at rest. Will definitely use her again.

Heidi Rocks! She's done babysitting for us with my now 2 year old. She was the first babysitter he ever had and she was very calm, reassuring and patient with my incessant phone calls asking how he was doing the first time she was with him. Since then she's babysat for us a few times and also has done house sitting and dogsitting a few times.
Heidi is punctual, reliable and a pleasure to work with. We feel lucky to have met her and have her care for our kids and animals.
