I have been a nanny for about 8 years now! I started taking care of 3 kids ages 1, 7 and 10. While working with that family I also babysat and still work as needed family who the oldest is 2 and the baby is 15 months. Now, I'm back searching for another job, because the oldest boy is 17 and the youngest is now 9, and they no longer need me for the hours I need.

Hi families! any name is Courtney, a loving nanny with over 7 years of experience with infants, and founder of HoneyBee in-home infant nursery. My main passion is to gently encourage social, cognitive, and motor development in little ones through play and creative activities.

After graduating with a degree in psychology and infant development, the concept of “honeybee” came to fruition. I wanted to create a warm, comforting, “home away from home” environment for infants that focused on their unique developmental goals. Since opening, I have helped so many families find the perfect balance between a one-on-one nanny and a traditional daycare. I consider my nursery a nanny share because compared to traditional daycares with 1:4 ratios (so high!), we have a 1:2 ratio at all times. This creates a nurturing personal atmosphere where parents can feel confident that their child is getting all the personal attention they need.
I am happy to announce enrollment for HoneyBee is now open and we have 6 slots available. These slots get filled very quickly, so I encourage you to reach out soon and find out if Honeybee is a good fit for your family! :)
