Hi, my name is Elaine and I'm a mom of 3 boy's. Ages 22, 16 and 15. My boys are all self sufficient. I just left a job taking care of newborn twins. Unfortunately, the family moved to New Hampshire and bought a house and it became too far for me to travel. I've also worked at an in-home daycare. We took care of ten kids, ages newborn to 6 years old. Before I started to do nanny or babysitting, I own my own house cleaning service. I did this for 25 years. After I had my 3rd son, I had to stop and became a stay-at-home mom. I was basically a household manager when I worked with the twins. All household chores got done. Including, vacuuming, sweeping and mopping the floors, all laundry including the parents. Changing sheets and making beds, and bathroom and kitchen clean up. I believe children should eat healthy nutritious snacks and meals and I think fresh air is great for children. Taking walks or going outside to play. Also I do have a son with tree nut and peanut allergies so I have experience with that too. I am certified through the state of Mass to work with children. Which basically means, I've had an extensive background check extensive background check and I've been fingerprinted. I have a safe reliable car and proof of insurance. Also a perfect driving record. If you have pets that is fine. Nanny agency is something I've been doing for many years and I truly enjoy doing it. I think it is a very special experience to watch a child grow and thrive.
