Hello! My name is Nicole and I’m currently a stay at home mom to 3 wonderful kids! 2 of my kiddo’s are now in school so now it’s just me and my 2.5 year old son and I’m very excited to have decided to watch children in my home again! I have been a nanny for almost 16 years, I have my undergraduate degree in child development and I am currently only 2 classes away from my Masters with a double concentration in education and early childhood development. I also have formal ABA (applied behavior analysis) training which enables me to care for children with special needs and behavioral challenges. My approach to caring for children is lots of praise and positive reinforcement. My days are filled with fun and adventure, I love being outside, exploring, going for walks or to the park, cooking, making crafts with my kids. I am also committed to a clean lifestyle, keeping as many chemicals out of my house and food as possible. We are a very active and creative family and I would love the opportunity to care for your child as well!
