Hello, my name is Heidi. I’m a nanny and caregiver from Germany with over thirty years experience caring for children of different ages, backgrounds and special needs. After my son was born in Frankfurt, I began working as a Tagesmutter, running a daily after school program for 3-4 children at a time, creating a safe space for them to play, learn, create and explore the outdoors. I love working with children and find my natural calm lets them relax and feel at ease.

My years of diverse experience caring for children and the elderly have made me a well-rounded caregiver who brings patience, thoughtfulness and grace to every job. As a mother myself, I’m naturally attentive to children's’ arising needs.

I have a degree in Education, speak both English and German fluently, and am a Certified Holistic Health Coach. If you’re in need of a responsible and reliable caregiver for your children who has years of experience and a great deal of heart, I would love to help.

I am a friendly and energetic nanny with over 20 years of extensive full-time and part-time experience. I am motivated to help children become happy, healthy and well-behaved. I have devoted and reliable experienced in creating schedules, following through on commitments and maintaining routines. My major in college was Early Childhood Education grades Pre-K through 5th grade and dual certification in children with disabilities CPR/First aid certified and criminal background check available. I could not finish at Kean university due to cost. Although I have taken care of children for over 10 years, I decided that becoming a full time nanny would give me the same joy. The joy I get is seeing children grow into intelligent happy healthy and well rounded little people who will grow up to be a kind compassionate self loving and successful adults.
