Every family is unique and different. This is my philosophy.
What works for one family may not work for another. I strive to help families and nannies find a system that works best for them so everyone can thrive.
The pandemic has thrown family life into chaos and created significant changes. Whatever you and your family have to do to survive and thrive is OKAY! No one is or should be judging you. As a childcare coach, I'm am here to help you figure out the BEST option for your family. Whether that's going back to daycare, staying home, searching for daycares, finding a nanny, or creating a pod with friends, we will figure it out.

Over the past decade, I've helped parents figure out the best childcare choice for their children and helped them navigate the nanny hiring process.
After I became a mom myself in October 2019, I intended to go back to work as the local super nanny taking my daughter with me, but COVID-19 prevented me. Stuck at home, I found myself answering numerous emails and phone calls from families and nannies in a panic over their current childcare situation.
Thus how VIP Childcare Coaching was born.
I HELP PARENTS:
Figure out a childcare option that works for their family during this COVID-19 crisis and beyond. This includes: discussing staying at home, assistance from friends & family, daycares, nanny, nanny shares, au pairs, or group pods.
Lockdown their top priorities and needs for their children
Navigate the hiring/search process. This could include: creating a job posting, applicant review, finding acceptable centers with openings, interview prep, assisting with creating a contract, etc.
Troubleshoot problems or upcoming childcare situations like traveling or moving
Find age-appropriate educational activities and places to keep children engaged
Create family schedules that provide harmony and flow to household
Offer tips and tricks to solve common parenting problems
Be the mediator when nanny/caregiver problems arise
Get advice or ask "stupid questions" without judgment from a fellow parent and nanny.
