Hey! My name is Shannon Parola but everyone knows me as "Shanny The Super Nanny". 

Figuring Out Childcare For Your Family Can Be A Daunting AND Scary Task!

Over the past decade, I've helped parents figure out the best childcare choice for their children and 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. 

My philosophy 


 Every family is unique and different.

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. 

During this current time of COVID, whatever you and your family have to do to survive and get through this 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, finding a nanny, or creating a pod with friends, we will figure it out.
