I've always loved children & love teaching them. That's why In 2009 I graduated with High honors with an Associate degree in Arts, majoring in Ed./Spec. Ed. I was hired right after graduating in 2009 for Connecticut school system where I worked for 4 years. I then substituted for all Westerly Schools for two years. In 2014 I took a position watching a 6-month-old boy until he was 3 1/2. Then watched a 2-month-old girl for over a year until family moved. Currently with infant for a year. With all we'd go to the park, library, zoo &many other educational venues. I also like to sing, read&go for long walks with the kiddos.

I cannot speak more highly of Laura. When I first spoke to Laura over the phone I got an immediate cozy vibe and asked her to come to our home the very next day. My kids (3 and 1) were drawn to her from the get-go and I trusted her the minute she walked in the door. She is incredibly skilled with small children and has taught me a lot of new parenting skills. As a teacher, mom, and caregiver with years of experience under her belt, Laura is a true Mary Poppins. She is constantly coming up with creative ways to keep my 3 yo entertained (reading, music, playing, coloring) while activities outside the home are limited, all the while giving my 1yo tons of attention and affection. It is not an easy gig managing two young kids who are not at a stage where they can do the same activities yet, and somehow Laura makes it look easy, always with a smile on her face. She is always on time and helps clean up, as well. She is the full package, a superstar!

I'm a mother of 2 and grandmother of 4 boys. I have been working as a full-time nanny for the last 10 years and had enjoyed every moment. I have experience with New born to preschoolers. I'm a CPR and First Aid certified. The safety and happiness of the children are my priority and I love to have fun with my kids, going to parks, walking, etc. If you're looking for someone reliable, fun, and energetic to take a good care of your precious child, I would like to have a chance to talk to you. Thanks for your interest on my profile.

Telma is an amazing caregiver and you would be lucky to have her. Snatch her up if you get the chance! Telma has been with us for two years and has cared for our two year old and one year old with grace, energy and compassion. She started with us when our two year old was 3 months old and has cared for our second son since birth. My two year old now knows his numbers and the alphabet and understands and can communicate in Portuguese and English. Not everyone is capable of handling two kids this young and this close in age. Believe me, I tried to find a weekend sitter (Telma worked for our family 50 hours during the week) and couldn't find anyone that even came close to Telma's energy and capability. One of the mom's in our neighborhood said she would have another child just so she could have Telma as a nanny. The only reason we gave Telma up was because we moved to another State and couldn't convince her and her husband to move with us :-)

FAQs for finding child care

What is the going rate for a child care provider on
The average rate for hiring a child care provider on as of November, 2020 is $14.00 per hour. This rate will fluctuate depending on your location, how much experience the child care provider has and the number of children to be watched. Other factors that may also influence the rate include the need for additional child care duties and any specialized care needs you have, such as overnight care.
How can I find someone to provide child care for my kids?

The first step is to outline what you'd like from a candidate before starting your child care search. Think about how much you are willing to pay, the level of experience you wish them to have, if you want them to have any first-aid certifications, and if you need them to handle additional duties beyond taking care of your kids.

After this is completed, create an account on and answer a few questions to find child care providers that match your needs. You can then either post a job that can be seen by our extensive pool of caretakers, or search for child care providers on based on years of experience, hourly rate, availability, distance from your area, etc. After you have selected your candidates, you can schedule interviews, check references, request additional background checks, and hire the child care provider that best meets the needs of your family.

Is it safe to hire a child care provider during the Covid-19 pandemic?
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, is giving child care providers the option of showing families that they have checked their household for fevers and are being proactive about their health. We can't make any guarantees about an individual's health, but we're hoping this can be the start of a conversation between you and your potential child care provider. You should also familiarize yourself with the official safety information from the CDC before anyone begins working in your home.
