"What impressed me the most about working with ABC Nanny Source was the level of detail and organization in which such confidential information was presented. I received an extensive profile of each nanny candidate prior to her coming to my home for an interview. Once each nanny arrived at my door, I was fully relaxed because I felt I already knew the person in front of me! That’s how detailed these profiles were. The process was made very easy for our family and within a matter of days, I hired the perfect nanny for our children!"
 
 

Yvonne loves working with Nanny Agencies in Kirkland because she values giving each child the one on one attention they deserve!


“My name is Yvonne I am a nanny with a lot of experience with newborns, twins and children born prematurely. I am a loving, caring, responsible, trustworthy, and honest person. I love reading, going to the park, walking, and singing. I am very friendly with all people and hope you are interested with what I have to offer. If I were asked to describe in one sentence the reason I have chosen to be with Nanny Agencies in Kirkland, it would have to be that I love working with children! I have been serving in some form of childcare experience for over 10 years and can honestly say I love and enjoy what I do! I feel the children are very important, loving, and you can learn a lot from them. My goal as a nanny is to is to be an example in their lives and teach them to be great individuals. I am willing to do housekeeping that includes light housework. If I had to describe myself in five adjectives, I would say that I am punctual, reliable, trustworthy, dependable, and flexible. Activities that I would like to incorporate in the daily plan for the family I care for would include reading, play dates, going to the park, etc. If asked to describe the perfect family seeking a nanny like me I would hope they would be loving, treat me with respect, and have good communication with me in order to make me feel like part of their family.”

“Yvonne has been an excellent caretaker for our twin boys. Yvonne became our nanny when our boys were 3 months old and has been with us every day since. From the first day she joined us, she earned our trust as a knowledgeable, caring, safe and responsible caretaker for our babies. Dealing with twins is never easy but Yvonne handles it all with the confidence of a true pro. Yvonne not only made sure both boys' needs were always being met, but she also made sure they thrived, learned routines and developed under her care. Yvonne single-handedly taught our boys everything they know, from ABC’s and numbers, to manners and table etiquette. We owe all of this knowledge to Yvonne. She is great at understanding their moods and desires. She makes healthy, tasty food that the boys love, and she makes sure they are outside and active every day, no matter the weather. She also pushes them to be independent thinkers and doers and to explore their boundaries. As her employer, we are also extremely grateful for her flexibility and reliability. We both work relatively long hours and we knew we could always count on Yvonne to put the boys first and help us manage our schedules as well. She is always reliable and there for our family when we need her at the drop of a dime. Even when we needed her to help out on a weekend, Yvonne kindly obliged knowing it would mean more time away from her own family. Yvonne has a truly adventurous side and loves to take the boys on excursions, whether it’s to the park, for a drive in the car, to the library or the gym. We have the utmost confidence in her ability to shuttle them from here to there and appreciate her willingness to set out on her own via car or on foot. Yvonne is a first-rate nanny and we highly recommend her to any of the Nanny Agencies in Kirkland. We are forever thankful and grateful for the amazing impact that she has had on our lives and those of our children.”

“Yvonne is extremely dedicated to her job and will be an asset to any of the Nanny Agencies in Kirkland. She never misses a day's work, she has come to work in snowstorms. She is excellent with our children, both of whom are extremely attached to her. Looking after twins can be very demanding, especially when they are infants, but Yvonne coped with this admirably, quickly establishing a routine and rapport with them. She is always developing small projects with them; from teaching them to come downstairs, to having them learn their address and phone number. She is also an excellent disciplinarian, but she never has to raise her voice or speak sharply to the children to achieve this. Rather she often uses humor or simply tell the children "Am I smiling now?” Yvonne has been very flexible about the hours that she works. While usually working from 8:30 to 5:30, five days a week, she has also accommodated our schedules by working a four-day a week schedule, or by working evenings and occasionally staying overnight, when necessary. Yvonne is also helpful around the house, doing the laundry, keeping the kitchen spotless and doing small amounts of shopping. We trust Yvonne completely: we bought an automatic station wagon for her use and she takes the children to play with other children whose nannies she has met or to their favorite places to go out to lunch. She also normally picks the children up from nursery school on the days when they go. We feel completely comfortable leaving the children with her overnight; in the last year, we have both been away from home for several nights at the same time. On one occasion we took advantage of the fact that the children enjoy being with Yvonne and went on vacation just the two of us for a couple of days!”

“Yvonne provided childcare in our home and we highly recommend her to any of the Nanny Agencies in Kirkland. When we moved, she agreed to come with us and stay for several weeks in order to make the transition easier on our children. When Yvonne started working for us, our son was six weeks old. When he was two-and-a-half our daughter was born, and Yvonne began caring for both children. Yvonne is a warm, caring, trustworthy, and extremely reliable. She has kept our children happy and safe while in her care. She seems to have a particular talent for soothing babies. Both of our children have responded very well to her as infants. As our son grew older, he enjoyed playing games with "E" and learning the alphabet. I often came home to find Yvonne crawling around on the floor giving a "horsey back ride." However, our son also learned that he needed to listen to Yvonne and do what she told him to do. Sometimes we find he pays more attention to her than he does to us. For example, she has always had more success getting him to eat things he does not want to eat than we have. In addition, she has done a great job getting him started with potty training. Yvonne has been very reliable, rarely taking a sick day. She was also very flexible about accommodating our changing schedule. We felt very comfortable leaving our children in Yvonne's care. On several occasions, we left our son with her over night while we were out of town. Yvonne has also been very helpful around our house. She took responsibility for doing the family laundry, making sure that everything was not only washed, but also neatly folded. She also assisted with keeping our house neat and orderly. Although not part of her required responsibilities, she often took it upon herself to clean a bathroom when she noticed it needed cleaning or take out the garbage when she noticed that the can was full. Yvonne loves taking our kids for long walks or outside to play. We will miss her very much!”

“Yvonne worked for our family for two years, since my daughter was 9 weeks old, and the best thing I can say is that at age two, my daughter is a very happy, joyful and curious child. My husband and I work full-time, and due to a pending relocation out of the area, regrettably we must part with Yvonne. We will definitely miss her and hope that the Nanny Agencies in Kirkland will find her a loving family. Yvonne is extremely responsible and reliable and has taken fantastic care of our daughter in every way. When our daughter was a baby, she was always teaching her new things, from eating by herself, to crawling and walking and talking. In addition to spending time with her at our house, she also takes her to classes and to preschool every day. She takes her responsibilities very seriously, from getting her dressed and fed to getting her to her activities on time. I always felt she was looking out for the best interests of my daughter. In fact, the other moms and teachers always commented how lucky / was to have her as a nanny. I was also very impressed and deeply grateful about how she handled one particular emergency. My daughter spiked a fever while I was in route home, and she immediately thought to call an ambulance and get her to the hospital. She called me on the way so as not to delay getting immediate care for my daughter taken care of. She thought quickly and decisively and put her in front of all else, and I will always be very thankful for that. Yvonne has lived with us during the week and has been a pleasure to have at our house. She is quite considerate, and very neat and respectful. She also has a very positive, cheerful attitude and never seemed to be put out by anything.”

“Yvonne has done an outstanding job with our daughter. She has been taking care of our daughter since the age of 1 year and 4 months. In such a brief time, she has had a great impact on the development of our daughter. Yvonne has been instrumental in our daughter’s mental development. For example, they can often be found reading, drawing, writing, or counting. Our daughter has a great deal of respect for Yvonne and follows the schedule that Yvonne has implemented in her daily schedule. In the warm months, they are out walking for extended periods of time and our daughter loves it. Our daughter’s social development has been aided by Yvonne's influence. She has been taught to be well mannered and consistently says please and thank-you. We often find our daughter pays more respect to the rules around Yvonne than around us. We have found Yvonne to be very dependable and reliable. Attendance and punctuality have never been a concern for us. She has been willing to stay late when the situation demands and is always amenable to schedule changes. We were never concerned about the safety and welfare of our daughter while in Yvonne's care. Yvonne has been very responsible around our house. She not only took care of the babies’ clothes, but ours as well. The house was always left clean and neat daily, not necessarily as she found it at the start of her day. Yvonne needed little direction and acted independently when she saw some things needed attention. She also had a great deal of respect for the wishes and concerns of myself and my wife. She will be a valuable asset to any of the Nanny Agencies in Kirkland because she is always willing to listen and acts professionally.”

“I met Yvonne through one of the Nanny Agencies in Kirkland and she has worked in my household for the past 14 months. During this time, she has taken care of my two children (2 boys, ages 4 and 9), run errands, and performed light housework. Yvonne is very professional, timely, and responsible. She encourages good behavior and politeness in the children. She listens to and carries out my requests for healthy eating and limited television/ computer/video game time. She is helpful in setting up play dates. I have never been worried about the safety of my children or their playmates. Yvonne has always showed up on time and been willing to cover in the event that I run late. Yvonne is very willing to run errands and help with household chores when the children are in school. She is conscientious about doing exactly what I ask – she always completes the "list" of errands/chores!”
