"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!"
 
 

Shawna loves the Nanny Agency in Tacoma WA because she can focus on the well-being of the children in her care!


“I have been working in a childcare setting for 5 years now. I love children and teaching. I have been serving in some form of childcare for over 5 years and can honestly say I LOVE what I do! I feel the children are amazing! I love watching them learn and try new things. My goal as a nanny is to take care of the children to the best of my ability and help them become independent individuals. I am willing to do housekeeping that includes; vacuuming, dishes and dusting. If I had to describe myself in five adjectives I would say that I am loving, caring, energetic, responsible and trustworthy. Activities that I would like to incorporate in the daily plan for the family I care for would include different types of games and art. If asked to describe the perfect family seeking a caregiver from the Nanny Agency in Tacoma, WA like me, I would hope they would be loving, caring, friendly, honest and flexible.”

“Shawna has been working with my family as a live-out nanny for the past six months. Her responsibilities have included focusing on supervising our 6-year year-old boy, our 3 year-old girl, and our infant son. Generally, either I or my husband are in the house while Shawna has been here, but she has had plenty of solo time with one, two, or all three kids at various points. In addition to childcare, Shawna makes simple meals, plays with the children, cares for the baby (diaper changes, bottle feeding, naps, baths, dressing, etc.), does dishes, does laundry, and straightens around the house. Shawna has been honest, extremely flexible and reliable, dependable, punctual, flexible, and professional. She often goes above and beyond what we have asked of her by doing chores around that are outside her stated duties such as vacuuming, changing sheets, or cleaning bathrooms. On a number of occasions, she or has offered to come early and/or stay late when if I need extra help for activities or bedtime. At one point, I needed to take a sudden trip out of town to visit my sick grandfather and my husband had to work. Shawna did not hesitate to come keep the children on short notice and for an almost 12 -hour day so that I could be with my family. I am so grateful that she helped us out for this trip and I love having her with us every day. She has always been willing and happy to assist in whatever way she can. Shawna is warm and engaging with our children. She loves playing games and is so much fun for my children. I can tell that Shawna cares about them and truly enjoys spending time with them. Shawna is a gem and has been fantastic with my family, I am certain that Shawna will a valuable attribute wherever she lands in her next job. Shawna has innumerable skills and traits: patience, flexibility, lots of energy, reliability, friendliness, and compassion. I highly recommend her from the Nanny Agency in Tacoma, WA for any position that involves working closely with children.”

“I am writing to express my endorsement for Shawna. I have had dealings with Shawna for the past 3 years. Shawna has unselfishly volunteered her time to coach in our softball league in a variety of age groups. Her knowledge and passion for the game has made her a great asset to me and the league as a whole. The players respect and respond to her in a great way and improve their skills under her expert tutelage. She has been a great role model and leader for all the players that have had the privilege to learn and develop under her coaching. It is my opinion that she will be a great addition to the Nanny Agency in Tacoma, WA.”

“I met Shawna about 4 years ago, when my son was entering his pre-K year at the Child Development Center. She was an assistant teacher in this classroom and actively working on her college degree in early childhood education. I first heard about Shawna from my son. He would speak constantly about her at home with a huge smile on his face. When we arrived at school in the morning, he would hide behind me with that same goofy grin, sneaking past her classroom until he could peek at her from behind the door. He was only 4, and I had never seen him act this way before-he was a boy in love. But once he entered her direct care, I finally understood why he loved her. Shawna showered the children with encouragement and praise at every opportunity. She was quick to celebrate good behavior and kind actions and often made a big show of sharing this information with parents at pick-up to help reinforce continued progress. He had always struggled with behavior and discipline issues in the past, but as he spent more time with Shawna, he began to show more self-discipline at controlling his emotions and trying harder for a good report each day. I believe her praise was very motivating for him and he worked hard for that high five at the end of the day. At the same time, Shawna was a strong, steady force when it came to rules and discipline. My son’s class was full of energetic, sometimes aggressive boys. She had high behavior standards, because she knew the children were capable of respect, kindness and self-control. When a child crossed the line, she immediately got down on their level and spoke to them directly, stating their transgression, implementing a consequence where necessary, but always giving them a chance to earn back their privilege and her good favor. One summer, shortly before my son was to leave the school for good and begin kindergarten, I had the pleasure of acting as a chaperone on a class trip. As a parent, the day was a little harrowing and I was slightly overwhelmed, but Shawna was ready. As soon as the children were done eating, she immediately mobilized them into games of Duck Duck Goose and Follow the Leader, changing tactics and using positive distraction at the slightest hint of unrest. I stood back watching with the other teachers, all of us commenting on what a natural she was with the children and how much confidence she had gained over the course of her tenure at the school. That leadership has only improved over the past year as Shawna earned the chance to lead her own pre-K classroom. My 3-year-old daughter has already been counting down the days until she can be in the "big girl classroom with the big kid teacher." I believe that Shawna should be strongly considered from the Nanny Agency in Tacoma, WA and that your family would benefit greatly from her high energy, genuine passion and fresh perspective on early childhood education.”

“I met Shawna from the Nanny Agency in Tacoma, WA over 5 years ago when I became one of her supervisors. I loved Shawna's charisma and patience with the children. You could tell that working with children was Shawna's passion. While Shawna worked for the summer camp program which included taking children to the pool, field trips and helping the teacher with the lesson plans. Shawna ran our camp for a summer or two when our teacher was on maternity leave. Shawna would also help us out on her school breaks covering teacher’s vacations and days off and then she became the Head Teacher of one of our Pre K Classrooms. She would complete the lessons that the teachers planned. Some of her other duties throughout her time with us included; changing diapers, covering planning time for the teachers and planning for her own classroom using the Early Learning Standards. Shawna was a pleasure to work with. She always had a smile on her face.”

“It is my pleasure to recommend Shawna from the Nanny Agency in Tacoma, WA. She has been caring for my twin 5year-old daughters as an assistant teacher for the first 4 years, their lead teacher for Pre-K and occasional caregiver as well. Shawna is cheerful, caring and affectionate. She is also well-versed in child development, both due to her university studies and a natural affinity toward children. She relates to our daughters in such a kind way, always guiding the girls in the right direction. Shawna knows how to structure time well, but is also flexible. She mixes fun with education as much as possible. We feel fortunate to have had Shawna care for and teach our girls. We are convinced that our girls owe much of their positive development to her presence.”
