"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!"
 
 

Marcia chooses to be a Sammamish Household Manager because she loves giving our families the attention they deserve!


“I am very nurturing and positive. I spend most of my free time with my children. My goal is to provide the best quality of life for my children. I have five wonderful children who are my world. I have spent many years being a big part of child development programs; I want to have a more personal relationship with a child and their family to help with the best possible development mentally and physically. If I was asked to describe in one sentence the reason I have chosen to be in the nanny profession over any other, it would have to be because I enjoy being a part of a child’s development so they can be the best person they can be. I have been serving in childcare for over twenty years and can honestly say I love what I do! I feel the children are the most important part of life, their development is critical for life itself. My goal as a Sammamish Household Manager is to provide a safe, caring, and educational environment that will let them grow to their fullest potential. I am willing to do housekeeping including light dusting, laundry and dishes. If I had to describe myself in five adjectives I would say that I am positive, loving, energetic, honest, and caring. Activities that I would like to incorporate in the daily plan for the family I care for would include reading, music, educational activities, teaching Spanish, motor skill activities and so much more. If asked to describe the perfect family seeking a nanny like me I would hope they would be positive and caring.”

“Marcia was my son's teacher in the "Twos" classroom and is currently my daughter's teacher also in that same room at the daycare. Marcia is one of the most loving, caring, supportive, and encouraging teachers I have ever met. She has a gentle warmth about her and the children adore her. This is definitely not just a job for Marcia-she is passionate about the children and about teaching them and watching them grow! I am amazed with the patience she demonstrates with all of them and being a teacher in the "Twos" room is not easy, for sure! In fact, I have always said that this room is probably the most difficult room for any teacher-the infants sleep a lot and by age 3, the children are potty trained and much more independent. I'd like to share a few relevant examples of my interactions with Marcia. My son, Charlie, was new to daycare and I remember him being extremely upset when I left for work. He screamed and cried A LOT but never for one second did she lose patience. She just rocked him gently and soothed him, all while I watched behind the glass. I just knew he was in loving care with Marcia and sure enough he was happy and excited when I picked him up in the afternoon. Another example relates to my daughter, Courtney. Courtney is very strong willed and doesn't do anything she doesn't want to do. A joke in my family is that Courtney will not let anyone (including me!) put anything in her hair-no bows, no barrettes, no pony tail, etc. I gave up! One afternoon, I walked in to pick up Courtney and she was all smiles with her hair in BOTH a pony tail and barrettes. Only Marcia can do her hair. Months later, she tolerates me doing a pony tail here and there, but I suspect she'd rather have Marcia do it! I would recommend Marcia for any Sammamish Household Manager position, anywhere. You won't find a more dedicated, and loving professional.”

“I simply cannot say enough about Marcia and what she has meant to our children and our entire family for the past six years. My children, now ages 7 and 4, have grown up with her at daycare. She devotes her full attention to each child and gives each what he or she individually needs. Marcia has done so much more than merely supervise our children. She's cared for them both and they absolutely adore her. Today, my youngest son ran up to her in the parking lot and gave her the biggest hug and kiss on the cheek. That is just one example of the strong bonds she has built with our children. Unfortunately, we recently moved and deeply regret that we are losing Marcia as our children's caregiver. I am confident that she will continue to provide excellent service as a Sammamish Household Manager wherever she ends up. I know that Marcia and any child would create the strong relationship as much as mine have and that you would never be disappointed in her services.”

“Marcia has been the teacher of my daughter for over a year. She has been a wonderful teacher. My daughter considers her a friend for many reasons. Marcia listens to her and acknowledges her ideas and stories. She helps her to understand her role in the classroom. She started off as one of the younger children and now she is one of the old children. As time passes, she is expected to act differently and mature and Marcia has been very instructive and understanding during that process. She has helped to potty train my daughter. We both discussed what the norm for the classroom was and what our plans were at home, between the two we worked it out, so it was a successful and painless experience. It has always been a great feeling to drop my daughter off at daycare knowing she wanted to be there, she was well taken care of, and she was learning. My daughter is uninterested in some of the learning activities. Marcia has always modified the lesson just enough, within the small group, to get her to engage as much as possible without any detriment to the other children. I have always appreciated the love and attention and patience she shows my daughter and the children in the room. I will be very sad to see her go but I know she will be a great asset as a Sammamish Household Manager to any family she works for.”

“Marcia worked with both of my children in the Discovery Pre-School program at the daycare. She cared for Emily, now seven and Andrew, now three. Both of my children thrived in Marcia's care. Marcia is extremely talented when it comes to dealing with children. I have seen first-hand how Marcia can recognize and handle every different child's needs. All children are different, obviously, but Marcia seems to always know the best way to handle every situation. I have seen her as loving to all children with no bias towards anyone in particular. Marcia will be a warm, open and genuine Sammamish Household Manager. She always took our concerns seriously and was always engaged in a professional manner.”

“Marcia has taught and cared for both of my sons in her "2 year old" classroom at the daycare. My oldest son began attending daycare about four years ago, and Marcia was one of his first teachers. My younger son is currently in her classroom at daycare. Ms. Marcia (as we all lovingly call her) is a warm, loving and caring person who I trust completely in the care of my sons. She is always there to greet us when I drop off my sons and is such a natural caregiver with all the children (and parents) in her class. I always have so much confidence in how she cares for all the children in her classroom. Marcia is a constant professional, and if there have ever been personal issues occurring, I have never known or been aware. From the moment she walks into the day care, she emits a warm and happy glow. It is very apparent how much love she has for the children in her care. Both of my sons have learned so much by being in her classroom. With both of them, it was while in the care of Ms. Marcia that they both began to really absorb what she was teaching them and blossoming as little students. As such, I highly recommend Ms. Marcia as a Sammamish Household Manager. She would be a tremendous asset to your family, and a great benefit to the children.”

“I have one son, who is now four and one daughter who just turned three. They are both as different as different can be from each other. My son is quiet, shy and often unsure of himself. My daughter is outgoing, strong-willed and often bossy. Marcia worked with them both and treated them both as they needed. She lovingly pushed my son to come out of his shell when he desperately needed that, and she allows my daughter to blossom without allowing her to control the room. It takes a special person to be able to nurture and teach both types of children. I have seen her with her classes over the years and there is no doubt that Marcia treats all of her students as if they were her children. She's simply amazing with them. She talks to them, teaches them, cuddles them, runs after them, and gives them the freedom to develop who they are in a comforting and accepting environment. My son has a speech delay as well as a hearing impairment. I saw him grow and spread his wings in the most wonderful way in Marcia's classroom. She made sure that he was comfortable wearing his hearing aid, made the other children understand they could not play with it and taught him that it was okay to stand up for himself, even at two. As a parent of a child with special needs, I was a nervous wreck about his day-to-day care, but I never left for work worrying about if he was taken care of when he was with Marcia. I will also tell you that I am close with many of the parents in both my children's classes and at some point or another we have all been in the Director's office to either request our children be moved to Marcia's room or to tell the Director what a wonderful teacher and person Marcia is because there was a sense not just with my children, but with all the children, that when you left them they were in good hands. Not just to watch them but to love them and care for them and teach them not just letters and numbers but about love and empathy. It is that, we will all miss if and when she leaves. One letter can never convey the kindness she has given to all of us. See, she is not just our children's teacher; she equally cares for the parents. She is special and kind and there are not enough words or pages to do her justice. I know wherever she ends up being a Sammamish Household Manager, the family will be better for having her. We certainly were.”

“I was experiencing many problems with the care provided to my son last summer in a different classroom. I addressed my concern with the director, and she transitioned Xavier to Marcia's classroom. From the very beginning, my son took to Marcia and her kind voice and compassionate attitude. Every morning when we enter the classroom, she greets us with a warm smile and always makes time to look at whatever he has in his hands and wants to show her, no matter what she is doing or how busy things are around her. Marcia truly cares about the children, and they respond to her. As a parent, I feel confident that Xavier will receive excellent care. When Xavier has an accident or there are activities going on, everything is very well organized, and all of his needs are addressed, even in an environment where there are multiple children and time is limited. In addition to her instinctive and kind nature with children, she is committed to partnering with families to ensure that children in her care have a good experience. This is evident by her wiliness and enthusiasm to assist with a difficult to potty train child. Through cooperation and communication, Xavier is well on his way to mastering potty training and feels proud of his accomplishment. Lastly, I find Marcia to have a wealth of knowledge in child development from her extensive experience working with children. During our parent-teacher meeting, she listened intently to any concerns, addressed my questions and gave me very good insights into how to help Xavier excel in a courteous and respectful way. Marcia will be an intelligent, trustworthy, dependable and hard-working Sammamish Household Manager.”

“I initially met Marcia when my daughter transitioned from the infant room to the toddler’s room at her daycare. I would highly recommend her as a Sammamish Household Manager. As a first-time parent, I was apprehensive and worried about how my daughter was going to do in a new classroom environment. It was Marcia who helped ease our adjustment to our daughter's development and transition. She always gave daily updates on our daughter's day in great detail, was enthusiastic and engaging with our daughter, and truly demonstrated how much she cares and loves our daughter. During the years of knowing Marcia, she has always demonstrated exemplary professionalism and dedication to the needs of our daughter. I truly trust her with the care of our daughter. She is very attentive, reliable, and extremely dedicated to the children she cares for. It is with the greatest esteem that I recommend her for providing top-quality childcare. She demonstrates a genuine passion for working with children, always has a positive attitude, and children are drawn to her caring nature and fun personality. Our daughter always remembers Marcia and runs and hugs her to this day.”
