"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!"
 
 

Meredith's experience as a Snohomish County After School Nanny allows her to provide the exceptional care our families deserve!


“I believe children need positive, consistent role models in their lives and I strive to be just that. I have a Bachelor’s degree in elementary education. I am certified to teach kindergarten through 6th grades. I am also certified to teach in private schools with the ages of Nursery through Kindergarten. I minored in music, which, alongside teaching and helping children grow, is my passion. I love to sing and perform. I can play a few instruments, the flute being my best! I love to help children use the arts as a means of expression and discovery. I would love to be that positive role model in a child’s life as I continue my education. I see no better way to spend my free time than helping a child grow emotionally, physically, and mentally. If I was asked to describe in one sentence the reason I have chosen to be in the Nanny profession over any other because I can have the opportunity to teach and help children on a one on one basis, and there is nothing I’d want more. I have also coached youth sport teams, including volleyball and softball. I am extremely passionate about working with children and I know I will make a lifelong career of it! I have been serving in some form of childcare experience for over 8 years and can honestly say I LOVE what I do! I feel the children are indescribable, each unique in so many ways! Children are extremely smart and learn so quickly. They are honest. They speak their minds. Children are teachers. They have taught me many things over the years, the one lesson I hold most dearly is to enjoy life, especially the little things. My favorite memories with children and students are those that turn into laugh-fests, those moments that remind us that laughing keeps us young! Children are friends and role models. Children are trusting, loving and the bond that grows between an adult and a child is something that should never be taken for granted. Children are unique, and they remind me constantly that there is nothing better to be! My goal as a Snohomish County After School Nanny is to be a positive role model in not only the lives of children, but in the life of a family. I strive to be the best person I can be and hope to work with a family that also has this self-motivation to help others. I am willing to do housekeeping at the family’s requests that include cooking, cleaning, laundry, anything! If I had to describe myself in five adjectives I would say that I am caring, creative, trustworthy, silly, and smart. Activities that I would like to incorporate in the daily plan for the family I care for would include reading, learning, and outdoor activities. I am very athletic and would love to work with a family that has children involved in sports or other extra activities. I love to do arts and crafts. My favorite part of teaching is creating child made items for parents and families. If asked to describe the perfect family seeking a Nanny like me I would hope they would be a lot like me, outgoing and happy! I would hope they are loving and kind. I would love to work with an active family.”

“Meredith worked as our Pre-K Head Teacher, first with our 4 year olds and then with our 5 year olds. In her position, Meredith provided weekly lesson plans that were not only developmentally appropriate for the age group she worked with, but creative and challenging. She was constantly including special activities and events in her lessons, which made learning fun for the children. Meredith's exceptional teaching abilities are evident in the immense progress of the children she worked with over the past two years. Meredith provided excellent staff- child interactions each and every day and had great relationships with both the parents and the other staff members in the building. I recommend Meredith for any position as a Snohomish County After School Nanny with children of any age.

“Meredith was my daughter's pre-K and pre-K2 teacher and has also watched my daughter while I worked or needed to be away from home. On the outside - Meredith is a very "put together" young woman, who really exudes confidence. On the inside, she is just as wonderful. The way she cares about children is amazing. She really takes them under her wing to provide them the best education and guidance they need. My daughter loves "Miss Meredith" and I know that the other children and parent's felt the same way. She is very smart and loves to teach. Even when we are out somewhere, she continues to teach my daughter how to do something. Her patience is never ending. She can sit and go over the same thing for periods of time until the child understands - changing up her approach as needed. I would recommend Meredith for any childcare position. Any family would be fortunate to have the opportunity to have Meredith as a Snohomish County After School Nanny. You will feel safe and calm being outside of your home knowing that Meredith is caring for your "babies.”

“Miss Meredith taught my daughter for two years beginning at age four. Prior to my daughter's time in Miss Meredith’s classroom, I did not have a clear understanding of what a preschool teacher could do for my child. I merely had expectations that my daughter would be provided a broad and age-appropriate education. Parents hope for amazing instructors for their children. They hope the teachers are creative, patient, dedicated, and energetic and will treat their children with a uniqueness that is due to them. Miss Meredith showed me exactly what kind of teacher my daughter could have. There is so much more than dedication; there is real caring. There is so much more than creativity; there is ingenuity. There is more than patience; there is understanding. There is more than energy; there is true excitement. Meredith worked tirelessly throughout her hours at work, and undoubtedly at home, to make sure that every student was provided the most unique and fulfilling experience. I felt as though my daughter was the only child she was teaching, and I know the other parents felt similarly. My daughter's quarterly report cards provided excellent insight into her personal growth and included specific recommendations for ways we could compliment her education at home. Miss Meredith would take unplanned time out of her day to discuss any concern I may have about my daughter. She treated all of our conversations with sensitivity and professionalism. The combination appears effortless from her. In short, she redefined my expectations of a teacher. My daughter moving forward into Kindergarten, and into a new teacher's classroom, is bitter sweet. The bitterness comes from the fact that Miss Meredith educated my daughter with such color and love that I can only hope the same attention is given by my child's new teacher. The sweetness knows that Miss Meredith has more than prepared my child for a life full of positive learning and exploration. Any child taught by Meredith will not only grow exponentially in textbook knowledge, they will achieve new heights as budding well-rounded adolescents. Self-confidence and self-esteem will naturally grow from this gift. I know her best years of fostering the education of our children as a Snohomish County After School Nanny, and, ultimately, our future adults, have yet to come.”
