HOURS AND PRICING

I provide families a 10 hour window of care each day, beginning as early as 7:30am and ending as late as 6:30pm.

My daily rate is $125 per child.


My rate includes healthy snacks and homemade lunches, wet wipes, diaper cream (but not diapers), sunscreen, and the majority of expenses related to our adventures. Breakfast and dinner can also be included at an extra cost. Classes - for example music/dance/gymnastics - are not covered by my fee and would be discussed and approved with parents before I schedule and book these programs on your behalf. Unfortunately, sibling rates are not available, nor do my rates reduce as children get older as my caregiver-to-child ratio remains the same.

While my daily rate reflects the premium nature of my care, for a family with one child it should still offer some savings over a traditional nanny. Additionally, the children within my care are my entire focus during our time together and I provide significant extra value in the outings we undertake. I never hesitate to spend additional money on the children when it enriches our days with unique experiences, learning opportunities and memorable moments - it's part of the excellence you pay for.

Pricing: About

What children learn does not follow as an automatic result from what is taught. Rather, it is in large part due to the children's own doing as a consequence of their activities and our resources. The wider the range of possibilities we offer children the more intense will be their motivations and the richer their experiences.

Most striking, in many hunter-gatherer cultures, parents build a relationship with young children that is markedly different than the one we foster here in the U.S. – it's one that's built on cooperation instead of conflict, trust instead of fear, and personalized needs instead of standardized development milestones.
