Feb 2014

Our nanny is opening an in-home daycare. She worked for us for three years, starting with my first child at 3 months, and with my second that is 19 months younger.

Almaz has a single-level house with a big beautiful backyard. The yard has grass, raised beds with veggies, fruit trees, toys, and a play structure with foam padding. The house is well organized with full size cribs and is very clean. She is also a wonderful cook.

Almaz is a young, energetic, and healthy grandmother, who raised two daughters of her own and has three young grandchildren.

I was working from home while she was with us and so I was able to be a daily witness to how she takes care of the children. She has an easy way with babies and toddlers, getting them to eat and sleep well and on schedule. She plays with them and engages in educational play: motor skills, singing and counting. As someone with decades of experience taking care of children, she is calm and comforting through all the uncomfortable, worrisome or difficult stages of babyhood.

She speaks English, Italian, some Arabic, and her native Eritrean language, all of which she will be able to speak and sing to your little one(s) in.

Please feel free to call or email me if you have other questions. Almaz can be reached at 510-269-0762.
