After 36 years of caring for people in the medical field, you can be assured that your children and family will be professionally cared for in a warm, non-judgmental, confidential way that will meet your family's individual needs. Diversity in families and children are welcome. A LGBT friendly business.
Short notice/same day child care in Sedona or Flagstaff may be available. Please call me at home as well as my cell phone if you want to reach me. As a resident of Oak Creek Canyon, cell coverage is minimal where I live.
The Sedona Nanny can be booked for as little as 3 hours. I'll arrive at
your hotel/resort with age appropriate, fun learning activities, books, arts & crafts, Playdough, and other fun indoor/outdoor games. Most of my play activities involve evaluating and improving fine and gross motorskills. We may go on a nature walk around the resort or learn to play whiffle/kick ball.
For infection control reasons, Playdough and other toys may be left with your child. All other toys and equipment are sanitized using a 4 step method recommended by the CDC. If you child has a fever, runny nose or is sick, let me know ahead of time so I can bring child friendly activities and games that can be easily cleaned or left with your child. However, if your baby or child is acutely ill, you will need to cancel child care services. The Sedona Nanny is switching over to scheduling one family a day to minimize contact between children and babies. For infection control reasons, the Sedona Nanny does not carry plush or soft toys. The Sedona Nanny can also arrange a box of of carefully selected new toys and activities to be delivered to your resort.
The Sedona Nanny prefers the TV, laptops and other electronic devices are turned off after she arrives unless parents give prior permission. Sometimes children are tired from a long vacation day from lots of time in the pool, combined with an altitude/time zone change, and a quiet afternoon or evening watching a child friendly movie can be arranged.
