Nanny and Babysitting Services

The Case For Play

The Case For Play is our Signature Service!
Your Professional Babysitter will come armed with award winning goodies that offer open ended explorations that will keep your youngest to oldest stimulated. We aim to engage children in playful learning experiences at all developmental stages from infancy to adolescence.  You tell us your child's interests, we then use our creative talents and design a play date that will (Ahem!) have your children begging for more. Nothing like enjoying a dinner, or perhaps a business meeting knowing your kiddos are in good safe hands while being entertained. The Case for Play is our way of showing our clients that we are Professional Babysitters and we go beyond the stereotypes of what babysitting may be preconceived to be, or any negative experiences you have had with past babysitters, and help you reimagine our Professional Babysitters as Steminist.

 The fee for this service is $12.50/hr. There is a two hour minimum requirement, and also an additional $1.00 per child if there is more than one.

Keeping the Standards High for In Home Childcare

Dear Friends,
I have met a lot of interesting people as the owner of a Nanny Agency. I also have read some disturbing ads online looking for a nanny, or from the nanny looking for a job. If you have decided on In Home Childcare then you have to get in research mode. You will have interviews to do and background checks to perform, etc. There is a lot you must do to make sure you are finding the nanny that your family really needs.
There are many people who would love to be your nanny depending on the money. Do not hire anyone because they are low balling. It is not a good sign of one's knowledge or character when one is low balling at all and plus there are people who are experienced, professional, passionate, have integrity and commitment to quality childcare.  If you can not afford to pay the nanny at least the going hourly rate in your area then do not choose In Home Childcare. I mean do you really want to pay someone who isn't following IRS Guidelines?! This trait is really n…

Crafternoon STEAM Sessions with The Geeky Nanny: 5 Maker Activities to Get this Party Started

I have really been busy behind the scenes getting our Studio ready for childcare licensing approval. It is such an exciting adventure as we prepare to expand our services. 

The Studio resides in my home that was previously licensed by the State of Michigan for 10 years. It is located in a separate area from living quarters and on a separate floor, with a designated entrance for clients only. In September of 2013 I had decided that I wanted to try working with children outside of my home and decided not to renew my license again. Through this journey I discovered that I loved nannying and started the agency. Our goals for applying for childcare licensing through the State of Michigan is to be able to offer school aged drop-in programs, and a preschool program in my home beyond the calendar days that one may operate such activity without a State of Michigan issued license. We also want our programs to be accredited by the NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children). …

We Found Our Nanny! Now What?

Congratulations on finding the best nanny to match your family's needs, that was no small feat! Your almost at the finish line for completing the hiring process, there are just a few more steps you need to take to make this new relationship a success for all. I know everyone is eager to begin the bonding process between the nanny and the children, which is definitely something worth looking forward to, but we have to make sure that our business relationship with our nanny is rock solid too.

One of the first steps you can take after you have found your nanny that will foster respect, accountability and a positive relationship between you and the nanny is to create a Family Nanny Handbook. This handbook can be used as a guide, and will help to prevent any future misunderstandings. Include the nanny's job responsibilities and expectations, your parenting philosophy, how to discipline your children and emergency procedures with the emergency contact information. Make sure to addre…
