Provider, B.A. Elementary Education
I hold a B.A. in Elementary Education from a program in Boulder and I also hold a degree in Elementary Education from the University of Hawaii. My experience with children includes: six years of experience as a nanny and au pair (2014 to 2020), one semester as a home school pod teacher during 2020, an internship with a children's outdoor education group in Nederland, and most recently a Waldorf Kindergarten teacher. I have cared for all ages including young infants.
I have interest in full time nanny positions, and I can offer date night and occasional weekend bookings. I am a morning person and I am always interested in bookings with an early start too.
I hope to incorporate my early childhood education training into my work as a nanny. I am passionate about nurturing children's minds, creativity and curiosity. I believe in well-rounded, hands-on and experiential learning for children, connecting with nature and getting kids outdoors. Exploration and hands-on activities are important to a child's development. Children are filled with an abundance of gifts and as a caregiver and educator it is my job to bring those gifts to light, and to help children to develop a lifelong love of learning and exploration.
Fun facts about me...I grew up in Illinois, moving to a fabulous ski town in Colorado where I graduated high school and got to engage in lots of outdoor activities including hiking and snowboarding. I played college soccer on scholarship with the University of Hawaii. I have a big athletic background and find joy in all sports and lots of movement. Today I find myself biking, kayaking, hiking, and going on backpacking trips. In the winter months I enjoy snowshoeing and snowboarding as well as bundling up and hiking with my dog! I have a big passion for animals and hike around 6 miles a day with my puppy. I enjoy live music, reading, and crafting in my free time.
WHAT PARENTS SAY
“Hannah was our nanny for one school year when my daughter was in second grade and my son was in fourth grade. Hannah was THE BEST nanny we ever had. The kids loved her as did my husband and I. If we still needed someone we’d hire her back in a second. She is wonderful.” - Renee W.
"Hannah is excellent and very responsible. My boys adored her and she had her work cut out for her with homeschooling last year and all the changes that came along with last year (2020). She did very well with both my boys' ages (kindergarten and 4th grade) and their very different personalities. Highly recommend her!" - Lindsay O.
