FOUNDER'S MESSAGE

Hi Everyone,  

I established Babysitters of Boulder in 2018 with a mission to support kind care for children, a living wage, and parents' peace of mind. Our agency mission includes strong support for busy parents, standing for equity and inclusion, and advocating for the childcare profession.

 

I began nannying in 2005 while completing my degree at the University of New Mexico at Albuquerque. Since then, I have devoted thousands of hours to caring for children of all ages from newborn to teen, including twin infants and toddlers. I have cared for children with a variety of unique needs including preemie, torticollis, hearing loss, speech disorders, diagnoses related to intellectual development (IDDs), autism, preverbal and nonverbal children using infant/pediatric sign language. 

I loved my work and for years I was frequently approached by parents asking where they could find someone like me. I realized that it's hard for families to meet trustworthy caregivers on their own. Fellow sitters & nannies also shared with me that it is difficult to find respectful work environments, dependable wages and benefits. Families & caregivers, two pieces of the same puzzle. Today, I serve both groups. 

My work is diligently vetting each caregiver who joins us, fostering respect for the caregiving profession, and continuously refining our service to families. I seek out caregivers that parents can depend on and trust, and I strive to ensure that caregivers have a positive experience and a dependable income. Thank you so much for entrusting us with care of your children or joining our group as a sitter or nanny. Building this local network of parents and caregivers means a lot to me. 

Sincerely,

Genna Hackley  

Founder & Group Manager, Babysitters Of Boulder LLC
