My personalized childcare coaching sessions are for parents who want to find childcare on their own with expert guidance. I offer in person coaching sessions in the NYC metro area and video sessions across the USA.
Identifying your long-term childcare needs, parenting philosophies and overall wishlist for your household, child's care and education.
Help you evaluate the benefits and challenges of daycares, nannies, nanny sharing and au pairs and how they apply to your family- cost, market standards, types of nanny options available, local trends and advice for making your decision.
Step-by-step guidance and tools on the best practices to find, hire and maintain a healthy, lasting employment relationship with quality nanny or nanny share.
How Does Childcare Coaching Work?
With my coaching, you will receive the information, training and support you need to confidently find, hire and maintain a great daycare, nanny or nanny-share for your child without the additional costs of a placement agency.
Holly gets to know YOU and your family
My personalized childcare coaching sessions do not have a strict roadmap but rather focus on the topics that make sense to your specific childcare situation, interest and questions. I understand that each family has different needs, wants, budget, personality, stressors, and child raising philosophies. Because of this, I emphasize the importance of getting to know your unique family to guide you on the childcare path that is best suited for you.
Daycare vs nanny comparison
The sessions are often heavy on nanny information, but that is not because I am trying to push you or your family towards nanny care. In fact, I do not believe nanny care is the best form of care for every family! Daycares have set policies and procedures set by their State’s inspection office and the individual centers, so in speaking of daycares we discuss: the group care elements; information on your state’s requirements; resources to obtain past inspection reports; an outline of questions/consideration for touring centers; and basics of child development as it pertains to the daycare structure. On the other hand, nanny care is a more customized and unregulated form of childcare so it is important to understand and weigh this option in closer detail as it requires you to be not just the parent but also the employer who interviews, hires and manages the nanny as your employee.
