I absolutely love listening to Lora and Sue!! I have been a nanny for over twenty years and still learn so much from these great ladies!!
My nanny gurus
I cannot overstate how much this podcast has influenced my nanny career. When I found it, I had already been about two years into my nanny journey after 12 years of working in early childhood education in preschool/nursery school settings. I was far from new to the childcare world but brand new to the realm of nannying. This podcast and Sue and Lora really became like my nanny fairy godmothers. There is an episode on absolutely every topic, concern, wonderment, I’ve had in the last couple years. They’ve steered me towards places and resources that have added to my child care philosophy and really made me a better nanny. I cannot praise this podcast or these ladies enough.
This is an amazing resource for nannies! I think so much like Sue it is nice to know I am not alone 😊
