Hello! My name is Elysha Woelbing & I was born & raised right here in the beautiful Sonoma County! I changed my first diaper at age 7 and started babysitting at the age of 9 (for a 9 month old baby) & have been caring for children ever since! My entire adult life has been spent caring for children in numerous childcare settings! Best Of The Bunch Childcare is provided by Sonoma County's Elite Events & Vacation Nanny! As a Childcare Professional & a lifetime resident of Sonoma County (apart from 3 years), I have come to realize that there is a great need for EXCEPTIONAL childcare for tourists & those attending special events, who want to enjoy Sonoma County, while knowing that their child or children are not just "being cared for" but being cared for with the utmost of experience & love! I have 19 years of Professional Experience as a Preschool Teacher, Childcare Assistant Director (ages 6 weeks-elementary age), After-School Teacher, Activities Director (at a 5 star resort in Guam), Nanny (ages newborn-teenage years), Camp Counselor (at multiple camps) & Soccer Coach.
I also have an ADDITIONAL 9 years of Babysitting Experience, making a combined 28 years of Child Care Experience! I was a Live-In Nanny in Greenwich, CT-New York City & San Francisco. I have been a Live-Out Nanny for various families in Sonoma County! The last family that I nanny'd for, I was with for 5 years & still remain close to! I have obtained my Child Development Site Supervisor Permit from the CA Commission on Teacher Credentialing (which also provides updated background checks), Associate Teacher Certificate, Associate of Arts degree, 33 Units in Child Development, Units in Psychology & Sociology as well as attended multiple Child Development and Leadership Conferences. I am Infant/Child/Adult CPR & First Aid Certified and have my TDAP, CA Fingerprint (Background Check) & TB Clearances, a Clean DMV Driving Record, a Valid CA Driver's License & Insured Transportation.
I am a member of NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children) to maintain updated on the most current research & news in Child Development. I have experience with ages newborn through the teenage years and possess the ability to plan and implement age appropriate activities & curriculum. I strongly believe that my hard work, dedication, fun-loving heart, humor, flexibility, creativity and enthusiasm help promote a positive environment. Beside having an education in Child Development, I have a genuine love for children & ample experience with infants and beyond. I have cared for multiple sets of twins & multiple children (4 in a family environment & 12 in a child care setting). I am NOT your "everyday babysitter", I'm a highly experienced & qualified Child Development Professional. You can attend your special event, knowing that you can relax & enjoy your time, while your child/ren are in a safe, fun & happy environment with an attentive, qualified & loving nanny! I will come to your hotel, vacation home or special event & not only provide a safe & nurturing environment but one that is exciting, fun & age appropriate for your child or children!
My company is based on the belief that my customers' needs are of the utmost importance. I am committed to meeting those needs of both the children & the parents. I will do whatever I can, to ensure that you and your family have a fairy tale memory of your special time here in Sonoma County! As a result, a high percentage of my business is from repeat customers and referrals. I also have MANY letters of recommendation & Referrals upon request!
I welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and deliver you the best service in the events & vacation childcare industry.
Wishing You Sunshine & Smiles,
Below are pictures that I hold VERY dear to my heart of the very First 3 families that I babysat for and my very first nanny position in Greenwich, Connecticut (where I was a live-in nanny)!!!!! :-D
