The Whole Tea
I am a childcare professional offering childcare and educational services for families and local organizations in the greater Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky and surrounding areas. I utilize a childcare model that focuses on child and social skill development while teaching new skills. Certified in First Aid and CPR, I have a dedication to creating safe, inclusive and engaging learning environments for all children.
I am a native of Cincinnati, where even as a child, felt a passion for advocating for children and providing educational assistance. I volunteered my time, mentored students, and organized and promoted fundraisers for the special education department of my local high school.
Upon graduation from high school, I enrolled at Northern Kentucky University, majoring in Early Childhood education to pursue of my dreams of becoming an educator. While at Northern Kentucky University, I founded and implemented an organization entitled “What Makes You Beautiful”, which was geared to raise awareness for individuals with disabilities.
Even though I faced many challenges and life obstacles along my journey to becoming an educator, I did not stop pursuing my dreams in the field of education and childcare. I was employed as a part time sitter, while attending Northern Kentucky University, and completed a volunteer program with AMERICORPS vista, which implemented strategic planning to increase Kindergarten readiness in local area child care centers.
I acquired my first full time nanny share family and through that connection, would later found my own organization, Nanny McTea Sitters LLC, where I began helping families with child care assistance and nanny placements services. Currently, I am well known as “Nanny McTea” in the local community and offers services as a full time nanny, ,nanny placement services and event childcare.
I hope to continue to exhibit a “servant’s heart” as I pursue my aspirations of establishing and operating her own school and childcare center, as a part of my next chapter and contribution in the educational system.
I inspired, motivated, and encouraged caregivers to have fun while increasing the amount of learning while using household products to create a safe, fun, and stimulating learning environment for kids of all ages.
