Welcome! Thank you for taking the time to research quality childcare for your family. My name is Noelia O'Leary, everyone calls me Nelly. I am a mother to 4 energetic children. I was a stay-at-home mom for several years to my now, school age children and returned to the work force for five years. I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Health Science with a concentration in Physical Therapy and follow regulatory continuing education conferences/courses in Early Childhood Education and Childcare as set forth by New York State. I've successfully completed and currently implementing the NYS Pyramid Model training focusing on social and emotional development of young children and currently studying for the Child Development Associate.
After returning to the work force, I realized there was nothing as rewarding as educating my own children and encouraging their growth and development day after day. Once my son was born, I knew I wanted to afford him the same attention and care while still being able to provide for my family. Now, I offer that same loving care to families who prefer safe and nurturing Family Childcare. Thank you for considering Nelly's Nest for your childcare needs.
