Bio & Resume
My name is Miss Brandi, and I am a Traditional Catholic. I currently attend a TLM (Edmonds, WA), lead The Healing Rosary Ministry (online),and direct Rosarium Domus (Rosary House for laity in Holy living in Steubenville, Ohio).
I have worked with infants and children for many years and realized that it would be lovely to begin working from my cozy little home in Bellevue. I live quite close to some of the most amazing parks imaginable.
I value health and wellness from spiritual, physical, cognitive and emotional perspectives. I am here to bond with and teach the whole child. We cannot separate the body from the spirit, so it is important to include God in all that we do.
Our world is filled with choices, and I am here to present Godly choices to little ones to nurture them to a holy life. We will learn our ABCs and 123s while learning how to reach our eternal destination through holy stories, art, gross motor, sensory and dramatic play. Play is children's work. Developing a Holy imagination is key to protecting a child's growth and virtue.
Thank you for taking the time to learn about my perspective and vocational experience as an early childhood educator and caregiver. Contact me if you have any questions or would like to schedule an interview for future care for your child. My email is BrandiNanny@Gmail.com. Blessings in Jesus!
