Little Munchkins - Affaya Family Home Daycare


About me  

My name is Colette. I am a fully trained and qualified British nanny with over 19 years of experience. I trained in England for the Btec National Diploma in Nursery Nursing.

I moved to the US in September 2001. I lived and worked as a nanny in New York City. The last family I worked for in Manhatten were a wonderful family and was very sad to leave them.

Myself and my husband moved to the Jacksonville area in June 2006. We love the area and thoroughly enjoy all the things it has to offer.

I have cared for children of all ages. I am CPR/First Aid certified


I am a daycare which is a family home setting. I am not trying to be a large daycare facility where there are so many children that your child will be neglected!
The daycare setting is more of a family situation. More of a loving atmosphere!

 I love to interact with children and think that activities & crafts are needed for a child’s development. I also think children benefit from time spent with other children and learn a lot faster. Children love structure and the opportunity to be creative.
