Coaching
 

Keystone Nannies is here for parents in more than matching with employees. If you find your family is struggling, we can help guide you back to stability, be it with implementing schedules and routines or assistance with discipline practices. We also offer to help nannies not only to enhance the working relationship with the employer, but also with their charges. This service includes being in your home to observe and help in areas that might be a struggle. Rachael offers this in-person or via Zoom.
