About our Nannies

Maui Nanny BabysittersOur nannies bring Aloha and fun in their “nanny bags” with age appropriate indoor and outdoor activities including arts, crafts, sporting games, toys, and books, often with a Hawaiian theme.

All nannies are Infant/Child CPR and First Aid certified, have passed a criminal background check, and have experience working in the child care community.

~ If desired, and with your permission, nannies can take children swimming or to play at the beach.

~ Experience is important to us and we match your needs with a particular nanny’s skills and talents.

~ We have infant specialists, special needs, and elderly care providers.

Christine Taylor

Maui Nanny Connection’s Christine Taylor

My name is Christine Taylor and I came from England to beautiful Maui many years ago. I married and raised my children here and have been an active participant in Hawaii’s early childhood community. My education relating to children began in the English college system including English nanny qualifications (NNEB) and Montessori certification. I worked in group children’s homes and I was a nanny for three years for a celebrity family in England.

In Hawaii I began by teaching child-birth education classes and working in preschools. I have continued my education by attending many classes offered by the University of Hawaii system. I have been a preschool director and the island coordinator of a state-wide, non profit child care resource and referral agency before I became a business owner. The interests of families and young children have always been my passion and I have been a vocal advocate relating to childcare issues statewide and at a national level.

I am currently a member of University of Hawaii-Maui College Human Services Committee & Maui’s Good Beginnings Community Council.

Maui Nanny Connection’s Courtney Reyes

The role of a nanny is very near and dear to my heart. I worked as a private nanny for many years in Colorado while studying Early Childhood Education at Front Range Community College and Psychology at The University of Colorado, Boulder. I am a member of PATCH (People Attentive to the needs of Children) and the NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children) along with several other organizations who advise and support the Working Mother and our early child childhood community.

I started with The Nanny Connection in 2005 as a full time nanny before transitioning into the office. In 2009 I took over the day to day operations and in 2010 Christine and I formed our business partnership. Now as a mother, I sincerely value the magnitude a child care provider plays in the lives of a family. It truly takes a village and I am honored and inspired as a co-owner with Christine by our one of a kind family—The Nanny Connection, Inc. Our focus will never shift away from what is most important to us all, the children our nannies provide care for and the families who use our service.
