The INA Nanny of the Year™ (NOTY™) award is presented annually by the International Nanny Association (INA) to recognize the personal achievements of a working nanny. INA’s NOTY™ represents a positive role model for our industry and association. We are excited to introduce you to our five 2021 INA Nanny of the Year™ Nominees over the next few days. Today, we would like you to meet Erin Jones of Denver, Colorado.
Erin is an intuitive, compassionate, and creative domestic professional with over 30 years of experience. She prides herself on her intrinsic qualities of consistency, cognition, and reliability. Her care for children and families is holistic and nurturing. Erin models open communication and transparency and seeks out those who value her expertise. She provides her families with timely and developmentally appropriate information and uses a team approach to create well-rounded decisions.
Both calm and confident under pressure, Erin uses her wisdom to assess and manage the emotional and physical well-being of children in her care. She has handled the unprecedented challenges of the pandemic with grace by continuing to provide safe socialization and educational opportunities. Finding continued education to be invaluable, Erin stays up to date with current innovations. Erin is a true professional and believes that her calling is to nurture and care for children.
Erin’s reference had this to say about her: “She is a professional caregiver, not just a professional and not just a caregiver, but both. She approaches everything about being a nanny as a true professional in the field, calling meetings before big transitions, strategizing as a parent/nanny team, preparing with articles and research, and accommodating to my needs as well. Now, add “caregiver” to “professional” and it’s the perfect balance.”
