Hi, my name is Danielle Podlesny. I started Munchkin Minders because of my love for children.
While on vacation in Hawaii with my family in 2005, I used a sitter service for my two boys. From that experience, I decided to create a similar service in my home town, but make it “better”. I wanted to provide high quality sitters and nannies, positive and attentive customer service and add all those little extras that make a big difference. That is when the idea of Munchkin Minders began.
I grew up babysitting for my two brothers, two sisters and the neighborhood children. In my 20s I became a nanny for two families while going to college. I loved those children as my own and still keep in touch with the families. Now, as a mother of two boys and a previous nanny, I use that experience to create a service that is custom fit for families, sitters and nannies alike.
My boys are now almost grown. Curren (now 19) is a very sweet natured budding photographer who loves sports cars and technology and has mechanical mind, and Zane (now 17) who very is intelligent loves botany, science, music and is full of life with a great wit. Being a mom is all that I dreamed it would be and more. I LOVE being a mom!
As a mom, I wanted to create a place where families like mine, could go to find the kind of nanny I was. At Munchkin Minders we do just that! We have a great team of loving nannies and sitters that are ready and waiting to take care of your family’s childcare needs.
