I was born and raised in South Africa. I have traveled and lived all over the world. I have one daughter and two grandchildren living in Los Angeles. I raise orchids as a hobby.
I love babies. Watching their curious minds develop, is a passion of mine, that is hard to describe in words.
I have been a full time live-in nanny for eleven years, and they have been some of the best years of my life.
Hester's childcare philosophy:
I believe in showing love and compassion to all children. Creating a safe and fun environment for them to thrive in and reach their developmental milestones, is what I try to achieve on a daily basis, as a nanny.

What did you find most rewarding?
I'm a very experienced nanny when it comes to taking care of newborns and infants - having that strong connections with the babies, stimulating them, seeing them develop and constantly working with them to that end.
