Lisa’s Safe, Happy Little Lambs
Lisa Ann Dumovich has been a professional nanny for more than 10 years, and recently took it upon herself to add entrepreneur to her resume. Enter Lisa’s Little Lambs, a childcare business that she started out of her Honolulu home just last month. Dumovich caters to busy parents, working moms and single dads who need assistance caring for their infants and toddlers.
“My most recent position was as a nanny and assistant for a family in their home. I handled all their household chores, took care of their pets, four children and ran errands,” Dumovich recalls. “In the meantime, I was getting asked by other families to help watch their children - so this business was a natural progression to allow me to offer my services to more than one family at a time.”
This “supernanny” remains dedicated to helping children learn to grow, communicate, problem solve and become aware of their actions in a safe, gentle and effective environment. Dumovich also believes all parents need to feel confident that their child’s caregiver will provide close supervision and positive guidance for their little ones.
“Lisa’s Little Lambs is unique in that I cater to a very small clientele, giving personalized one-on-one attention,” says Dumovich, who is Red Cross certified in child and toddler CPR and first aid.
“Some of my clients have shared stories with me of what they’ve experienced interviewing other daycare providers. Often, they’ve seen multiple babies left in car seats propped in front of a television set. My home does not have a television and I pride myself on having engaging, stimulating activities. It is this reason I limit my clients to only two to three to ensure private, quality care. It’s like having a personal nanny,” she adds.
Dumovich’s childcare services cost $995 per month for full-time care, and she is now offering a special rate of $895 for new clients for the initial month of service. She says she provides individualized, quality care to her clients and will even send parents frequent play-by-play updates via photo-text of what new adventures their keiki are up to.
“What I find most rewarding is nurturing the development of young children and knowing that I am making a difference in a child’s life,” Dumovich says.
