Balia derives from the Italian word Nanny. Coming from an Italian family based out of Naples Italy, I thought this would be the perfect name for our company. Childcare has been the foundation of my life . Through my knowledge from Teaching preschool classes and being a professional nanny for over 15 years and then transitioning into the business world, I have found that teaching, education, and being a nanny go hand in hand. It's important to teach children and build connections with each family as a childcare provider. I personalize each placement to make sure that we are not just looking at a resume, but we are making sure there are connections being formed.
