Extraordinary kids flourish with an extraordinary nanny.
"There are certain people you meet in life whom you just recognize as the very best kind of person. Whether they are the most experienced, the kindest, the best-organized, the most reliable, the best teachers, you just know that they are The One. Orchid is one such person." (Letter from Isaac and Benjamin's dad)
My name is Orchid Cavett, and I have been caring for children -- as a mother, teacher, and professional nanny -- for over 26 years.
I am a Portland, Oregon native with deep roots in the Pacific Northwest. (And I'm well acquainted with ways to keep children engaged, active, and learning during the cold, wet months!) I have cared for children of all ages, in multiple configurations, with diverse needs, including newborns, multiples, and children with autism and Down syndrome. I prefer a full-time position but have worked part-time, traveled with families, and taken short-term, local engagements.
Welcome to my website (it is still a work in progress!): please take your time and look around.
