Oklahoma City's Italian Nanny

About me

 My mission as a Nanny is to provide the best quality childcare experience that helps your child develop physically, socially, and emotionally. 

Being an Italian/American I am able to teach your child to speak Italian upon request.

With 20 years of experience in the childcare field you can be confident of my skills.

My Bio

 Hello. My name is Mary Murray. I was born in Italy on an American Army Base. My mother is a native Italian and my father is American. This combination has given me dual citizenship making me both American and Italian. I still speak and read/write fluently in Italian and have lived in Oklahoma since the fall of 1994. I have been in the childcare field since the summer of 1998 working both in the daycare setting and home setting. My first place of employment was at a daycare center called Sonshine House. It was a Christian daycare that had high childcare standards and that is where I first learned the importance of quality childcare. Since then it has been my goal to provide the best care possible by putting the child's needs first. I love children and truly enjoy watching them learn and grow each day. My promise to you is that I will nurture your child as if he or she were my own. 

My Childcare Philosophy

 I believe that all children deserve love, attention, and nurturing. I believe that a safe environment allows children to explore and grow. I make sure to provide as much hands-on learning experiences as possible because this is how children learn best. This fosters age appropriate development. I love to read to children everyday. I believe that positive reinforcement is important for children to develop self-esteem. Children need an environment that supports free expression and stimulates learning. Most importantly, however, I believe that children need to have fun! I limit screen time so the child has more opportunities to experience the world around them. In addition, I often solicit parent suggestions about activities their children will enjoy.
