What Happened to all the Irish Nannies in the New York Metropolitan Area?

We were proud to take part and be a sponsor of "National Nanny Training Day" in NYC on April 30, 2012. We connected with old friends, met some wonderful nannies and had a great time. Orla O'Sullivan, a writer for the Irish Echo, reported on the event.

Mellisa Peckham, of Wee Care Nanny Agency was interviewed for the article. Read the article here

I hope you enjoy it.
