30 Years of Childhood Education Experience
Elite Nannies of Nashville is a unique nanny referral agency owned and operated by two Early Childhood Education Professionals, Sabrina Washington and Kendra Turner.
Sabrina N. Washington is the founder of Elite Nannies of Nashville. Originally from the coastal city of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Sabrina’s love for children blossomed as early as the age of 16 when she had the special opportunity to engage with young children through a special work program facilitated by her high school. Three years after graduating, Sabrina relocated to Nashville, Tennessee where she broke ground on a rewarding journey toward early childhood education. At the genesis of her career, she earned a coveted position as a preschool teacher at a prestigious private school in Franklin, TN. Any spare time outside of teaching was spent garnering a wealth of experience as a nanny for families in Nashville. She maintained her teaching position over many years and established herself as a seasoned childcare professional, excelling in the areas of childhood instruction and social development.
With 16 running years of childhood education under her belt, Sabrina’s childcare experience naturally expanded into business and administration. This included playing a facilitative role in the grand opening of a private preschool in downtown Nashville where she was assigned the position of Director. This role afforded her the opportunity to expand her arsenal of skills into the areas of consumer marketing, sales, employee recruitment, event planning, enrollment, and persuasive touring. Her transition into the business facet of childcare only increased her genuine love and advocacy for quality childhood education.
Having delved into both the teaching and business side of the childcare industry, Sabrina came into her own vision that would allow her to leave a meaningful mark in the childcare field through the pursuit of quality care and education. Her vision manifested itself in the form of her own nanny referral agency, Elite Nannies of Nashville, an agency known for its distinctly unique coupling of childcare and education right within the children’s homes.
For Elite Nannies of Nashville, Sabrina has partnered with co-owner, Kendra Turner, to develop a personalized curriculum for any child to learn, all while being watched over by a qualified nanny. Elite Nannies of Nashville also offers a social component in which multiple families have the option of sharing a nanny, allowing their children to develop their social skills by interacting with other children in a safe and familiar environment. Sabrina strongly believes that education and socialization at an early age is extremely important to the quality of the rest of a child’s life.
Kendra Turner is the co-owner of Elite Nannies of Nashville. Her small town roots originated in Celina, Ohio. After being raised there, Kendra set her sights on the University of North Dakota where she successfully earned a Bachelor of Science in Education with a concentration in Elementary Education. Upon graduation, she returned back to her roots in Ohio and enjoyed the versatility of teaching a broad age span of children by delving into the circuit of substitute teaching.
In 2003, Kendra continued her growing path as a childhood educator by leaving Ohio and accepting a teaching position at a reputable, private preschool in Franklin, TN. During her ten years as a preschool teacher there, including two years as a Kindergarten teacher for Nashville's Metro Schools, Kendra was able to hone her skills in early childhood education. Her combined experience cultivated a solid belief in the importance of providing superior education to children at an early age.
Equipped with a foundation in academic study coupled with many years of childhood education experience, Kendra has joined forces with Sabrina to develop a unique, comprehensive curriculum specifically designed to evolve and advance as a child ages. Kendra's passion for exceptional childhood education found common ground with Sabrina's own passion, and together they have created a successful pairing of in-home childcare and education. Kendra is committed to executing thorough training to qualified nannies to ensure that the curriculum is taught to every child effectively.
