At The Island Nanny we know how much you love your children...we also know how important it is to take time away to care for yourself or go connect and have fun with others. 

Taking time away from the people you love most can be encouraging to your overall well-being and personal growth, in addition to benefitting the health of your other important relationships. 

Replenishing and reviving your being, it helps you to guide, give, and care with a more gracious and clear heart and a more discerning and clear mind.

We love our families, and welcome the opportunity to make genuine family and friendship connections with you.  Our customers return to us year after year specifically for our down to earth care and our one love, one world agenda.  Anna Goodreau and The Island Nanny have been a respected childcare connection for over 14 years.  Beginning with its founder Ms. Angela Strong, she knew that loving and guiding children properly are two of the most important jobs in existence, and it is with that mindset that we have continued to propel and operate our heart, mind and spirit centered business.

Our intention at The Island Nanny is to help you grow your children into the best versions of themselves.  A version that will create peace and joy, not only for themselves, but also for you and the world around them.

Being loved, taught and guided in love, and kept safe is what we hoped for as children, and it is that which we provide for you and your children.  Fun, games and activities are definitely part of our care but so are learning to be self-aware, earth conscious and helpful to others.  Sharing, taking turns, honest discussion and respect are all parts of our progressive love and peace based childcare service.  We operate under the Golden Rule:  Treat others the way you wish to be treated, and believe that if we all continue to put this rule into practice, in every situation life finds us in, the results can only be positive and world changing.  We are here to nurture your children's hearts and minds so that you can nurture yours, because sometimes, it takes more than just the parental units to care for and RAISE a child to his/her highest potential, we are really in this together.

Miss Anna Goodreau is the current owner and principle nanny at The Island Nanny and her vision is clear.  The mother of two precious and growing individuals herself, she enjoys helping families become better and making people feel loved.

All nannies that have chosen to be a part of this family business have been hand-picked by Anna or the previous owner.  All are parents, grandmothers, aunties or uncles with backgrounds in the performing and healing arts, childhood education and administration, western and holistic medicine, human relations and just overall love and kindness.

Published in Benchmark Publishing's Important Tips for Expecting Moms - Why it's Important to Plan Ahead, she sees a need for enlightenment in regards to the subjects of love and friendship, conscious conception-pregnancy-delivery, the RAISING of our children, and what a priority self-love/self-care should be in all our lives.   Anna is highly aware of the fact that the only way our world will heal and change for the better is through RE-prioritization, honest communication, sharing and taking turns, assisting and healing the less fortunate, and ourselves, loving one another, and taking action on the daily to make this change happen.  She says "slow down a beat", there is no love nor care nor consideration of others in rushing. 

With a background in the healing and performing arts, creative and visual arts, human relations and business, her creative and intellectual sides, but even more-so, her gentle-loving side, are what set her apart in this business.  We hope you can feel this every time you call.

Many Mahalo's from our family to yours.
