Aloha E Komo Mai!

My name is Sharon Hackleman and I am the owner of Nana's Babysitting Service on the island of Kauai. I offer quality babysitting services for local families as well as tourists visiting our beautiful island paradise. 

I have over 33 years experience working with children as a daycare operator, counselor, tutor, and mentor. I am the mother of two awesome daughters and  Nana to my beautiful 11 year old granddaughter. I am also the creator of  the Mind Time Cards, affirmation cards that teach young minds about the power of positive thinking and behavior. They are available for purchase at My connection to children is a natural gift and I truly feel blessed to live in paradise and be able to do what brings my heart so much joy!

I personally plan every sit according to age. I bring what many clients refer to as my 'magic suitcase' full of toys, activities, and games. The children also really enjoy the arts and crafts that I bring along and all supplies are included in the sit charge.  I also plan plenty of outdoor activities as well.  If there is a park nearby I love to take the children to assure they get their exercise! I am certified in Child & Infant CPR and First Aid.

I know how important it is for parents to be able to read comments from other parents regarding something as important as childcare so please visit my review page and read what past and present clients have shared about my services. 

Mahalo for your consideration and I look forward to meeting your babysitting needs whether you are a visitor to our beautiful island or one of the blessed beings who live here.
