Bayly Silverman- Owner and Founder

I am excited to bring Your Happy Nest to my hometown of Charleston, SC! Before moving back home to Charleston, I had been working in the Atlanta area placing nannies since 2010. Prior to Your Happy Nest, I have worked in the childcare field for over ten years including being a professional nanny, a music teacher, a camp counselor and taught English in Asia with my husband in 2009. I currently live in Mt. Pleasant with my husband, and our two girls. As a mother and former nanny,  I am able to see things from the parent’s perspective as well as the nanny’s perspective. I understand what it means to leave your precious child with someone new. My goal is to make parents feel as comfortable as possible in the process and find them outstanding childcare!

I have been with Your Happy Nest from its launch in 2012 and love working with families and nannies as a placement provider! I studied Early Childhood Education at Georgia State University and have over fourteen years of experience in the child care field.  In addition to over 10 years of experience as a professional nanny and household manager, I have also served on the Board of Directors of a children’s theater and worked as a trainer and educator of preschool teachers.   I understand the special relationship that can develop between a family and  nanny and love working with families to find a perfect fit.  I am originally from Tupelo, MS but now live in Decatur with my husband, 4 year old daughter, and toddler boy/girl twins.  I look forward to finding the best caregiver to suit your family’s unique needs!

I had the pleasure of meeting Bayly, Kasie and Leah while I was a nanny for 2 sweet girls in Brookhaven, GA. I’ve seen, firsthand, how compassionate they all are, and it makes me so happy to be a part of the Your Happy Nest team! I have been studying and working in childcare related fields for 10+ years. I am originally from Indiana. Growing up I worked as a camp counselor, daycare teacher, babysitter, and volleyball coach. I graduated from Purdue University with a degree in Elementary Education. Upon graduation I taught 3’s and 4’s Headstart for a year in Athens, GA before becoming a full-time nanny for the next 3 years. In October of 2016, my husband and I welcomed our baby girl to the world. As a first-time mom and former nanny, I understand how important it is to find amazing childcare for your family.  I look forward to fulfilling all of your family’s childcare needs!

I am excited bring Your Happy Nest to my hometown of Cincinnati, OH!  I was first introduced to Your Happy Nest when I volunteered to be an organizer for the National Nanny Training Day event in Atlanta that was hosted in 2014.  While organizing the event I became acquainted with the staff at Your Happy Nest and felt they were a quality type of agency that supports both the nannies and families needs!  Before working with the agency I was a professional nanny in the Cincinnati area for 8 years and in 2010 I accepted a 5 year nanny position in Atlanta, GA.  My favorite part of being a nanny is the special relationships that I am able to develop with the children I am caring for.  Working with Your Happy Nest has given me the opportunity to help others find the same wonderful experience I enjoy so much. As a new mother I can relate to a parents needs and concerns when hiring someone to care for their child.  As a placement provider my goal is to take the stress out of finding an exceptional nanny so that parents can go to work with a peace of mind knowing their child will be in great hands.

I have served as a professional nanny and household manager in the Atlanta area for the last eight years and I have a total of thirteen years of experience as a nanny. Over the years I have served families and children in many capacities, and I especially have a love for family dynamics.  It is very fulfilling to play a part in helping a family unit run smoothly by providing quality assistance.  As a new mom, I know that motherhood will help me even more to understand the relationship between families and nannies.  I love servicing my hometown of Augusta and the greater CSRA with the best nannies and babysitters the CSRA has to offer. I am so happy to be bringing the trusted and professional services of Your Happy Nest to Augusta.
