THROUGH THICK & THIN. A Testimonial….
“I called Ryan in a time of severe need. I had a 4-month old who wasn’t sleeping, a 5-year old who desperately needed my attention and I was going through post-partum depression. I was requesting a miracle —A miracle is what I got. Kate is literally in my phone as “Kate Lifesaver.” Educated Nannies saved my family. It sounds very intense but when you’re in it… it is. Kate spent 4 nights with us that week. My daughter was sleep-trained by the third night thanks to Kate. From there on out — pure bliss. My family is very happy and we owe so much to Educated Nannies.”

Founder & CEO
Witnessing a child’s ‘Aha moment,’ is an inspiring treasure. I‘m passionate about working with parents to understand your goals and your child’s needs, treating your family as I would want mine to be treated, and offering suggestions based on my own experiences as a teacher, nanny, tutor, and mother.”
Ryan Jordan has enjoyed over twenty years of experience working with children and families as a teacher, nanny, and tutor. Ryan earned a multiple-subject teaching credential and Master of Arts in Education from Pepperdine University. In addition to teaching, Ryan spent more than six years as a full-time professional nanny for celebrities and high-profile families in Los Angeles.
Known for her positive attitude and Midwest work ethic, Ryan has been entrusted by many families to help find outstanding childcare and has become a valuable asset as a result. When she’s not collaborating with families, Ryan loves to travel with her husband, plan events, volunteer, host game nights, and play with her two little ones!

Ramar Le Grande
Born and raised in Oakland, California, Ramar Le Grande is one of (count ’em!) eight siblings! She has always loved working with children and she really enjoys learning about behavior management. We are blown away that this scholar has completed a Master’s Degree in Human Resource Management AND a Masters Degree in Psychology. While in her psychology program, she was able to learn more about child development, from preschool to adolescence. Ramar has spent the majority of her career working in Administration and Human Resources. For the past eight years, Ramar has worked in education as an elementary teacher, afterschool educator, and preschool teacher. She considers her greatest accomplishment to be being the mother of six beautiful children, who she loves watching flourish daily. Ramar also loves to cook, travel with her husband, and sing Karaoke with her family.
While growing up in the Chicagoland area, and then all throughout her college career, childcare was always a constant in Dana Peltz’s daily schedule. She has simply always loved caring for children, and being a firsthand witness to watching them learn and grow. After graduating with an Associate’s Degree in Diagnostic Medical Sonography, she worked in both clinical and administrative roles providing outstanding patient care for four years. Upon a cross country move from Chicago to Los Angeles, Dana began working with a nanny agency part-time helping many different families with their childcare needs. Her experience helping an abundance of families has proven to her the importance of making the perfect match for future families in need. She feels passionate about bringing her administrative knowledge and personal nanny experience to our team. Dana also enjoys traveling, spending time with her family and friends, group fitness classes, baking, and taking her dog to the dog beach.

Originally from New York, Arianna is one of five siblings! She has always had a passion for working with children and helping others.
