Ms. LaWanda Blakeney



I’m LaWanda Blakeney. I am originally from Monroe, NC where I also reside with my five beautiful children. I am currently attending South Piedmont Community College to obtain my degree in Early Childhood Education. I have eighteen years of experience with children of all ages while in a licensed childcare development center, plus caring for various families in their homes as a nanny.


In my spare time, I enjoy listening to all genres of music and watching Hallmark movies. I enjoy making no sew fleece blankets, homemade shea butter, painting abstract art, organizing, baking, cooking new recipes, and making beaded/bangle bracelets.


I love taking care of and working with children while also watching them grow and develop. I enjoy developing relationships with children and their parents.


I'm honored to have the opportunity to work with your children as we meet each of their developmental milestones.
