What Parents Say


Each day, Dannie and Simone work small miracles with not just my children, but all the lucky children in their care.



The most trustworthy babysitter, respected mentor and competent teacher and advocate both academically (French, Spanish, English, writing, reading and math) and social-emotionally



Simone has been invaluable in helping to steward my daughters in the direction I hope for them, in the direction that is best for them, and in the direction that allows them to meet their greatest potential and annihilate the odds against them as little women of color.



She holds Sydney and Mckenna to high standards in all academic subjects, as well as in character and social-emotional aptitude, so that they can and will fulfill their greatest potential because Simone believes in my daughters as much as we do.


Meet the Founder

Hi! My name is Simone Henry and I am a lifelong child advocate and child development counselor. I started off as a preschool teacher's helper at the age of nine and have volunteered with children in every community I've been a part of since. I volunteered with and babysat/ advocated for countless NYC kids throughout my time studying at Columbia University (thus getting to know the city and the school systems) and then returned to graduate school to learn how to truly serve as a child advocate via Harvard’s Graduate School of Education. Nothing brings me bigger, brighter and more profound joy than sitting down with a family or institution and strategizing with them on how to help their child or children be and stay as happy and as successful as possible. No matter the challenge, I will work tirelessly with you to reach your child's full potential and I hope our work brings you joy, hope, light and a lot less stress!
