Nicole Macauley Rappa, Founder
I have enjoyed being with children for as long as I can remember. I am a graduate of Cal Poly with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Child Development. While working in after-school programs, I discovered my love of art-centered childcare. I began to create art-based workshops, kids' birthday parties, and art therapy classes in the Central Valley, and Art on Wheels was born.
Not long after I moved to Monterey in 2019, I discovered that local hotels were in need of quality babysitting services. Now I offer top-of-the-line childcare services to families who are guests of The Lodge at Pebble Beach, Spanish Bay, Carmel Valley Ranch, Bernardus Lodge and Spa, Intercontinental, Portola Hotel and Spa, and others.
I only hire qualified people that are CPR certified, background checked, reference checked, and have experience working with children! All my sitters are either teachers, nannies, art instructors for children, nurses, or daycare business owners.
If you are here on business or pleasure, OUR most important job is to give you peace of mind knowing your children will be in the very best hands.
