Alene Mathurin’s My Nanny Circle, a group focusing on the training and empowering of caregivers, was featured in The New York Times yesterday, Feb. 16.

Mathurin held a seminar last Saturday in Midtown, which, according to the newspaper, covered topics like early-childhood development, résumé building and mental health.

About 90 nannies attended, according to the report.

My Nanny Circle was described as a non-political “grass-roots group” .

“There is nobility in the nanny profession,” Mathurin told The Times. “The biggest problem I see is that we have a society that doesn’t value nannies, even though they supply the most important, valuable service: caring for children.”

According to the publication, Mathurin hosts Facebook Live sessions twice weekly on topics such as year-end bonuses and embracing forgiveness. The group’s Facebook page has over 1,500 members.

Mathurin is a family and caregiver coach and selfe-mployed writer who studied psychology and cognitive neuroscience at Rutgers University–Newark, according to her Facebook profile.
