OWNER AND FOUNDER
Chinthani Perera-Lunemann (Chini) moved to the Upper East Side, Manhattan,
New York in 2007 from London with 15 month old twins and felt
motivated to start a business to provide services to parents
focusing on areas of parenting which she feels very passionate about.
Chini first started helping her friends, mostly parents of multiples in
Manhattan find Nannies. Her Clients were disillusioned with the only Childcare
options they thought were available. Chini works on a individual basis and
with close contact with the parents throughout the process.
Chini, the Owner and Founder of Mom to Moms Advisor Llc has met in person over 1000s of candidates applying for Nanny and other Childcare positions from around the world. Chini has a lifetime of experience of managing household staff as she herself had several Nannies from birth and comes from three generations within the same family whom have hired Nannies, Butlers, Chauffers, Domestics, Gardeners, etc.
Chini's father was one of five boys in a fully staffed household, with a Nanny whom was responsible for the childcare of five boys as her Grand Mother was a working Mom. That Nanny stayed for a lifetime. Chini's Mom is also a working Mom who always had paid help for childcare and one Nanny whom was hired to care for Chini's sister more than 30 years ago continues to work with Chini's family. Chini and her sister has continued to hire help to run their families as have two generations before hand. It is with this cumulative personal and professional experience along with her passion for making others happy which makes Chini exceptional in the field of Childcare.
In 2013, Chini relocated back to London and have partnered with London's most Exclusive Maternity and Baby Concierge offering everything families need from pregnancy and beyond both in the UK and the US.
Chini has another business created to promote home cooking for babies and toddlers www.babychefservice.com
