Our Commitment to Families, Nannies and Babysitters
  • OUR BELIEFS

    We believe every family deserves excellent child care. The best child care providers cultivate children’s abilities and interests, enhancing their overall development and self-esteem. Active, engaging child care stimulates imagination and encourages exploration and learning.

  • OUR PRIORITIES

    Our nanny agency knows that safety is every parent’s top priority, and it’s ours too. All of our nannies and babysitters undergo an extensive screening process, come with excellent references, and have completed a national criminal background check. Only 6% out of thousands of applicants pass our rigorous screening process.

  • OUR COMMITMENT

    We are committed to providing your family with a committed nanny or babysitter who is the best possible match for your family. Parents need a support system just as much as kids do, so we’ll be there every step along the way. Our nanny agency is your support system.
