Our Services

  • Placements beginning at 30 hours per week - either Permanent (with no anticipated end date) or Long-term Temporary (from one to twelve months with a start and end date) Fewer than 10% of nannies who apply are selected to be represented by our agency. Most successful searches are concluded in 2-6 weeks.
  • Background Screening Services. To assist families who have identified viable candidates on their own, we've created a thorough candidate screening package. This provides a "second look" at your own candidate allowing you to make an informed hiring decision.

We look forward to knowing both the families and nannies we work with. We are always available to help talk through any problems or concerns. It is our goal to offer the continuing support and assistance that forms lasting working partnerships.
