Can I not find babysitters or nannies on my own?

Of course you can get on the internet or use other means to find sitters or nannies on your own. However, we are able to save you time and effort by using our agency. We make the process of finding the right caregiver easier, less stressful and more effective. This ends with longer lasting results for several reasons:

  1. We screen our candidates more thoroughly than the average family is able to.
  2. The candidates that the agency sends to you to review and interview have undergone our unique and dynamic 9-tier screening process that includes competency and personality assessments, in-person interviews, reference, social media and background checks.
