Please note: if you’d like one nanny for all (or the majority of!) your needs please visit our permanent placement page.


If you need childcare assistance on a semi­-regular basis, or want to set up care with more than 48 hours notice, you are in the right place!

Our nannies specialize in date night and intermittent care. You might not be in need of one consistent nanny, and maintained services are what we specialize in!

Our team of nannies are the best in the biz. They are trained, screened and ready to swoop in with support for whatever your unique schedule is.

We suggest getting to know a few of our great nannies to create a “care team” -- after all, sometimes it takes a village! Booking care in advance helps families chances of securing their favorite nannies. Not interested in multiple nannies? Check out our permanent placement option!

If you are looking for a specific nanny, please reach out ahead of time to check on availability before booking. We always make attempts to keep the number of nannies sent to one family as minimal as possible.

Let us help you when life happens!
