Our experienced, professional nannies offer individualized childcare in your home. We provide multiple options including full-time and part-time nannies who are live-in or live-out.
Skip the after-school programs and hire one of our fun and outgoing After-School Nannies. Our After-School Nannies can transport your children to and from activities, help with homework, dinner, and nighttime routines.
No need to sign your kids up for camp this summer! Our Summer Nannies will keep your children active and engaged with fun and educational activities and events held valleywide, while providing household assistance and running any errands you may need.
Running the household AND spending quality time with your little ones can be challenging. Our Mothers' Helpers can assist you with childcare, laundry, cooking, light-housekeeping and other household chores while one or both parents are still at home.
Need a night out or a break from the kiddos? Our amazing babysitters will have you covered!
Need childcare for an upcoming event? We have you covered! We will do everything we can to ensure childcare at your wedding, anniversary party, business event, vacation, or any other special event is perfect.
Our Household Managers not only care for your children on a day-to-day basis, they also keep your house running smoothly. They allow you to devote yourself to your loving family, and pass off the coordinating and planning of your busy household to them.
A family assistant is great for a busy family that requires more than just childcare. Families are able to delegate important tasks such as laundry, cooking, light housekeeping, organizing projects, running errands, grocery shopping, and driving the children to school and/or activities while still being able to benefit from having someone help with childcare.
Would you like your child to learn a second language? If so, hiring a bilingual nanny is the way to go! We have a wide range of bilingual and multilingual nannies that are qualified, experienced professionals.

Our skilled Sleep Trainers work to teach your baby to sleep soundly and peacefully through the night. We work with you to determine what technique you are most comfortable with, and match a sleep trainer that is skilled in that specific technique.
Not on board with the sleep training philosophy, but still in need of some relief during the night? We can connect you with one of our Night Nannies that will care for your baby and cover the night shift. Night Nannies can do feedings, changings, clean bottles, and keep up with your nighttime routine while you get a full nights sleep!
Our Home Educators are ready to help your children excel in their coursework from the comfort of your home! They also provide enriching individualized childcare.
Welcoming a new baby into your home can be overwhelming. Our Baby Planners consult with you and offer education, resources and support. As an expecting parent they will work with you throughout the entire duration of your pregnancy or meet with you for just a few informative sessions.
Our Postpartum Doulas provide evidence-based information on infant feeding, emotional and physical recovery from birth, mother-baby bonding, infant soothing, and basic newborn care. They will be there to help your family in those first days and weeks after bringing home your new baby.
Breastfeeding challenges such as difficulty latching, painful nursing, and low milk production can be overwhelming for both you and your baby. Our lactation consultants are professional breastfeeding specialists trained to teach you the art of breastfeeding, help develop and improve your mothering skills, and provide ongoing support.

County Criminal History: This search provides the most current, complete criminal information directly from county courthouses. Results include: number of years searched, case number, charges, disposition, dates, sentencing details and more. ID Trace, National Criminal Database and other searches can provide additional jurisdictions for county criminal history searches. The standard scope for the county criminal search is seven years, with extended searches available in some jurisdictions.
Driving Records: A report of the candidate's driving history is accessed through state Departments of Motor Vehicles. Results may include: driver's license number, status of license, state, class, issue/expiration dates, violations, incidents, convictions, DUI information and more
National Criminal Database: The nationwide scope of this search provides a broad view of your candidate's criminal history. A National Criminal Database search draws from over 505 million records from thousands of jurisdictions, including databases with terrorist and sex offender information. Some results from the National Criminal Database search must be verified with primary sources (e.g. county criminal history, statewide criminal history, etc.) and could result in additional searches.
National Sex Offender Public Registry: This registry includes sex offender information from the federal government and agencies from all 50 individual states. Maintained by the U.S. Department of Justice, the public registry search returns sex offender profiles, including up to level 3 offenders. Results and details available vary by state.
Hiring a nanny or other household staff means you are legally required to pay employment taxes and follow federal and state labor laws. In order to assist you with payroll, tax, and insurance, we refer our families to Home Work Solutions.
They will get you set up as a domestic employer, and take care of paying your nanny, tax filings, workers' compensation insurance, and compliance with all tax and labor laws.

Hiring an INA member as your nanny means choosing excellence and professionalism. INA members have access to continuous training, a supportive network, and valuable resources that enhance their skills and enrich their caregiving. With a commitment to advocacy and a strong sense of community, an INA member nanny brings not just childcare expertise but also a network of support and a dedication to staying updated on industry best practices. It's more than just hiring a nanny; it's welcoming a highly-trained, connected, and caring professional into your family.
We have nannies who are available to work immediately upon hire, or others that need to give a minimum of two weeks notice to their current employer. Some nannies prefer to give as much as a 4 week notice. From start to finish, we have been successful placing nannies within 48 hours. But as a general guideline, we recommend expecting a 4-6 week timeframe.
We work hard throughout the screening and placement process to ensure we've matched you with the right candidate. Before you make a final decision we will recommend that you do a trial period (up to one week) with your prospective nanny. During the trial you will also work on your Family Nanny Work Agreement which outlines all aspects of the position and what both the nanny and the family can expect from one another. We have found that when a family takes full advantage of the trial period and involves their prospective nanny in the work agreement process, replacements rarely happen. In the rare event that it doesn't work out each placement package we offer comes with its own respective replacement policy! This means your nanny is replaced at no additional charge to you!
Fill out our family application to begin the process. Once we receive your completed application, we will contact you to learn more about your family's needs.
