Need a Nanny? New NYC Nanny Concierge Service Helps Families Find Best Fit
1-800 Need a Nanny?
With parents juggling full time jobs and raising their families, nannies have become more commonplace. However, the process and criteria for choosing a nanny has dramatically changed thanks to novel ideas such as, the NY Nanny Concierge Services. Founded by Lindsay Bell and Tammy Gold, author of Secrets of the Nanny Whisperer, it is the first nanny search and management service run by licensed psychotherapists, former nannies, educators, and mothers who match families with nannies suited to the specific developmental needs of their children. Instead of focusing on the logistical needs (days, hours, location) they match based on your child’s psychological needs as well. Here are the 5 unique services that they provide:
Childcare matched to the developmental needs of your child: Our nannies go through a rigorous recruitment process which assesses each prospective nanny based on psychological and social behavior, as well as their childcare skills and experience. They know that “one nanny does not fit all” and our nannies are evaluated by their abilities and skills to deliver the specific developmental needs to your child(ren), from infancy to adolescence.
Childcare matched to each specific family’s characteristics and needs: They make sure your nanny can handle the specific and diverse childcare needs of today’s families. For example, they match nannies to specific medical needs, e.g. Type. 1 Diabetes, or psychological needs, e.g. skills to handle the complexities of children with ADHD or specific family needs, e.g. divorced dual family households.
Each Search includes Nanny Training and Assessment: You really don’t know if you have the perfect many match until the nanny, children, and parents are interacting on the job. That’s why the Nanny Training Trials were built into their search process so that nannies and families can experience working together before an offer or placement is made. During the trial period they work with both families, and nannies to gain objective feedback and assessment of the suitability of the match. This ensures a more successful, happier, and long term placement for the families and nannies.
2 hours post placement Parenting and Childcare Coaching for Nanny or Family: We have licensed therapists, certified coaches, and former nannies here or available to help with any childcare challenges (e.g children not listening to the nanny) or relationship challenges (e.g communication issues between parent and nanny) that commonly arise during the beginning stages of the parent -nanny relationship. This added support to families and nannies allows for stronger relationships, lasting placements, and most importantly, better care giving.
Access to 24/7 Sitter Services coverage for Sick Days, Weekends and Vacations: They know that nannies can get sick, may need to travel or leave for an emergency and therefore included in the search fee, is a complimentary one year membership to their premier on demand caregivers from Bell Family Company. Their on demand caregivers are available for all of your child care needs, from emergency childcare situations to travel sitters, weekends, and evenings they have you covered .
