Elite Nannies and Sitters is a Licensed, Limited Liability Nanny Staffing Agency.  We specialize in placing high quality, caring nannies and babysitters for families.  We understand that trying to find a reliable, experienced nanny/ sitter, to take care of your children, can be a very stressful, time-consuming process.  Our goal is to give you peace of mind and make the process easy and safe.

All of our nannies and sitters are carefully screened – our nannies are interviewed face to face; must have previous child care experience; a clean police record; and have CPR training. We take great pride in making sure that we find the perfect match for your family’s unique, individual needs.

If you are searching for a Permanent Nanny, we will personally discuss what your are looking for in a nanny so we can determine your families needs; provide you with screened candidate portfolios; give you tips on interviewing and hiring (including salary negotiation); provide you with a “bare bones” family/nanny agreement; as well as provide you with payroll and tax information.
