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.

Dear Families,

My name is Beth Symington; I graduated from the University of South Carolina with a Bachelors degree in Elementary Childhood Education.  I am a former teacher and have also been a professional nanny.

Once I had children of my own, I decided to stay at home and became very active in local MOMS Clubs.  I was the President of a local chapter of the International MOMS Club in VA Beach, VA from June 2003 to May 2004, as well as the playgroup coordinator for four and a half years.  I was also the Sunshine Committee Coordinator (where members provide meals/assistance to other members who have just had a baby, surgery, family emergency, etc.) and playgroup coordinator for a local Mothers and More moms club in Summerville, SC from 2006 to 2010.


Being the wife of a U.S. Navy Retiree, I know first hand how hard it is to find experienced, dependable, trustworthy people to care for your children.  For years I relied on friends or family to watch my two boys and I always felt like I was imposing on them.  Because they have their own busy schedules and agendas, it was often difficult to find someone to take care of my children when I had a doctor’s appointment, date nights with my husband, social events, and more.  I never hired a babysitter because I didn’t know anyone to ask, didn’t want to leave them with the 14 year old teenager and didn’t feel comfortable taking out an ad and leaving my two boys in the hands of unscreened strangers.  After talking with many other parents I realized that there was a real need for qualified, dependable sitters and in turn Elite Nannies and Sitters was born.

I am a well-organized, compassionate person who truly enjoys helping others. I will not recommend anyone to you that I would not feel comfortable leaving my own two children with.  I take the safety and security of your family very seriously and I look forward to working with and assisting you find your “Elite” Nanny match real soon.

Warmest Wishes,

Beth Symington
