College Nannies & Tutors offers role models, not just babysitters

I retired after 25 years as a day care provider, a decision prompted by my moving to a different community.  Once I got settled, I set out to find a new job. What happened next can only be described as a miracle.

I applied to be an on-call nanny with College Nannies & Tutors, a company I'd never heard of before.  Turns out they'd only been in operation in my area for seven months.  I lucked out having this franchise near me, since they'd just won Rookie of the Year.

Instead of hiring me as an on-call nanny, I was offered the position of Director of Marketing.  After seven years volunteering my PR skills for the family rights movement, this was icing on the cake.  All that work paid off.

It's been a couple of months now, and I am more impressed with this company than ever.  They hire college students (and recent grads) who are studying in child-related fields.  Instead of placing "babysitters," they custom match the nanny, manny or tutor to the child and his or her family. 

Families get a comprehensive Whole Family Interview, where the needs and desires of everyone involved are understood.  If a child wants to become a pilot, they try to find a nanny with interest or experience in aeronautics.  If the parents need a nanny who will pick the child up from school, or drive him or her to classes, they place a nanny who will do that. 

The nannies at College Nannies & Tutors enjoy taking children on fun excursions, and our franchise specializes in this.  You can see some of the available excursions on the blog at http://danvillelamorindacollegenannies.com.

One thing that makes this company different than the rest, is that they find, interview, hire and train the nannies, mannies and tutors.  Parents never have to do the paperwork, taxes, or hiring or firing of their child care provider.  And College Nannies & Tutors does background checks on each hire before they place them with a family.

They offer full-time placements, though what many people use are part-time and on-call services.  With part-time you get the same nanny every time, for as many or as few regular hours as you need.  With on-call, they can get a nanny to your home any time, any day and asap.  I know parents who have been using this service for date nights and spa days.  Some hire nannies to be available at house parties, weddings and other social gatherings, at home or anywhere

As a long-time child advocate, I do not hesitate to recommend College Nannies & Tutors to busy parents who are looking for quality child care.  In our crazy society, children need good role models more than ever.  This is something College Nannies & Tutors offers, unlike any other placement service.
