Matching wonderful nannies with families since 2010.

The one-on-one care that a nanny provides gives children a deep sense of self-worth and security while giving parents convenience, flexibility and peace of mind.

Finding the perfect nanny for your family can be so difficult.  At Elite Family Care we are experienced in matching nanny candidates to each individual family.  Whether you are looking for a full time, part time, or a temporary nanny we know what questions to ask, what experience is needed, and how to determine if the candidate’s goals both short and long term match up with your family’s needs

Our process starts once we receive your parent application form.  We will set up a time to get to know you and your family better to make the best match possible.  We will provide you with all information needed to find, hire and keep your nanny.

There is a $200.00 non-refundable retainer fee to start the search.  (This fee also includes a lifetime membership to our Elite Sitter Service)

After our initial meeting we will begin our search for candidates that we feel best fit your family needs. We will only send you information on quality, experienced, candidates that we feel are a good match.  We will also help set up interviews with the candidates that you are interested in meeting.


The following items are also required:

  • Screened by phone
  • Interviewed face to face to evaluate experience, childcare skills, knowledge and philosophy
  • Minimum of three childcare references (all references are called to help us evaluate the candidates)
  • Must be Current on First Aid and CPR Certifications
  • Nationwide comprehensive background screening – asktheseal.com
    (Elite background screens candidates prior to sending them to your home)
  • Department of motor vehicles check

Placements could take anywhere from 2 weeks and up. We can fill in during this time with our “as needed” services if needed.

Types of positions

Full Time Nanny:
A full time live out position is where a nanny will work between 30-50 hours per week for your family. A typical full time nanny prefers a fairly set schedule in hours

Part Time Nanny:
A part time position would be where the nanny would work up to 29 hours per week for your family. Typically, the nanny would have a set schedule each week. Part time nannies can vary from after school positions, just a couple of days per week, a weekend position or any other schedule as long as the nanny is guaranteed a certain number of hours per week.

Family Assistant/Household Manager:
A family assistant/household manager is typically for a family who has kids in school at least part of the day and needs extra assistance for the family or household during that time. A family assistant can help with anything from meeting with home maintenance workers, preparing meals, grocery shopping or other errands, light housekeeping, and organization. A family assistant is a flexible position that you can really tailor to your family’s specific needs.

Summer Nanny:
This placement is if you need a nanny over the summer. A summer nanny will often be a college student or teacher looking to work as a nanny before the school year starts.

Temp Nanny:
A temp nanny is for short term needs.

Elite Family Care gives you the freedom to go to work, have an evening out, or even go out of town, knowing that your children are being properly cared for. Day or evening we are here to provide the best of care for the children while you are away.
