About NY Nanny Center
NY Nanny Center, a Bell Family Company- The Gold Standard in Nanny Placements and Training
NY Nanny Center began nearly 25 years ago by Carol Solomon, a working mother & licensed social worker. Carol was aware of the tremendous need for competent, consistent & nurturing childcare providers to help your children grow successfully. In 2013, she decided to retire and turn over her business to Lindsay Bell, Bell Family Company’s owner, to carry on her legacy of providing quality nannies to NY families.
Our nanny services, is the first run by licensed psychotherapists, certified coaches, former nannies and teachers who match families with nannies suited to the specific developmental needs of their child. Instead of focusing on the physical match (days, hours, location). We provide the highest level of service to our parents so that they can be assured they have found the very best caregiver for their child. We believe when it comes to finding people who care for and directly affect the lives of children, family-nanny matching should never be a game of chance or setting for “good enough.”
WHY OUR NANNY PLACEMENT SERVICES ARE CONSISTENTLY RANKED THE BEST IN NY
Access to On-Demand Sitter Services coverage for Sick Days, Weekends and Vacations
We know that nannies can get sick, may need to travel or leave for an emergency and therefore included in your full time search fee is a complimentary one year membership to our premier on-demand sitter services from Bell Family Company. Weekends, early morning or at night, we have all your childcare needs and emergency childcare situations covered!
We match your nanny specifically to the developmental needs of your child
Merging the 25 year track record of the NY Nanny Center and the reputation of Bell Family Company, our nannies go through a rigorous recruitment process which evaluates each prospective nanny based on psychological and social behavior profiles as well as their childcare skills and experience. We know that “one nanny does not fit all” and our nannies are evaluated on their abilities to deliver the specific developmental needs of children from infancy to teen-hood. Psychological research proves that each of these childhood stages requires a specific set of care giving skills.
We match your nanny specifically to your family’s characteristics and needs
Using our one of kind Family Consultation and Job Conditions our nanny placement professionals thoroughly get to know you and help you to define and articulate your specific childcare needs – making sure your nanny can handle the specific and diverse childcare requirements of your family. For example we 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. We don’t believe in compromising when it comes to spending time supporting and educating our families and nannies, especially when the stakes are so high.
Each Search Includes Nanny Training, Trials and Assessment
You really don’t know if you have the perfect nanny match until the nanny, children and parents are interacting on the job. That’s why we build Nanny Trials into our nanny search process so that nannies and families can experience working together before an offer or placement is made. During the trial period we provide training, coaching and education with both families and nannies to gain objective feedback and assessment of the suitability of the match. This constant communication and support ensures a more successful, happier and long-term placement for families and nannies.
Post Placement Parenting and Childcare Coaching for Nanny or Family
We have licensed social workers, teachers, parents and former nannies here or on-call 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. Our clients have told us this added support to families and nannies has been critical for stronger relationships, placements that last much longer and most importantly better caregiving.
It is because of these reasons that NY Nanny Center is consistently considered the best in NY and as a result, referrals and repeat business make up the vast majority of our placements.
