Enhanced Support for Your
Independent Nanny Search

Let Us Handle the Tedious Parts

Comprehensive Nanny Vetting

We understand that not every family wants or is able to work with an agency to recruit their nanny. However, many families lack the expertise to properly recruit, vet, hire, and employ a nanny on their own. The expectations for nannies have increased significantly, yet the industry continues to produce candidates who may not be entirely honest about their experience.

Shockingly, only about 4-6% of "nannies" meet the recommended standards. With no required qualifications or industry standards, it falls on agencies or parents to set and enforce these expectations.

Our mission is to support every family in ensuring their child’s safety and well-being. If you are independently recruiting, we can help you screen and vet your nanny to ensure they meet the highest standards. Schedule your discovery call with us today.

Expereince makes a Difference 

The Nanny Tribe has developed an unparalleled comprehensive nanny vetting strategy. With a deep understanding and experience in the nanny industry, we screen for the essential qualifications needed to ensure a safe environment for your family. Our process includes comprehensive background checks that exceed industry standards and personal reference calls—because hearing a voice is more effective and personable than an automated system. Additionally, we use other indispensable strategies to help you verify the perfect caregiver with confidence and peace of mind.

We do not cut corners when verifying your candidate because your family's and child's safety is our top priority.

I have absolutely loved working with Nicole and with The Nanny Tribe. Nicole is so considerate and has always made sure I have felt comfortable working with families and advocates and looks out for me as a nanny and a human being. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with The Nanny Tribe. Overall, I am so happy and grateful to be a part of their team!
