We are the only agency in New York run by a licensed psychotherapist who is also the author of the best-selling book, Secrets of the Nanny Whisperer, and a regular contributor to the Today Show and Good Morning America.
Our highly unique approach is based on our proprietary 9-step “Gold Standard Hiring Process” created by our founder – Tammy Gold.

Why Use Our Agency To Find Your Perfect Nanny On The Upper West Side?
Whether you are new parents, a parent with toddlers, or the parents of school-aged children and teenagers, you want a nanny that will be a perfect fit with not just your children but your entire family. Our unique process is based on something called “Attachment Theory” (a prominent psychological model that describes the dynamics of long and short-term interpersonal relationships) and our singular purpose is to make lasting nanny/family matches that allow your children to thrive. Since 2007, we have been helping families on the Upper West Side do exactly that and have achieved a 97% placement success ratio.
Finding the right nanny to care for your children is a daunting and time-consuming process and that if done right, can allow your children to thrive while you gain the peace of mind knowing they’re well cared-for while you work, play, and go about your adult life. However, we’ve all seen the occasional nanny absent-mindedly pushing her charge’s stroller through Central Park while talking on the phone to her friends. The families that employ these types of nannies have unfortunately ended up with a sub-optimal match and their children can suffer from something we call “benign neglect,” causing developmental delays and emotional problems. Sadly, this type of “mismatch” is so popular that websites and social media groups have been set-up to help alert parents to their nannies’ poor behavior.
Since 2007, we have been helping families on the Upper West Side find their ideal nanny. Our founder, Tammy Gold, has been featured as a parenting and childcare expert on Good Morning America, Fox News, CBS News, and more. She is also the author of the best-selling book, Secrets of the Nanny Whisperer – A Practical Guide for Finding and Achieving the Gold Standard of Care for your Child.
