Our Mission

Nanny Knows Best was born out of a desire to ensure that parents in the New York City area can find the best nanny  for their family needs. Juggling life and a career is a challenge in and of itself. Finding someone to help — that should be easier. That’s where we come in. Our agency is devoted to making the process easier.  Through our expertise, our strong and growing network of incredible nannies, and our unwavering commitment from start to finish, we can ensure you will love your experience working with us.  Get in touch with us if you are looking for a professional and caring nanny for your family's needs in no time.

Meet Holly


Holly Huelster

Holly Huelster is a dynamic, hard-working NYC nanny of more than a decade. She has worked as both a full-time and freelance nanny for many families, earned her Masters in Early Childhood Education from Fordham University, and taught preschool in a Montessori school and at a NYC Universal Prekindergarten for All program. 


While in the field, Holly discovered her natural talent for networking and matching compatible nannies  with families in need.  She worked as an Executive Assistant for another nanny agency, where she was mentored and learned the behind-the-scenes of running an agency, and then made the move to open her own. 

Holly is passionate and committed to changing the lives of all she works with for the better: the families, the nannies and most importantly, the children. She is now bringing all her experience and talents from the nanny industry to create Nanny Knows Best.

Why Our Families Love Us 

Holly was amazing at truly understanding what we as a family needed and connecting us with the perfect person to help us out. Our son has struggled verbally but is great at comprehension and mimicking, so when she connected us with Elizabeth—a high energy Montessori teacher—it was a match made in heaven. Elizabeth has found ways to engage our son in “real world” activities, which he loves, and get him to show us what he wants since he still struggles with verbalizing it. She has endless activities in her repertoire and my son has learned so many useful skills like working with sponges, caring for plants, organizing, and much more.”

— Karina, NYC

“I highly recommend Nanny Knows Best. Holly was instrumental in helping us find our life-long nanny, who has now become a part of our family. It was helpful to know that everyone we met was pre-screened by someone we trusted. This made the whole process seamless and much less stressful. We are forever grateful.”
