Why Our Nannies Love Us 

I had the pleasure of working with Holly from Nanny Knows Best, and she really does! She is so down-to -earth and I really appreciated her motivation to place me with a family that would suit my personality. It was also refreshing to see she paid attention to the things I was specifically looking for in a job and family. I have since recommended Nanny Knows Best not only to some of my nanny friends but also to families searching for a new nanny, confident that Holly would find great matches

— Lara, NYC

"Holly did nothing short of a wonderful job when recommending the best-suited nanny roles based on my skills and experience, fostering excellent matches for the families and myself each and every time. Her unique perspective having been a nanny allows her to ask all the right questions which increases her value to her clients. She takes the time to get to know her clients and nannies, going above and beyond what you’d typically find to place successful matches. It’s easy to say working with Nanny Knows Best has been such a breath of fresh air as a caretaker."
