As the saying goes, behind every sane family is a wonderful nanny! And Sittercity can help you find the right nanny for your family. Whether you need a part-time nanny, full-time nanny, overnight nanny or live-in nanny, we can help you connect with a caregiver that fits your family’s needs. Expecting a baby soon? You can also search for baby nurses who can help you during those first few weeks when you and your newborn need extra help the most. Going on vacation? We can help you connect with sitters all over the United States. Just need a little help with the kids while you’re home? Consider hiring a mother’s helper, who can lend a much-needed extra hand.

What exactly is a nanny? Nannies are a bit different from babysitters in the sense that they usually have a regular weekly schedule with a certain family. You can choose between full-time nannies and part-time nannies depending on your family’s weekly needs. It’s also good to have a backup nanny that you know and trust so that you have child care covered if your usual nanny calls in sick.

How much do nannies charge? The average hourly rate varies depending on where you live. Look up your state on Sittercity’s rate calculator.

It’s common to find a nanny through recommendations from family and friends. When you have to look beyond your circle, Sittercity is your next stop in your search for quality nannies. We have thousands of nannies for you to choose from, and you can narrow your search based on qualifications and your family’s needs. You can also post a nanny job and let the nannies come to you.

Whatever your nanny needs might be, Sittercity can help you out!
