One of our favorite things to do at Sittercity is get to know members of the nanny community. It’s incredibly important for the professionals in this industry to connect and support each other—and we love making that happen. We’ve pulled together a list of just some of the amazing pros we’ve met that we think you should know too. Reach out to someone to connect—tell them Sittercity says hi!

1. Nanny Nikki Music

Nanny Nikki Music

Nikki spreads the joy of music to every child she encounters (and us too!). Throughout her childhood she enjoyed performing in musicals, choirs, and pretty much everywhere she went. And she didn’t stop when she became a professional nanny. She now does high-energy, interactive musical shows that include sing-alongs, dancing, puppets, and more! We love seeing someone blend something they love with how they inspire kids. See her conversation with Sittercity here.

Keewa from Kido Chicago

Business-owner, mom, and former nanny, Keewa is energized to create an environment where all children, parents, and caregivers can feel seen. She owns Kido Chicago, an award-winning kid’s boutique. Representation and inclusivity are what she and her store are all about. Children of color, kids with disabilities, and non-traditional families are put in focus, in order for everyone to learn and grow. She also regularly hosts events to unite her community around these values and we’ve loved partnering with her this year in support of these events. See her conversation with Sittercity here.
