One of Florida's Most Well Respected Nanny Agencies
Kensington Nanny is a Christian company that started in Jacksonville, Florida in 2003 and grew to multiple locations, including locations in Boca Raton, Wellingtron, Ft. Lauderdale & Weston. We believe the agency grew quickly because of our commitment to principles, and our level of service and affordability. From mom-to-mom, word of our trusting service quickly spread.
Kensington is locally owned, and not a franchise. Its staff is actively "plugged-in" to the nanny community to ensure that we refer nannies that are known, trusted an respected among their peers. Kensington is a proud member of the Boca Raton Chamber of Commerce.
Each holiday, Kensington Nanny's Santa Tree program provides hundreds of holiday gifts to needy and at risk children in north and south Florida who otherwise would not receive a gift. This program is made possible through the combined effort of businesses and municipalities throughout the community.
Angela von Dietrich, Founder & Family Director
Ms. Angela von Dietrich is the founder of My Kensington Nanny and a proud mother of two daughters, Elizabeth, age 15 and Victoria, age 22. Ms. von Dietrich is also a former International Nanny Association member where she served as an event producer, as well as an educator of nanny agencies throughout the United States. Prior to founding Kensington Nanny in 2003, Angela managed international product marketing for Citrix Systems, as part of a team responsible for its cultivation into a billion-dollar, publicly-traded, Fortune 500 company. Overseeing Programs Management for the company's flagship product as well as its vertical initiatives, she guided over 700 staff in 24 countries.
In 2003, Ms. von Dietrich moved to Jacksonville, Florida and decided to pursue her interest of giving back to the community by raising the standards of nanny care services. Because of this, she introduced the first Kensington Nanny agency, modeling its best practices after the world-class nanny agencies she used whilst traveling abroad. Kensington Nanny expanded to several locations, including St. Augustine and Tampa, Florida.
In 2007, Ms. von Dietrich introduced the Professional Nanny Etiquette Certification to professionally certify her nannies throughout the area. This course allowed families to enjoy an even higher level of service from the Kensington nannies working in their home.
During the Great Recession of 2009, Ms. von Dietrich weathered the down-turn by acquiring responsibility as president and managing director for a senior home healthcare agency located in Orange Park and Gainesville, Florida. Her responsibilities included managing over 300 employees, as well as streamlining operations and increasing profitability.
In 2012, Ms. von Dietrich relocated back to her hometown of Boca Raton where she opened My Kensington Nanny's home office, as well as satellite offices in Weston, Ft. Lauderdale & Wellington.
Ms. von Dietrich is a member of the Boca Raton Chamber of Commerce. She is also a member of the Junior League of Boca Raton, an active social organization that provides volunteer services to help under-privileged children and families in the community.
