You Have Professional Assistance to Help You Find a Nanny

Hiring a full-time Nanny is the most popular Nanny service that families use when they need to find the best Nanny for their family. But we can do more. For families that need various schedules such as a part-time Nanny, a flexible Nanny, or a seasonal Nanny, the Kensington Nanny agency services are the best. Sometimes what a family needs is a mother’s helper for mornings or afternoons. Mother’s Helpers are excellent when Mom (or Dad) needs help getting the children up and ready for school or preschool, help with organization and light housekeeping, cooking and laundry, and driving to/from school. We require our professional Nannies to have reliable transportation and an excellent driving record.

Do you need a newborn or infant Nanny? Or do you have an energetic toddler? We have Nannies who specialize in certain age groups. When you hire Kensington Nanny to help you hire a Nanny then we will match a Nanny specifically to your needs.
