Care beyond compare

Stanford Park parents and nannies share their experiences.

“I was frustrated and exhausted having spent my entire maternity searching for a nanny online and no one met my standards. …(you) gave me such peace of mind. I was able to find an exceptional nanny who could provide better care to my daughter than I could.”
KATE S., WILLOW GLEN
“From the nanny point of view, SPN is the tops. Their service is personal, supportive, professional and they get the job done. Both Daryl and Maggie are always there when you need them, from the beginning of the interview process to working out logistics with a new family.”
RITA D.
“Our family has worked exclusively with Stanford Park Nannies for 18 years! We have really depended on their support — helping us identify what was really important to us and sending us only well-qualified nannies matched to our requirements and personality.”
MARY M., LOS GATOS
“Our SPN temporary nanny was just wonderful! She took the kids to the park, read stories, made craft necklaces, and patiently negotiated sibling squabbles. We marveled at how quickly the kids took to her!”
NIKKI T., MOUNTAIN VIEW
