The best nannies, the best care.

Our nannies are the most qualified, well-vetted professional nannies in the Bay Area. All of our nannies must pass Stanford Park Nannies’ 21-Point Screen. This rigorous process covers all legal and work certifications, reference checks, and strict background checks to assure your child’s safety and help you feel secure. LEARN MORE >>

We do it all for you.


Long-term placement is a solution for parents who need a nanny indefinitely, usually on a regular schedule. SPN places long-term nannies in full-time or part-time positions.


Parent use our temporary services for a variety of situations including: date nights, weekends away, school breaks, sick children, or as backup for their regular childcare provider.


A Newborn Care Specialist fills a very special role in your home. Their job is to provide expert newborn care during the precious first weeks or months of your baby’s life so that you can get the rest you need!


If you have sourced a nanny candidate on your own, SPN offers a la carte background checks as a way for you to ensure your family’s safety.


The best families, the best careers.

You’re a different kind of nanny. Proud of your childcare skills, nurturing manner, and personal integrity. Willing to meet rigorous standards of ethics, education, and training. And you long to be treated – and paid – like a professional.

Say hello to Stanford Park Nannies. 


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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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!”

We have a name for our customer service. It’s called Daryl and Maggie. bfly50

The Afternoon Chauffeur Everyone’s Looking For!

This scarcity of afternoon nannies, along with the increasing need to move children from point A to point B, has paved the road for several local transportation options catering to families just like yours. Although they won’t provide you with all of the services a nanny would, they can certainly take your child from school to soccer, and from soccer to home. The attached list outlines the features and benefits of the local kid’s ride service options. We hope this will be a useful tool, and a way to alleviate some after school stress!
