"I would rate Stanford Park Nannies very highly! They provide a great flow of very qualified candidates, who are all prepared to pay taxes. They have a great vetting process and did not waste our time with those that weren’t a fit. In addition to our full-time search, they had the ability to quickly identify relevant interim/temp nannies as well!"

    I love Stanford Park. Ever since my original interview (I'm a nanny), I knew I wanted to work with them. Everyone there is attentive, understanding and personable. Whenever I call with questions, they are always willing to help me … More navigate through my thoughts. They understand how things are from both nanny and parent perspective, so their insight is spot on. They work hard to find great matches for everyone and genuinely care about what each parties needs/wants are. I value SPN and if I ever were to have my own agency, I would look to SPN for inspiration and guidance. 10/10 recommend!

    Awesome service and high quality candidates. We tried Stanford Park and Town & Country at the same time, and it wasn't even close.

    We had the pleasure of working with SPN and with Rimma when we were looking for a nanny for my newborn. This was our second kid and we had toddler also at home due to daycare being closed down due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As you can imagine, … More not having a nanny was extremely stressful as managing two very small, dependent kids while also managing work was very hard for me and my partner. We had been looking for a nanny for few months on our own, found one who didn't turn out to be good fit and quit, and were exhausted. We had also tried using an agency (that was cheaper than SPN) but they were unable to find a nanny even after 5 months, stating COVID as the reason.
    When we reached out to Rimma and SPN, we were at our ropes' end. Rimma helped us get to well defined but not prescriptive job description for the nanny, worked along side us to guide us through the interview process, sent resumes that met our defined needs, arranged prompt interviews for candidates we liked and checked in on us to explore different options (such as temp nanny) as we navigated the full-time nanny search process with her.
    Rimma was on top of everything and very proactive with her nanny search for us as well as communication. My stress levels reduced so much just knowing that Rimma was constantly looking for a nanny for us. It took us couple of months to find the nanny after we had done trials with few of them but at each step Rimma was there with us and eventually helped us find a wonderful nanny within our budget despite COVID. We couldn't be happier with the service Rimma and her team provided. I loved working with Rimma as she made realistic promises and was prgamatic about what can and cannot be done in the timeframe we were looking at. This helped set the right expectations and reduced surprises along the way. She had a quick turnaround on all the paperwork when we decided to make an offer and the whole paperwork process was super easy and a breeze, thanks to Rimma and her team!
    I would highly recommend SPN and Rimma if you want to find a loving, reliable and safe nanny for your kids. She and her firm are amazing, and I couldn't be happier with the results.

    Our family has worked exclusively with Stanford Park Nannies for 18 years, since our first child was 3 months old! As first-time parents, we really depended on Daryl's team's support--helping us identify what was important to … More us, sending us only well-qualified nannies matched to our requirements and personality. The entire team is very professional and also extremely friendly and pleasant.
    Originally, we started with three agencies, and found that the other two just tossed us reams of resumes, leaving us (busy with our six-week old infant) to sort through on our own what worked. We quickly came to appreciate the effort Daryl's team put into really trying to fit a nanny to our family.
    We really appreciate that all their nannies are registered with TrustLine, with their backgrounds checked thoroughly, and that very detailed references were provided. We really appreciated having to only talk to a couple of candidates to find a perfect match, not wasting our time nor the time of the nannies. Stanford Park Nannies became our security blanket. We truly have not worried, no matter the situation, about having quality child care for 18 years!
    Over the years, as our kids grew up, our needs changed, and Stanford Park was there with us, adjusting to our situation and feedback. And, having the entire team as a resource for us (as well as for the nanny) was something we really came to rely on through any challenging topic--Stanford Park Nanny's suggestions, coaching and willingness to be a sounding board gave us a real feeling of security.
    We also used their temporary nanny service when one of our nannies was out for a few months with a new baby or needed to travel home to deal with a family issue for several weeks. And, we used the on call service whenever our nanny was sick. Both services are fabulous, filling a void seamlessly and our kids enjoyed having the new person for a few days or weeks. The temporary and on call nannies really know how to quickly fit in to the new situation quickly.
    I can't say enough about this group, and have recommended their services many, many times over the years.

    Stanford Park Nannies is a powerhouse agency of incredible women who embody experience, passion, and heart for what they do. Daryl & Maggie are two of the friendliest and hardworking women I know. They take their jobs -- placing nannies … More into the homes of their client families -- very seriously. Their primary concern is and always will be making sure that both the family and the nanny feel it is a good match long term. In addition, the office staff is incredible -- Sarah especially! She proved that to me by responding almost immediately to an after-hours crisis I was having on her personal time. These women are all polite and eager to help in any way they can.
    From a nanny's perspective, I have time & time again been awed by Daryl & Maggie's thoroughness and care. They have been there for me from beginning to end: from walking me through the interview process, to helping me compare job offers from families, and even guiding / advising me years into my placement. Daryl & Maggie have truly been an invaluable resource to me as a nanny.
    Years later, I have now entered the corporate world but still accept on-call nanny jobs through Stanford Park Nannies during my evenings and on weekends. I have known and worked with them for 4+ years now and I hope to continue my relationship with them for years to come.
    If you are a family looking for a nanny, you couldn't have better people helping you with your search. If you are a nanny looking for a client family, I guarantee you that your experience with Stanford Park Nannies will be truly enjoyable.
    I feel lucky to know these women, and am grateful to have them in my corner.

    We were connected with our first ever nanny through SPN 4 years ago. She has been with us the whole time and she is absolutely AMAZING. when we were in the process of choosing someone Maggie was very helpful and we really learned about … More having a nanny since we'd never done this before and we've never looked back on our choice. This month our lovely nanny hurt herself and told us she'd be out for about 1 month. We were in crisis mode as we needed someone quickly and we'd developed very high expectations over 4 years with the same lovely woman in our home every day! Within one business day Maggie came through with a perfect match for us. Not only will her schedule work well with ours, but she is a great nanny with a wealth of experience. She is absolutely perfect for our family!
    If you're looking for personalized and professional help in finding the perfect nanny, SPN is the way to go!

    I am a Nanny that has been recently placed with a family via Stanford Park Nannies. I would just like to share that I am extremely happy with Stanford Park Nannies. I have known Daryl and Maggie for almost 4 years now (since I have lived … More in CA) and have been very happy with their services.
    I think sometimes people forget that Stanford Park Nannies is an agency that isn't just looking out for the best interest of the families, but they are also looking out for the best interest of their Nannies as well.
    Maggie and Daryl have been very cautious and great about making sure that the Nannies are in a safe environment. I have been placed as a full-time Nanny in the past and only left that position because the Mom had lost her job due to budget cuts.
    Since then, Daryl (owner), Maggie (co-owner), Jill, Christine and Nina have gone above and beyond to offer Temp positions as well as sent me out on regular interviews. They really take into consideration what the Nannies are seeking in families as well as what families are seeking in a Nanny.
    I feel that they have always been supportive and proactive in finding the right placement and not just randomly placing me. I have enjoyed working with them and will continue to work with them. I am proud to be a part of the Stanford Park Nanny agency's family. Thank you for all of your hard work and dedication. I appreciate all of the heart put into the work to make families and Nannies happy in the Bay Area.
