Started in 1998 by Mary Clurman (Nanny News), Judi Merlin (A Friend of the Family), and a group of dedicated industry professionals, National Nanny Recognition Week was created to draw attention to the positive aspects of nannies instead of the negative issues the press seems to thrive on.
Past events scheduled across the country included a 1000 nanny march on the capitol steps of Washington, DC, a rally in Atlanta’s Centennial Park, various parties and picnic hosted by agencies and nanny support groups nationwide. NNRW has become an annual event lauded by nannies, industry professionals, media, nanny support groups, industry leaders, professional organizations and the parents whom employ the nannies. For ideas on how to celebrate your nanny this week, visit the National Nanny Recognition Week website!
Here are some special offers presented to celebrate this week:

“I would like to thank the whole team at SPN for all you guys do. In this midst of the heartbreak and hardships the COVID-19 crisis has imposed on our neighbors, our families, and our friends, I am also inspired and deeply moved by the compassion, resiliency, and the human spirit of the SPN team. Thank you for being there with us. We are here for you.”
"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!"
"SPN is a powerhouse agency of incredible women who embody experience, passion, and a heart for service!"
"SPN provides you with a current understanding of what should be expected of nannies and employers and they empower you by coaching you through it all. When I started to interview with families, they gave me great feedback—it felt like I had my own personal interviewing cheerleaders!"
