We Provide the Best Nanny Service

As a Parent of Twins, This is Why We Built This Company:

Whether you are on a trip, traveling, or visiting Sonoma or Napa Valley, if you need childcare, then you need someone reliable who you can trust to take care of your kid(s).

Truthfully, that person can be pretty hard to find on the various sitter and care website marketplaces. You know the ones we’re mentioned here. You send out a dozen or more messages, get a few responses, and maybe find one or two that fits your criteria. Do you have time for all that messaging? Are these individuals reliable? Are they insured? Are they registered with TrustLine?

If you are visiting California from out of the state, do you know what TrustLine is?

TrustLine is the background checking tool that is used by the State of California. It is also unique because it is the only background check authorized by California State law to use databases that the general public, including private investigators and private background check companies, cannot access.

All employment agencies (My Vacation Nanny) are required by law to register their caregivers with TrustLine upon placement. Nanny marketplaces (ubransitter, care) are not held to the same laws, make sure to perform your due diligence and caveat emptor (buyer beware).

In addition to the challenge of finding the right person on a marketplace, if there is a last-minute cancelation by the sitter, there is no backup to replace that individual.

My Vacation Nanny provides a much better experience for childcare.

From the start, we have removed the hassle of messaging sitters as we have insured and pre-screened dozens of qualified, TrustLine registered nannies. We also made booking extremely easy. All you have to do is tell our company when you need someone and we will have a nanny available for you.

If you would like to pre-screen the nanny first, you can chat, Skype or even meet the vacation nanny ahead of time. And you never have to worry about cancellations, even our backups have backups.
