What sparked the idea to form the Nanny League?

I have 20 years experience working with children in multiple capacities. After working in the entertainment industry for three years, unfulfilled, I wanted to shift gears and pursue a career working with children. I took on a full-charge live-in nanny position for a high-profile family in the affluent Holmby Hills LA community. Here I took on a variety of roles: caregiver, teacher, chauffeur, personal shopper, party planner, photographer, assistant, and friend. Wanting to meld my collegiate background with my experience and love for children, the Nanny League was born. We now proudly serve the entire tri-state area, all of California and Seattle. We do recruit across the country, and are happy to help any family in need of a quality, college-educated nanny!

What advice would you give to parents who are starting to search for a nanny?

Call us!  We are here to do all of the hard work for you and help make this a seamless and painless process–310-893-9355.

What’s next for the Nanny League, and most immediately, what can parents expect to see from you at the New York Baby Show?

We will be in the MomTrends Blogger Lounge at the New York Baby Show.

The Nanny League on LezbeMommies Radio

cropped-LezBeMommies4-e1390173673223

“When you’re working parents, one of the hardest decisions you’ve got to make is finding the right childcare for your family.  Many families choose to hire a nanny to have a more personalized and one-on-one interaction with their children.  But when you’re hiring an individual, how do you ensure you’re finding someone you completely trust with your child and your home, who’s reliable, honest and great with kids?  It’s like hiring a second (or third) parent for your children.  For many parents, it’s hard to find the right match.” – Elizabeth Caliva, LezBeMommies Radio host.
