Can anyone recommend a nanny agency in NYC? I am starting work this fall, and have to search for a nanny for my newborn daughter; there are so many agencies out there (as well as other types of nanny search resources) and I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed. I would love to hear what other people have done in this situation and what has worked for them. Thanks”

  • Do you happen to have an extra bedroom? (I know, I know - it's NYC, why am I even asking?) But if you do, hosting an au pair is a great option. If you'd like to look into it, Cultural Care is now offering consultative matching where you can talk to a placement manager and get matched with potential au pairs before you even apply to the program. It's nice because it doesn't cost a thing and if you don't like your matches, you're not obligated to hire through Cultural Care.

    Let me know if you'd me to help get you started.

  • Since my daughter was born, in September 2007, I was went through three nannies. And found it best to not go through an agency. One member wrote an article on finding a nanny without an agency. Check it out.

  • We didn't use an agency but had friends who used these guys:

    ...and had good experience with them
