  "We love The Nanny Connection!  We moved from Toledo and had no friends or support system to help us when we needed a sitter. It was such a relief knowing that we had quality, background checked, trained sitters to babysit our kids. Thanks!"

- Tori from Akron

Personal message from Melissa:

Our family has moved twice to new cities where we knew few people and had few child care resources.  We understand how nervous you may be to trust a stranger in your home with your children.  

New families are pleasantly surprised at how easy our team is to work with, and how professional our nannies and sitters are.  

We constantly strive to improve your experience with your feedback.  Please share your experiences with us,

so that we can take  better care of you.  Thank you!
