Since 2008 the Williamsburg Nanny Agency has helped hundreds of families in the Hampton Roads and Richmond areas find the best quality childcare available. Our mission is to provide our clients with trustworthy, reliable and nurturing nannies who will form strong bonds with the children and parents and stay for the long term. We are experts when it comes to finding the most suitable candidates that match our customer's needs and for the past five years have had an average retention rate of 95%. We have a reputation for excellence and maintain high standards following the  International Nanny Association's guidelines at all times.



Professional Nannies

We work exclusively with nannies who are dedicate to a career working with children in some capacity e.g. as a professional nanny or a  teacher in early childhood education. to be considered as an applicant candidates must possess previous experience working as a nanny in a home setting. Through training and guidance, many of the nannies who currently work for the agency have chosen to become a 'nanny for life' and many of the nannies who joined the agency back in 2008 are working with their second or third family. We require that candidates meet a strict list of criteria. Please click here to see the list and to find out more information about these requirements.


 A Detailed Process 

The process of finding a nanny involves many steps and at the Williamsburg Nanny Agency we go above and beyond to ensure the candidates we find are a)safe b) experienced and c)a good personality fit for your family. We meet with every candidate in person for a one hour interview and before meeting a client they have to complete an application form, take a childcare aptitude test and have excellent references. The technology used to conduct background checks are the best available and we continue to monitor nannies during their employment with you. We believe a work agreement is important as this helps to manage both nanny and family's expectations and can help to form a stronger relationship and this is something we will prepare for you.

We are so grateful to Niki for helping us to find our dream nanny who has been with us now for three years. She has also provided fill-in childcare when our nanny was sick. I would recommend her to any parent looking for a nanny.

My husband and I recently attended a wedding in Williamsburg, VA.  The Williamsburg Nanny Agency assisted us with getting a nanny to watch our toddler (15 months) while we attended the wedding and reception.  Throughout the whole time we worked with the agency from the booking process through the event itself, we found everyone we worked with to be extremely professional, reliable, and responsible.  We loved the fact that they came to the hotel to watch our son.  They remained in contact with us throughout the event which assured us that our son was safe and having a good time.  We especially loved the fact that they sent us some photos of our son while we were at the wedding.  If you are coming to the area and need someone you can trust to watch your child we recommend the Williamsburg Nanny Agency.

The Williamsburg Nanny Agency provided nannies to care for our twins overnight. At first we were nervous to hand over the care of our babies but the nanny was highly professional and listoned carefully. She has been so reliable. We are very happy with the service.

The Williamsburg Nanny Agency came to the rescue when we had our newborn twins. Their experienced and professional night nannies ensured we were able to get some much needed sleep in the first few weeks when they came home.
