Personal Family Consults
Family Consults in person with one of our staff are a pre-requisite when looking for a Nanny Match. We will identify your exact infant / childcare needs. You can easily request one of these online or through the MindBody App once you are registered and have paid the membership fee.
If you have further questions about Sitters, Infant Care, Matched Nannies or Nanny Placements, please contact your Local Area Manager or NannyPod Headquarters:
