We Don’t Just Help Find A Nanny in NYC. We Create Gold Standard Nannies.
Tammy Gold MSW, LSW, CEC and her team of “Nannyologists” have successfully been matching families with nannies for over a decade. They are the only agency to use Gold’s patented “11-Step Gold Standard Hiring Process,” the formula outlined within Gold’s Secrets of the Nanny Whisperer: How to Find and Achieve the Gold Standard of Care for Your Child. Initial family interviews, transcribed reference checks, and a psychotherapy-based approach don’t even begin to scratch the surface of what differentiates this group from their peers.
A Gold Standard Nanny is well-trained and meticulously matched with the appropriate family based on the nanny’s ability to handle a child’s emotional, developmental, and social needs.
A Gold Standard Nanny assures the “Constancy of Care” for your child. “Constancy of Care” means that your children will feel the same level of comfort, safety, and security with their nanny as they do with you. A nanny is not a parental placeholder, so it is crucial that they have the the “parent-like” skills and disposition that your children need in order to thrive.

What Makes Our Nanny Placement Services So Unique
We Have It Down To a Science
Psychological research proves that each childhood stage requires a specific caregiving skills set. Tammy’s team matches your nanny to the specific developmental needs of your child. Our sole purpose is to find professionals who can deliver the developmental support your children need from infancy through their teenage years, therefore, allowing your children to thrive.
We Assess Your Family’s Needs
The Family Needs Assessment (“FNA”) is based on Tammy’s years studying psychology. Our goal is to ensure that the nannies we present can handle your family’s specific childcare requirements. If a child, for example, has Type 1 Diabetes, we find a professional that is adept at caring for such a medical situation. If a child comes from a divorced, dual-family household, we find a professional that is capable of maneuvering these circumstances. We do not rush the process; the stakes for your children’s futures are high, so we act accordingly.
Too many placement agencies cut corners when it comes to interviews, screening and reference checks. Tammy Gold and her team individually speak with each candidate in person. In addition, we have the only double-verified reference check in the industry to assure the reference is real. We also conduct background checks to double-verify identities and social behavior. Your children’s safety is our first priority–this is not the place to skimp or be subpar.
We Find Your Perfect Nanny Type
Just like parents, nannies’ personalities and methods of caring for children vary greatly. This is why there is no one-size-fits-all approach with Tammy’s team. By using “Nannyology,” to assess the nanny’s personality type and job preferences, Tammy gold and her team are able to find more specialized and lasting matches for nannies and families.
Each Search Includes Nanny Training, Trials and Assessment
Determining if a match has been made is only possible once the nanny, the children, and the parents are interacting. Nanny Trials are essential for ensuring a successful match. We build a trial period into ever nanny search process; each trial period includes training, coaching, and education for both the nannies and families alike. The feedback and assessment of the prospective match is the ideal way to judge if it’s a good fit.
Our Team in on hand to help with the training and integration of your nanny. Tammy can also handle any bumps along the road (e.g., children not listening to the nanny) or relationship challenges (e.g., communication issues between parent and nanny) that are bound to arise during the initial stages of the parent-nanny relationship. Past and current clients say this added support to the families and nannies has been critical for stronger relationships, long-lasting placements, and most importantly, optimal caregiving.
