Sit and Win

pitter-patter nanny service!

Your ideal babysitter has the discipline chops of Jo Frost, the grandmotherly nature of Betty White, and the availability of a Kardashian when Us Weekly calls.

For a blend of top candidates, look to Pitter-Patter Nanny service.

Founders Vanessa Immordino and Jodi Roe have parlayed their experience in early education and behavioral disabilities into pairing families with child care providers for full-time, part-time, or occasional gigs. Their network runs deep; all referrals are CPR certified, have proven track records, don’t smoke, and are as legal as they come.

Nannies involve kiddos in playgroups, classes, and activities outside the home at the parents’ request.

Clearly, they have no trouble keeping up.
