We learn about you
First we learn about your expectations, needs, personality and family to help identify nannies who will are most compatible with you. Then we assess vital aspects of your candidates' personality and caregiving abilities to help determine things like:
Is she likely to approach your child with sensitivity, warmth and curiosity?
Does she tend to take responsibility for her own behaviors and feelings?
Are her levels of organization, conscientiousness, sociability, activity (among others) likely to meet your expectations?
We Support you
Employing a nanny/au pair is a demanding and (sometimes unpleasant) process. So we support you before and after you hire with things like:
Helping you select your nanny/au pair agency
Reviewing and narrowing down your candidate applications
Advising and assisting you when difficult situations arise with your nanny/au pair
You have a trusted partner at every stage of the process so you don't have to bear the burden on your own.
I'Ve Been In
I know how stressful it is to deal with the inconvenience and anxiety of searching for the right nanny/au pair. I was an au pair host mom for 14 years and I always felt like I was relying more on hope than real information.
I was told I wouldn't know very much about her until she had spent months in my home. I found this approach frustrating and worrisome.
There had to be a better way of vetting these people, but none existed - Until now!
Having someone knowledgeable to help with the search process was such a relief! I was skeptical at first but it was worth every penny!
- Happy Mom

We help you be the parent you
At Center for Nanny Assessment, we know you want to be the kind of parent who navigates life with ease and confidence. But for that to happen you need a household that runs like a well-orchestrated symphony.
The problem is, the methods you’ve been using to find the right nanny aren’t working. They're too time-consuming and demanding and they don’t provide reliable results. You can spend countless hours of your valuable time and end up with someone who lacks the personality or caregiving skills you’re looking for. Trying to manage all of this - along with the rest of your life - can feel impossible and makes you stressed-out and frustrated.

I've been there! I know how inconvenient and overwhelming it can be to sift through profiles, interview applicants and worry about what you’re missing.
As a single mom trying to balance parenting with work,
I hosted 16 au pairs and found that no matter how much experience I had, I was still often unpleasantly surprised. So I committed myself to finding a way to make nanny selection easier, less stressful and more reliable.
After 10 years of researching personality traits required for quality childcare I developed a comprehensive assessment system that will help you identify the sensitive, mature and dependable nanny you desire without the stress and anxiety of a grueling search process.
You don't have to dread the nanny selection process!
Instead, you can feel better than ever about hiring a nanny! She’ll be vetted more thoroughly, with less work, and you’ll finally achieve the stability and peace of mind you’ve been looking for.
Why Do So many
Nanny Relationships Fail?
Lacking information about her
Even with references and interviews you're still limited to:
• Her own description of herself • Third-party references written by strangers • Descriptions of her by agency interviewers who lack first-hand knowledge about her caregiving • That "gut feeling" you get that you can't fully explain With so little reliable information it's impossible to gauge whether a candidate has the maturity, skills and personality to take good care of your child and be responsive to you.
Settling for a nanny who seems "nice"
A nice girl may seem pleasant to be around, but:
• She may be unable to develop meaningful connections, leaving your child emotionally alone and confused in her presence. • She may be incapable of interpreting your child's difficult behaviors, causing power struggles that leave everyone feeling helpless and upset. • She may have repressed anger that no one knows of until it leaks out in undesirable and passive-aggressive ways. A nice girl who's also a good nanny provides appropriate empathy, warmth and support to your child - especially during challenging moments.
A successful nanny is not only a good child caregiver, but is also someone who naturally adapts to your family.
• Assumptions and expectations about how things should be done is different for everyone. Every family has a "culture." • Knowing the culture of your family requires a clear view of your own personality, communication styles and unexamined standards. • Without this knowledge about yourself and your family, what initially seems like a good fit with a nanny may devolve into frustration and acrimony as conflicts arise.
These issues are relevant to your nanny selection no matter your child's age, and they are not obvious.
Our proprietary assessment process helps predict whether your candidate is likely to exhibit the psychological skills and personality features that manifest in positive caregiving and compatibility with your family.
You'll notice the difference
We conduct an extensive combination of specialized tests that measure both conscious and unconscious aspects of personality, including qualities specific to good childcare. Then, we analyze the information collected from you and your candidate(s) to provide you with valuable feedback.
Peace of Mind
A well-chosen nanny can provide the peace of mind you crave, with a smooth-running household that makes parenting look and feel easy.
