In today’s world of being a mama, every mommy I know has a need at some point for childcare…whether it’s for a few hours every once in a while, or 6-10 consecutive hours a day during the work week.
Let me introduce you to College Nannies & Tutors of Tustin, Lake Forest and Surrounding Communities, a customized Orange County nanny service, helping you find trusted nannies, babysitters or tutors.
I had the opportunity to talk with Jeremy, the owner of College Nannies & Tutors (CNT), one of Tiny Oranges’ new sponsors, and we chatted all about the fabulous services they provide to families. As a dad of two, Jeremy’s team motto is, “If they’re not good role models for his kids, they’re not good for your kids.”
Jeremy and his team are very picky about who they hire, as each applicant goes through a thorough screening process. All of the nannies that College Nannies employs are background checked, CPR/First Aid Certified and are employed by the company. The nannies are covered under their insurance, are paid by the company, you don’t have to do anything!
As you can see by their Yelp reviews, families who have used this service have been very happy with the great nannies and tutors this company provides.
Orange County Nanny Service
When is the last time you had to find a babysitter or nanny? Think about everything that goes into that process. Choosing someone who you connect with, trust, and can count on. Someone who is CPR/First Aid Certified. Someone who will respect the boundaries and rules you set for your children. Someone who is available during the time you need them. And, most importantly, someone who connects with your kids.
I find that this process can be tedious and stressful. How about you?
College Nannies can do all of this for you. No, it is not too good to be true!
They offer their families a complete set of placement options and on-call child care services specifically tailored to your needs and the needs of your kids.
You can let College Nannies handle all the details of finding a qualified nanny or babysitter for your family…and they employ them directly, so you can enjoy hassle free child care with no worries. They actually prefer to call nannies and babysitters “role models,” because they believe in matching you with the best possible role model for your children.
When I first heard this, I was curious as to how this company would find the best child care provider for my kids. How would they understand what I want and who I want?
How it Works
The first step is to call and schedule a family meeting with College Nannies & Tutors. Someone will visit your home, meet you and your children, and talk in detail about what your needs are. This really helps everyone to feel more comfortable from the start.
Jeremy said that College Nannies & Tutors is really, really particular about finding the BEST fit for your family. They offer permanent nannies ranging from 15-40 hours a week. If you need a nanny for your newborn or toddler this is a great fit. Or, if you have 5-14 year old their “after school” nannies are perfect for your family. Of course, don’t forget date night, sick days or holidays – their “on call” services will give you peace of mind.
What you can expect from a College Nannies childcare provider:
– All nannies are Background Checked, CPR & First Aid Certified and go through a thorough screening process.
– Nannies also receive ongoing education, including access to on-line training courses, videos, print resources, resource directories, the most up-to-date tools available, and the ongoing professional guidance of the College Nannies and Tutors team.
– Nannies and role models will watch children from 4 weeks old, up to the teen years.
My next question was price. And, here’s what I learned. The nanny is legally employed and paid hourly through College Nannies & Tutors. The hourly rate is all inclusive – meaning they handle all state and federal taxes, unemployment, FICA, Medicare, Workers Compensation, general and professional liability insurance, and non-owned car insurance.
(Holy moley, that’s a lot! And, so important! I find this to be a huge peace of mind, because then I don’t have to worry about these details.)
The hourly rate also includes payroll services and ongoing professional guidance. They bill on a bi-weekly basis; you will also have 24/7 secure access to your family’s detailed timesheets through their online family resource center.
And since every family’s needs are different, you will need to contact College Nannies & Tutors directly for information about your specific needs and to receive a more detailed quote and rate range.
And yes, they have tutoring! Jeremy explained that all tutoring is one-on-one, typically starting at 5th grade, and then through high school; think English, math, ACT and SAT prep, study skills, homework help, and reading and writing. You can have the tutor come to your house, or choose to meet at a local library or study-friendly environment. All tutors have at least one year of experience.
What you can expect from a College Tutor:
– Tutors are current college students, college graduates and teachers who are at the top of their classes and chosen professions.
– Tutors will design a customized learning plan that aligns with each student’s school curriculum; they also have access to a variety of other educational resources.
– Most students meet with their College Tutor 1-3 times per week for a 60 minute session; however, many homework help students may choose to meet for 90 minutes per session.
– They bill at a flat hourly rate for all tutoring services. Rates will vary depending on your student’s unique needs, so please contact them directly for more specific information.
I love reading reviews – there’s something to be said about reading from other parents about their personal experiences that really make a difference to me. Check out College Nannies & Tutors on Yelp.
