Orange County Nanny Service


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: 

– Pick your needs:  services offered include on-call nannies, part-time nannies, full-time nannies, summer nannies, after school nannies, and parent’s night out babysitters.

–  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.

The Cost 

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.

The Reviews

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.

Can you believe it’s almost September!?!  First day of school outfits, packed lunches, backpacks full of crisp new folders and freshly sharpened pencils, and a clean slate of academic opportunity!  Varsity Tutors is here to help ease your student back into the school year and to help them put their smartest foot forward.

Is your child in a large class size at school?  Would s/he benefit from some added personal one-on-one attention to help them through some of their more challenging subjects?

Serving all of the Los Angeles Metro area (which includes Orange County), Varsity Tutors works closely with students and their families to provide elite, one-on-one tutoring instruction that helps students reach their academic goals.  To start, they assess the specific student’s needs, select the best fitting tutor, and then monitor the student’s progress over time.

Varsity Tutors emphasize a positive learning atmosphere through engaging, personalized lessons, presented in the most easy to understand way to keep the students motivated on their road to success.

They are serious about the screening and qualification process when selecting their tutors, looking for:

Exceptional teaching skills demonstrated during thorough, in-person interview

Demonstration of expert-level knowledge of subjects during interview

Excellent communication skills

Ability to develop and teach individualized learning plans

High test scores (they verify them)

High grades (they verify them, too!)

Prior teaching and mentoring skills or credential

Background check

Friendly and personable demeanor

They have turned down potential tutors with perfect test scores because they weren’t effective enough at communicating difficult concepts in an easy to understand manner!

What I love is you can scroll through the available tutors on their site and see their picture, read a personal message from them and learn about their educational background to get a feel for your tutor before you meet them.

Then your Tutor will come to you in the comfort of your own home, or your can choose to meet at a library or anywhere else you find convenient.
