College Nannies, Sitters, and Tutors are Also Role Models for Kids

By S. Mathur

College Nannies, Sitters and Tutors was founded in 2001 in Minnesota and quickly became a reliable source for families with children needing caregivers or tutors. The nannies, sitters and tutors are highly qualified and have been through a screening process. Just as important, they're also educated role models, who help families run their lives smoothly. Role models are chosen from among current college students, college graduates and certified teachers.

Early on, College Nannies also pioneered a new way to match families' needs with reliable resources. The key is listening to the needs of the family, according to Amisha Sinha, who is co-owner of College Nannies, Sitters and Tutors in MsKinney, TX, along with her husband.

"Before any family signs up for child care services, we conduct a complimentary family meeting with them at their home," Sinha said, "This allows us to meet and get to know everyone in the family, including the children, a little bit and gain a deeper understanding of each family's unique child care needs."

College Nannies offers in-home childcare, from occasional babysitting to full-time nannies. Nannies provide care on a regular and consistent basis. Once the family's requirements have been determined, a match is first sought among the nannies who are already on the staff. Until the perfect nanny is found families can call upon the sitters for day and night care as needed. There's also the MySitters app which allows families to book the sitter of their choice online. College Nannies offers both reliable service and peace of mind for parents.

"They have the assurance of knowing each sitter or nanny on the app has gone through a thorough interview and screening process with us and have been trained by us," Sinha said, "Each of our Role Models, what we call our nannies, sitters and tutors, is required to pass a national background screen plus provide two to three relevant and valid personal references. We match every family with a few sitters that we believe will be a good fit for them."

College Nannies, Sitters and Tutors offer services for families which can take their kids from the cradle to the college of their choice, according to Sinha. One-on-one tutoring services are focused on the needs of middle and high school students. Tutoring can be subject specific, covering geometry, physics, writing and Spanish, or it can help with test prep for the ACT/SAT. There are several cases where students have shown improved test scores or improved letter grades in school after participating in the tutoring programs.

College Nannies has a strong commitment to its employees as well as the families. For employees, the company handles payroll, employment taxes, liability insurance and Worker's Compensation policy.
