WHO WE ARE
CincyNanny is the place for professional nannies and the families that hire them, in the Greater Cincinnati area. Nannies are gathering for play dates, education, and social events. Families are finding resources and meeting caregivers to join their family team.
With the goal of elevating knowledge and standard of the local nanny, we are advocating for the profession. With a desire to support the family on their important search for elite care we provide for families. All this, ultimately, to enrich the lives of children.
From community to coaching, jobs board to placement, CincyNanny has services to meet families and nannies where they are at.
As a proud member of the International Nanny Association, we uphold their standards of professionalism!
HOW WE BEGAN
After attending a professional nanny conference hosted by the International Nanny Association, Greta Schraer was connected with supreme professionals in the nanny industry. She was extremely inspired and longed to see the same happen closer to home. She knew a handful of nannies and went in search of more. CincyNanny began in an effort to develop community with other professionals.
In fall of 2009, CincyNanny hosted our first event: a National Nanny Recognition Week Dinner. Events like these have been happening in cities all across the country since 1998. We used the NNRW event to gather nannies to see where they would like the community to go. All were excited for the support, professional guidance, and industry connections. Each nanny was honored for her unique impact in the profession.
CincyNanny quickly grew with more and more nannies connecting online first through a resource blog and then a private online forum. Nannies met up for play dates and local workshops. Families also became aware of this resource and sought it out for their own quality care. The Jobs Board was created as an option for nannies and families to connect with each other. Word of mouth has allowed CincyNanny to grow organically and quickly without any advertising. When you find a good thing, you talk about it.
To date CincyNanny has been matched countless nannies and families in positions, while answering questions, and sharing expertise. We honor both the elite nannies and the quality families we’ve represented. We have hosted dozens of play dates, traveled to a handful of conferences, and developed valuable friendships. All the while, encouraging the utmost professionalism by the industry standard.
