A Personalized and Caring Approach to Finding a Nanny!

amy2Celebrating 10 Years of Matching Genuine Caregivers with Bay Area Families!

Welcome to Genuine Nannies! We are a team of women who truly understand what a parent is looking for in childcare. We have been successfully matching families in the Bay Area with wonderful nannies since 2007. We don't just send you nannies from a database, instead we come to your home to get to know your family better then conduct a personalized search based on your family’s specific needs, family dynamics and personalities. All of our nannies go through a stringent screening process and it doesn't stop there. Each candidate is tailored specifically for your families unique needs. We are there through the matching process as well as throughout your partnership. Our combined experience as mothers, business women, former nannies, preschool teachers and having had in-home care ourselves helps us make a connection that will last.

Experience - Reputation - Credibility


Amy Osborn – Owner & Placement Consultant

I am a mother of two young boys and owner of Genuine Nannies. As a mother, and former professional nanny for over 8 years, I understand that a great nanny is not just someone that satisfies the hours and days of the week, but someone that grows with your family. I truly understand what it takes to have the best interest of the family in mind. Over the years I have matched hundreds of nannies and families and I look forward to each and every family meeting.

Blessed to be a mother to a busy three year old, and a former professional nanny with 11 years experience, I truly understand the needs of both working parents and nannies. I am an advocate for the nanny profession—dedicated to understand the specific ingredients needed to craft the most ideal partnership. It is my goal to successfully match nannies with families who can grow together in a positive and fulfilling working environment. I am honored to play a part in such a rewarding career.

I highly recommend Adrianna and Genuine Nannies!

“I worked with Adrianna who helped my husband and I find a nanny for our daughter... it was clear that Adrianna knew what we were looking for and didn’t waste our time and energy on people that were a mediocre or poor fit. What I love about Adrianna is how detail oriented and passionate she is about her work... She treated us like we were her only client which goes to show just how dedicated she is. I highly recommend Adrianna and Genuine Nannies!” Read More

Luckily I found Genuine Nannies. Amy Osborn and Grace Boye responded immediately, lining up great candidates and interviews within a few days. They were professional and accessible throughout the entire process." Read More
