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

Nanny Spotlight

Nanny Spotlight Brenda

Featured Nanny - National Nanny Recognition Week 2016

"Brenda has been with our family since March of this year. Quite simply, our family would not survive without her. She is loving, kind, generous, patient and puts up with all the craziness that goes with having a 10 month old and three dogs. She comes in each morning with a smile and a hug and ends the day in the same way. She adores our daughter and Maddie adores Brenda. It is the little things - the picture updates throughout the day, the video chats and her ability to take initiative to make all of our lives easier.

We love Brenda tremendously and are so incredibly thankful she is in our lives."

Mat, Jenn and Maddie

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
