Nanny-search woes? Olive.You.Nanny is Milwaukee’s dream come true!
Worrying comes naturally to parents. “Is my baby sleeping enough?” “Is my toddler growing properly?” “Is my preschooler making friends?” “What’s that weird rash?” When it comes to hiring a nanny or a baby sitter, parents definitely do not want to worry. They want to know without doubt that they are leaving their cherished cherubs in hands as kind and loving as their own. Thank goodness for Olive.You.Nanny, a nanny placement agency that has just landed in Milwaukee, and has a seven- year track record of happy families in soon to be seven cities across the country— Chicago, Atlanta, Charlotte, St Louis, Orange County, Austin, and now Milwaukee.
After working as a nanny and with agencies for six years, founder Sarah Davis felt that she could do better. So, in 2005, she launched Olive.You.Nanny, infusing it with a key ingredient that other agencies lack—personal attention. Olive.You.Nanny boasts Davisʼ own nannying experience as a nanny, offering a unique perspective to parents who want the very best for their children. “We take the personal approach to finding a nanny,” Davis says. “We meet every family we work with in their home. We want to understand their needs and who it is they are looking for, to get to know each family so we can find the best candidates for them.” Since she began, Davis has also taken on the role as Mommy—three times over—further deepening her sympathy, compassion and understanding of the relationship between parents and their childcare providers.
Davis has joined forces with Milwaukee-based Christine Clark to enter the Milwaukee market. Clark has a degree in Educational Studies from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and a graduate degree in Elementary Education from Cardinal Stritch University and over 15 years of experience working with children, including five years as a professional nanny/house manager in Milwaukee and 5 years as a Preschool Teacher in Milwaukee. “We’re thrilled Christine will be representing Olive.You.Nanny in Milwaukee. With her extensive experience, she’s well equipped to help place nannies with local families to form a lasting partnership,” Davis says. “I’m so happy to be part of the Olive.You.Nanny team to continue to build upon the success the agency is experiencing in other parts of the country. I know firsthand what it takes to be a successful nanny and look forward to helping nannies and families come together,” Clark said.
But Olive.You.Nanny doesn’t just have Davisʼ and Clarkʼs combined experience behind it. It also has the experience and education of its seven city strong staff. All have worked as nannies and all hold degrees in education. And then there are the fantastic, caring nannies themselves, the meticulously selected group of dedicated people who truly shine here. What makes them stand out from the norm? Olive.You.Nanny takes great care in hiring—and takes on all the legwork that busy parents don’t have time for.
The extensive and thorough investigation into an Olive.You.Nanny candidate’s experience and work history begins with a telephone interview and basic requirements, and continues with in-depth face-to-face interviews. Olive.You.Nanny conducts criminal checks in every state and country, as well as motor vehicle checks for tickets, accidents and suspensions. On top of all that, every candidate must be CPR and First Aid certified. Olive.You.Nanny nannies are available to work full-time live in, full time live out, part time, temporary, as a nanny share, or simply as a permanent occasional sitter (date night!). Once the preliminary screenings are complete, Olive.You.Nanny provides families with a ready-to-use packet that even includes interview questions.
Milwaukee parents can breathe a sigh of relief. They can lay their childcare worries aside and put their trust—and their little kiddos—in the capable and loving hands of Olive.You.Nanny.
