As mothers, former nannies, and placement specialists we understand how important finding the right long-term match is and we’ll make it easy as possible for you.

We’ll do the tedious and time-consuming work of screen through dozens of candidates for your position, hand-pick the best available childcare professionals for you to interview, and once you’ve met the right person for your family, we’ll guide you through the hiring process and beyond. Our process—refined and simplified over the last 25 years—results in long-lasting placements for hundreds of Colorado families each year. We have the experience you need, when you need it most.

Nannies
Your Partner in Parenting

Experienced nannies are our speciality. Our nanny placement service is ideal for parents who have younger children (newborn to school age) and need care at least 30+ hours per week for at least 6 months, but ideally for the next few years. Nannies are experienced childcare providers who are invested in your child's well-being, development and education. It's a nanny's responsibility to provide structure, balance and consistency. Together, with you, they’ll develop a daily schedule, plan educational and engaging activities, they’ll prepare the kids’ meals, help with their laundry, keep the house tidy and more. And while most nannies in Colorado are live-out (they don’t live in your home), we also place live-in nannies upon request. Good nannies are worth their weight in gold. Get started today…you won’t regret it!

Nanny Managers
Part Nanny, Part House Manager

In response to our clients’ request for consistent, caring long-term support, even when their children were in school, full or part-time, we created the nanny manager position. A nanny manager through ABC will care for your children when they are not in school (i.e. half days, after school, sicks days, breaks) with all the zest of a great nanny, because they’re just that: experienced nannies looking for a bit more variety in their career. But they’ll also assist with household chores like a household manager would, running errands, grocery shopping, assisting with family laundry, meal prep, organization projects and more when they are in school. Is there anything better for growing families? We think not.

Family Assistants
An Assistant for Busy Parents

A family assistant: like a personal assistant for busy parents who also does childcare and household chores. Yes, they exist, and they’re awesome! Really, what busy parent hasn’t dreamed about hiring someone to help with the day-to-day chores required to keep their family, and their life, organized? Family Assistants can research the appropriate camps and classes for the kids, make family travel arrangements, prepare snacks and meals, run errands, and since most are experienced or former nannies, they’ll also help care for the kids, their transportation, activities and more. You decide what duties are most important—we’ll find the ideal person for the job.
