As franchise owner of College Nannies and Tutors, together with our great team, we have been providing customized childcare and tutoring since November 2004. Our son and daughter have been recipients of our terrific nannies during their toddler and school aged years to meeting with our role model tutors to help their current high school studies.
At College Nannies and Tutors I enjoy working with our families to understand how we can serve their changing needs, as well as with our management team who recruit, match and train our role models who provide exceptional care and tutoring. I enjoy meeting new families through our partnerships, and I learn daily from our staff, nannies and tutors.
