Kristie Cunningham is the founder of Need A New Nanny Yesterday, LLC. She has been in this profession for over a decade. During the COVID pandemic, she decided there was definitely a need in the area for a moderately priced nanny agency. It saddened her to see families scrambling to find childcare when the schools and daycares had to shut down.

Kristie understands the importance of having reliable childcare to lean on. But for some, wanting the best childcare and being able to afford the best childcare is an issue. So in 2022 she decided to open Need A New Nanny Yesterday, in hopes of making it more affordable for all families to hire a nanny from a reputable nanny agency.

Kristie has a great understanding of what it takes to be both a professional nanny and a professional agency owner. In her 20’s she started working as a professional nanny for a family with 5 children. She worked for this family for 4.5 years. From there she went on to be a house manager and part-time nanny for a another amazing family for 5 years. They often would say, “Kristie is the glue that holds our family together.”

Throughout the years she has paid close attention to what it takes to run a reliable nanny agency. She loved the agency business so much that she eventually volunteered as a nanny/client recruiter.

Bringing nannies and clients together was so rewarding to her. It was here that she decided that it was time to start her very own agency.

Kristie is the type person who works very hard to deliver exactly what her clients need. She takes pride in her work, because her work is her passion.

She is devoted to helping others have the best nanny experience possible. She also values the nannies she hires at her agency. Whether working with the nanny or with the client, her goal is to do what is best for everyone involved.

Nanny Requirements

Our agency requires all of our nannies to have the minimum of a high school diploma. The majority of our nannies have a college degree, and speak multiple languages. Before bringing in a new nanny to our childcare team, we speak with each of their childcare related references.

It is a requirement that our childcare providers have at least two years of experience in the childcare profession. Each nanny has passed a criminal background check.

Your health and safety is very important to us, therefore we require our nannies to hold a current CPR certification and follow CDC guidelines in regards to the Covid Vaccine.

We take it personally when selecting the perfect candidate for your family and would not have it any other way. Your children are your everything and we want for you to feel excited about the nanny you chose.

Let’s face it, all of you will be spending a lot of time with each other and we hope to send you someone that eventually feels like bonus family.

Have you ever thought about hiring a nanny and wondered if it were truly worth it or not? Yes, there are numerous childcare options out there, but are they an ideal fit for you and your growing family? Sure there are private and in-home daycares, but will your children be getting the one on one attention they deserve?

Having a nanny means your little ones needs will be catered to. If they are feeling under the weather, you can avoid missing a day of work and feel confident knowing your children are in the best of care. Your nanny will be able to tailor every moment of the day to your child’s needs which is such a comforting feeling as a parent!

Your little one will have less exposure to illnesses being passed around, and you will have input on the activities and playgroups they are involved in.

It is also great to have a nanny, because you will be able to create your own personal schedule along with your children’s. This is very helpful, especially during the baby and toddler years. Many families have their nanny arrive early enough to feed and dress their little ones, allowing you to get ready for work, without feeling rushed in the morning.

It works the same way in the evening. You know your nanny has everything under control and all you need to do is come home to the ones you love the most and enjoy your downtime. Many nannies are happy to make dinner for your children, bathe them, and get them ready for bed. Think of it as a preventative to the bewitching hour!!!

Lucky you will have plenty of time to come home to cuddles for the rest of the evening. You could say nannies really help take the edge off of being a parent. You can depend on them to make your evenings much more relaxing.

If you have school aged children, you will have a trusted driver to take them to and from after school activities. At this stage of the game, your nanny takes on more of a house managers role.

They will grow with your family and take on responsibilities such as grocery shopping, running errands, and prepping dinner.

Plain and simple, having a nanny makes everything easier!
