Covenant Sitters are a group of professional Nannies, preschool /day care teachers, early childhood development / education students, nurses, elementary school teachers, grandmothers, mothers, and other loving, qualified, trustworthy adults. For occasional sitting, a telephone or personal introduction may be arranged per your request. We require all of our Sitters and Nannies to have some form of childcare education or experience. We also strongly recommend for all of our caregivers to have been certified in Infant/Child CPR and First Aid basics. For permanent part or full time Nanny placement, clients may interview each Sitter personally before carefully choosing a selected caregiver for their family.

Members of our staff are retired teachers, mothers, grandmothers, or former Nannies. The one characteristic that is common in all of our Sitters is their genuine love for working with children and their enthusiasm to become positive influences in your child’s life!
