At LifeWorx, we will help you find and hire a nanny that can meet your family’s specific requirements. Each private nanny we place with a family has at least two years of nanny experience. All are fluent in English and are prepared to adapt to the needs of any home. When you hire a nanny from our agency, they’ll provide a warm and loving environment for your children. They are happy to help with errands and household chores like laundry and cleaning. As responsible drivers with reliable vehicles, you can have full confidence in them, trusting them to get your children ready for school, drive them to and from activities and play-dates, and assist with homework. They have been trained to sharpen the motor skills of your newborn or toddler or aid in teaching your children a new language including Spanish, Italian, and French. Many private nannies are also CPR and First-Aid certified and experienced with special needs children.

Cc L. (January 2016)

"I can't say enough about how wonderful this team have been to work with. I needed a new nanny on short notice and they sent me qualified candidates who were by far the most impressive I saw from any other agency or referral.  Efficient, professional, accommodating and they delivered, you can't ask for more than that.  I would not hesitate to recommend them and they are head and shoulders above other agencies I worked with.
Great job!"

"I am so happy to have found Brian at Lifeworx.. After searching through many agencies for a nannying job I was just about to give up until he set me up on my first interview with a family and I got the job. It was exactly what I was looking for! I'm still employed at this job a year later .. I just called him 3 days ago telling him I had a free day and I was looking for something and again went on my first interview and found JUST what I was looking for. He responds quick and is very personable. Would recommend Lifeworx to anyone!"

Barbara has been able to find the perfect match for me every time. Highly, highly recommend. I've been working with her quite a while.

Derly N. (2020)

This the second time over 7 years that they help me find the perfect family to work for. They listened to what my needs and experience and paired me up with the perfect match. I would recommend them to anyone.

Jessica Schilling (2020)

Nearly seven years ago, we got our nanny - Derly - through LifeWorx. At the time I was pregnant with our second child and had a 5 yo. Today, I have an 12 yo daughter and a 6 yo son - and Derly has been an incredible part of raising them to become such wonderful children. She brings warmth, caring, and support. She has taught them to be great people - and I am always amazed at the special way she has of helping them to learn manners, eat well, do their homework, sports - all with a smile and so much love. In turn, they love her back completely and listen to her...more than they listen to us!! I guess I shouldn’t be surprised since she raised two remarkable sons Of her own who now attend college. Thank you LifeWorx for bringing this wonderful person into our lives. She was - and will always be - a second parent to our children. I know you will pair her with a new, special family who will get you experience her love and caring as they raise their children

Juliana C. (2018)

Katie and Barbara was amazing, I did an interview with them, and 3 days later I was going to an interview and getting hired. It was a fast and good process, everything really well spoken!!
Thank you ladies.

Kariyma B. (2016)

My experience with LifeWorx has been great. They've helped me to find an excellent nanny position within 2 weeks of being with them. They were extremely thorough with their selection process. Prior to deciding to an in person interview they did a phone interview and ran a background check which I had no problem with. My recruiter Elisa was professional when we did the in person interview and also open to my questions about job placement. The day after meeting Elisa I got calls from LifeWorx's agents Barbara and Bal about jobs, something I didn't experience with the other agencies I had previously signed up with. By the following week I had great interviews lined up and then an offer. Although the selection process for LifeWorx was in depth it was well worth it.

My wife and I worked with Barbara to find a nanny for our son in Northern Westchester. She was extremely helpful throughout the process and I would highly recommend working with her! Thanks, Barbara!

    How much do your services cost?

    Our agency places full time or part-time nannies in your home. The placement fee is 20 percent of the nanny’s gross annual compensation.

    How do you screen your nannies?

    Each nanny goes through 3 in-depth interviews and provides references from 2 past professional in-home clients. We can proudly say that in our 15 years of service, we have never had a client report neglect, abuse or theft by one of our nannies. Our standard is to choose from among the top 10% of nannies who apply to LifeWorx.

    How does your process work?

    You can get started with a phone call or visit to one of our locations. After assessing your family’s needs, we provide you with 2-3 ideal nannies. You can then interview the candidates you select if you wish. From there, the schedule is up to your agreement with the nanny. They can begin as soon as you want. It often takes 1-3 weeks to find the perfect solution and we guarantee that any candidate bio we send has been fully screened by LifeWorx.

    What is your guarantee?

    Each of our placements comes with a one-week, 100% money back guarantee. In addition, we offer three-month replacement guarantees if the nanny does not work out. (see details)
