Child Care Services
Whoever said it takes a village to raise a child wasn’t kidding! Allow the Ivory Agency to be your village. We specialize in matching experienced, compassionate childcare professionals to families with children. With our childcare services, you can ensure your children receive the individualized care and attention they need to live healthy, happy, and fulfilling lives.
Whether you’re looking for a full-time or live-in nanny, occasional babysitter, governess, or newborn specialist, we’re here to help. We believe that you shouldn’t settle for anything less than the best when it comes to caring for your children. Therefore, we’ll match you to a professional you and your children will absolutely adore.
The primary goal of our childcare services is to alleviate some of the stress that comes with raising children and ensure your life as a parent is both exciting and enjoyable. Let’s take a closer look at the types of childcare services we offer.
A nanny can live in or out of your home and provide personalized childcare services to your family. Our nannies are qualified and experienced individuals who have a true passion for children. Many of them have an educational background in early childhood education or a related field and have spent years perfecting their craft of childcare.
If you hire a nanny, you can expect them to partner with you and your spouse to raise your children. They’ll attend to your children’s physical, emotional, intellectual, and social needs and make sure they are constantly met. You can count on a nanny to handle a plethora of childcare related tasks like preparing meals and snacks, keeping playrooms tidy and organized, and assisting with homework or other educational activities.
They may also drive your children to school, play dates, and extracurricular activities and help with their morning and/or evening routines. They’ll model a positive behavior and help your children learn how to follow rules and resolve conflicts. Keep in mind that your nanny’s exact responsibilities will be based on the ages of your children, your personal requirements, and a number of other factors.
In the event you don’t need a full-time nanny but could use one during the summers when your children are off from school or when you’re traveling, we can help as well. Just let us know what your specific needs are and we’ll match you the perfect nanny.
If your children’s education is a top priority, you may benefit from a governess. A governess can assist with all of your child’s education needs at home. While they have many of the same duties as a nanny, their main focus is on educating children. They also have extensive experience in tutoring or teaching.
With a governess by your side, you can ensure your children are receiving the support they need to complete their homework, study for tests, and excel in their educational endeavors. A governess may also organize educational activities outside of the home like trips to museums and art galleries. Essentially, they oversee the informal and formal education of your children.
A babysitter can be there for you any time you have a temporary childcare need. Unlike a nanny who may live in your home, a babysitter can come to your home and care for your children any time you have a business meeting, date night, kids-free vacation, or any other affair that prevents you from being at home. Also, a sitter isn’t usually involved in the physical, emotional, and intellectual development of your children on a daily basis.
In most cases, babysitters prepare simple meals, bathe children, play with them, and put them to bed. Many of our sitters are parents themselves and know exactly what it takes to keep your children safe, happy and entertained while you’re out. Whether you need a babysitter every week or every once in a while, we’ll be able to find the perfect match.
A new baby is one of life’s greatest blessings. However, having a baby comes with the challenge of adjusting to a new schedule and the demands of caring for a newborn. If you’re expecting or recently had a baby, our postpartum newborn specialists can make your transition into parenthood easier and more enjoyable.
In addition to helping with diapering, feeding, bathing, and creating a sleep schedule, a newborn specialist can offer lactation support as well as comfort and reassurance during the first several weeks and months of your baby’s life.
It’s important to note that newborn specialists are not responsible for taking care of the mother or any household duties that don’t pertain to the baby or nursery. They are typically hired on a temporary basis and are only used until the parents are able to handle newborn-related tasks on their own.
Rest assured our newborn specialists have years of training and experience in newborn care. They’re also certified in CPR and first aid for your peace of mind. If you’d like to alleviate some of the stress that comes with caring for a newborn, a newborn specialist may be a worthwhile investment.
Our Childcare Providers are the Best of the Best
While our childcare providers have different responsibilities, they have several things in common. First and foremost, they have an understanding, patient, and cheerful demeanor. They genuinely love children and will treat your children as if they are their own.
Also, our childcare providers have undergone a rigorous screening and training process and can handle emergencies calmly and effectively. They will communicate with you regularly and will make sure you’re informed daily occurrences and are always updated on your children.
Our childcare providers have helped many families alleviate some of the pressures that come with raising children. If you’re wondering how you’re going to manage all of the duties that come with children on your own, know that you don’t have to. Our childcare providers will love your children and do everything in their power to make sure they’re happy, healthy, and safe.
