Help! I Need Somebody - Not Just Anybody
By MissMagpie on November 10, 2010
Parents today have many options when it comes to childcare: daycare centers, babysitters, au pairs and nannies. There are many factors that can go into deciding which is right for your family. What is most important is finding someone you can trust with your children so you can feel comfortable when you head out the door each day.
The Nanny Factor
You may have heard of Vermont Nanny Connection (VNC), as Vermont's oldest and most experienced childcare placement agency, they have been around awhile. But what you may not know is that Hope Moulton purchased the business in June 2010. And since then things have been going swimmingly:

You know you are good hands with Hope because as a mother of two young children herself, she understands the importance of high quality, dependable childcare. She supports families throughout the interview process, the drawing up of the contract between nanny and family and she continues to check in with the family and nanny to assure a good match. She wants her families and nannies to be happy!
Wanted: Mrs. Doubtfire, Maria, Alice, Mary Poppins -- all of the above! Because finding the perfect nanny is a critical decision, Vermont Nanny invests the time and resources to make ideal match. In addition to a thorough screening, their nannies have to have at least 3 years of childcare experience and be 18 years old to prequalify to be a VNC nanny. Many of their nannies have taken courses in college on childhood development, child psychology and elementary education. Sample Bio of a Vermont Nanny Connection Nanny:
