“Our time with Debbie was brief, but positive in every way. We originally sent her email wherein she responded that same day. We then met her at my office for an interview. She made such an impression that we invited her to have a playdate with my children, who are 2 and 6 years old. We have had nannies for our children for over 6 years and have seen the good and the bad. She was actually the first nanny we invited to meet them after having spoken to and met approximately 35 other nannies. When she arrived at our house, she immediately took an interest in the children. She was very attentive and asked questions to see how we would like her to care for our children. Following the playdate, we offered her a full-time nanny position with our family. At her first day and each day thereafter she was punctual, pleasant, couteous, professional and respectful. The children were her priority. Through no fault of her own, our prior nanny (who had been with us for 1 1/2 years) advised that she was no longer relocating (which was the reason we were looking for a nanny). After much consideration, we felt it was best for the children to be with the nanny they had known. During our brief time with Debbie, it was truly a pleasure to have her in our house and as our nanny. Please feel free to contact us with any questions. Sincerely, Stacy”

Communicating with nannies and the families that need in home childcare has been a one-to-one conversation for Candi Wingate, founder of Nannies4Hire.com and Care4Hire.com for the past 15 years. NannySupportGroup.com now changes that conversation to a one-to-many with a new online community forum. Bringing a traditionally isolated employee into a Virtual Community Center is the latest brainchild of Candi Wingate, whose new book, The Nanny Factor: A Parent’s Guide to Finding the Right Nanny for Your Family came out on October 1, 2010. NannySupportGroup.com, is a free service to Nannies who want to connect with each other, no matter where they live and work. The password protected forum allows individuals to access a like-minded community in their free time.
“While being a nanny is a wonderful and fulfilling career, it can also be a very lonely one for people in the profession,” states Candi Wingate, an internationally renowned Nanny expert and author. “A Nanny often works alone caring for children and their only adult contact is with their employer. Not a great situation when questions arise, which they always do in this business,” concludes Candi, who knows both sides of the Nanny equation, as a former Nanny herself and a working mother who hires her own Nannies.
Nannies4Hire.com and Candi Wingate have been giving advice to nannies, families and the media for over a decade. Candi is the President and founder of a group of award winning and nationally recognized online databases that provide exceptional services: Nannies4Hire.com, Babysitters4Hire.com and Care4Hire.com.
