We elevate the nanny industry by setting the highest standards and supporting parents, nannies and agencies. We certify nannies so parents have greater confidence when hiring.
What we offer…
The US Nanny Association’s National Nanny Standards provide a comprehensive approach to childcare and child development that enable nannies to successfully use and adapt caregiving techniques.
The US Nanny Association certifications recognize quality training and work experience to empower nannies who demonstrate their knowledge, skills and commitment to quality childcare.

What Our Members Say
I met so many wonderful people by volunteering with the US Nanny Association. Not only did I work with an amazing group of leaders, I found my business partner and together, we started a nanny training program. The US Nanny Association is a wonderful organization and I appreciate their commitment to support nannies and parents.
Newborn Care Instructor
Membership with the US Nanny Association allowed me to expand professionally. I was provided with leadership opportunities to help grow the organization and even hosted live events during the Conference. The Association is a great way to get involved, advance my career and collaborate with others in our industry.

Finding a great nanny family is important and the first step is to have a strong resume that highlights your childcare experience and skills.
With so many titles for in-home childcare providers, parents, nannies and sitters often confuse the different job titles and duties.
Although there were no medical signs of my baby ever being in danger – I always knew something wasn’t quite right. But I never admitted it to myself.
