Winner: The Nanny Connection
The Nanny Connection opened its doors in Hudson in 2004 with the goal of finding qualified local nannies for local families needing full- or part-time child care. Since then, its services have expanded to include an on-call babysitting service, nanny share and summer nanny placements, as well as a la carte background screening, business back-up care and event care. One of the largest nanny placement agencies in Ohio, The Nanny Connection is a member of the Association of Premier Nanny Agencies.
Pink launched as a newborn service agency 17 years ago. In order to continue to support its clients and their changing needs, the company’s care extended to include nanny services for children of all ages: full- and part-time, newborn care, sitters, mother’s helper and wedding/event care.
