FURTHERMORE, WE KNOW & CELEBRATE THAT THERE IS NOT JUST ONE COOKIE-CUTTER TYPE OF FAMILY.
WE PROUDLY SUPPORT AND WORK WITH FAMILIES, PARENTS & CHILDREN FROM ALL WALKS OF LIFE.
We love to learn! What makes you happy and thrive? What makes your family flourish? What unique set of skills does a nanny bring to your home? We live for the joy of witnessing a child’s “Aha moment.” Our highly educated nannies bring creativity to the table to foster an environment of learning. We conduct home visits and phone consultations to learn more about our families. We call references to learn more about our nannies. We believe in always being curious. We believe in teaching children life skills to become independent thinkers and problem solvers.
We are committed to being discreet, honest, and dedicated. Even when a nanny calls out sick, the founder of Educated Nannies has been known to step in! We are proud members of the International Nanny Association, and we have a team of experts to answer all of your questions. We only refer nannies who have a vetted history of being responsible, passionate about childcare, and trustworthy.
We value our families, their children and our nannies. We keep a positive attitude, and no request is too big or too small. We embrace each day with a grateful heart. Gratitude is contagious! An attitude of gratitude creates less stress and happier people. We are thankful for each opportunity to serve our community.
Raising children is a huge responsibility, but it doesn’t have to be so serious all the time. Things are going to go wrong and sometimes the best way to handle it is with a little bit of humor. We invite nannies to bring their silly side into a home. Our nannies keep the laughter flowing by reading books in theatrical voices, playing games, and sharing all those adorable photos with you through out the day. Isn’t a child’s giggle just the best thing ever? We all could laugh a little more in life.
We believe the best relationships are built on trust. We are transparent and honest about our process, and we follow through with our words. Our doors are always open for questions. Our team is made up of reliable and trustworthy individuals. We keep information confidential, and we have your best interest in our hearts.
THROUGH THICK & THIN. A Testimonial….
“I called Ryan in a time of severe need. I had a 4-month old who wasn’t sleeping, a 5-year old who desperately needed my attention and I was going through post-partum depression. I was requesting a miracle —A miracle is what I got. Kate is literally in my phone as “Kate Lifesaver.” Educated Nannies saved my family. It sounds very intense but when you’re in it… it is. Kate spent 4 nights with us that week. My daughter was sleep-trained by the third night thanks to Kate. From there on out — pure bliss. My family is very happy and we owe so much to Educated Nannies.”

Meet Ashley Heath
Ashley majored in psychology at Baylor University and worked as a social worker for two years before transitioning to a recruitment position at a market research company. This bright and bubbly woman worked as a nanny for three years and continues to feel deep satisfaction from engaging with children. As a nanny, Ashley applied her psychology background and strong interest in child development to help the children she worked with process their emotions through play and conversation. Ashley has traveled to 14 countries, taught English in China, volunteered in Africa and has mentored at-risk youth. She moved to Los Angeles three years ago to exchange the grey skies of the Pacific Northwest for sunny Southern California.
If finding outstanding nannies who keep your kids laughing and learning all day was an olympic sport, Ashley would take the gold. Meet you on the podium in 2020, Ashley!
Meet Lindsey Dunn
