Thousands of Families and Nannies Across America Switch to the Internet to Find and Hire Nannies

Share Article offers a complete suite of online tools to simplify the process of finding a nanny

As the percentage of working parents sharply increases, so does the need for reliable nannies. In the past, parents seeking reliable nanny care for their children were left with meager options that left a lot to be desired: Finding a nanny through word-of-mouth can lead to dead ends; the limited space of a classified ad allows for only rudimentary, impersonal job descriptions; and taking the nanny agency route means plopping down large sums of cash.

Now at, a complete suite of online tools are available to help simplify the process of finding nannies online, cutting the costs — and headaches — associated with finding a reliable childcare professional. eNanny Source's groundbreaking Web site offers an affordable alternative for discriminating families searching for nannies. Free introductory memberships are offered, and full membership packages range between $98 for a basic, 30-day membership up to $149 for a comprehensive, 90-day membership that offers advanced searching, a criminal background check and even the ability to freeze your account so that you can use it again for free if you need to do another nanny search.

Since its inception in 2001, has distinguished itself by becoming the premier online destination for families seeking U.S.-based nannies. Founded by Steve Lampert, an entrepreneur who already had a successful track record of running a traditional nanny agency, eNanny Source transforms even the most apprehensive parents into confident, savvy employers, armed with the same organizational tools and screening forms that are used in a real nanny agency. “The demographic of today's workforce continued to change dramatically as the popularity of the Web increased," explains Lampert. "With more and more parents going to work, I sought a way to harness the power of the Internet to make finding a nanny easy, convenient and extremely affordable."

Best of all, eNanny Source takes the guesswork out of finding a childcare professional. Parents can create multiple criteria for their nanny jobs, covering everything from driving, to smoking, to location of the job. Favorite candidates can be stored in a personal account, and families are notified daily when nannies matching their criteria are identified. The 90-day membership packages even come with a criminal background check, to ease fears about hiring nanny.

To ensure that only serious and dedicated nannies are using the system, eNanny Source offers a unique "Report Card" system, allowing users to send a report to management when nannies do not respond to inquiries from families. And, once a suitable nanny is found, members can use the exclusive e Nanny Source Nanny Success Kit, which provides interviewing and screening forms, as well as an employment contract used at actual nanny agencies.

As families have become more comfortable with the Internet, online nanny services have evolved to help families find in-home childcare without an expensive nanny agency. They have adapted tools from professional agencies to assist families in hiring a nanny safely and effectively. eNanny Source is at the forefront of these online services. Online nanny services now handle tens of thousands of families and nannies each year.


eNannySource was established in 2001 and has become the largest U.S. only online nanny service, working with tens of thousands of nannies and families each year. Its founder, Steve Lampert, owned one of the most prominent nanny agencies in the country for eleven years.
