Nanny Types

  • Nanny: Our Dallas / Ft. Worth nannies are caring, highly experienced, and professional caregivers. Our nannies receive weekly curriculum from MBF, encourage your children’s development, and engage them with games, arts and crafts, etc. Our nannies’ background is a combination of education, nanny, and/or teaching experience.
  • Nanny Manager: Dallas / Ft. Worth nanny managers may also transport your children to/from activities or school, organize after-school activities, run errands such as grocery shopping, organize, and/or assist with basic meal prep (chopping, boiling water, pre-heating oven, assembling ingredients for easy preparation).
  • Family Assistants/ Managers: When children are a bit older, and true “childcare” responsibilities have dwindled, these roles tend to revolve around household management, driving kids to activities, supervising homework, errands, etc.
  • Rotational Nanny (ROTA): When a family requires 24-hour coverage, multiple ROTA Nannies tag-team, working 7-10 days at a time. Typically there is a lead nanny, and depending on how many children there are, 1-3 nannies per shift. Learn more about this option.
  • Nanny Share: Two families come to Mom’s Best Friend with a unified request (we are unable to match families). The families typically have a total of 2-3 children, and have chosen this option for reasons including proximity, socialization, and cost savings (the hourly pay and placement fee are both split).
  • Child Educator: These specialized, dedicated in-home instructors provide private instruction. Learn more.
