Long-Term Childcare Services

Hire a Nanny

Your Partner in Parenting

A nanny is more than a childcare provider, and more than a babysitter, they are your partner in parenting.

A great nanny brings structure, balance and consistency. They’re invested in your child’s well-being, development and education. They’re also invested in supporting your family – including you.

You can count on them to follow your child’s daily schedule, research and plan educational, engaging activities, prepare the kid’s meals, do their laundry, keep the house tidy, and work alongside you to keep your life running smoothly.

Full-time or part-time, live-in or live-out, a great nanny is worth their weight in gold. 

Hire a Nanny Manager

Part Nanny, Part Household Helper

A family’s needs change as their kids grow and the support they need changes too. Once your child enters school, even part-time, the need for great childcare doesn’t go away but the duties change. In response to this growing need, we created the nanny manager role. 

This in-demand, household superstar will care for your children when they are not in school (half days, after school, sicks days, holidays, and breaks) with all the zest of a great nanny, because they’re just that: experienced nannies looking for a bit more variety in their career. They’ll also assist with household chores such as running errands, grocery shopping, assisting with family laundry, organization projects and more while the kids are in school. 

For busy parents, there are few things better than a Nanny Manager. 

Hire a Family Assistant

Tailor-Made Support for Busy Families

Imagine a life where your children are happy, your to-do list is a breeze, and you have time for what truly matters. With our family assistant services, it’s not just a dream – it’s a reality waiting to happen. 

Think of a family assistant as an experienced nanny who provides extra support around the home. These superstar nannies will happily provide engaging care, homework support, drive the kiddos to and from activities, do the children’s laundry, and more. In addition, you can count on your family assistant to coordinate appointments and manage the family calendar, run errands and keep the home organized, assist with meal planning and research camps, classes and more.

You decide what duties and responsibilities are most important and we’ll find the right person for the job. It’s tailor-made support for your busy family. 

Special Needs Childcare

Specialized Nanny Care for Special Kids

Searching for a dependable, personalized childcare solution for your special needs child? Hiring an experienced, compassionate nanny to help is the ideal solution for many families.

Our nannies understand every family is unique and every child has different needs. And while our caregivers are as diverse as the families they work for, they have one thing in common: a passion for helping all children grow and develop to their full potential. 

Many of our nannies have experience with non-medical care for children with developmental and physical delays, speech and language disorders, ADD/ADHD, children on the Autism Spectrum (ASD), with Down syndrome and more. They’ll work closely with you to understand your children’s needs (and will care for siblings too), routines and preferences, and to provide the care and support your family needs to thrive.

Join a Nanny Share

One Nanny - Two Families - Half the Cost

Are you considering a full-time nanny for your little one(s), but finding that the hourly compensation is outside of your childcare budget? We get it. But, you don’t have to give up on the idea of hiring a nanny altogether. Rather, consider forming a nanny share.

A nanny share is when two like-minded families, with similar needs, schedules and preferences, share the services of a single nanny. By sharing a nanny, families can split the cost of the nanny’s salary, benefits, and other expenses, making it an economical option compared to hiring individually. 

Moreover, nanny share can provide socialization and educational opportunities for children, as they get to interact with other children, learn together, and build new friendships.

It’s personalized care with an affordable price tag. You select the family you want to share with – we’ll do the rest!

Reviews from Happy ABC Clients and Candidates

Frequently Asked Questions

Our three decades of success stem from a multi-faceted approach to candidate recruitment. While we leverage every recruiting resource available, a remarkable 50+% of our yearly placements consist of repeat candidates (on their 2nd, 3rd, or 4th+ placement) and word-of-mouth referrals.

Our comprehensive and curated network of candidates – is a result of 30+ years  supporting our local nanny community through regular networking and educational events – ensures we not only attract new talent but also maintain lasting relationships with exceptional candidates in the market. By fostering trust and delivering unparalleled service, we’ve become the go-to agency for both candidates and families seeking the long-term childcare positions. 

As a result of our connections we’re able to hand-select the best candidates available in the marketplace and curate an elite group dedicated to delivering top-quality care to our clients.  

Yes – ABSOLUTELY! Vetting and identifying great candidates is about so much more than checking a few references and running a cheap online background check. Our rigorous applicant screening process, refined over three decades, is designed to identify individuals who have the passion, character, and experience needed to do the job well and weed out the rest. Less than 10% of applicants make the cut.

Unlike daycares and childcare centers that often have substantial waitlists – some upwards of 6-12+ months – hiring through ABC is much quicker. While it’s advisable to start your search earlier rather than later, 3-4+ weeks lead time is ideal for most positions. 

Starting early allows us ample time to recruit specifically for your position, and ensures you have plenty of time to interview potential matches and make a well-informed decision without feeling rushed. 

But not to worry, if you’re short on time, we can help you too! 

Great question! Rates vary based on the needs of your family, your specific job requirements, and the level of education, experience and expertise required for the position. While there are many variables to consider, we typically see families paying the following: 


     – Nannies: $27 – $35+ per hour 
     – Nanny Managers:  
$28 – $35+ per hour
     – Family Assistants: $30 – $37+ per hour 
     – Nanny Shares: $5++ on top of standard nanny rates

Hourly rates tend to be a few dollars an hour less in the Fort Collins / NOCO metro area, and in/around Colorado Springs. Alternatively, candidates in Boulder and the mountain areas typically make at least a few dollars per hour more. 

Our consultants are happy to help you establish an appropriate pay range for your position to ensure you attract the right candidates for the job. 


With few exceptions, the IRS considers most nannies, nanny managers, and family assistants household employees, not independent contractors (W2 vs 1099). When you hire the perfect person, you’ll be the employer and will be responsible for paying your new employee, withhold taxes, paying employer taxes and more. 

But not to worry – it’s not as complex as it sounds. We’re happy to refer you to several reputable, affordable tax and payroll companies who will make payroll and tax compliance a breeze.

At ABC, our commitment extends beyond the initial placement. We’re here to help anytime you need us, whether that’s a few weeks, a few months, or a few years in. If issues arise, our dedicated team will work closely with both parties to find a swift, effective solution. Our goal is to help facilitate harmonious, enduring placements. And when it’s it’s time for a change, we’ll be there for you then, too!
