Short-Term Childcare


Flexible childcare options

Customizable Care for Your Unique Needs

We recognize childcare needs are as varied as the children being served. Not everyone needs full-time or even long-term childcare – we get that. As a result, we created our short-term childcare service. 

As you’ve likely found out on your own finding high-quality, experienced, and reliable nannies and babysitters on short-term basis is difficult. However, the good news is that after nearly 30 years in the Colorado marketplace we’ve cracked the code!

Whether you’re looking for a consistent part-time nanny a few days a week, a full-time nanny for a few months, or a handful of reliable babysitters for as-needed coverage – we can help. Additionally, our temporary nannies can also assist with ongoing childcare for your church or provide stellar for an upcoming event. It’s customized childcare that is as unique as your needs.

Reviews from Happy ABC Clients and Candidates

Frequently Asked Questions

Our three decades of success stems 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.

Thirty years of supporting the local nanny community through networking and educational events has allowed us to cultivate a comprehensive, curated candidate network. By fostering trust and delivering unparalleled service, we’ve become the go-to agency for both candidates and families seeking childcare in Colorado. 

ABSOLUTELY! 100% yes! Vetting and identifying great candidates is about so much more than checking a few references and running a background check. Our rigorous applicant screening process, refined over the years, is designed to identify individuals who have the passion, character, and experience needed to do this job well and weed out the rest.  Our screening process is rigorous and uncompromising; lower-quality candidates tend to choose the path of least resistance: online job boards.

If you’re looking or a consistent part-time or short-term nanny, we’d suggest starting your search as soon as possible – ideally 4-6+ weeks in advance. 

If you’re using our babysitting, hotel or event childcare service, our turn around time can be even quicker. Depending on your needs, we can have a babysitter available for you tomorrow night or if you’re planning an event 4+ weeks notice is even better. 

Don’t worry, if you are short on time – we can help you too! 

Great question! The answer is yes, to both. If you’re looking for a consistent short-term or part-time nanny we require a commitment of 20-25+ hours per week (for 2+ months). If you need babysitting, hotel or event care there is a 4 hour daily minimum per caregiver. 

You may have heard it’s okay to “1099” your nanny. However, with few exceptions – including our temporary nannies (babysitters, hotel, church and event care nannies) who are our employees  – the IRS considers most household workers an employee of your family.

If you expect to pay your short-term or part-time nanny more than $2600 (in 2023) you’ll be responsible for paying your nanny directly as well as withholding taxes/paying employer taxes. But not to worry, it’s easy …honestly, it is. We work closely with the top payroll and tax companies in the industry who will walk you through every step.

A part-time or short-term nanny’s rate of pay is based on their experience, areas of expertise and level education; in this market the broad range is $27-$35+/hour, with most falling somewhere in the middle.

As for our fees for part-time and short-term placements, we believe in transparency. Our fees are competitive with other well-established, reputable agencies across the country and reflect the premium quality of the service provided. You can find more information on all of our placement fees, guarantees and benefits HERE.

If you’re using our babysitting, hotel or event childcare service, through Jovie of Denver+, our pricing is all-inclusive (the nanny’s wage and our services fees) and our hourly rate range from $35 – $42+ per hour based on the care specifics.
