Ou​r Mission

We are more than just a nanny agency; we are ​a community of faith and fellowship. Our ​mission is to serve Christian families by ​providing them with caring, responsible ​nannies who share their values and are ​committed to bringing love, care, and light into ​their homes. And to serve our employees, ​militar​y spouses, with flexible remote work.

Our Expertise

Utilizing the unique skills, geographies, and ​dedication of military spouses, we have crafted a ​meticulous screening process that not only ​assesses skills and experience but also aligns with ​the core Christian values. Our team understands ​the importance of trust and faith in child care, ​making us a preferred choice for families looking ​for more than just a helping hand.

Ou​r Nannies

Our live-in nanny program offers young, ​motivated individuals from across the country ​an opportunity to become an integral part of a ​family. Like au pairs but domestic, our nannies ​live with the families, helping to nurture and ​care for their children as if they were their own. ​We help coach first-time host families with the ​best methods to interview, onboard, and retain ​th​eir nannies.

The Seal

of Approval

Hear from the families who have welcomed our nannies into their homes ​and hearts, sharing their experiences of increased joy, support, and faith.

“Joining Heart for the Home was the best decision I have made for my career! As a ​nanny with only 2 years of experience, I was looking for a team that prioritizes the well-​being of both nannies and families. Thanks to Heart for the Home, I was able to quickly ​and effortlessly find a family that aligns perfectly with my values and childcare ​approach.”

Matilda D. (Nanny)

“Using Heart for the Home has been a game-changer for our family. We were in ​desperate need of finding reliable childcare for our two young children, and within a ​very short period of time, we found the perfect nanny match. I love that a military mom ​met and screened each candidate for us, and used our shared values as a guide. Our ​family feels confident in our choice and couldn’t be happier with the care our children ​receive.”

Frequently Asked

Hear from the families who have welcomed our nannies into their homes ​and hearts, sharing their experiences of increased joy, support, and faith.

How do I find the right nanny for my family?

Talk through with your spouse the qualities and qualifications that are important to ​you. You might want someone with experience in early childhood education, or ​someone who shares your family values or faith. Our agency can help match you ​with candidates who meet your criteria and have been pre-screened for their ​experience and background.

What kind of background checks are conducted on nannies?

We use a third party to run a criminal background check, verification of previous ​employment and references, a sex offender registry check, and possibly a driving ​record check (if the nanny has a driver’s license). Since we source nannies ​domestically instead of internationally, this information is much easier to obtain.

How do we handle nanny contracts?

A nanny contract is crucial as it outlines the expectations and responsibilities of ​both the nanny and the employer. A Heart for the Home will provide the contract, ​editable to your needs, for signature by both parties. Typical items included are ​hours of work, salary, overtime, benefits, job duties, house rules, and conditions for ​termination.

What if the nanny isn’t the right fit for our family?

It’s important to address any issues early with clear and respectful communication. If ​the arrangement isn’t working out despite efforts to resolve differences, our agency ​can assist in mediating discussions or finding a replacement nanny to better suit ​your family's needs. All nannies start on a provisional basis for 10 weeks and if it isn’t ​a fit in that timeframe, we will find you a replacement nanny free of charge.
