For the Family

For the Family

Our company has two departments ready to take on your childcare needs. Upon your initial call or email to us, we will ask if you are looking for…

Sitter Services

On-demand sitters for date night, daytime, after-school, and/or weekend help; whatever you need, we're there!

Booking sitters is as easy as specifying the time frame needed, a location and any special requests. Families will submit a request through our website’s booking platform months in advance or a few hours before the start time. We provide each family with the best match sitter profile based on the family’s profile criteria. Our booking platform will confirm the appointment for you, provide updates and reminders as the assignment approaches, and facilitate checkout using our credit card or PayPal processing platform. All other on-demand services such as Family Helpers, Travel Sitters and Hotel Sitters are booked similarly. Just indicate what type of service you need when you submit your request.


Nanny Services

A consistent full or part time nanny that works a set schedule and commits to a specific duration of time with your family.

Once you've indicated what type of service your family is looking for, our team will direct you to a manager to speak about your specific childcare needs.

Most of our families come to us through a referral; a friend, family member or one of our trusted partners. This simple filter assures we are working within a small and trusted community.

Once a family’s referral is confirmed and the family’s consultation call with us is complete, each family will need to open up a profile on our website. The information you provide to us will allow us to match your family dynamics and preferences to our childcare providers.

Nanny Placement takes a bit more time; typically 2-5 weeks depending on the request and how fast the family wants to move. We will build out your family’s job conditions, which is a detailed description of your family’s childcare needs as well as information gathered from your application and family assessment call between our Nanny Services Manager and your family. Typically, families will see 3-5 best matched candidates and from that group they will select which to interview and then trial.

Our Nanny Placement Process

  1. Inquiry email/phone consult
  2. Family clicks Join Bell Family and fills in application and signs Nanny Placement Agreement to initiate the search
  3. Family assessment call/job conditions approval
  4. Bell Family sends recommended nanny candidate profiles
  5. Interview, meet and greet, trial and offer
  6. Placement confirmation

Additional service offerings are available for families placed with a full or part time nanny through our company: Mediation, VIP Concierge, 24/7 On-Call Services, Emergency Back Up Care, etc.

For more information on our Nanny Services Offerings please visit our sister site NY Nanny Center, a Bell Family Company.

For the Sitter

Sitter Services

Bell Family has been recruiting and placing sitters since 2005. Our company is committed to working with the utmost respectable families and placing them with the best in the business babysitters.

All Bell Family Sitters come by referral from a family, another sitter in our network or through one of our trusted partners. We then interview and screen each sitter for suitability based on our screening process, including personal interviews, ID verification, a National Criminal Background Check and Social Check to name a few. Once accepted, the Bell Family Sitter’s first step is to complete their profile, with background information, skill tags and PayPal information as examples. Sitters are then ready to receive real time availability requests from the Bell Family booking platform. Booked assignments, payments, and most everything else is covered in the face-to-face interview at our office in New York City.

For the Nanny

Nanny Services

Bell Family acquired the reputable New York Nanny Center in 2013 and has been successfully recruiting and placing full and part time consistent care since.

New York Nanny Center was started by a social worker and mother in late 1980’s. Staying true to the New York Nanny Center mission, our company is committed to working with the utmost respectable families and placing them with the best in the business nannies.

Bell Family Nannies are drawn from our pool of sitters, referred by other nannies that have been previously placed by our company and recruited through trusted sources of ours. Each nanny will go through an application process, pass through our preliminary interview conducted via phone before they interview in person with our Nanny Services team. Once the nanny candidate interviews in person, passes our Nanny Assessment test and is fully on-boarded through our extensive screening process, the nanny will be added to our job board email distribution list and will begin to be matched with jobs that fit their profile.

Nannies are placed within a few weeks, months or may not be placed. Factors depend on the nanny’s experience, availability and response time. If you are a loving person, with a positive attitude, glowing references and have great communication skills, this company is for you.
