Short-term Placements

The Nanny Network has seen tremendous growth in its short-term placement division as a result of its close attention to detail and ability to place vetted, experienced child care and household management with families with minimal lead time. Our temporary team and staffing specialists have a genuine concern for each and every family we work with and go the extra mile to arrange the best support for your family each and every time!

Our Short-term Placement division encompasses all jobs which range from 1-day to 2 months in duration and places:

    • Short-term child care (ranging from 1-day to 2 months)
    • Date Night Sitters (including hotel sitters)
    • Emergency Back-up Child Care
    • Academic Support (in-home or online) via our School@Home program
      • eLearning Aides (1-hour daily minimum, virtual)
    • Family Assistants (hybrid of child care and household work)
    • Sidekicks (short-term household help in the form of errand service, laundry service, simple meal prep and other chores)


The process to find a temporary nanny or private educator is slightly different from the long-term search process as described below. It also takes less time:

    • Completion of our online application by parent
    • Application review with a Nanny Network Staffing Specialist to discuss any special needs or situations
    • Completion of Service Agreement via online client dashboard
    • Temporary job request made using the Book Care form found in your client dashboard
    • Booking of a temporary nanny, family assistant, or School@Home helper, confirmed by an email with a link to your caregiver’s profile (including job history, education, skills, reference highlights and additional training). This information is stored in the job history section of your dashboard.
    • Automated credit card payment (including a 3% transaction fee) or ACH debit payment (for jobs booked 48 hours in advance) via Stripe upon booking confirmation
    • Nanny, family assistant or School@Home helper will reach out to introduce herself, confirm all of the job details, and discuss any transportation-related details if applicable (i.e., directions, parking, etc.) *
    • You now have safe and dependable coverage for your family so you can carry on with your schedule with peace of mind!
    • The Nanny Network will process payroll associated for her work with your family so there is nothing required of you at the time of care.
