Our temp service can offer you fill-in work around your school or work schedule.  Our permanent nanny service can place you either part time or full time with one family.  You negotiate your salary with the family and we assist you with all steps of the hiring process.

“Thank you so much for being such a great agency to work with. You have definitely been a saving grace to me (and my bank account) during my college career.  I really appreciate everything.”  Maggie Eddy

Because we are a smaller, local agency, we can give you the personal attention you need and might be missing from the larger agencies. Even after the placement we are available for consultation whenever you need it. Our goal is to support you and the family throughout your relationship.

“As I interviewed for a full-time position, I felt safe and comfortable babysitting for some terrific families until we found a compatible long-term job. I was hired by a wonderful family!  Signing on with Rent-a-Parent was a rewarding move for me!”  Kika Kane

“I want to say thank you very much for a really great experience.  The families have been wonderful, the kids awesome, and you guys are great with getting back to me in a timely manner and being flexible.  Those are some of the many reasons I’ve enjoyed being a temp sitter”  Jessica Link
