About Nannies Who Care

As a member of INA (International Nanny Association) & APNA (Association of Premier Nanny Agencies) we take pride in our ability to offer quality in-home childcare. Raising the standards of in-home childcare!

Nannies Who Care was founded in 1989 by Debra Brown-Adamo. Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, Debra has a Legal Assistant degree and worked in the industry for 8 years prior to starting Nannies Who Care. Debra has three grown, independent and successful children. She has lived in Tampa Bay for over 35 years. When her children were babies, she saw the need of families to find quality and affordable childcare. Debra is also a Guardian Ad Litem, a volunteer position where she advocates for the safety and welfare of abused or foster care children. She attends court to ensure that these children are placed in a safe and loving home. Debra likes to live by the motto: Treat others as you would like to be treated.

Nannies Who Care has been serving all of Tampa Bay, Sarasota, & Orlando areas for the past 30 years! Because of our longevity in this area as well as our impeccable reputation, most of our clients and nannies come from referrals. We personally interview all local nannies and are proud to say that after so many years, many of our client’s children are grown and now having their own children and using our service. Additionally, some of our nannies are having their own children who are becoming our nannies too! New generations are trusting and using Nannies Who Care! This is a comfort factor that only a well established agency can provide.

We spend much of our time educating families and nannies about the difference between a full service agency and finding a nanny from an online list. Unfortunately, these lists give parents a false sense of security. Online applicants are never met by anyone and their identification is not checked. These lists provide minimal background checks that are also done online if at all. At Nannies Who Care we personally interview all candidates (with the exception of only a few that may live out of state and in the process of relocating), face to face interviews so their identification may be properly checked. Verification of legal status is done to be sure they are eligible to work in this country, thorough background screening (which includes runners to go out to individual courthouses to check records on any place a person has lived worked or gone to school!) and the nanny is sent out for CPR & First Aid certification.

We provide a personalized service that is second to none by thoroughly assessing the family’s needs before referring any candidates to them. This is a huge time saver for the family so they do not have to weed through hundreds of unqualified applicants that you may find on a “do it yourself” site.

Nannies Who Care maintains high standards of integrity in our nannies and other household help in order to provide “peace of mind” for families and encourage the children in their care to grow in a loving, friendly and safe environment. Nannies Who Care also provides “Supervised Visitation” for those children to be able to visit with their parent at a location other than a center. Supervisors are permitted to go on outings to “fun” venues on their visit.

Nannies Who Care has many references that we can provide from families that currently use us. Feel free to check us out on Facebook, Linked In, Yelp and Twitter for testimonials. We are referred out by many of the local hospitals, pediatricians, and major hotels as the premier nanny service for their guests!

Call us anytime and we will be happy to personally answer any questions you may have.
