A Seasoned Nanny’s Favorite Websites

Next month, I will celebrate 24 years as a professional nanny. One thing I’ve watched first-hand throughout my career is how the internet has grown and flourished in the nanny industry. Many sites have come and gone, and some of my favorites are a mixture of both old and new and should be a regular visit for nannies everywhere.
SitteCycle is the latest nanny website to come on my radar, and has a goal of bringing educational opportunities directly to nannies. In addition to the educational platform the site offers, there is also an online community, and nannies can opt for one class or a series of classes to add to their portfolios. Since this is one of the newest nanny sites, I can’t wait to see what they have coming in the future.
Nanny Biz Reviews is not your average website. Founder Lora Brawley has made a name for herself in the nanny industry by creating the A-Z Nanny Contract, co-founding Nannypalooza with veteran nanny Sue Downey and offering ongoing webinars and training programs for nannies on various platforms.
Nannypalooza is not only an online nanny community, it is an annual conference attended by nannies from across the country. Created to bring nannies together, Nannypalooza.com offers educational forums, podcasts, answers to commonly asked questions and much more!
Nanny Island is an online community just for nannies – no parents or agencies allowed. Created by nanny industry leader Deb Smith, and now owned and moderated by me, Nanny Island is a place for nannies to gather, chat, ask questions and share stories, photos and more. There are rules to being on the Island, and nannies respect those rules and come together to support, encourage and share with one another.
Regarding Nannies is one of the industry’s leading sites for information, features, guest posts and insightful series. Two regular features, Meet Nanny You and Nannypreneur’s, bring you real nannies and their stories of life as a nanny and their successes. From Monday Moxie to Financial Friday, each day of the week brings something new, informative, creative and hopefully get nannies talking.
