Colorado Nanny has placed me with many wonderful families over the past 16 years. Jane has done an amazing job supporting and guiding me throughout my career. I have also had the pleasure of meeting numerous other families through the on-call service when I was looking for additional work.

I found Colorado Nanny during my transition moving from Seattle, WA to Fort Collins, CO. I nannied for several years in Seattle so moving to a new state and starting all over was scary. I was so happy to have found an agency that supports nannies and spends a lot of time carefully matching you with the right family. Jane Jones is such an amazing childcare advocate and her team worked very hard to support my efforts in finding a nanny position. Thank you for everything, Jane!

I've been working with Jane Jones and Colorado Nanny for eight years. Jane has placed me in full-time, part-time and temporary nanny positions. She is very professional and personable, asks all the right questions, and really cares about both her clients and the nannies. She doesn't place a nanny just to fill a spot. She truly cares that a nanny and the parents will be able to work as a team. I highly recommend Jane and Colorado Nanny to both parents and nannies!

I am a previous nanny that was placed by Colorado Nanny. I have nothing but great things to say about Jane and her team! I was blessed immensely to be placed with a family I truly believed was a perfect fit from the start. With Jane's guidance and the connection I had with my nanny family, I now have a forever bond that will always be something I hold very dear to my heart.
