Meet the Founder and CEO
Tiffanie Kinder, Founder and CEO
Tiffanie Kinder founded Nanny Connections in August of 1998 to provide parents with a source for educated nannies. She has taken her hands-on experiences as a mother of two children, professional nanny and childcare coordinator for the five-star American Club and blended it with her entrepreneurial spirit and love for children to develop her own successful business.
Tiffanie holds a degree in Hospitality and her skills and passion for customer service lead the prestigious Walt Disney Institute to select her to attend their world-renowned customer service internship program. This amazing educational experience strengthened her fundamental talent to always exceed her clients expectations. Her satisfied clientele inspired her to expand the organization’s placement services to include a variety of other domestic staffing positions such as household managers, baby nurses /newborn care specialists, postpartum doulas and private chefs across the US. Mrs. Kinder’s depth of understanding in this industry on the business side and the “emotional” side has lead her business to become known as one of the most well-respected agencies in US. She is known as a seasoned expert in the field and currently serves as on a national Nanny Agency Advisory Board and is an avid media contact for the industry.
Nanny Connections has stood the test of time in helping private families hire talented nannies, baby nurses / Newborn Care Specialists (NCS), private chefs, and household managers. Active in several markets across the country, they exercise their philosophy of high standards of professional conduct, promotion of the social, emotional, intellectual, and physical development of children, and a support of life-long learning for their placements.
Tiffanie Kinder tells more about her well recognized agency, which has been featured in such publications as Parents Magazine, Chicago Parent, Yahoo! Celebrity, Parenting OC, and Nashville Parent…
