Dana has been a wonderful resource for helping us find a part-time babysitter. Her first pick for us is now one of our favorite people, and my kids have fallen in love with our new sitter from day one. Having used other online resources to find childcare in the past, I can tell you that working with Dana was a complete game-changer. I highly recommend using Rivertown Helpers to find the right care for whatever your situation is - you will not regret it! Thank you Dana!

Dana was a fantastic resource on our first time nanny search. We are grateful for her networking and guidance. She found someone who was a terrific fit for our pretty specific needs, and she was super responsive in the first weeks, reaching out frequently to make sure the fit was right. She went above and beyond our expectations during a time when we really needed support. She clearly cares a lot about kids, childcare, and nannies. She is honest, practical, responsive and very kind. I recommend Rivertown Nannies enthusiastically.

Working with Rivertown Helpers was the best decision I made as I was returning to work after maternity leave. I’ve heard someone describe Dana as a “nanny godmother,” and I couldn’t say it better myself. She goes above and beyond, and she cares deeply about her work and her clients. I wasn’t sure exactly what our family needed when it came to childcare, and she helped me to understand our options, helped me to navigate the questions I had about nanny pay and benefits, and very quickly found us several highly qualified and wonderful candidates. She was patient with us as we tried to find the right fit for our family. She was compassionate in hearing and understanding our concerns (and all my first-time-mom worries), and she was a level-headed sounding board as we identified the right nanny for our child. Her pay model is transparent and her services are well worth the cost. I couldn’t be happier with the outcome. Our nanny has become a part of our family, and Dana is still my go to resource for all questions about childcare. She’s truly the best.

Dana and Rivertown Helpers was the most involved and passionate agency we worked with. We had been interviewing candidates for months and worked with several agencies, and Dana came through when we needed it with top candidates who were local and right for our family’s needs. She was responsive, all over the search for us and very considerate. In short, this is a person who “gets it “ and will work hard to find the right person for your family. Unlike other agencies who have no problem taking your money and then barely show you candidates, Dana was the exact opposite. She is dedicated and committed to her work and is passionate about it. Thank you for finding us the best nanny.

I joke that Dana has been my Nanny fairy godmother. When I moved to Irvington a couple months ago, I had no idea where to start with my search for a nanny for my now-1-year-old. I got connected with Dana, and she immediately sent me a few candidates who fit all the criteria I was looking for, to a tee. I hired a nanny who is a great fit for our family with Dana’s help. She’s even helped us to place short-term help for situations when our nanny has been on vacation. Dana really knows the River Towns - her decades of experience in the area and the connections she has here are some of her biggest assets, but on top of that - she’s kind, empathetic and truly wants to help. I’ve already recommended her to friends of mine in the area (and of course, she placed an amazing nanny with them immediately, too!)

I was connected with Dana through a very trusted friend and I'm so grateful to have her as one of my contacts now! We were in a major pinch with childcare, our au pair having left suddenly. When I reached out to Dana she put me in touch with someone right away, who had glowing reviews from another family. She acted quickly and was also very flexible with her process. Dana also seemed to recognize (without really asking) that we were in a real pinch and time wasn't on our side - she made things really easy for us. You won't regret working with Rivertown Helpers!

Dana was instrumental in helping our family find the perfect nanny for our first baby. Her energy and passion was apparent in the first minute of speaking to her, and that carried through the entire process. I highly recommend working with Rivertown Helpers!

I am a nanny and Danna has gone above and beyond and placed me with a wonderful family and I love the family I work with, she is patient and understanding of what your looking for in a family and she finds the best match for you. Not to mention her genuine personality makes the process so much smoother because it makes you trust her even more. She even helped place my daughter with a wonderful family as well.
