Babies grow up.

For you, that means — the job search never ends.

As former childcare professionals ourselves, we understand the hustle it takes to stay ahead in this field. That’s why, at Petite Crew, we do the marketing, pay negotiating, and booking for you.

With our help, you can tout your status as one of LA’s most sought-after childcare professionals, without losing focus on offering best-in-the-business care.

We’ll do the hustling so you can do the baby-whispering.

As entrepreneurs, my husband and I didn’t have the luxury of traditional maternity leave so we knew we needed to find an experienced team to help us after our daughter was born. The process of finding someone was seamless and the Newborn Care Specialists we hired were top-notch. We’re excited to find a great nanny now!.

So much thought and planning went into my partner and me having a baby so when it came to hiring a Newborn Care Specialist to help us at night we wanted the absolute best. We wanted someone who was very experienced but could also let us figure it out as new parents and be willing to take our lead. Thankfully we found all of that and more. I can’t imagine having gone through this season in our life without her. We are forever grateful.
