"Wow!! I can’t say enough positive things about Robin and the Nanny Connection. She is known in my group of friends as the, “Matchmaker”. She put her heart and soul into finding my family the perfect nanny, not just once, but twice. She listens with an ear as a mother and as an employer. She counsels, comforts and sees to it that the connection is made. We are so blessed to have found the best nannies to take care of my three children while I am at work. Each nanny I have encountered is professional and enthusiastic; due to the care that Robin takes in seeking out the best ones!" Chara- Blackhawk
"I just wanted to let you know how pleased I am with the outstanding care and understanding that you bring to your profession. As you remember I had just moved to the east bay area and had no idea what I would run into in my quest for a quality position after my last position as a nanny was for 9 years. I had a great number of concerns as to location, people, expectations and qualifications among others. With your outstanding reputation I was lead to you. I am so please to have been fortunate enough to have found you to guide me through the process. The qualifications required by the state, the local government, and all of the others that made me very nervous about the whole process. The families that you sent me to were of the highest quality and the decision was most difficult. Your caring nature and level of professionalism was the most impressive of all the agencies that I spoke with. Thanks again for being the best in the business!" Phyllis M.
"In my experience with "A Nanny Connection" I have found them to be very efficient and diligent. They take into consideration the needs of both the nannies as well as those of the families. I have been extremely satisfied with my placements and am very thankful for the relationships I have developed with these families. It is without reservation that I recommend this service to anyone!" Sherri- San Ramon
"I started working with Robin and A Nanny Connection in 2000. Robin is AWESOME!! She takes the time to listen to my needs as a Nanny and presents me with the families that she knows will be a good match. She doesn't rest until that perfect match has been made. Over the years we have become friends and I've seen that the same care and attention to detail extends to the families she works with as well as the Nannies. Her energy is amazing!" Deirdre (featured in "Diablo" magazine and nominated for The International Nanny of the year award twice)
"Robin is without a doubt #1 in the nanny world. I have previously worked with other agencies but once I contacted Robin (5 years ago) I knew I would no longer seek nanny positions from other nanny agencies in the east bay (or anywhere!). She is extremely professional yet unintimidating when I confront her with an issue or concern. She is prompt when returning my phone calls and patiently awaits for me to find the right fit between prospective families and myself (the nanny). I have an immense amount of respect for Robin and would not hesitate to utilize her services to find a nanny for my own children in the future." Alison
"The name A Nanny Connection says it all!! Robin is awesome when it comes to “connecting” families and childcare providers. She has something for everyone. Daytime or night shifts, full or part time jobs ranging in length of a few months to over a year. As a nanny what I like most is that she listens and takes time for each individual situation. She’s energetic, compassionate, and professional. I highly recommend her services to families and childcare providers. She’s the best." Elizabeth
"I look forward to starting my new job and I feel truly blessed that my last 2 experiences have been with awesome families and I feel that this will be no less. It seems like a great match. You my friend are an instrument of God and not just for me but for the families that you represent. Thank you, with all of my heart. You deserve honor and recognition for the services that you provide." Phyllis
"Thank you. I am letting you know how special you are. Thank you for everything you do for me and all the nannies who work with you. Thank you thank you thank you." Martha
"Nanny Connection is a true connection. I first went through the Nanny Connection five years ago. Robin found and connected me with a great, amazing family. Right from the beginning, we knew it was a perfect match for everybody. When the time came that I was no longer needed at the position, I knew the place to go was back to Nanny Connection. I called Robin, and she recognized me right away. She's like a best Friend. She truly listens to everything you say. She does the perfect match with Nanny & Family. Once again she did an amazing job with placing me. Being a Nanny is not just a job to me, it's my career choice, it's what I love to do, and take it very seriously. Nanny Connection is the only agency I'll ever go through, as Robin puts the connection in the Nanny Connection. She's the Best!" Shelly
"Robin LeGrand runs one of the most organized, proactive nanny agencies I have ever had the pleasure of working with. As a long time child care specialist, I really appreciate her enthusiasm, feedback, and initiative. She really gets right to work matching up qualified nannies with families. Within two weeks of our first meeting, I was employed with a great family, whom I stayed with for nearly two years, very happily. She keeps her promises, and she is on the ball. I recommend her to all qualified nannies I know when they are seeking employment." Haley

"Just a quick note to thank you for all you did to help us find the perfect Nanny for our son. It was very hard to leave him and go back to work. However, knowing that he is being well cared for and loved while we are away makes a difficult situation a whole lot easier. Finding the right person to care for your child is one of the most important decisions you have to make and you were so understanding. We were very impressed with your professionalism and quick responsiveness. Your company is very thorough and forwarded all the background information on each candidate. You listened to our needs and concerns and found a perfect match guiding us all the way. There is no doubt that we will happily refer you to anyone we know in search of a Nanny. Please feel free to use us as a reference any time." Wade & Khrista- Diablo
"I can't think of anything more difficult than choosing someone who you will trust to look after your children. However, from the start, Robin made us feel very comfortable in a way that let us know that she understood how important this decision was. She answered all of our questions without reservation or judgement and she offered many helpful suggestions. Our deepest thanks go out to Robin and A Nanny Connection for a job well done." Amy- Pleasant Hill
"I am speaking on behalf of my husband and our three kids. My husband and I moved to the bay area five years ago from So. Cal and left all friends and family behind, a great job opportunity for my husband transplanted us here. When we arrived we soon found out we were pregnant, not realizing what was going to hit us I instantly became a stay home mom. Since we had our first daughter we had been looking for ANYONE that could help us with the care and a little babysitting so we could just breathe something else then just her! Without family or friends in the area we had a very difficult time trusting or finding anyone suitable. But with no further ado….. We went on to have another daughter, and also a baby boy who just turned 1 this February! We really love to think we are wonder Mom and Dad but we just could not go on without some help. This is where the nanny connection saved us all!! We contacted Robin and she was just heaven to work with in finding a nanny for us all. We are very particular and wanted a nanny who was a mini me (mom that is) we had a lot of requests that we thought would really challenge Robin and/or she would refuse service to us, but she was awesome and very understanding to the needs for our family. As a mother, I do not trust anyone and have very high standards for who our family spends time with and to bring a nanny into our home was something I never though I would do. Robin and the Nanny Connection made this transaction just delightful and found us another family member in our opinion. We thank you so much." Julie
"We would like to commend you on the excellent service you are providing the community. We appreciate your going out of your way to make arrangements for us to interview Nannies even when you were on vacation. You were extremely helpful in guiding us through the entire process. The quality of Nannies that you enlisted for us to interview was very good too. We are extremely happy with our current Nanny and our son simply loves her. It was indeed a pleasure doing business with you. We highly recommend your services to anyone who is a new to parenthood as well as to people who have been parents for long. Thanks once again." Radica & Ramen
"When I have mentioned to people about my nanny search SO many people say "Work with Robin LeGrand at A Nanny Connection, she is great!" and I say "I am, and she is!" Thanks!" Caity
"I'm mailing your check now... money well spent. Thank you, you are a pleasure to work with, I was consistently amazed at how you were always available, you had such great follow through, and you were so patient throughout the process and very intuitive on understanding what I was looking for without me even really knowing what it was. ;-) I never used an agency before, thought it was a lot of money to spend when I could find someone on my own just as easily. This experience has completely changed my mind, I will highly recommend you to anyone who is looking." Kelly- Berkeley
"I cannot thank you enough for helping us find our perfect Nanny. Annie came to us when Avery was only 10 months old and stayed a full year until I went on maternity leave this past August with baby #2. Annie blended into our family like an old friend and cared for Avery in a way I only dreamed possible. She listened to my wishes on discipline, sleep, play and safety and created an environment for Avery to thrive. Not only was she perfect with Avery but me as well. I work from home and having Annie in my home every day was an absolute joy! Thanks again and I look forward to working with you again this upcoming year. I would LOVE to have Annie back once I return to work but she is working on her graduate degree and doesn't have the hours available that I need. Fortunately for me and my family, Annie still drops in every now and then to say hi and give Avery some special attention." Erin & Dan
"With A Nanny Connection, stress is completely removed from the daunting and critical task of finding the right nanny. Robin is a pro. She does all of the background and reference checking (not to mention her own special scrutinizing!) and sends only wonderful applicants right to your door. Every candidate was highly qualified, enthusiastic, and warm. Much to our surprise and relief, our only "problem" was trying to choose which terrific Nanny we should hire. The end result? A Nanny Connection proved that our outrageously high expectations were actually perfectly realistic. Our precious twin boys have a bright, beautiful, loving, patient, intelligent and dependable nanny. A Nanny Connection exceeded out hopes by a long shot. We are forever grateful. " Marie Louise
