Mission: Building Stronger Families from cradle to college.
-Leave it Better
College Nannies and Tutors of Glen Allen, VA was recently highlighted on their local news station, highlighting the dangers of fake nanny ads, and what CNT does to fight against them.
College Nannies + Sitters + Tutors builds stronger families by providing role models through full-service childcare solutions and customized tutoring for college bound students. From the time their children are small until they send them off to college, families can count on our educated roles models to help them run more smoothly and effectively.
Whether you need the assistance of a part or full-time nanny, a professional babysitter for a night out or a qualified tutor to get your child through Calculus, we can help!
If you enjoy hanging out with kids, need to set your own schedule, and want a job that makes a difference, being a nanny, sitter or tutor could be perfect for you.
College Nannies + Sitters + Tutors began in the summer of 2000 when then business school student and college entrepreneur Joseph Keeley took a job as a nanny caring for children in Edina, Minnesota. During his time as a "manny," Keeley realized that he was much more than a babysitter; he was, in fact, an "active role model" for the children. He also recognized a need for a unique and specialized service that connected parents with safe and reliable nannies and tutors or role models. He found these role models in current college students, college graduates and certified teachers looking to make a positive difference working with children and adolescents; he pioneered an efficient way to match the families' needs with reliable resources and a business was born.
Incorporated in 2001, the College Nannies + Sitters + Tutors organization has expanded on Keeley's initial award-winning business to become the nation's most complete full-service nanny and tutor resource. Through one-on-one role model focused programs, College Nannies + Sitters + Tutors employs nannies you can trust, babysitters who show up, tutors who will help your student succeed and test prep coaches that will help your student get into the college of their choice. It is a commitment to both families and employees that distinguishes College Nannies + Sitters + Tutors today.
Mr. Keeley has since won a prestigious Entrepreneur of the Year award from Ernst & Young and been appointed by Governor Mark Dayton to the Minnesota Commission on National and Community Service. His entrepreneurial spirit continues to move the company forward by pioneering new ways to use technology to provide better service to the families we serve and the franchisees who serve them.
I have been working at College Nannies+Sitters+Tutors part-time
CNST is different from other sites such as Care.com because they provide a personal, customizable, flexible work environment. As a nanny, sometimes I've been put in situations where I didn't feel like the right fit for a kid. Before I was employed by College Nannies/Tutors, this feeling would've put me out of a job. However, with a good manager, I am able to have honest conversations, and if needed, get assigned a new placement.
Orientation can be a bit lengthy and training videos are required, but honestly not bad at all.
I applied in-person. I interviewed at College Nannies+Sitters+Tutors (Mequon, WI) in October 2015.
Very easy, I felt very comfortable during the interview. I also felt that my answers were good, I presented myself professionally, and took it all seriously. It was a lot more brief than I thought it would be.
