Exclusive Teacher Database + Diagnostic Vetting Process

We’ve been helping families find personal teachers and educational nannies for 20 years. During that time, we’ve developed unique systems and a rigorous process to identify exceptional private teachers and educational nannies. Teacher and nanny candidates possess a bachelor’s degree and have several years of experience working with children, generally in the classroom or a large group setting. After our intensive screening procedures, about 4% of applicants are chosen to represent TeacherCare. Learn more about our selection process for teachers and education nannies here.

Each child has a different learning style and pace.

Each child is unique.

Kaitlin is creative, patient, and very skilled at teaching the whole person, which is a real winning combination. The boys are busy doing everything from science experiments to craft projects to practicing writing letters and numbers right now. She is a true partner when it comes to looking out for the boys’ best interests and promoting their development.

The love between Amiee and the boys’ is exactly what I prayed for; someone who would love them like my husband and I do.We knew Aimee was the one when our then autistic-like 3-year old walked over to Aimee and put his head on her lap. Thank you TeacherCare. We have sent many families to you and hope they were as lucky as we are!

Heather goes above and beyond the call of duty. The most important thing she does besides keeping me organized, my kids organized and on top of new challenges in homework, is building a relationship with them. She is a joy to see in action with my kids who text her and send her pictures every time they accomplish something new. It just goes to show the genuinely close relationship she has developed.

The TeacherCare Difference
Watch our video below.

Give your child a caregiver who is trained to optimize spontaneous learning during everyday activities. Imagine having a caregiver who is aware of the developmental tasks (intellectual, physical, social and emotional) a child must successfully complete before entering the next stage of development; who knows which types of nurturing and stimulation will enhance your child’s development; and who is aware of the best means to help your child realize his or her potential.

A TeacherCaregiver is...


A personal childcare teacher and educational nanny who is trained to value and create positive, stimulating early childcare experiences.

  • Educated, nurturing, experienced and dedicated to your family.
  • Cares for your child’s complete day-to-day childcare needs in your home.
  • Personalizes play activities to your child’s age, development and interest.
Early Experiences & Brain Development


An explosion of recent research links everyday early experiences, such as childcare, to lasting changes in brain architecture:

  • Positive, stimulating daily experiences can have amazing effects on early brain development.
  • Negative or un-stimulating daily experiences can have devastating effects on the brain’s development.



Your child's future starts now!


Very early in life, a TeacherCaregiver can help your child:
