Redefining the Nanny Experience

We believe families thrive when they are supported by optimistic, energetic and capable people and at Crisford & Co it is our goal to provide just that.  Our nannies are more than caregivers - they act as the big sister, best friend and parental confidant. 

We provide tailored packages uniquely designed to you and your family's needs, whether it be finding a nanny with a focus on newborns & infant care, with experience in music & languages, with an orientation toward health & fitness, as a live-in or live-out, for travel, or a mix of all. We take the time to listen to your needs and make just the right placement for your family. 

As part of our lifestyle-oriented service, we provide a range of specialists who complement childcare so that you and your family can enjoy the highest sense of wellness before and after child birth. Our inhouse team includes pre & post natal Yoga and Pilates instructors, nutritionists, lactation consultants, & child space organizers, and a session with up to two of these services is included – complimentary – with every nanny placement.


As founder and director of CRISFORD & CO, Deb Crisford brings over fifteen years of experience to families in NYC. With a sharp eye for the right match and a unique understanding for a family's individual needs, Deb believes that the right nanny should not only work wonderfully with the kids but with the parents as well, providing clear lines of communication and support. Having the right addition to your family is key to maintaining a healthy and happy home life.


Prior to opening Crisford & Co., Deb co-owned and operated a top New York City nanny service for seven years. In addition, Deb is a trained yoga practitioner (specializing in pre & postnatal) and a DONA trained Birth & Postpartum doula. Deb's great connection to little ones has led her to be referred to by many as "the baby whisperer".
