Redefining the Nanny Experience

We take the time to listen to your needs through an in-person consultation, then design a unique package tailored to your family and ensure personal contact throughout the entire process. Whether you are looking for a specialist in newborn and infant care, someone with music and language experience, or an orientation toward health and fitness – we have an extensive network of nannies we work with for either live-in, live-out, travel or a mix of all. Our nannies are professional, responsible, highly-skilled and adaptable to your needs. 

In addition to placement, please check out our range of lifestyle-oriented services here. A session with up to two of these is included complimentary with every placement.


Children need to feel respected, supported and cared for and so do parents; finding that right fit is key


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".
