Choosing a nanny is an emotional decision –– especially for a first born. The safety and health of your children is your primary concern, so it’s crucial that you feel confident your children are safe and well cared for.

What you don’t need is someone who glances through resumes for you. You want a personalized experience with a Human Resources Specialist who provides you with a select few professionally screened, highly-qualified, experienced candidates with spotless, thorough background checks and exceptional references.

Optimum President Janet MacDonald knows exactly how you feel. In 1989, she was the one searching for nanny services for her infant daughter, and she quickly realized that many agencies offer nothing more than resumes. That wasn’t good enough for her and she doesn’t expect that to be good enough for you, either.

“As a mother, I understand the emotional issues and stress involved in hiring a nanny. We work with a limited number of clients and it shows. We are there for our clients every step of the way. We provide personal support and are available to discuss interviews on the weekends or evenings.”

14 years ago, while continuing to skillfully manage and grow Optimum as a new company, Janet returned to the workforce for 4 years as a Human Resources Advisor and Employment Specialist. She brought this valuable experience to her own company and, as a trained and certified HR professional, was able to offer professional recruitment services which positioned Optimum far above the competition.
