Nanny Recruiter is a premium placement agency for full-time and part-time Nannies throughout the Greater Boston area. Our full-time recruiters will work with you to assist in personalizing the selection process of a Nanny. We simplify many of our processes through automatic billing, payroll services, and scheduling apps to allow you to focus your attention fully on communicating with your Nanny about what matters most, your children.

Our extensive pre-placement process for all our Nannies includes background criminal records checks, sexual offender checks, motor vehicle records checks, social security number verification, and no less than five (5) reference checks. Our unique Nanny training provides additional education in health, safety, and sanitation, positive child interactions, and curriculum. Each Nanny carries a materials bag chock full of musical, academic, and play-based activities.

We believe that the childcare and education professions should be the most respected of occupations; and thus we feel that it is essential that caregivers and teachers be treated as legitimate employees, not under the table workers. To take a stand against unfair business practices and provide fair and equitable compensation, Nanny Recruiter pays employment taxes for all of our nannies, including workers compensation, personal/sick time, and health care. By supporting our Nannies with a wage and benefits they can live on, we ensure longer employment for our Nannies and stronger relationships with our families.

Hiring a Nanny is a significant decision in the life of any parent, and it's too important of one to make a mistake. Make Nanny Recruiter your final stop and we ll find you the last nanny that you will ever need.

Panda Bilingual Daycare

30 Cambridgepark Drive, Cambridge, MA

Starting at $1890/mo

Panda Bilingual Daycare is a bilingual Mandarin- English early educational childcare center combining the Montessori educational philosophy with Chinese and American language and culture. Our center's mission is to offer the highest quality care and education for children from three months to kindergarten entry.

The Panda Bilingual Daycare curriculum is inspired by many of the tenets of Maria Montessori's educational theory and practice, along with the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks and our own unique features. The core of the Montessori curriculum is divided into four main areas: sensory, practical life, language, and mathematics. Many of the materials and methods we use are derived from her work. The children will also explore cultural, scientific and historical subjects such as geography, geology, zoology and botany at levels appropriate to their development.

At Panda Bilingual Daycare, we encourage children to learn Chinese not only through art and music and literature, but also through listening and reading the Chinese children's classics such as The Analects, Tang and Song Poetry, which have been a part of children's education for thousands of years. These works of literature and philosophy and history remain relevant in our current society. The authoritative research tells us that exposure to literature from the earliest ages has significant and measurable results on brain development. Children thrive on being read to and interacting with books from the time they are born.

The outdoor classroom is an important part of our curriculum. Our outdoor classroom is surely a playground, in which the children can run and jump and play together. But it is also a natural extension of their classrooms, in which the children will have the daily experience of learning surrounded by a bit of nature. They can spend time noticing the animal and plant life, finding a bird's nest, watching the life cycle of a butterfly, growing and caring for plants, as well as playing in the sand, balancing on tree stumps, lounging in the child sized hammocks. Children can paint and draw what they see on the outdoor easels and experiment with sound and music on the thunder drum and musical fence.
