I contacted Stacie from Crunch Care to get help finding a nanny for my twins. After learning of their finders fee structure, I realized that I could not afford their services. Even though I did not go with Crunch Care, the owner, Stacie, contacted me and gave me some tips and advice to help me find a nanny on my own. Her advice was SO helpful and truly invaluable. She told me what I should look for in a candidate, what the going rate is for top notch nannies, and how to conduct interviews. The nanny finding process I went through was very overwhelming with over 60 resumes for one position in about 2 weeks. Since I am not an expert, there were many times I thought I should just hire Crunch Care since it would be so much easier and they know what to look for. After all, I needed a great nanny for my kids! I found a nanny on my own and Stacie agreed to run a full background check for me. I would highly recommend Crunch Care. They were helpful, professional, and really want you to find a good match for your family.

Household assistant services delivered by Crunch Care in San Diego have always helped me a lot. I would always prefer and recommend taking up such services through Crunch Care only that provided me with highly skilled and caring professional. Thanks once again!

Crunch Care has been a great find for me and my family. After having my second child, they helped me find an experienced, professional , caring nanny who is now very much a part of our family. Stacie found multiple qualified candidates to interview and I feel confident any of them would have been great. I often use Crunch Care as well when we are in a bind and our regular sitters are not available. Every sitter they have provided have been well qualified and made us feel at ease when leaving our children. I highly recommend Crunch Care to all our friends and family.
My experience with Crunch Care was fantastic. They responded immediately with a wonderful nanny. I would highly recommend Crunchcare to moms in need of assistance at the last minute or long term as well as those in need of support for care of grandparents and other family members who need loving, caring, support.
As a social worker I’m very sensitive to who is watching my children, their interaction and willingness to assist above caring for my children with minor household stuff. I highly recommend without reservation Crunchcare.
There timely response, support and follow up is exceptional.
When we needed help with a nanny search two years ago, we called Crunch Care, and found our wonderful M. Stacie and her team took the time to understand our needs, get to know our family, temperament and found us a great match. Since then, Crunch Care is my go-to company for babysitters for myself and I refer people to them whenever I hear that someone has a child care need.
Crunch Care really takes the guess work out of the maze that is often excellent child care. I recommend them without hesitation.

Crunch Care has been a phenomenal resource for me! I have used them for both long term nanny placement and short term babysitting needs. They are incredibly professional, highly responsive, and very trustworthy. As a working mother of 4 children, they have helped me find the perfect child care fit for our family. It is always overwhelming and nerve racking to bring a new person into your home, but with Crunch Care’s thorough background checks and screening processes, it has been a wonderful experience. I highly recommend Crunch Care.

I have used Crunch Care for 3 years and have always been very happy with the quality and reliability of the sitters referred to me. Crunch Care pairs a family with a high quality care provider that must be interviewed, have a good driving record, agree to a background security investigation, and have good references, etc. I do not have a easy work schedule and have required sitters as early as 5am some mornings, Crunch Care has never let me down! My two daughters have loved every babysitter we have ever used through CC. I highly recommend them.
Crunch Care listened to our needs and helped us every step of the way with our search. They sent us several very qualified housekeeper/nanny candidates. Stacie provided detailed work and personal histories for each candidate | Dana M
How can I ever adequately convey my depth of gratitude to Stacie & my belief in her company for her help in my time of need? I am truly indebted to Crunch Care for their exceptional time and effort in selecting a caregiver for my mother. | Kris. D
I wanted to replace my existing nanny because I wanted a nanny who would be willing to perform light household chores while my one year old was sleeping 2-4 hours at time (we have a housekeeper who comes to our home to perform heavy cleaning). My current nanny was not willing to do so. What made this decision difficult was that my current nanny had a great relationship with my one year old son, whom she had cared for since he was 8 weeks old. However, as he was taking longer and longer naps, I felt as if she should be utilizing this paid time with light household duties. On the other hand, I was concerned about the effect on my son of changing the nanny at this age. He really enjoyed being with her. Upon the recommendation of two good friends, I decided to interview CrunchCare. I spoke with Stacie, the founder, at great length over the telephone. She explained her philosophy of nanny care, and educated me on the expected duties of a nanny. I realized she was right in that I would come home from a full day of work and despite being exhausted, I would perform chores which could have been completed by my nanny before I arrived home. I also expressed to Stacie my bigger concern of how the change in nannies would affect my son. Based upon her experience, Stacie felt that most children make the transition seamlessly. Stacie was able to schedule a number of nannies for my husband and me to interview. In addition, Stacie had already informed the nannies of our wants/needs and what we expect from them. The first nanny we interviewed was excellent. The second nanny was also excellent! Each nanny we interviewed was excellent. We would have been happy with any of the nannies Stacie provided – we could not believe it. It reached a point that we asked Stacie to stop scheduling nanny interviews because we had reached a point that we were comparing one excellent nanny to another excellent nanny. The decision process was very challenging because we were starting to compare the most minute details of one nanny to another nanny in an effort to find a discerning quality that would aid us in making the best decision. Throughout this process, Stacie was very supportive. She would not make the decision for us; rather, she would guide us in helping us think through our decision making. We finally chose our nanny. She is fantastic! Our son bonded with her in 4 hours, which was surprising because he was going through a period of stranger anxiety at this time. Our new nanny is so warm to our son, and to us. She is personable and has a generous nature. She enjoys laughing and being silly with our son. She is also very eager to perform light household duties. She even offers to do household activities which we did not request. We emphasize to our new nanny that her first priority is our son, that is, if he happens to nap for only 45 minutes, then we do not expect household duties to be completed. She understands this balance. Stacie has been in communication with us to inquire, and ensure, that we are happy with our new nanny. I highly recommend CrunchCare because of the quality of the nannies they provide, in addition to Stacie’s professionalism and expertise.
