Stanford Park Nannies Receives Prestigious Childcare Industry Award!

Each year, the  Association of Premier Nanny Agencies  recognizes one agency in the country with the Honors Award for Excellence. The purpose of this award is to acknowledge an agency that not only meets but also exceeds APNA standards in its daily business practices. As Stanford Park Nannies celebrates their 20 th  year with these standards as their guide, they not only talk the talk, but they walk the walk of excellence. They are the proud recipients of the 2017 APNA Honors Award for Excellence.

Daryl and her team at Stanford Park Nannies are motivated by the bigger picture of advancing the in-home childcare industry, respecting everyone they serve, and continuing to lead by example. While many agencies uphold APNA standards and promote best practices, Stanford Park Nannies exceeds these high standards daily, even in the face of adversity.

This award acknowledges Stanford Park Nannies for being a living example of excellence, and serves as an inspiration to those in the in-home childcare industry.
