Our mission


At Amsternannies, personal attention for families and Nannies comes first.

Our personal service makes Amsternannies unique among babysitting agencies. Do you need a Nanny? With one message we ensure that a good match is ready, so you don't have to make a selection yourself and wait for responses from the Nannies. Our account managers ensure that a Nanny is ready, even at the last minute, so that the planning is completely taken off your hands.

How it works

We schedule an (online) intake interview with each family, during which we would like to hear everything about your family. This way we can create an extensive family profile.

After the intake interview, we will look for the perfect match for you. If her profile appeals to you, we will schedule an introduction.
When both parties are enthusiastic, the Nanny can get to work.

We have regular contact with both the family and the Nanny, so that we continue to monitor whether everything is as desired.

We are available (almost) 24/7 for additional babysitting requests. We will arrange a replacement if a Nanny is ill or if you need a Nanny at the last minute. We ensure that there is a nice Nanny at all times.


We offer different types of babysitting services, tailored to the needs of the family:

  • Fixed Service (weekly recurring day)
  • Flexible Service (one-off & last-minute)
  • Holiday Nanny

  • NightNanny

  • MaternityNanny
  • Shared Nanny

  • Event Nanny

  • Manny

Find your perfect Nanny!

A good Nanny is worth gold. At Amsternannies we do everything we can to find the perfect match for you. We do this personally and do not outsource it to a platform. We think it is very important that you close the door behind you with a good feeling and know that the children have a good time with the Nanny. Personal contact with both the families and the Nannies is not only our starting point when making the match, this is an important part during the entire period at Amsternannies. We would love to meet you soon during an intake interview!

Become a Nanny

Get started with the nicest families in Amsterdam!

As an Amsternanny you can babysit for a fixed (midday) day per week or on a more flexible basis.
If you are still studying, it is sometimes more difficult to commit to a family for a longer period of time. We therefore also make a distinction between Nannies and Premium Nannies. In both cases, you have a lot of experience with babysitting and you really enjoy it. You are enterprising, proactive, flexible and also enjoy helping out around the house.

To become a Premium Nanny, follow the Nanny Academy program.

Register and we will ensure that you can get started quickly!

  • I have been a proud Amsternanny since 2017! Babysitting is very varied for me; I babysit for 2 permanent families 3 days a week and occasionally I add an evening. It's great to do fun things with the children and also contribute to their education together with the parents. It's great to see how they grow up and there is of course nothing more beautiful than when a child says: Kiki, you are really sweet!

Our story

We, Evelien Hunink and Dorine van Lith, set up our babysitting agency Amsternannies in 2014 because we are both convinced of the benefits of childcare at home. After more than 10 years of babysitting experience, setting up a babysitting agency was a logical choice for us at the time. Amsternannies is a young and fast-growing babysitting agency, with a large reliable network of Nannies. “The combination of our fields (business administration & special education), our experience and our network, makes Amsternannies the babysitting agency in Amsterdam.” We are now mothers ourselves, Evelien from Hugo ('18), Emilie ('21) and number 3 is expected in January '24 and Dorine from Julian ('19) and Cato ('21).

As a Nanny, they were happy to take care of baby twins, a toddler and the household at the same time, but as a mother with 'only' 2 children, you run out of time. We are so grateful for all those fantastic Nannies who make it happen every day!
