Infant Care Specialists in Minnesota

Based in the Twin Cities, The Elite Nanny Team (TENT Group) is geared toward recruiting exceptional infant care specialists.


We serve most areas of the state of Minnesota. Our nannies undergo extensive prescreening to ensure they have the necessary skills to properly care for your newborn.


Each eligible nanny undergoes a background check and drug test. We favor nannies who live within 15 miles of your home to ensure their reliability.


Returning to work after giving birth can be hard. That is why we ask our nannies to send you pictures and videos regularly about your baby's day.

Our infant specialists are a minimum of 18 years old and have at least 2 years of professional experience. We thoroughly screen each nanny to make sure they have the skill set to safely care for your newborn.


Many precautions must be made. That is why it is essential our nannies prove to us that they know breast milk should never be microwaved.


We won't work with any nanny who feels it is okay to put a blanket in the crib. Some parents opt to use breathable crib bumpers.


It is important to The Elite Nanny Team any nanny considered for a newborn specialist position is completely knowledgeable about safety introducing solids to an infant.


They must utilize the many tricks to calm a crying baby who might be colicky. Diaper changes and preventing rashes are a must-know.  


And we strongly favor more educated nannies who are familiar with sleep training or are willing to be trained on it by our staff. 


In addition, we ask our experienced nannies to keep a nanny log about your baby's habits so the two of you can stay in sync which your child's ever-changing needs.

Can We Use a Nanny Cam?

Choosing whether or not to use a nanny cam is a highly personal decision. In some instances, it can relieve a new mother's separation anxiety.


On the other hand, some nannies are reluctant to work with families with nanny cams because they feel the parents don't trust them. 

One thing to remember is that we are in a very tight job market and a nanny cam can deter qualified candidates from working with a family. 

Do You Recruit Nannies with Twins & Multiples Experience?

Yes! We absolutely work with twins and multiples. Caring for many babies at once can be challenging and rewarding.

nanny we would recruit for your family will have to have previous multiples childcare experience.


They will also need to understand and embrace the importance of syncing the children's schedules.
