WHAT OUR NANNIES ARE SAYING

” Sweet Peas is an amazing agency that connects you with local families looking for nannies or families that just need extra help with everyone’s busy schedules. Sweet Peas makes sure that they place or refer you to a family that is the best fit for both the family and your own needs. The family I nanny for is amazing, loving, and we really make sure that everything works out for both of us. The kids and I have developed an awesome relationship where I look forward seeing them! “

– Nanny Jenn

“I cannot recommend Sweet Peas highly enough! Working with Kristy was such a breath of fresh air. She thoroughly explained every step of the process to finding a nannying job and made it so stress-free and pleasant. She continues to check in with me over a year after getting my job and it is so nice to have someone so invested in their clients happiness! I have recommended many friends to both find nanny jobs and find their family a nanny from working with Sweet Peas & will continue to do so!”

-Taylor Schaad

“I was introduced to Sweet Peas Nanny agency through my husband’s coworker and I am SO thankful. Not only have they matched me with one, but two great families that I am able to work for.

I had nannied for a family in Florida for 7 years before I moved to Knoxville. I was desperately looking for a nanny position on my own and having no luck. Thats when I was introduced to Sweet Peas. I was able to meet up with Kristy for an interview within a few days of contacting the agency. She explained how the process would work and learned what I wanted in an employer and what hours would work for me, etc. Once she had all the information she needed I was able to interview with a family that she thought would be a good fit for me. Which, she was right.

I have also picked up babysitting jobs on the side when I’m not working for my regular family. All the families that I have met through Sweet Peas have been so kind and we have developed great friendships.

Kristy and the rest of Sweet Peas staff are so helpful and really care about the nanny and the families best interests. Kristy is constantly checking in with me and making sure everything is running smoothly and makes the whole process of looking for a family to nanny for a breeze. I highly recommend Sweet Peas Nanny Agency to any nannies looking for a family or families looking for a nanny to employ.”

– Paige Alford

“I have been working for a wonderful family for almost two years now and could not be more thankful for this avenue that Sweet Peas has provided for me. Sweet Peas works effectively and goes far and above in service to both their clients and those that are hired. As a full time nanny, not only have I created relationships with the family I work for, but I also have the security and dependability that Sweet Peas offers and provides faithfully.”

– Abigail

“Sweet Peas Nanny Service is a fantastic company to work with and I highly recommend their services. I moved to Tennessee recently and didn’t know where to start when looking for a nanny job. Sweet Peas reached out to me and I am so grateful they did! Jennifer helped me every step of the way. The whole process was easy from initial contact, to the interview process to finally finding a great family to work with. I highly recommend Sweet Peas Nanny Service for anyone looking to nanny, or for any family looking for reliable childcare through a nanny service.”

– Nanny Allison

“Sweet Peas Nanny Agency has been invaluable in helping me advance as a nanny. With their help, I was able to find an incredible family that makes me feel extremely appreciated and loved. Sweet Peas did a wonderful job explaining to both my nanny family and I the standards in the nanny community and has been extremely helpful with any questions I have had. I would recommend them to anybody in the Knoxville area looking to advance their career as a nanny!”

– Nanny Karah

“I’ve worked with children for 25 years and a friend encouraged me to consider being a nanny. I did not have a lot of luck on care.com but I met with Sweet Peas and Jennifer was so encouraging. I’ve been working for my nanny family for about a year and half now and just love the sweet family I work for now and I absolutely positively love my job! Thank you Sweet Peas!”

– Nanny DeAnna

“After 30+ years as a Pediatric RN, I left the hospital environment to work as a Baby Nurse/Nanny in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco for high profile clients. What an amazing adventure it was being able to see wonderful places all over the world while taking care of newborn babies! While home on a break, I met my husband in 2017 and gave up on my adventure and retired. Then, I read an ad for SweetPeas Nanny Agency…right here in Knoxville! It was exactly what I had been doing for the past 8 years, but here, in Knoxville!! Then I met Jennifer and Kristy! Through them, I met my precious family and my 17 month old sweet boy. He continues to rock my world right here at home in Tennessee.❤ No more airports and long trips away from my husband. Going home to my bed and my husband every night is the best of both worlds!! Thank you, Sweet Peas!!”

– Nanny Betsy

“I can’t say thank you enough to Sweet Peas Nanny Referral. I am an older nanny and was a bit afraid to make the change to be a full time nanny. Sweet peas took the time to get to know me and what was important to me and what would be a good fit for myself and family lifestyle. They matched me perfectly with my nanny family and I have been with them for over 2 1/2 years!! Since the birth of their child my nanny family has entrusted me and we have become family and friends. Sweet Peas and my nanny family have blessed me beyond words and I appreciate Sweet Peas so much for taking to the time to make sure they matched myself and my nanny family to match both needs. They truly listen to what both the nanny and nanny family is looking for. Thank you Sweet Peas!”

– Cindi Stooksbury

“When I was looking for a placement Sweet Peas went above and beyond! I have now been with my family of twin two year olds for a year and sweet peas has still been in contact with me! Couldn’t ask for a better company!”

– Nanny Carley

“I am thrilled Sweet Peas Nannies found me on a popular nanny searching website. With the amount of experience and extensive work I do in the homes of families I work for, it is nice to have an advocate. I highly recommend other nannies with excellent references to use this service. Jennifer and Kristy have been highly professional and understand their clients and nannies needs.”
