The Association of Premier Nanny Agencies (APNA) is a voluntary membership organization that establishes and enforces standards of professional industry practices. Agencies that put their contracts, forms, applications, and policies up for scrutiny by other agencies are a cut above. They are the best of the best. APNA agencies are accountable not only to families, but to their own trade organization, as well. In your search for the perfect nanny, make sure you are working with an APNA agency.
