Back-Up Care

Whether your nanny called in sick last minute and you have a can’t-miss-meeting, you need to find coverage for an upcoming school closure or you want to schedule a much-needed date night, our team of dedicated, trained, experienced, responsible, fully vetted and FUN caregivers are at the ready.

As a company that was built from the ground up by working Moms, we understand the challenges that arise when your regular childcare arrangements fall through.  Our mission is to provide families with quality childcare when they need it most.  Our stringest vetting protocols and commitment to working with ONLY the best caregivers (nannies that we would and do trust to care for our OWN children), make choosing SCA to be your go-to Back-Up care agency an easy choice.
