Poppy has the highest standards in the industry – yours

Poppy was started by a working mom that gets how nerve wracking it is to leave your child with anyone else. So average isn’t good enough for us. We only work with the best.

Ratings

Families and caregivers complete ratings after each booking to ensure we always have the right fit.

Madi was great! She arrived early, immediately engaged with our daughter, and there were no tears as we walked out the door. Madi seemed very kind, caring, and professional.

Ali was amazing! Our daughter was smiling and walking hand-in-hand with her to the park before we even got away from the house! We would love to see her again soon!

Alexandra was an all-star. She started talking to my 2 year old about her stuffed "friends." Throughout the night, she gave us quick updates to let us know things were going well. Thank you, Poppy!

What an absolute hit! Perfect match with our family's style of warmth, playful engagement, creativity & professionalism. Way to go, Poppy! Great meeting you, Michelle!

Didn't think I would love leaving my 3 month old for the first time with a non-family member but Alice made it easy. Clearly experienced and a great energy; my son was in great hands.

Susan is fantastic with my kids. She totally connected with my 4 and 6 year old and enthused their little spirits with an energetic kindness. Susan left little notes for kids to continue their pen pal game and kids read this morning with warm smiles on their faces.

Elya was awesome with my son. He came away with stories of submarines and ocean explorations and was so content.

Zoe is an exceptional nanny. Terrific with all three children, ages 1-6. She has a sense of humor, frank communication, and the house is always looking beautiful when we return. Zoe is a family favorite.
