meredith & co. is a place where you can connect with my team of experienced, loving child care providers in your neighborhood. no more searching, scrambling or worrying to find caregivers your children will love and you will trust.
Meredith's caregivers are personally vetted, trained and connected with your family. You can create your family's personal team of favorites to schedule with regularly and book with a new caregiver if needed.
Scheduling is completely flexible. Book as a little or as much as you need, date by date. Days, evenings, weekends- anything at all- just book two hours or more.
We have a $50 annual membership. The freelance caregiver rate is $20/hr for up to three kids in one family.
Each caregiver has been vetted for experience, references, background check, driving record, the international nanny association skills assessment and infant and child CPR certification.
We are a word of mouth neighborhood company based in the little east pocket of Los Angeles. (Pasadenaish) We hope every family finds us through another family who loves their caregivers.
Would you like to join us? We would love to connect! If you have any questions feel free to text Meredith to set up a time to chat at 310.498.8965.
My name is Meredith. I love plants and pizza, Star Wars and skiing, Beyonce and babies & lipstick and margaritas.
Oldest of seven grandkids, (the 7G we like to call ourselves), I spent the first half of my life in Europe and the second half in Los Angeles. I live in Highland Park with my sister where we like to host dinner parties where we don't cook. I follow the WNBA LA Sparks religiously and am a season ticket holder.
I was a full time nanny for two of my best friends since they were babies. Now they are 10 and 7 and make me go on scary ferris wheels and terrifying water slides but I still love them with all my heart. I created my career taking care of children for wonderful families in my neighborhood and helping other lovely people do the same.
I hope you will join us or send us a friend our way. :)
"I called Meredith & Co in a panic a few months ago when my scheduled babysitter canceled on me last minute. Meredith was able to provide me with EXCELLENT child care on very short notice. Kyra engaged my kids in such "out of the box" activities as building obstacle courses in their bedrooms in an effort to motivate them to read and brush teeth before bed. Needless to say, my kids love her and are always excited to have her return! More importantly, I feel very confident leaving my kids with the quality of care provided by Meredith & Co!"
"Working with Meredith has taken the stress out of finding child care. I used to spend a lot of time and energy finding sitters and then interviewing them, checking references, and building up trust. Often, after all that work, I'd still find myself scrambling to cover an evening out. Now, I send Meredith all our needs for the month, and she takes care of it. I know that any caregiver she sends is carefully selected and trained, so while we have regulars, I don't worry or do anything extra when it's someone new. Best of all, they are creative and energetic: the kids look forward to playing with them!"
"We first found Meredith when we were looking for a short-term but nanny to help fill the two month gap. Since our situation was unique, most traditional nanny agencies wanted nothing to do with us - but Meredith rose to the challenge. She spent the time to really get to know our family, and helped us better understand what we wanted from a caregiver. She sent us a variety of qualified, trustworthy and caring candidates. We were so pleased with our initial experience with Meredith, that now we go to her to help us source more caregivers for sporadic last-minute care - which has been a life-saver. We recommend Meredith & Co. wholeheartedly."
