We are a professional staffing agency matching you with great in-home employees; nannies, family assistants, and home managers.

Overnight Care

We help you secure reliable, trustworthy care during your time away. We match your family’s overnight needs with a provider you have met.

Event Childcare

We provide care onsite at your conference or event, or for adults-only weddings and parties, creating a separate space for kid-centered activities & care.

Meet Genna Hackley

Founder

When my nephew was born in 2017, my perspective on life changed forever.

I was overcome by love and this caused me to take stock of what I truly enjoy doing: caring for families and children. I took my 15+ years of childcare experience and my organizing skills (I loved Tetris as a kid), and I began specializing as a temporary nanny.

I had more time to devote to my nephew and freedom to choose my work, going the extra mile for parents, and offering their children the same compassion and creativity I give my nephew.

I loved my work and soon I had so many requests, I could only help a fraction of the families myself. I began building this group of childcare providers, assembling the team with an eye towards excellence. To succeed, I utilized my professional background in HR, management, workplace safety, and program development.

What Our Clients Say

Genna and her team of sitters have been a vital resource for our family for the past two years. She's connected us with reliable and engaged caregivers who I trust, even for overnights when I have to travel out of state. They communicate well, go above and beyond with special activities, and have stepped up when one of my kids was ill. My daughter has such a close relationship with one sitter that she sometimes asks when I'll leave so that they can see each other! I'm deeply grateful for their support that makes my career possible and highly recommend Babysitters of Boulder.

We don’t have family locally, so have used Babysitters of Boulder a few times for nights out for dates, concerts, etc. Each time has been great! I trust their sitters, they follow any specific instructions, and my kids have LOVED them!

We’ve used Babysitters of Boulder a few times now and I have to say that we’ve had nothing but wonderful experiences. Not having to deal with the stress of finding a sitter and checking references ourselves has been a game changer. The process is so easy and makes me feel comfortable that we have a wonderful sitter coming in to watch our toddler. Our last sitter, Joy, came prepared with fun crafts to do with our daughter, and sent us pictures throughout the night while we were out. We will absolutely continue to use Babysitters of Boulder and would recommend to anyone looking for a sitter.

Babysitters of Boulder babysitters were great! They were attentive with the kids, followed our instructions and plan for the event (it was childcare for a group of kids at our church Christmas party) and the kids had fun and were safe.

We used Babysitters of Boulder for four kids from two families and had a wonderful experience with Joy! She sent us text updates during the day with photos and the kids seemed to have a wonderful time with her. She was experienced and confident, and the kids picked up on her gentle energy and seemed very comfortable. We would definitely use this service again when visiting the area!

Babysitters of Boulder has been truly game-changing for our family. If you want a user-friendly booking site, along with reliable and compassionate sitters, this is the place. Prior to using this agency, I had so much (unnecessary!) stress dealing with flaky caregivers that canceled last minute or didn’t text back / show up, it was disheartening and frustrating to say the least. Genna and her team of sitters are worth their weight in gold. UPDATE: Joy is now our part time nanny and she is simply wonderful! : )
