babbysitter-slider-butterfly-1.pngIt can be very overwhelming finding your way through the hiring process, or even finding the starting point. Our consulting services  help take the stress out of finding the perfect nanny for your family.


babbysitter-slider-butterfly-3.pngThe Kindred Network is a platform for families and childcare providers to connect with one another.   We have made it easy for families to view profiles and connect with local nannies and childcare providers.


babbysitter-slider-butterfly-2.pngWe have created an online store with resources for families to use during the entire process of employing their nanny.   Kindred makes finding a nanny and being an employer easy!

Who we are and what we do:

Kindred was founded on the idea that childcare should be about community. We created Kindred as a place to help families and childcare providers connect with one another in an easy, effective, and fun way!  Our goal is to be a helpful resource for families to find reliable, experienced, and nurturing childcare.  We help families with finding full-time, part-time, and as needed childcare through our consulting services and online network.

Kindred is the best of both worlds when it comes to finding childcare.  We know every family’s childcare needs are different, so Kindred allows our families to decide what is best for their individual needs by offering an array of different services to choose from.  We make looking for childcare easy and virtual – giving families access and the freedom to see the professional childcare providers in their area with ease.  And if families are looking for more of a one-on-one experience, we can help through our consulting services.

We are proudly serving families in Lexington, Louisville, and Madison County! Check out the services we offer our families.

Message from the Founder


ware-2016-jenfolio1img_9138I have worked as a professional nanny for more than 10 years and have been an agency owner for over three years. During that time I have learned a great deal.  I have taken all of my experience and created Kindred.  Kindred is more than just an agency – it is a place for both families and childcare providers to connect,  have access to expertise, and to be a resource that is tailored to their specific needs.  Kindred offers a wide range of services for families.  I wanted to allow families the ability to choose the experience they have when it came to finding the perfect childcare provider.helping-growing-families

I also love community! It was important for me to create a way for individuals and families to network with others in their community easily and effectively.  Kindred showcases the best childcare providers in local communities in Kentucky, so families can go to one place and find everything they need.

I love what I do.  I love working with families, and I get excited about helping childcare providers find fabulous families to work for.  But what I love the MOST is when a family and childcare provider become more than a working relationship.  Being a part of the connections that are made, being the reason people met, coaching individuals and families, and helping families lay the foundation for a successful hire – this is why I do what I do.  It is my true calling.  I created this agency to help families and childcare providers connect with one another in their communities. I am excited to bring Kindred to local communities in Kentucky!”
