In 1988 the founder of Hometown Nannies+, Jayne Ehrlich, was an expatriate New Yorker/New Englander living in Malibu, California and writing for television. Suddenly, Jayne was faced with a five-month Writer’s Guild of America strike. A close friend thought Jayne was a “walking referral service” and a “natural-born matchmaker”. This encouraged Jayne to start a nanny and staffing agency called malibu mamas.
As business progressed Jayne had truly developed a world class business model in terms of service, honesty, and quality of applicants. Although the strike came to an end, malibu mamas was just beginning.
malibu mamas went on to be named the “Top USA Agency” by “W” magazine in 1998, and has received countless accolades from families and applicants as well as local and national media.
Jayne Ehrlich moved back to the East Coast with her family in 1990 and was amazed at how difficult it was to find a highly-qualified part-time nanny for her two boys. This is when she decided to open yet another great nanny agency based on the East Coast – Hometown Nannies+.
Hometown Nannies+ was opened on a part-time basis in Jayne Ehrlich’s family room in 1992. Initially, the company was a sub-division of malibu mamas however, in 2001 Hometown Nannies+ moved into an official office in Westport, CT. Jayne Ehrlich is still playing “match maker” today!
