OC Nannies and Newport Domestic Agency was established in 1983 for one main reason: to meet your needs. Whether you need a nanny, housekeeper, chef or cook, personal assistant, estate manager, caregiver, chauffeur, doula, or nurse, OC Nannies is here for you.


OC Nannies has been operating for over thirty-five years, and has established itself as the most qualified domestic services agency in Southern California. We take an approach to staffing that is second to none. The candidates we choose are not our employees—we exist to help you find qualified candidates. And we choose only the most qualified candidates, so that no matter who you consider, you’ll be in good hands. We are highly selective, and utilize a 74-point qualification process, to make sure each candidate is qualified and exceptional in every way. We then match candidates to your specific criteria, to make sure you have a good fit. We take the time to find someone who is right for your needs—the way it should be.
