About College Nannies, Sitters and Tutors

In the summer of 2000, business school student Joseph Keeley took a job as a nanny in Edina, Minnesota. He recognized a need for a service to connect parents with safe and reliable nannies and tutors, so he created College Nannies & Tutors in 2001 to help match families with college students, graduates and teachers. Based in Wayzata, Minnesota, the company began franchising in 2005.
