About Us


Oliver’s Nannies of Millburn, NJ opened for services on November 14th of 2018 and was quickly embraced throughout the area as a childcare solution offering flexibility and peace of mind. The concept of accessible and tailored child care came to life as founder, Kathy Livingston, experienced her own struggles in finding a solution for her young son.

Daycares often come with significant waitlists and restrictive hours, while hiring a nanny directly can feel like an after-hours job in management.  Families need a team and a place to go with reliable care providers. Thus, Oliver’s Nannies was born as an agency unique in an approach with 24/7 availability to an office staff trained to provide nannies and babysitters matched with each family.

The surrounding areas of New Jersey and New York City welcomed the unique childcare approach with open arms.  It didn’t take long before calls started coming in from other states and areas within the country.  It became quite clear Oliver’s Nannies is a solution needed by families all over.

In 2022, Kathy Livingston teamed up with Ross Goodson to develop an opportunity for entrepreneurs to bring this concept to life through purchasing an Oliver’s Nannies franchise.  

Kathy and Ross are committed to continuing the mission of developing child care solutions and a successful model for franchisees throughout the community.  The Oliver’s Nannies model is designed to bring quality of life to families and this extends to the franchise community.  Kathy and Ross are focused on supporting others in achieving work life balance while implementing a successful franchise.
