About The Owner
Franca Favia, Owner
Wish Upon A Nanny is an established, owner operated Chicago Agency founded by Franca Favia, nanny of ten years. She simply wanted families to enjoy their search in ﬁnding the right nanny and not have it be overwhelming, time consuming and stressful. Franca has been a nanny for over ten years and throughout this time she has realized that many families just don't have the time, energy or the ﬂexibility in trying to ﬁnd a ﬁt while balancing a household. She also became aware of the tremendous importance and need for competent, consistent and inﬂuential child care to help our children grow successfully through the stages of critical child development. Wish Upon A Nanny was developed for families in need of great child care and for nannies who wanted a fulﬁlling role as a child care provider.
