As a new mom I was nervous about hiring a nanny, but now I couldn’t be more pleased. I’ve sung your praises to everyone I know.

San Jacinto College

San Jacinto College is a community college in the greater Houston area that was established to serve the Channelview, Deer Park, Galena Park, La Porte and Pasadena Independent School Districts. After expansions, the district now includes all of the Sheldon Independent School District, along with portions of Clear Creek and Humble. In December of 1999, $91 million dollars in general obligation bonds were issued to San Jacinto College, allowing for the addition of six new buildings that include an Interactive Learning Center and a Fine Arts Center, along with infrastructure improvements. Main campuses include San Jacinto College Central in Pasadena, San Jacinto College North in Houston and San Jacinto College South, also in Houston. The network includes additional extension centers in Webster, Houston, Galena Park and Pasadena. An extension program called Clear Horizons Early College High School allows high school students to earn their associate’s degree in a chosen field while they complete their high school education, while a vote in May of 2008 allowed the earmarking of and additional $295 million for improvements to the existing library and physical education facilities, along with the creation of updated science and allied health facilities.

Despite suffering significant damages to all three campuses during the 2008 hurricane Ike, the leadership and innovation of the faculty and determination of San Jacinto’s students allowed classes to resume less than three weeks with a dedicated plan that would allow every student to complete the semester on schedule. As a result, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools awarded San Jacinto re-accreditation that fall.

School Colors

Because the three main campuses each have their own athletic programs, there is no consolidated set of colors common to each campus. Instead, athletic teams at San Jacinto College North are signified by green and gold, while the Central and South campuses use light blue.

Theme Song

Like most community college systems, San Jacinto College has no dedicated Alma Mater or Fight Song. The three separate primary campuses do have their own athletic teams, and as such, their own cheering traditions.


┬áJust as the three primary campuses have different athletic traditions and school colors, they also have three separate mascots that signify each campus. San Jacinto College North’s mascot is the Gator, San Jacinto College Central uses the Raven and San Jacinto College South students call themselves the Coyotes.

Nanny Recruiting

We actively recruit qualified students with an interest and aptitude for childcare from San Jacinto College, and carefully match each applicant’s parenting philosophies, disciplinary styles and scheduling availability with the needs and expectations of every employing family in order to ensure that each placement is a perfect fit. Our placement methods minimize turnover and create a fulfilling working environment for both our clients and the childcare providers that contract with them.

Nanny Screening

Because we understand that allowing a relative stranger to enter your home, care for your children and have access to your personal belongings can be a bit frightening, we carefully screen each of our applicants before they’re matched with a family. Past employment verification, criminal background checks and driving records searches are all part of our system, which ensures that no applicant has a criminal record or a history of moving violations and driving related offenses. We also carefully screen applicants against the National Sex Offender Registry to provide you with the peace of mind you need to confidently leave your children in the hands of your new private, in-home childcare provider. We’re so committed to making sure that your children are under the best possible care that we also offer our comprehensive background services to all clients, even those who have chosen to conduct their search for a childcare provider through avenues other than our own in-house placement system. Whether your potential nanny is an applicant we’ve suggested or one that you discovered through an online classified service, the newspaper or even referrals, we’ll carefully check their backgrounds so that you can make a safe, informed decision.
