About Us

CEO and founder Nichelle Harvey is a mother of 2 boys. Her oldest son is Autistic and like most new parents, in the beginning she struggled to balance her everyday life, working as an ICU nurse, and caring for her son. During a family vacation in the Dominican Republic, while sitting by the pool, she observed other families vacationing but was not really enjoying the full experience of what a vacation should be all about. Many of those parents were mostly hanging out with their kids or had to resort to participating in kid friendly activities for the entire trip. This too was Nichelle and her Fiancé’s reality and so this gave birth to the idea of Break Relief Sitters and Nannies. 

Nichelle decided to blend her passion for vacationing, her love for children inclusive of kids on the spectrum as well as kids with special needs, theme parks and self-care into one big melting pot of goodness. This blossomed into the business you see now.

This service caters to families with similar experiences which would consequently encourage more parents to embark on their dream adventures while on vacation or take a break while at an amusement park if they so desired.

Considering Nichelle’s personal experience and knowing firsthand of the anxiety parents usually have when entrusting their children in the care of others, she strives to offer an indelible service that is safe, inclusive, and fun. As our motto says, “take the break you deserve today, we work while you play”. 

Break Relief Sitters and Nannies provides the ultimate child care services for families who absolutely love traveling together, but crave the freedom of enjoying the adult aspect of their vacation. 

We are Autism/ Special needs focused but we cater to everyone.

We know you love an unforgettable trip, whether at a theme park or on your dream family vacation. 

As well as, we know all too well it can be quite overwhelming at times and consequently you may even need a vacation after your vacation.

This! Is where we come in. 

Break Relief Sitters and Nannies provides sitters and Nannies for families while their on vacation or at selected theme parks in California. Being on a vacation with family just got more exciting, because now everyone can truly enjoy their different adventures, kids and adults alike. 

My company also provide services as Airbnb host; as well as operating as travel companions for children and adults. We are cognizant of the fact that oftentimes when families vacation they are limited to family activities only. However, we have found a way to ensure that each family member enjoys that exhilarating and memorable experience to the fullest. We provide nanny care for the kiddos while the adults explore and enjoy the vacation
