OUR PHILOSOPHY
“Happy family with a nanny” is our motto. How do we achieve that you ask? We as a nanny agency, are a team of eager and knowledgeable staff ready to assess your childcare needs, and we carefully screen and identify the top caregivers in the PNW to find someone that compliments your unique family. Rebecca’s vision to create an agency with unsurpassed customer service and a commitment to placing qualified and trusted in-home care has thrived since its conception in 1994. Today we are the industry leader in placing Seattle & Eastside nannies, newborn care specialists, and household professionals.

  • Rebecca’s personal role model is the pioneer woman.
  • As horses are Rebecca’s family sport, she and all of the kids compete—Rebecca’s teenage girls rodeo, and her toddler son claims to be a future bull and bronc rider.
