We Advocate For You And Pair You With A Family That Will Be The Best Possible Fit For You.

The nannies that come on board with A Nanny for U are much more than just online profiles. We take a great deal of pride in building a relationship with you – we get to know you, we advocate for you and we bring forth job opportunities you won’t find anywhere else. We are an ongoing resource after placement, and we stay connected through our fun nanny networking events!

Nannying can be beautiful, fun, fulfilling, and sometimes exhausting work. You get to know a family deeply and help care for their greatest treasures. You are there for the good and tough days, the giggles and tears.

But who cares for you and helps you navigate issues that arise? We do and we take matching, supporting, and advocating for you very seriously.

Our in-depth screening process allows us to get to know you as a person, your interests, needs and strengths so we can place you in the family where you will thrive.

And, since we’ve been doing this for over 25 years, we have the most expansive network of wonderful families and can bring you job opportunities that you won’t find anywhere else.

This is why our nannies are with us much longer than other agencies: 85% of our nannies stay 2 years (or longer)!

What our Nannies Are Saying

Camille B

I can’t recommend this group enough if you’re interested in picking up a nanny position in the Seattle area. A Nanny for U helped me to find an incredible family in upper Queen Anne that I’m still working with as of this review. The process took less than a week and alleviated the stress of job hunting!”

Laura F

A Nanny for U is the best agency I have ever dealt with and I have over 20 years of experience as a nanny!

Unlike other agencies A Nanny for U doesn’t just match any nanny with any family. Rebecca actively worked with me to find a family that fit all of my needs and wants. She even helped me with negotiating my salary. I am so happy with the family that Rebecca found for me and couldn’t be more grateful for how she handled everything from day one.”

Sam M

I admit, I was worried about what I had signed up for, I don’t like change. I’m a seasoned nanny (30 years) and nearly three years ago I joined the temp team. It has been nothing but amazing through my career with them. The staff, families, and other nannies have been awesome to me. I want to thank Rebecca and her staff for taking the time to make sure we are all OK.”
