FreshChalk family! My childcare fell through, so my lovely and amazing 7-month old daughter and I are in need of a nanny, ASAP! I’m working full-time (from home) and would love to bring an experienced nanny into our home (and bubble). Might you have anyone you highly recommend? Perhaps your own kiddos have aged out of this phase and you have someone wonderful in mind? Thank you!
Hi Rebecca, I own Spilt Milk Nannies and would love to help. I don't typically do placements or long-term but with COVID I have lots of eager sitters that want to work with just one family. I believe I can help! Head to the website and submit an inquiry with timing and dates and I'll send you some options! spiltmilknannies.com
We have used Nannies Northwest multiple times over the years and Madison, the owner, just has had a certain knack for finding the right fit for us multiple times as our kiddos have grown and needs have changed. Most recently we found a great COVID fit for our early elementary twins this fall, and we are all happy with how it’s working out.
We went through this a few weeks ago. We've had nannies off and on for a decade now, hard to believe. This time around we did two things. We posted an ad on the Seattle Nanny Parent Connection facebook group, which led to a couple of credible candidates. We also used Kyla, the Seattle Nanny Consultant. She gave us a couple more highly qualified candidates. The whole thing was sorted out in under a week. Honestly it might've been faster if we hadn't been such sticklers for reference checks and covid safety.
Thank you, Adam! I'm sorry you went through this too-- nerve-wracking is an understatement. Turns out I'm also a big fan of reference checks and having a safe and tiny COVID bubble, so, much appreciated!
