Family Testimonials

I cannot thank you enough for connecting us with Amanda. She was a DREAM.  My son was immediately comfortable with her and they had a ball the entire afternoon and into the evening.   We will be highly recommending your service for anyone coming through Portland.   Thank you so much for everything.
Casey, Hotel babysitting family

Thanks so much!!! Working with you has literally been my dream come true, Elizabeth!

Schwetz Family, Falmouth

” Cat was absolutely amazing. It is such a relief to come home and find your kids happy and having fun. I could definitely tell my daughter enjoyed her because she asked if she could return.  To be honest, and I was also honest with Cat, our kids we’re both a little bit at each other in the morning and angry with one another however, after Cat’s visit, they seem to have changed moods around and we’re getting along great the rest of the day.  Cat had no problem balancing what each child wanted to do and before I left the house heard her making a 15 min plan with them and asking what they enjoyed.

I’m sure she doesn’t need any more, but she is the 5 star sitter!
Thank you! ”

” Thank you so much Elizabeth!  I’m so impressed with how friendly, helpful and organized you are.  I’ve let some other moms I know who are considering hiring nannies for their babies/toddlers this fall that I think you seem really great to work with and that I definitely recommend contacting you.  We had Lily babysit our children, she the sweetest! My kids say to this day that she is their favorite too. She is just absolutely the nicest, most thoughtful person.  I hope things at school and with all else are going really well for Lily. That girl is amazing and is going to do outstanding things in this world.”

Reid Family, Falmouth

Portland Nannies is the best! My husband and I got connected to Portland Nannies through many families who recommended their services to us, and now I see why. Elizabeth and the team at Portland Nannies made it so easy to find qualified, vetted applicants for our summer needs. We were able to source, interview, and hire a wonderful nanny for our 6-month-old, Aster, all hassle-free. We’ll definitely be using Portland Nannies for years to come!

—The Steele Family, Prouts Neck

We’ve been so grateful for the care and stability that Barbara has provided. THANK YOU for jumping into action and securing a nanny who so perfectly aligned with our needs. It’s been a wonderful experience that I will be sure to share with other local families.

MacLeod Family, Falmouth

Portland Nannies has been incredible to work with! With our hectic schedule, it has given us so much reassurance to know that we had help scheduled before our son was born and that we will always be able to find help to suit our changing needs as our son grows.  Elizabeth has an incredibly thorough screening process, which means that we are very well informed on each candidate before we even met them.  The interview was largely a formality per ‘fit’ with all of the information we had at our fingertips.  We couldn’t think of a question that had not already been asked on the application.  We can’t say enough great things about Portland Nannies.

Hadiaris Family, Saco

We met Nanny Liz when Portland Nannies sent her to our hotel as a babysitter 5 years ago. We were visiting Cape Elizabeth and we needed someone to take care of our two children for the evening.  Since then, Liz has watched our children on numerous visits to the Portland area. She habitually arrives on time, with a bag full of toys and a high level of enthusiasm. She is always willing to accommodate our children’s needs and requests, often spending time with them playing a game or assisting with an arts and crafts project. Our children really look forward to spending time with her.

Portland Nannies did an outstanding job screening qualified applicants to meet with our family.  The service provided was top notch, and was extremely efficient during a time when we had very little time to find a nanny.  Portland Nannies led us to the perfect person for our family.  All of our expectations were exceeded.  We are grateful to Portland Nannies.

Portland Nanny Service Maine

Elizabeth and the folks at Portland Nannies listened to our criteria and did a great job providing a large number of well-qualified candidates in a short period of time.  We were quite surprised at both the number of the candidates and how well they met the criteria we provided to Elizabeth.  It was a great feeling to know that the candidates had been thoroughly screened, including background checks.

The Ryan Family, Scarborough
Portland Nanny Service Maine

Portland Nannies was very helpful and accommodating in sending us highly qualified nanny applications for review.  Their service was much easier than having to place newspaper ads.  I appreciate all of the background work that was done for us on the nannies.

The Midgette Family, Brunswick

I was in a massive bind, my lined up sitter called out and thus I needed help and right then!  I had called everyone I could think could help and no one was free on such short notice.  I was panicking so I called Portland Nannies.  Elizabeth was amazing!  Within ten minutes I had a confirmation of a nanny who was available.  The nanny was absolutely amazing; she was kind and played with my daughter the entire time.  A thank you is simply not enough when you are in a bind up to your neck, but thank you Portland Nannies!


The Tolman Family, OOB

Portland Nannies made it very easy and efficient to find a care provider for our child.  Having the background checks, references, etc. readily available made a huge difference.  The applications forwarded to us met our needs and expectations; there were certainly some outstanding candidates!

The Zimmerman Family, Portland

Portland Nannies provided a professional and experienced set of applicants.  We were very pleased with the interviews and the entire process.  I would absolutely recommend Portland Nannies, they have a stellar quality of applicants and great customer service.

Downing Family, Kennebunk

I am so glad that i decided to use Portland Nannies.  Not only did they have great candidates, but the interview process is much more thorough than I would have ever been on my own.  It gives me much peace of mind, as well as it made this challenging process a breeze.

Bourgeois Family, Portland
Portland Nanny Service Maine

I would most definitely recommend Portland Nannies to my friends.  Elizabeth was so helpful and patient with me!  This was a stressful time and Elizabeth did a great job listening and making some suggestions.  I was very impressed with the quality of nannies.  There was tons of experience and diverse backgrounds.  Portland Nannies went above and beyond what I was expecting.

Strattard Family, Gray

I highly recommend the Portland Nannies service. My family recently attended an event in Portland. We needed a nanny but we had no connections in the area and were uncomfortable with the risk of an unknown caregiver. Elizabeth was very responsive, listened to our requirements, and quickly identified a great nanny candidate. Best of all, she backed this up with complete reference information which put our mind at ease. Our Nanny was a perfect fit for our needs.

The Loughlin family, Boston, MA

I would most definitely recommend Portland Nannies and already have!  Elizabeth could not have been more helpful and efficient.  She operates her business with honesty and respectfulness, which is so rare today.  The thought of leaving your child with someone other than yourself can be excruciating.  Sometimes life’s circumstances demand it.  You can trust Portland Nannies to guide you and help you make the right choices.  Portland nannies is only a phone call or email away and you always get a quick response.

Fournier Family, Westbrook

We have found several candidates we liked, their portfolios were very detailed. The service has been very helpful and provided qualifies applicants that we would not have been able to find on our own.

Elizabeth worked closely with us to help us figure out what we needed and then found a nanny who was a perfect fit for our family. She made an overwhelming process easy.
