What’s New

Hello Nannies,

Summer is sadly coming to an end and as always, it seemed to go by too quickly.  While I know many folks look forward to the fall season, I am not quite ready to say goodbye to the sunshine especially after this amazing weekend!  There is a lot of unpredictability in the nanny industry but one that that has always remained true, that August/September is our busiest transitional period of the year.  I want to thank you all for your patience and understanding if I wasn’t able to answer your call or get right back to you.  I want you to always feel like I am here for you, available, and that you are my priority but I am aware that this time of year I am not as quick with my responses.  

Things are back to a more normal busy pace at the office and I am looking forward to catching up with some of our newer nannies and nannies that are just starting with their new families.  I want to welcome  our newest nannies with Portland Nannies- welcome Nanny Kate, Destiny, Lynn, Sarah, Laura, Micheala, Tammy, Ashley, Taylor, Lisa, Bridget, Alison, June, Sara, Elizabeth, Hannah, Maria, Stefanie, Jenn, and Emma.  I would like to welcome back nannies Meghan, Julia, Gia, Kristen, Katie, Shelby, Ashley, Amanda, Carly, Laurie, Dayla, Karla, Erin, Carol, Mary, Diane, Alexis, Noralee, Jen, Lynne, Aliza, Katie, and Meaghan!  I am grateful having such wonderful, professional childcare providers representing my agency! 

The International Nanny Association is excited to support all the hard working nannies during interNational Nanny Recognition Week  September 22-28, 2019.

And 2019 is off to a busy start here at Portland Nannies!  We had yet another record breaking year with 2018 being our most successful year to date.  Many thanks to all of our families and nannies in trusting in our agency.  We welcomed many new nannies to Portland Nannies and continued our relationships with nannies that have been with us for years.  Recently placed in their newest families are nanny Jaime and Nanny Storm who have been with us for over 20 years and Nanny Emily with us for over 10 years.   We appreciate working with you all of these years and look forward to many more.  Portland Nannies is looking to add to our pool of nannies, if you know of any qualified providers please have them apply with us.  We offer referral incentives for any nanny referrals that are placed in a position with our agency.   We are a word of mouth business and appreciate all of your support.

Portland Nannies has been helping families and nannies since 1985.  This past year was our most successful year yet.  In 2017 we worked with over 200 families to find their perfect childcare provider- this included over 30 full-time nannies, over 30 part-time nannies, and about 150 babysitters, hotel sitters, and on-call/emergency sitters.  Thank you for trusting in Portland Nannies, it has been an incredible year!
