Families

Comprehensive Background Checks and References 

We understand the challenges parents face in finding childcare that makes them feel at ease. Our top priority is ensuring your family can choose from reputable nannies who are committed to your child(ren)’s well-being. We spend hours verifying a nanny’s years of experience and reliability with the most up-to-date screening procedures. Our background checks are completed through a top-tier, national company that provides extensive reports. Our agency speaks with each reference from nannies to confirm the quality of their work ethic and provide families with a detailed description of every call.

In-person Meetings  

We meet with potential families and nannies in person to provide successful placements. We believe matching your family with the right nanny begins with listening to your unique needs. We serve a variety of clients from stay-at-home parents to physicians to CEO’s and high-profile families and work diligently to fulfill their requirements. With your busy schedule, we understand reviewing a stack of nanny resumes would leave you drained and maybe discouraged. Our focus is to make your search a smooth process by reviewing hundreds of resumes and providing a select few candidates to satisfy your needs.

Legal employment 

Our agency highly values integrity. We represent trustworthy and professional nannies who agree to declare their salaries to the IRS. We stay well-informed of our industry’s current standards and will help you write employment agreements and provide efficient tools for payroll. Honesty is always involved as we work to provide a nanny with the experience that best suits your childcare needs.

What They're Saying

"I told my husband literally last night that meeting Amy from East Wind Nannies was a gift!  She has gone so over and beyond for me in every way! Her job was to help us find a nanny, but she ended up doing so much more. I loved spending time with her doing the interviews (it was fun!) and she made me feel confident in my decision and helped me make the choice that was right for me. She has been 'on call' for me every step of the way. She sent me the sweetest, most caring emails right after I gave birth and was overwhelmed, and encouraged me as a first time mom! Still when I email her now, she responds so quickly and more importantly, so, so, so thoughtfully"

"Outstanding nanny service! East Wind Nannies was exceptional to work with. Amy is highly professional and truly worked hard to find us the best nanny in a very short period of time. Amy met with our family, got to know us, and provided guidance on every aspect of hiring a nanny. I would absolutely use East Wind Nannies in the future and would recommend it to any person who is looking for a nanny. This is a very well run company that provides excellent service. As people new to the nanny business, Amy's expertise was essential. Most importantly - she found us a wonderful nanny who I trust completely with our baby! East Wind Nannies made finding a wonderful nanny easy, straightforward, and very comfortable.”

"Amy at East Wind Nannies blew me away almost immediately. She was absolutely professional in every sense, from her approach to my family’s specific needs down to her press kit and company materials. Her references were impeccable and from the minute I spoke to her I instantly felt comfortable. She even came to our home and spent an extensive amount of time getting to know what we were looking for. My only disappointment is that I won’t get to interact with Amy now that she’s found us someone!”

"When John and I realized we needed to hire a nanny, I knew right away I would be calling Amy from East Wind Nannies.  I had been on the other side of the interviewing table just a few years prior and was placed by Amy to work as a nanny for an adorable little girl.  Prior to working with East Wind Nannies I had been teaching Kindergarten for several years and earned my M.Ed.  Quite honestly I was surprised she was so strict with the interview process.  Even with all my certifications, experience, and education, she said she would not be able to re-schedule my interview when I called to tell her my electric was out the very morning of my interview.  I did manage to arrive on time and was later placed with a family who I'm still in contact with today.  It was for this reason I knew I wanted to use East Wind Nannies when we were ready to hire a nanny of our own.  I wanted someone who was dependable, educated, and loving.  Amy gave me her honest opinion of which nanny she thought would be able to meet our needs and fit our family.  I am so grateful for her honesty and integrity.  Our nanny is vibrant, kind, and on time!  I would not hesitate to work with Amy again."

"I highly recommend Amy and East Wind Nannies. Amy is professional. Personable. Smart. Has excellent follow through. We recently moved to Pittsburgh from New York City, where we had to leave a nanny who had become like part of the family. While I was accustomed to leaving my children so I could work, I was feeling nervous and anxious about the prospect of replacing our previous nanny. Amy listened to our concerns, and we now have someone who has fit into our lives seamlessly. My children are squeaky clean, fed and most importantly, laughing and having a ball when I get home. I will use Amy's services in the future and will continue to recommend her. What could be more important than who you leave your children with? Amy's services are worth EVERY Penny.”
