Services

Full-time and Part-time Nanny

A full-time nanny, typically working 35+ hours a week, provides long-term stability to help your child(ren) thrive. A part-time nanny, typically working 8 – 35 hours per week, can fill the gaps in your busy schedule.  We recommend a consistent schedule to have the best options for long-term, part-time nannies.  Nannies will help with all childcare related tasks including feeding, bathing, and driving children to activities.  Most nannies are happy to help with child-related, light household tasks such as children’s laundry, children’s dishes, cleaning up the children’s messes, tidying the children’s room, and light errands. 

Pay Rate: $18-25 per hour gross

Nanny Share

Two families can share the same nanny for either full-time or part-time placement. Not only do parents benefit from a lower hourly rate by splitting the cost, children also benefit from quality time for socialization. We would be glad to help you (at no cost) find other families to do a nanny share. Check out our Nanny Share page to find other families seeking a match.

Pay Rate: $22 – 28 per hour gross

 

Sitter

Our sitters are perfect help for temporary jobs needed for date nights, hotel care and back-up care. We provide quality nannies with experience in long-term jobs who are available to give occasional help. There is a daily booking fee of $40 per day and $20-22 per hour for a sitter plus the cost of any parking fees. Shifts last a minimum of 4 hours. 

Newborn Care/Overnight Care

All new parents wish their baby would come with a manual. Our newborn care specialists (NCS) are the manual. These specialists are experts in newborn care. They provide temporary care, assisting parents in developing healthy eating, sleeping and other baby care routines. These specialists can help families achieve a restful night of sleep by feeding newborns, rocking them to sleep or bringing the baby to a nursing mom during overnight hours. 

Pay Rate: $25 – 28 per hour gross

Household Assistant/Manager

These nannies are available to be your family’s personal assistant. Many modern families now find they need an extra hand beyond childcare to help their lives run more smoothly. Our household assistants/managers do it all:

  • running errands
  • helping prepare dinner
  • handling laundry
  • planning your next dream vacation
  • being a liaison with schools, doctors and coaches
  • managing household staff
  • preparing for birthdays

Our candidates love to multi-task, have a keen sense of organization and a high level of professionalism. They are well-equipped to wear many hats to serve your family. Your household assistant/manager keeps your home running smoothly so your family can focus on what is most important.

Pay Rate: $22-28/hour gross

 

Mannies

Hiring a manny ensures you are giving your child a consistent, positive male role model.  Male nannies tend to take an active approach to child care helping your child burn energy by the time you arrive home.  Fewer males pursue a childcare career, but you can trust that if you are seeking a manny, East Wind Nannies will work hard to find a manny for your family. 

Pay Rate: $18-25/hour gross

 

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.

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!

"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.”
