FAQ’s About Our Nanny Service in Seattle

Ask us anything about our Seattle Nanny Agency!How do I know ABC Nanny Source is sending a trustworthy caregiver into my home?


Would you invite just anyone into your home? Neither would we. Privacy and security is absolutely necessary to a happy life. Our extensive 10 Step Screening Process includes electronic fingerprinting, a Social Security Trace, driving record checks, criminal background investigations, a thorough drug test performed at a reputable lab, and reference verification. We assure you that each ABC staff member goes above and beyond; in confidence we present first class, qualified, and safe nannies.

Does ABC Nanny Source recruit locally or nationally? Are they considered a National Online Agency?

ABC Nanny Source requires that all of the nannies that we represent come to either our main office or a staffed recruiting location to meet with at least two placement counselors. We do not discriminate nannies based on ethnicity, religious preferences, age, or any other means of disqualification other than the safety and requirements stated in our assessment. Each individual will meet with a trained ABC Staff member, identification and fingerprints will be scanned. Validation of CPR, and arranging a drug testing appointment. We will walk through each step with our candidates as clearly as we can, making it stress free and joyful to become an ABC Nanny! Afterward, the candidate will meet with a second placement counselor for a face to face, in depth, interview detailing their experience and qualifications. The amount of care that ABC Nanny Source puts into each and every candidate is an impossibility for the National Online Companies. Our credibility surpasses that of a national agency, all the while, our passion is to serve locally!

What languages do your nanny speak? Is English their primary language?

Many of the Nannies in our database are multilingual; It is a requirement at ABC Nanny Source that each candidate can read, write, and speak English fluently. If you have a preference in addition to English,let us know in your application and let your placement counselor know when discussing details for the position!

Can we find the perfect match!? Is it possible to find an ideal fit between Family and Nanny?

Each Nanny will be familiar with your local area and are placed within a 30-minute radius of their home. In order to find the right match for each family, there are many factors to take into consideration. Secondly, each ABC Nanny must understand the position and feel completely comfortable with the entire job description and the unique needs and requests for your particular circumstance.

For example, if you have twins or a newborn infant, your ABC Placement Counselor would only send you candidates that have previous experience handling these particular situations!
r example, if you have a newborn infant, your ABC Placement Counselor would only send you candidates that are completely comfortable and experienced with caring for newborns!

ABC Nanny Source certainly is successful with the art of pairing lovely families with amazing nannies. It’s important to communicate the wages (hourly/salary) up front; this prevents confusion on either end. Families also have the option to specify a detailed description in regard to the “style” of Nanny they are looking for. For example, if you are looking for a Nanny who is bubbly, professional, nutritionally-minded, nurturing, or any other specific quality, we will find the one for you! We work tirelessly to present candidates that meet your criteria, being presented with the best suited individuals for your position!

What Type of nannies does ABC Nanny Source represent?

Full time live out, full time live in and part time live out nannies are all represented by ABC Nanny Source!

Our Seattle Nannies are full time, part time, live in, live out and temporary!What is the difference between hiring someone online myself, using online sources or ad postings? What does ABC Nanny Source provide that I cannot do on my own?


First, you will save countless hours going through endless candidates that are not qualified for some reason or another. Just imagine, with ABC’s 10% average acceptance rate, in order to find the 5 candidates that ABC will present to you, you would have had to interview, screen, and perform clearance checks on 50 applicants!!! Working professionals or busy parents like yourself don’t have that kind of time. Second, all ABC Nannies have undergone extensive interviewing, comprehensive reference checks, a Social Security Trace, electronic fingerprinting, criminal background,and drug testing, and a driving motor vehicle report long before ever being presented to you for consideration. Additionally, any nanny presented to you for consideration has already expressed a strong desire to work for you and care for your children. With an online search, you could put much time, effort, and expense into searching and clearing a potential caregiver, only to find out that she isn’t truly interested and was just “seeing what’s out there”. Lastly, ABC Nanny Source has a one year guarantee, which states that in the unlikely event that your Nanny does not work out, we would certainly work as quickly as possible to find you a suitable replacement.
