What Others are Saying

We recently used the Washburn Agency for help with nanny placement. We had previously tried many different avenues to find childcare and it was proving to be difficult in a Covid world. I worked with Diana at the Washburn Agency. She listened in detail to what I was looking for in a nanny and within less than a week she had provided us with 3 incredibly qualified and enthusiastic candidates. The candidate we ended up hiring has been wonderful. She is caring, qualified, experienced, and professional. The Washburn Agency made the entire process seamless. After months of searching, it was a relief to have the trusted care we needed in our home. I highly recommend this agency.

I just hired a Nanny through The Washburn Agency and was very happy. The process was quick and we had several excellent candidates to choose from. Sarah was very helpful throughout the whole process, assisted in putting together a work agreement, walked us through the negotiations, and is extremely responsive to emails and phone calls. Highly recommend!

The team did a wonderful job finding our full-time Nanny in Boston. They listened carefully to the specifics of what we were looking for and presented a small group of candidates who had been well vetted that perfectly met our criteria. We feel very grateful that the Washburn team helped us find a nanny who our daughter loves and we fully trust! It was a smooth, efficient process, and are thrilled with the outcome.

I have only ever had positive experiences with Sarah and her team. She is professional, funny, down to earth, and knows the industry well. Sarah supports the nannies she places as well. She has only ever wanted to best for everyone. Sarah researches top-notch professional nannies to give her clients the best of the best. As a professional nanny and someone who organizes events for nannies, I have never had a bad experience with Sarah of her team. I would and do recommend her to nannies and families.

I worked with Diana at The Washburn Agency trying to find a full time nanny family in spring/summer of 2020. Diana and the company were very professional, thorough, and extremely helpful in finding me the perfect placement! I interviewed with a few families and each time discussed feedback and my feelings regarding each family with Diana. It was not long before Washburn helped me to find a family that checked all the boxes in my search for a job and I am now happily working for an amazing family because of this great company. I highly recommend Washburn Agency to any nannies looking for a job and families looking for educated, professional caregivers for their children!

After years of teaching, I decided it was time to change career paths and get into a Nanny position. I learned of The Washburn Agency through my job search with Care.com. I immediately reached out to them through email and heard back right away. We set up an appointment to meet and had a great conversation. Meg was so kind and helpful! She assured me we would find the right family for me and she was absolutely correct! I am working for a wonderful family and couldn’t be happier! I highly recommend reaching out to Meg and Sarah at The Washburn Agency. They are good people and consummate professionals!

We had such a pleasant and positive experience working with them. My husband and I have a very chaotic household with 3 young children, his crazy travel schedule for his business as well as my own business and volunteer commitments. The agency was extremely attentive to our long list of requests for a nanny and successfully found us someone who fits perfectly into our family and busy lifestyle. I greatly appreciated the thorough background check and extensive interviewing process. I just don’t have the time, nor do I have the resources to do these things to the extent at which they do. Knowing our children are in safe, capable and loving hands is most important. I’m so glad I didn’t try to tackle this nanny search on my own. Having been a nanny and now a mother herself, I felt I could fully trust Sarah’s judgement in the hiring process.
