What Our Families Are Saying


“The professionalism that has been demonstrated by your agency is remarkable. I have worked with top names in every industry and was blown away by the service - I never knew finding a nanny could be treated like the purchase of a luxury product. Kudos to you, WN”

Richard L.

“When  my maternity leave ended and I was about to leave my first baby at home with a nanny, I was honestly petrified. You made this such a safe, easy process and for that, I am forever grateful.”

Lauren R.

“Thank you for placing Stephanie with us! She has been absolutely amazing and I don’t know how we ever managed without her. The girls love her and not a day goes by without Stephanie planning a fun art project or an exciting outing. She also jumps in to help me with dinner and organizing - a true gem. We’re referring everyone to you! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!”


“I couldn’t be more pleased with the service that Westside Nannies provides. From their prompt initial response to working with their staff to find the ideal nanny for our 2-year-old son…it was all such a pleasure! When Brooke walked in, my son, who normally doesn’t get excited about mama leaving, couldn’t stop saying “bye mom, bye dad” and waving at us. She even put him to sleep the first day and I honestly didn’t think that could happen – simply amazing! I recommend Westside Nannies to everyone with kids!”

Jesse DeSanti
