What people are saying about us
We were not happy with our nanny and wanted to replace her. But how do you fire someone who works in your home every day caring for your child? And how do you find someone new to take her place?
That’s when we discovered White House Nannies.
White House Nannies was there for us every single step of the way. From coaching me on how to let our nanny go (everything from how to do it, what to say, what kind of severance to offer), to finding us the perfect replacement, they helped guide us through a very difficult process, and saw us over the finish line.
Today we could not be happier. We have a nanny that is not only great at her job, she is like part of the family. It melts my heart to hear my daughter say, “I love you” to our nanny each night when she leaves to go home.
There are few things more important than finding the exact right person to help care for your children. They are not easy to find. So thank God for White House Nannies. I hope our current nanny is with us a very long time, and I never need to look for another one. But if I do, the first call I will make will be to White House Nannies. – (Permanent Client)
Thank you for your assistance in setting us up with Rosina as a nanny for our visit last week. She was so great to work with and took excellent care of our son. Coming in from out of town and hiring someone we did not know was a little nerve racking, but she was absolutely wonderful. She was also incredibly flexible as our schedule and times kept changing, and she really worked with us to ensure our childcare was taken care of so we could attend all of our events. – (Hotel Client)
How can I thank you enough for what you and White House Nannies have done for me? When you first met me 4 years ago, I had just graduated from AU. I felt lost and unsure of myself, and my future. Not only did you find me the most incredible family to work with, you helped me find a little bit of myself.
Now you have done in again finding me the perfect position. Honestly, I finally feel like the confident strong woman I always knew I was. I can’t thank you enough gor what you have done. You have changed my life in so many ways, for that, I am eternally grateful. Thank you! – (Perm Nanny)
I got great feedback from the families. I know it was a small group for your team, but it was a hit. And I was able to not worry about that one small, but important, portion of conference for Saturday and Sunday. I’m truly grateful to your team, as are the families. One in particular reached out to me that I’d like to share a bit with you. He was very worried that his daughter wouldn’t react well, but afterwards said that having the daycare your team provided actually made his entire conference experience exponentially better. On behalf of my whole team, thanks so much!I look forward to working with you again. – (Conference Coordinator)
Everything went smoothly and the nannies were fantastic. I heard really wonderful things about them all day and every time I walked past the childcare room, kids were laughing and having a blast. Please extend my thanks to the nannies! –(Event Client)
Thank you so much for everything on Saturday. People really appreciated the childcare and were so impressed with how good your staff were with the kids! Everyone was saying it was “toddler heaven” in there. – (Happy Bride)
I just wanted to drop you a quick note to tell you how incredibly sweet Amy is. I’m not sure if she told you, but I ended up having to rush Reagan to the hospital last week because she had such a high fever. I wasn’t able to call Amy in time so she was here seeing me in total panic.
Everything turned out fine by the end of the week. But, to our surprise Amy had sent the most adorable stuffed bear for Reagan wishing her well in her recovery. It was so unbelievable and I wanted to let you know how thoughtful and caring she was. This is really such an incredible reflection of what a great job you all do with recruiting sitters. We are just so thrilled with your service.
Hopefully, we can use Amy again soon in the future. She gets a double thumbs up from me – and Reagan! – (Temp Client)
Abigail was amazing! Both Haleigh (Guest Relations Manager) and I were singing her praises each day! – (hotel guest)
I had one of your nannies, Debora, watch my three children Mon – Wed this week as part of the Back-up Care program my company uses. I just wanted to let you know that Debora was excellent. I had never used Back-up Care or White House Nannies so was a bit hesitant and nervous to leave my 9 month old with a stranger. But, Debora was extremely professional and it was obvious that she has a ton of experience with children, especially babies. She did a wonderful job. I was impressed each of the three days with how well she followed the instructions (though she probably didn’t even need them) / schedule for my baby and engaged my two older children in activities after school. She was fabulous!!! – (Temp Client)
We were excited to do this interview with Joe Heim at the Washington Post just as we begin our 30th year in business. – View Full Article
Everything went really well from our point of view. The nannies, as always, are so professional and great with the kids. We feel we’re in such capable hands when they’re there. (Event Client)
I wanted to say Thank You for being my agency of choice and all you do in support of nannies! I have/had now 3 good families plus some temporary work and enjoyed working with you all in making that possible! – (WHN Nanny)
We had decided to make our wedding open to children as most of our guests had young family members. We realized at a certain point that we did not have the resources to cater to so many young children. Thus we decided to use a professional service and chose White House Nannies based on their positive internet presence. We were very lucky with our choice. Their team of nannies are on staff at all times, they have undergone a thorough background check and have had much experience handling events like ours. We are so happy we decided to use White House Nannies. It made for an incredibly relaxing evening. Parents were happy, kids were incredibly happy. Considering that most of the children were under the age of 4, we expected at least one or two meltdowns. Instead, the children were so comfortable in the space created by White House Nannies, they refused to leave and come to dinner. Many children had to have their dinners taken to them because they were having such a good time. We had nannies based on the ages of the children, we also had a toy package which I highly recommend -which was also based on the ages of the children. It meant that we and our friends could sit back and relax and enjoy our wedding and that parents did not have to worry about their small children. Thank you White House Nannies for helping to make our day so special. We have heard so many positive comments from the parents who took advantage of your services on the work you did. We look forward to using you again whenever the need arises. (Bride- Wedding Event)
I cannot express how wonderful your nannies have been for my family over the past few months! I can’t say enough great things about your service and have recommended you to many of my colleagues! I feel like you are the hidden gem that keeps DC running! (Temporary Client)
Loved having White House Nannies apart of our client’s wedding – there were many children in attendance but our client wanted to have lots of helping hands and activities on hand for the littlest guest so their parents could enjoy the party. The team was wonderful to work with leading up to and on the wedding day. Highly recommend this very professional team!! (Annie- Wedding Planner)
We LOVE our nanny! Out of the literally dozens of caregivers I’ve had for my 4 kids, she’s stellar. She’s happy, responsible, keeps communication open, takes initiatives, loves our youngest, is smart, enjoys the older kids, I could go on. I hope she stays a long long time! Again, many thanks for matching us up, I’m truly grateful for your time and effort in finding us the PERFECT nanny for my family. – (Permanent Client)
Thank you, Richard, for allowing us the use of your services for our event. The caregivers you sent our way were marvelous! My adult children were so very impressed with their competency, their interactions with the children, and their pleasant attitudes they apply to their endeavors. They allowed our whole family to enjoy the celebration immensely. We will absolutely call you again in the event of needed services in the future. – (Event Client)
I have already referred several people to White House Nannies because we could not be happier with how responsive you were and the fact that you were able to find such a perfect candidate for us on short notice. We are totally thrilled with Helga and with White House Nannies! – (Permanent Client)
We had the pleasure of having Marina care for our children last Thursday and Friday through your agency. I was working from home on Thursday and was able to see/hear her with our children. I have never written about another caregiver, but I felt compelled to in this case. Marina was fabulous. Our children loved her and she was so excellent at the job with our toddler and infant. We will be requesting her in the future when we need care through the back-up program. — Liz (Temporary Client)
You found her right away and it is great! She is fantastic and very thoughtful. She is reliable, trustworthy and super conscientious about creating lists for us or cleaning up after herself and my son. She is totally proactive, even implemented a reward system which I love! My son loves her! Thank you for finding her for us! — Christina (Permanent Client)
Helen is wonderful with our daughter and we thoroughly enjoy working with her. She is knowledgeable, conscientious, makes helpful suggestions for our daughter’s growth and development, and takes care of her with great love and compassion — Denise (Permanent Client)
You guys have been great! It’s an incredible investment and we felt that you listen and help us. I appreciate everything you’ve done. Things have been going really well. She has an intuitive connection to kids and she takes great care of our daughter! We love her patience and her communication. — Permanent Client
Everything is going beautifully. The relationship is great! The mother is wonderful, they really make me feel appreciated. Everything is perfect with the children. – Nadi (Nanny)
“I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciated the great service I got from White House Nannies. You were so easy to deal with and Kristi was every mum’s dream when it came to her rapport with my children and efforts to care for them and entertain them through quite a long day. She was so impressive from the minute I opened the door and it meant I could go about the day’s business secure in the knowledge that my children were in good hands.” —Kirsten (Hotel Client)
“It was a terrific event, due in large part to the three nannies from White House Nannies! They were extremely friendly, confident, outgoing, flexible, and the kids had tons of fun. Thank you very much for securing such a wonderful team.” —Megan (Event Director)
“Your team was a complete pleasure to work with. Each nanny was on time, dependable, and caring. Thank you for making this experience a pleasure.” — Wendy (Client)
“For eight years, White House Nannies never failed to deliver on my caregiver wish list: energetic, patient, responsible, playful, kind, and an interest in child development, particularly autism spectrum disorders. ” — Nancy (Client)
“White House Nannies found us the perfect nanny five years ago who fit all our criteria. Our nanny is still working with us and has become an important part of our family. ” — Carrie (Client)
“We used your service this past Saturday, March 10. We had Maggie Murphy as a sitter. She was so wonderful with our boys, and so pleasant to deal with, that I really felt compelled to contact you and sing her praises. Thank you for finding Maggie for us. She was fantastic.” — Mark (Client)
“My search included word of mouth referrals, an online site, another agency. The quality of the White House Nannies candidates was noticeably better and the professionalism & organization of the team was far superior. I felt they listened, responded thoughtfully to my requirements but did not waste my time with mediocre candidates. You get what you pay for!” — Mary Beth (Client)
“Ella adored Lizzie and we felt immediately comfortable with her. She engaged Ella in play, and made sure she had an active and fun day!”— Melissa (Temporary Client)
“Melissa has been absolutely outstanding in every facet of her job. She is extremely capable, professional, responsible, hard-working, and efficient. We were especially impressed by her ability to juggle our kids’ overlapping schedules and keep everything running smoothly. More importantly, Melissa quickly established a rapport with each of our three children. They had a lot of fun, learned a number of new things, and even picked up some new good habits during their time with her. Melissa also proved adept at navigating their sibling rivalries and at preserving the (sometimes tenuous) peace among them.” — Ted (Temporary Client)
I just wanted to take a minute to let you know what a wonderful experience I had with your company this week. As a new customer I was so impressed with the quality of service I received. In less than 24 hours from the time of my first call I had a trustworthy, experienced nanny at my house to care for my son. Lizzie was very professional and Alex had a great time with her – I came home to a very happy baby. You and Lizzie saved the day and I can’t thank you enough!I look forward to working with you and White House Nannies in the future! — Lauren (Temporary Client)
“Hello my dear friends….so good to see the GREAT things going on with White House Nannies!

“Thank you for all that you do! I’ve been with my family for a year this month. I love my job more than ever and I couldn’t have found it without you!” — Erica (Nanny)
“Words cannot express our gratitude to White House Nannies for tirelessly (and graciously) fielding all our calls and emails during this very personal process. Mandy came into our home just a few short weeks ago, but she has already turned our lives around. She has given me the gift of peace of mind. I know the kids are not only safe and well cared for, but they are extremely happy. Just last night my oldest son told me that he thought it was time to start giving her hugs and kisses. If that’s not the stamp of approval, I am not sure what is. I was just telling my colleague about her and she said, “Wow – she sounds like Mary Poppins,” and I thought for a moment before responding, “Nope – she’s better!” Thanks so much!!!” — Connie (Client)
“Five years ago, as new parents, White House Nannies provided us with an amazing live-in nanny. She was experienced and thoughtful. She loved our children, cooked for them, and cared for them with grace and authority. We have busy lives, but she made us never worry about our childcare. She was kind, moral, and honest. My children are lovely little people who have benefited greatly from the time they have spent with her. We are so grateful.” — Jessica (Client)
