About Us

Our Story

Like you, I had a hard time finding high-quality childcare when my children were young. In fact, I became so frustrated by the process that I quit my job in 1985 to start White House Nannies. Thousands of successful placements later, I’ve learned that there’s no shortcut to finding great care, but there is an art to matching the right nanny with the right family.

Who We Are

What makes our team unique has a lot of do with how we view our mission. No one placement is like another. Each family is unique as are the nannies they interview. We really try to match both sides. We spend a lot of time listening in order to understand our clients’ needs and wants. We discuss their vision and then try and find the right nanny candidates. Just looking at a written application does not tell the story. The same is true of the paperwork from our nannies. We try to get beneath the surface in order to make the best match.

What People Are Saying

"As a first time mother living in downtown D.C., I was a bit overwhelmed at the prospect of trying to find the right child care for our new baby. I did not want to spend the precious time on my maternity leave running my own nanny search, but I knew I could only return to work if I found someone terrific - loving, experienced with infants, and professional - to care for him. When I engaged the help of WHN, I knew I had done the right thing."
