“Near the forfront of the next generation of parenting tools...Red Tricycle is not your mother's parenting aide. Readers are razr-phone-toting, book-club-joining moms who at least know what a blackberry is."

Seattle Post Intelligencer April 2006

Un-Canny Nanny Care

Looking for a nanny? Worried that you won't be able to find a quality care provider that's right for your family? The good news for many Seattle-area families is that there's a solution. Nanny Pros Inc., a unique nanny recruiting and consulting agency, helps both families and nannies meet their respective match.

The four-year-old company was started by Kirkland mom Carrie Morris, who decided to create a more cost-effective solution for families wanting (and needing) a professional nanny recruiting service. Morris quit her executive-level job and soon after, Nanny Pros Inc. was born. Service is the key differentiator at Nanny Pros Inc. They understand how important it is to start a relationship off on the right foot. Morris and her team guide parents - many of whom are "first-timers"- through the entire employment process, from the interview to the signed contract to the first 90 days of employment. NPI charges a flat rate for placement (including prescreens, reference/background checks and interviews).

They also help negotiate offers, draft employment contracts and advise families on payroll taxes. Nanny Pros Inc. also offers coaching and training services, as well as ongoing support and advocacy for the nanny community. Morris believes that the true measure of their success is creating a match in which both the family and the nanny are happy. "We want the nanny-family connection to be a healthy, long-lasting relationship for everyone involved."
