Temporary Placements

NWNannies has been meeting the temporary childcare needs of the Portland metro area for 31 years. Our thousands of satisfied families are a great source of pride to us.

  • Loving and compassionate and “there” for your family
  • Expected to provide enriching experiences for children
  • Proven to have positive experiences with young children, verified by checked references
  • An individual of high integrity, verified by checked references
  • Trained in CPR and First Aid and always prepared for the unexpected
