Temporary Nannies for Families in Portland

Portland, Oregon and surrounding neighborhoods

Hiring a Temporary Nanny 

Temporary nannies provide safety, entertainment and expert care for your children while you are away. They have a professional background working with young children. Like all our nannies, they are CPR and First Aid certified, and are individuals of high integrity and verified by passing background checks.

NWNannies will match you with a temporary placement for your family’s needs. This could be for a short time period over several months or a one-time event or occasion. While most jobs are booked in advance, we also provide emergency childcare that could be a same-day assignment for when circumstances change quickly. Nannies work in family homes, approved hotels, and event centers or venues. A Temp Nanny will work as few as four hours (minimum shift requirement), or as much as full-time for three months.
