Welcome to Starling! We are a stellar nanny placement agency proudly serving Greater Seattle and the Eastside. Starling nannies are passionate about education and child development! We represent professional nannies, private teachers, newborn care specialists, household managers, family assistants, personal assistants, and more.


We’re glad you asked! Starling began in a small classroom in Seattle. Each year a family of Starlings arrived to nest in a cozy nook outside our classroom window. The students observed the hatchlings with joy and curiosity. Like the students and hatchlings, the agency grew year by year. Starling is inspired by the wonderment that unfolds as we learn and grow together. Learn more about our origin and commitment to early learning!

As a boutique nanny agency, we curate the hiring process to meet your childcare goals. Starling’s caregiver network is mindfully selected and highly sought after. The secret recipe in our placement process is an intentional approach and exceptional candidates. The majority of our clients are recommended by friends and family, which is a testament to our successful nanny placements. 

In addition to introducing stellar candidates, Starling will seamlessly guide you through hiring and onboarding, as well as provide post-hire support. We aim to empower our clients with invaluable information during the nanny placement process and beyond.

As a proud member of the Association of Premier Nanny Agencies, Starling operates with professional ethics and integrity. We utilize proprietary resources, professional networks, and the expert screening methods of a private investigator. In addition, Starling aligns with state and federal household employment guidelines to ensure your family is making an informed hiring decision.

In other words, this is what we love and it shows!
