I'm Madison Stoneman and I am the owner of Westside Nanny. I am a former career nanny and educator, fifth-generation Seattleite, and proud mama of three beautiful kiddos of my own. After earning my degree in Early Childhood & Family Studies from UW in 2010, I founded WSN because I saw a need for nanny placement services that not only produced great results, but that also offered a more personal, service-oriented approach for families and nannies alike. I knew that nannies would benefit from greater advocacy and support, and parents would benefit from a more streamlined and accessible candidate search process. I love bringing people together, and I believe that thoughtful matchmaking with true compatibility in mind is the key to a successful placement. From these values, Westside Nanny was born and it's been my third "baby" ever since! Westside Nanny is a one-woman operation, and because of this I am able to personally invest my time and energy into each placement, getting to know a family's needs and interviewing every candidate myself. 
Bringing a new caregiver into a family is a big deal; nannies are so much more than 'just a babysitter' and are truly an extension of a family circle! I approach every new assignment with a nanny's mindset and a mama's heart; as a mom, I know how scary it can be to think about leaving your children with someone new; as a former nanny, I understand how important it is for caregivers to have ownership of their position and feel valued in their role. For me, there are few things sweeter than the thrill of helping a deserving nanny find and thrive in her dream job, or hearing I've put parents' minds at ease knowing they've found a fantastic caregiver they feel great about.
The trust that nannies and families place in me every day is a responsibility I do not take lightly. I am so very grateful for every single family and nanny who has chosen to work with me and I strive to provide an exceptional experience in return! My goal is always for my clients to feel confident about their choices in childcare, to feel supported in their decision making, and to trust my recommendations as they would those from a dear friend.
I welcome any opportunity to discuss your needs or answer your questions about Westside Nanny. Thank you for your support of a local small business!
With gratitude,
Madison Stoneman
