A Brilliant Nanny

WE ARE CLOSELY MONITORING THE IMPACT THIS PANDEMIC IS HAVING ON OUR INDUSTRY AND ARE HERE TO SUPPORT FAMILIES DURING THE COVID-19 CRISIS.

Nannies, you are eligible for a Covid vaccine as part of Phase 1b in the state of Oregon! In order to schedule your first dose, go to www.covidvaccine.oregon.gov and click on the Let’s Get Started box. Please keep this agency apprised of your vaccination status. 

PLEASE NOTE NEW COVID PROTOCOLS FOR TEMP BOOKINGS:

If anyone in the home is experiencing symptoms of Covid, flu or other illness beyond a common cough or cold, this booking must be cancelled. 

Each person in the household must have a temperature check and thorough hand washing prior to the nanny’s arrival (THE NANNY WILL DO THE SAME).

Please have hand sanitizer available next to the front door and on the kitchen counter for the nanny’s use upon arrival.

The nanny will wear a mask during their shift and we request that all adults and children over the age of 6 wear a mask as well.

A Brilliant Nanny is focused on providing families in the Portland metro and neighboring suburbs with remarkable childcare. Our clients are working professionals and busy homemakers who value personalized attention for themselves and their children.

We represent only the most professional, experienced, and compassionate nannies. We acquire a deep understanding of their strengths, their work styles and their personalities.

We offer permanent, temporary and summer placement.
