Nanny Parent Connection is a community of parents, care providers, and agencies working together to ensure excellent childcare for our little ones. We number over 20,000 members and are exclusively located in the Puget Sound region of Washington.

Every December, we ask the community to complete pay rate surveys so that we may provide a snapshot of the average childcare costs for different scenarios (i.e. one child, two children, nanny shares, sitter, part-time, etc.) as well as other information. You can find the results of our past surveys by clicking the below button.

Due to COVID-19, we have added several new questions/options to gauge the impact of the continuing pandemic on childcare costs in our region.

The 2021 Pay Rate Survey is now closed as of December 31, 2021. Thanks to the over 500 care providers, parents, and agency representatives that took a few minutes out of their busy days to take the survey!

Below, you will find an infographic of the pay survey results. If you have any questions about the results, feel free to email us here.
