Over the past several years, we have asked our members to complete pay rate surveys to provide the parents, care providers, and agencies of our region a snapshot of the average pay for different child care scenarios (i.e. one child, two children, nanny shares, sitter, part-time, etc).

You can find the results of those surveys by clicking here.

We wanted to take this opportunity to update the pay rate information for nanny share child care arrangements as it has been over a year since we last surveyed our community.

Trends and Analysis

If you have an active Family/Parent, Care Provider, or Agency membership and like to analyze numbers like we do, we are now offering additional information on trends and information derived from the survey results. We are also breaking down specific information and trends for YOUR area of the Puget Sound region!

  • As we have seen in previous pay surveys, there is a major difference in pay rates depending on what area you live or provide child care. Below, we have broken down the average hourly rate paid per family in the City of Seattle, North King County, South King County and East King County based on the survey responses:

There are many child care background check options available to you. This is what separates us from the rest. Learn more by clicking here!

No Hidden Fees

Look closely at some of our competitors’ packages. They charge you a package fee (just like we do) but then hit you with court access and DMV fees. We don’t do that. Unless your background check includes New York courts, the price you see is the price you pay. 

More Records

While others make a big deal that they search 100, 200, or even 300 million records, through our partnership with EBI Inc., we can search nearly ONE BILLION records for you. This allows for a more complete search and peace of mind for you and your family.

Dedicated Support

EBI’s Candidate Care Team is standing by 24/7 to support your care provider candidate. If your candidate needs help during the screening process they can connect with the support team via telephone, live chat, or email.
