Our Story

Established in 1994, A Better Way Nanny Referral was founded by a working Mom and former nanny wanting to alleviate parental concerns about their children's safety. With a deep understanding of the challenges faced by modern families, we strive to create a haven where worry is replaced with confidence. 

A Better Way Nanny Referral has brought together families with qualified, nurturing nannies who meet our high standards and resonate with each household's unique values for three decades.

We are passionate about supporting both families and nannies alike, and committed to creating harmonious relationships that prioritize the well-being and development of the children under the care of the nannies we support. At A Better Way, we are not just a service; we are a trusted partner on your parenting journey.

Meet Lynda

Founder and Executive Director

Hello, I'm Lynda Pitz, and this a little bit about me and my story in starting A Better Way Nanny Referral (ABW). As a parent, saying goodbye to my children when heading to work was always emotionally challenging. Fortunately, my background as a former nanny provided me with a trusted network of individuals who could care for them, granting me peace of mind and allowing me to focus on work without constant worry. This realization fueled my desire to offer the same assurance to other parents, leading to the creation of ABW.  ​For three decades, my passion has been ensuring the safety and well-being of children, and providing parents with the assurance that the right person is looking after their precious ones. I believe in more than just sending candidates; I believe in creating lasting relationships that prioritize the well-being and flourishing development of every child.  Year after year, witnessing the positive impact the agency has made on so many lives, gave me a desire to do more. In my personal life, I make an effort to help make a better world. This dedication extends to nurturing foster children, providing financial support to International Nanny Training Day, actively volunteering with Rotary and Immaculate Heart of Mary, teaching Yoga, and rescuing two dogs – a Pocket Bully and a Husky. Together, we can build a brighter future for children and families alike by supporting our communities.
