Nov. 12, 2008 - PRLog -- Omaha, Nebraska, a premier online nanny database has been named as a Finalist for the 5th Annual Stevie® Awards for Women in Business in the Women Helping Women category. Founded by Candi Wingate in 2005, matches families with nannies through a searchable online geographic database. With their unique system, both families and nannies can choose to match over 25 criteria, which runs the gamut from experience with multiples to availability for last minute assignments.

The Stevie Awards were created to honor and generate public recognition of the achievements and positive contributions of organizations and business people worldwide.  Beginning with The American Business Awards in 2002, The International Business Awards in 2003, The Stevie Awards for Women in Business in 2004, and the Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service in 2006, the mission is to raise the profile of exemplary organizations and individuals among the press, the business community, and the general public.  In short order the Stevie has become one of the world's most coveted awards.  

As one of 1500 submissions, stands out from the crowded landscape because it was created by a former nanny herself, Candi Wingate. Offering women a wealth of information on finding or being a nanny is available online at and its sister site, The online resource center covers such diverse topics from such subjects as how to do a background check and how much do I pay a nanny. provides service to women on both sides of the employment situation and is honored by the recognition of the Stevie ® judges.

“It’s always an honor to be recognized by your peers for doing a good job and I’m sure that my fellow finalists will agree, it is the love of our work that makes us get up in the morning.” states Candi Wingate, founder of “I feel so fortunate to be able to match great nannies with great families every day, because as I mom, I know first hand how important a nanny is to a family.” and has registered over 500,000 families and caregivers in their searchable database in the United States and Canada. They have worked with Dr. Phil, ABC’s SUPERNANNY and TLC’s John & Kate Plus 8 and has been a leader in childcare since 1987.  .

A childcare expert, Candi Wingate is the author of 100 Tips for Families and Nannies and knows both sides of the childcare story. Her first job was as a nanny to a family with newborn twins.
