nanny recruitment process
Here's how the process works, step-by-step. Please read the below and feel free to email us with any questions.
When you first call we'll ask you several questions to help us better understand your needs.You can answer many of these same questions on our online questionnaire.
The majority of our experienced caregivers are looking for:
reimbursement of $18-$20 per hour hour (varies with duties, number of children & nanny's skill and experience) (click here for more on how much to pay a nanny)
overtime paid past standard workweek, weekends and public holidays
10 paid time off (PTO) days annually plus major public holidays
Once you're ready to proceed, we'll ask you to sign and email back our Client-Agency Agreement form.
Shortly after that, we'll send you a tailored Job Description and several brief Caregiver Profiles on candidates we've selected for you. Every nanny will be compassionate, qualified and ready to work at reasonable rates.
After reviewing the profiles, we'll help you arrange interviews with the most promising candidates. We'll set times that work for your schedule, possibly scheduling multiple interviews in one day if convenient.
SCREENING & BACKGROUND CHECKS
We screen, interview and begin reference checks on candidates early on. However, once you have selected a final candidate we may need five business days to finalize their professional reference and criminal background checks.
THE FAMILY-CAREGIVER AGREEMENT
Now that the interviews are behind you and you've found the perfect nanny, the next, and very important, step is to iron out a work agreement that works for you and your new caregiver.
This document includes specifics on your nanny's duties, her salary, work hours, paid time off (PTO) days, and more.
The more clearly defined this agreement is the fewer misunderstandings are likely to happen down the road.
Don't worry, we'll discuss each aspect of this document with you when the time comes. Moreover, you and your nanny can always revise the agreement.
AFTER "DAY ONE"
Once your nanny has begun working in your home, we'll check in periodically with her and with you to make sure everything's going well. We are in a perfect position to help solve any misunderstandings that may pop up early on, so please call when you need us.
