What is the screening process for caregivers like?

All caregivers are required to have prior childcare experience and valid references, as well as a valid social security number and to be eligible to work in the US. After filling out the Candidate Application, they are contacted by a recruiter to go over their details and check their references. Lastly, an interview is conducted to verity their information once more, and learn about their work experience in further detail. Once a nanny is officially hired, a complete background check screening is performed prior to their start date.

How much do caregivers expect to be paid?

The hourly or weekly rate depends on different factors such as number of children, experience, if you need help with housekeeping or heavy cleaning, if there are any pets in the home that require assistance, and more.  A team member will be happy to guide you through current nanny salaries and expectations based on your living area.

Primarily nanny connections, but also word of mouth, social media, referrals from prior employers, recruiters.

Would I need to pay the placement fee if I wanted to do a trial day before hiring a nanny?

No, since trials are a great way to get to know the candidate better and figure out if it will be a good fit. We believe trials are part of the interview process and for this reason trail days are encouraged.

Am I expected to pay the nanny during the trial?

Yes, since nannies put in their effort and hours of work and should be compensated for such.

How long does it take to find a nanny?

It usually takes an average of 2 to 6 weeks.
