After your placement, we offer continued support if you ever have issues or concerns about your employment.

WILL THE FAMILY I WORK FOR TAKE TAXES OUT OF MY PAYCHECK?

WHAT IS YOUR PLACEMENT PROCESS?
The first step is filling out our Nanny application. After review and acceptance, we will contact you to schedule an interview. Upon completion of the in-person interview, we will call the references you included on your application. We will then use your experience, qualifications, and skill set as well as your personality and interests to match you with families we think you would work well with. From there, we help to coordinate interviews with families in their home. We follow up after each interview to see how it went and to discuss any concerns you may have. We help negotiate a verbal offer including salary, schedule and start date. Pending the completion of your references and background checks, we will provide a detailed Nanny Employment Agreement for you to fill out with the family. Once the placement is finalized, we will be available throughout the term of your placement should any questions or concerns arise.
