Much Does This Cost?
first question that many potential clients ask us is, "What
do you charge?" There are many things to take into consideration
when comparing fees of various agencies. Unlike many, our fee
structure is competitive locally as well as nationally. We will
charge you 10% of the nanny's first year's salary (12% for live-in),
which is payable at the time of hire. There is a minimum fee of
$1000.00 on any permanent referral, including perm/part time. Agency fees for a temporary
nanny/sitter are $20/sitting. The fee for unlimited use
in a month is $300/month. This fee is based on the cost of doing
business and the amount of time devoted to screening applicants.
We take the saftey and security of your family very seriously.
