How Much Does This Cost?

The 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.

What can you expect to pay a nanny? In the DFW metroplex, nannies' salaries range from $500-$800 per week for live out ($12-15/hour). Live-in salaries range from $450-$550 per week. Full time nannies usually work 40-50 hours per week. An agreed upon hourly rate is paid for overtime. For temporary/babysitting placements, nannies get paid $12-15/hour, with a 4 hour minimum. For overnights, the nannies earn a minimum of $125/night. For 24 hour periods, nannies will charge a minimum of $200. We also provide newborn care specialists. Their rates very upon a family's needs. We also place permanent part-time nannies as well as on-call babysitting nannies.

If a replacement nanny becomes necessary within the first 6 months, we will assist you in locating another nanny at no additional fee. After the free replacement period, we offer a 50% discount until the end of the first year. The careful matching of a nanny’s skills, experience and personality to your expectations is the area where we excel. We don’t want to waste your time. Good communication between you and your consultant is essential. Your consultant will follow up with you frequently during your search.
