Dear Family,

Thank you for requesting information regarding your nanny search. We will be happy to assist you with this very important task. Your application will help us find suitable applicants for you to interview. Our fees for a permanent nanny, guarantee and policies are explained in the Family Agreement.

Please understand that many nanny candidates are incredibly gifted when working with children, but they may not shine if put through the same sort of interview given for a corporate job. They may not present themselves in a sophisticated manner, but their personalities are very well suited to spending long hours working with children. Keep in mind that you are also being interviewed and the nanny is evaluating whether or not your family is a good fit for her. Many nannies will be interviewing with several families as well as yours. You need to remember a nanny can be as particular as the family hiring one. Please allow 2-8 weeks to hire a permanent nanny or even longer.

Every nanny fills out an application, which will include work history and names/numbers of references. We conduct a personal interview and make copies of her driverís license, social security card, proof of current auto insurance and green card or work permit if she were not born in the U.S. We check her references, which are available for you to see as well as call. All of the nannies must be CPR certified. If they arenít when we meet them, we allow 30 days to get current certification after accepting a job. We will check her criminal history, driving records, the sex offender registry, as well as run a social security screen. When your nanny canít come to work for whatever reason, we will do our best to send you a temporary nanny and we will waive our normal temp fees. You just pay the nanny. As part of our service for our permanent families, when you need an occasional sitter, we will do our best to provide one and waive our normal temp fees.

I hope I can relieve some of the stress involved in this very personal important process. I have been placing nannies since 1997 throughout the DFW Metroplex, and I have a very good reputation. The agency is a member of the Better Business Bureau. We will do our best to send you qualified candidates so that you can choose wisely. If necessary, we can arrange for an interim nanny while you are looking for your permanent one. Also, keep us in mind for any of your babysitting needs, including overnights, as well as our wonderful temporary newborn specialists.

Please do not hesitate to call with any additional questions. We look forward to working with you.

Sincerely,
Andrea McDaniel
President
