long does it take to get a nanny?
usually takes from 2-8 weeks from the time we receive your family
what if I need a nanny right away?
In many instances we can accomodate families quickly.
Rather than be rushed into selecting a nanny, The Nanny Agency,
Inc. is also happy to place one of our temporary nannies in your
home. Additional temp paperwork is required.
old are your nannies?
Our nannies range from 18 years and up. The nice thing about using
the Nanny Agency, Inc. to help you find your nanny is that we
do a custom job. In the family application, you tell us exactly
what you are looking for in a nanny, we match you with the nanny
candidates, and you select your nanny.
the nannies U.S. citizens and do they speak English?
All nannies that we use are U.S.
citizens or are legally able to work in the United States. All
of our nannies speak English.
many nannies do we get to interview?
As many as it takes. However, we have a philosophy at The Nanny
For the money you pay us to find your "perfect nanny",
we feel it's our job to send the best nanny candidates possible
and not waste your time parading people by you, just to put on
line up what we think are the best two or three candidates. If
it takes more, we're happy to accomodate you. After the interviews,
many parents call to say "it was a tough decision because
each of the candidates was highly qualified and we liked them
do we interview the nanny candidates?
Most parents interview at their home, but you can also pick a
place to meet, like your office or a Starbucks.
if I want to check out the nanny candidates myself?
You should, and we will provide you with the applicant's references,
along with her application.
about medical testing, HIV, drug, or TB tests?
We can arrange for your nanny to have medical testing
as a condition of her placement. We use Concentra medical centers
with many locations throughout the Metroplex. We will submit their
bill to you for payment.
we've selected our nanny, how do we make sure that everyone knows
what's expected of them?
We help you put together a written "work agreement"
which spells out the nanny's hours, salary, benefits, and
job duties. Once you agree to it, both you and the nanny sign
it, and each gets a copy.
guidance can you give to help me be a great employer?
At The Nanny Agency, Inc., we know the success of the placement
depends largely on the parent-nanny relationship. We urge you
to hold weekly meetings with your nanny to keep the lines of communication
open and discuss issues as they arise. Also, we are
always available to answer your questions and to make suggestions.
if I select a nanny and it doesn't work out?
The Nanny Agency, Inc. has an unconditional guarantee:
In the first 6 months, if the placement doesn't work out for any
reason, we will replace your nanny free of charge, no questions
asked. If a replacement is needed after the first 6 months, the
replacement fee is discounted 50%, as is explained in the family agreement.
happens when my nanny is sick or on vacation?
The Nanny Agency, Inc. will do its best to send you a temp,
and we will waive our normal sitting fee. You just pay the nanny.
