Finding the best possible match for your family is our top priority!
Each step in the process is carefully and thoughtfully completed.
We are pleased to offer individualized and time efficient nanny placement services, by working with only a few clients at a time.
We first meet with you for a free initial consultation. This allows us to find out more about your unique family. The best part is, we come to you! We can meet at your work, home or other agreed location - which means less hassle for you. Seeing your family in a natural environment allows us to see your family dynamic and efficiently learn what would suit your family best.
After learning more about your family and your specific needs, we will create a job description. This includes the role of your employee - do you need childcare, household help, or a bit of both and a description of the job responsibilities. This detailed job description helps to attract the most suitable candidates.
We will recruit the best candidates for your family. After a preliminary in person interview by our agency, we will send you a carefully selected group of candidates that are a match to your position. We will further interview, reference check and begin to background screen the top candidates.
Once you decide on the best candidate, we will prepare and facilitate a formal job offer, and present it to the candidate. If the candidate accepts the job offer, we will prepare all necessary documents for the hiring process.
All along the way, we are here for you! You can call us with questions, concerns and get the support you need throughout the entire process. It doesn't end once you hire a great employee! We are available for on-going support and service. This may include providing advice or referrals to both your family and your nanny.
