What is our process in retaining a family + starting the search?

STEP ONE

First, fill out an online application.  We want to get to know your family and get a better understanding of your specific needs.

STEP TWO

Next, we’ll review your application and email to let you know we’re working hard to find the right fit. We’ll schedule a 30-minute Zoom meeting or phone call to get to know you a little better.

STEP THREE

After our initial meeting, we’ll follow up with you to see if we could answer any lingering questions that you may have.

STEP FOUR

At this point, we are hoping that you are confident in our ability to find you the best fit.  A $150 retainer fee is required to officially start the process.

STEP FIVE

A Welcome Packet is on it’s way to you via email.   When it arrives, take some time to look it over. We want to hear from you if you have any questions!

STEP SIX

The next step is to schedule a family interview  in order to get to know you and your family more extensively. This is an in-person interview where we really dive into your family dynamics such as:   careers, family schedules, neighborhood (walkability,  parks etc.)  family personalities, what your little ones might want in their nanny etc.

Make sure to check your email because you’ll be getting updates and nanny profiles from us via email.

It’s time to meet potential candidates! We have utilized the criteria of your family and matched some awesome nannies that we would love for you to interview.  (Also, if you see a nanny profile that we have sent you, you can request an interview with them at any time).

Let’s recap. We’ve gone from being strangers to meeting over the phone, to visiting you in your home. We’ve worked together to figure out your needs and how The Nanny Co. can assist you. We’ve found quality candidates, verified experience, completed background checks, spoken to past families and feel we have a perfect match. At this point you have extended an offer to your perfect fit! Now, we discuss placement fee and payment options.

STEP ELEVEN

Time to check your email! We’ve got some helpful tips to share with you in our placement packet. This is also time to schedule a meeting with Homework Solutions and have all of your nanny tax-related questions answered.

STEP TWELVE

Check-in time! Naturally, there’s a little adjustment period involved when someone new joins the family. We want to give you and your new nanny some time to get to know each other. That doesn’t mean we disappear, though. We send a follow up email at your 30 day mark . You can always contact us before this.  Email or give us a call, we want to hear from you.

Nitty-Gritty Details

Here are some frequently asked questions.

What if the selected nanny doesn’t fit with what I need?

Our plan includes interviews with up to three qualified candidates.  The retainer fee covers the time and expenses to locate and screen local nannies.  If after three of our provided candidates do not meet your needs, please let us know.  We will meet with you to discuss how to find candidates more suitable for  your family.
