Childcare is full of questions…

Thankfully, we have some of the answers.

We’ve been right where you are. We don’t just talk the talk, we’ve walked the walk with every member of our team having at one time or another, been a nanny searching for a great family. Our matchmaking works because we consider the needs of all parties involved. We want to get to know you, to understand what makes you tick, and what keeps you motivated, and feeling valued. Only then can we begin to understand with which family and position you’ll thrive.

Our nannies must adhere not only to our standards but also to the recommended practices set by the International Nanny Association (INA), the umbrella organization of the in-home childcare industry.

Our client families are predominantly based in NYC and the surrounding Tri-State areas.

Unfortunately not. We recruit locally experienced candidates for our locally based client families for all of our opportunities including live-in positions. Please be currently residing in NY or the Tri-State area to apply.

Rates vary greatly based on experience, education, skills, languages, and responsibilities. Currently, we see gross hourly rates between $30–$35+. General benefits for full-time Nannies often include 2 weeks of paid vacation, a monthly MetroCard, personal & sick days and most paid Federal holidays. Additional benefits often include overnight stipends and contributions towards health care, commuter costs, and cell phone use. Some families also offer full Health Care and retirement plans!

There are many reasons why we’re unable to proceed with an application. A variety of factors are considered such as a candidate’s location, availability, prior experience, longevity, reference quality, and compensation hopes. Professionalism is assessed throughout our process and we reserve the right to discontinue representation at any time throughout the application process and beyond. Only a small percentage of applicants are accepted into our network for these and other reasons. We do not share references with you or disclose any information provided by your former employees with you.

While this is great experience, we seek career-minded nannies with a desire to work in the field long-term and who have previously provided a full spectrum of private in-home care with a minimum of 5 years of experience. Applicants must have references that speak to a broad knowledge of child development and experience with related tasks such as children’s housekeeping, meal preparation, and laundry.

Our vetting process requires speaking with a minimum of two prior employers in recent childcare positions. Supporting letters of recommendation are wonderful and we encourage you to include them in your profile.

We strongly advocate for legal pay for all nanny professionals. Our client families agree to adhere to all state & local tax and labor laws. To learn why legal pay matters and the benefits it provides you, click here.
