A Newborn Care Provider (NCP) is much more than a babysitter or a housework solution. The NCS we represent are calm, compassionate, empathetic, open-minded, emotionally intelligent, supportive, and adaptable, with extensive knowledge of early development and a desire to truly be a supportive member of your growing household.
Fees for NCS and Night Nanny placement are calculated at 20% of the NCP’s gross earnings for the employment period covered.
All applicants are screened in an in-depth 3-part interview process, with 3 individual team members to gain a broad perspective of skills, professionalism, knowledge, communication, acceptance of feedback and the desired demeanor for childcare. We speak with and cross-reference, a minimum of 2 previous employers to assess past performance (Past performance is the best indicator of future performance), as well as a public social media review.
We know safety is your priority; It’s ours too. Background checks verify a candidate’s identity and social security. We check National & County criminal records (up to 3 counties in the last 7 years), motor vehicle histories, and nationwide sex offender registries.
A la carte options are also available upon request such as: education verification, employment history, international criminal checks, and 5/10-panel drug screening. Ask us if there’s a check you’d like performed that you don’t see listed.
Due to NYC’s ‘Fair Chance Act’, we are no longer able to run any criminal background checks on an applicant prior to receiving a conditional offer of employment. Therefore, we run our 3rd party background checks following receipt and acceptance of a ‘conditional’ offer letter of employment.
Rates vary based on the specific postpartum care requested and the skill set of the provider. Typically we see NCP rates from $35-$50 per hour.
Most NCP request a booking deposit or retainer for setting aside time to support your family. Typically we see minimum retainers equal to 4 weeks of pay, but often as high as 25% of the total contract.
While Night Nannies have ample newborn and infant experience, they are supporting a plan created by the parents. An NCP creates the plan and schedules for the family, often educates the parents, and has extensive newborn care training. they are experts in all things baby!
A great nanny acts as an extension of you in your absence, supporting your values and preferences, and aligning with your parenting style and philosophies to provide a secure, safe, and united home for your family.
