Newborn Care Specialists (NCS) bring extensive knowledge of early development and are compassionate, open-minded, emotionally intelligent, and adaptable, with a desire to truly support, empower and strengthen attachment for you with your baby in these formative early months.
Fees for NCS and Night Nanny placement are calculated at 25% of the NCS’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. Our background checks are the most comprehensive available in our industry. We check to a federal level: identity research, multijurisdictional criminal records database, county-of-residence criminal research, country level criminal research, state level criminal record and sex offender research, federal district criminal research.
A la carte options are also available upon request such as: education verification, employment history, CPO’s (civil protective orders) international criminal checks, and 10-panel drug screening. Need a check that you don’t see listed? Just ask!
Due to NYC’s ‘Fair Chance Act’, we are no longer able to run or disclose any criminal background check information, including motor vehicle checks (in NYC) on any applicant prior to receipt of an accepted, conditional offer of employment.
Rates vary based on the specific postpartum care requested and the skill set of the provider. Typically we see NCS rates from $40-$50 per hour.
Most NCS 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 NCS 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 NCS empowers you, supporting your values and preferences, and aligning with your parenting style and philosophies to provide a secure, safe, and united home for your family.
