What areas do you service?
How long does it take to find a qualified full time or part time candidate?
On average, the overall process takes about 1-3 weeks to place a qualified candidate. Once the chosen pre-screened applicants have been carefully selected for you we will send your their detailed Profile Reports and arrange all interviews for you. We view our success on the quality of our candidates we represent rather than the quantity. We are committed to carefully matching candidates with our clients to form an outstanding working relationship and always offer on going support when needed. We will continue to work with you until a successful match is made.
What is the salary range I can expect to pay?
Salaries range in pay based on the candidates experience, education, job responsibilities and geographical location. Factors that affect the nanny’s salary include education and experience, hours needed and the duties required. The pay does not reflect a “per child” fee like most daycare settings require.
How do you screen potential candidates?
Nanny Connections screens potential candidates that have previous experience in their field with excellent references that we personally verify. We screen individuals who are personally referred to our organization and we also recruit candidates who have the experience and characteristics our clients are looking for. Each prospective applicant is carefully evaluated on their communication skills, professionalism, character, and conduct. Every candidate referred through our organization is screened the following ways prior to placement:
- Preliminary Phone Screening
- Detailed Application Procedure
- Written Evaluations
- Reference Verifications
- Social Security Trace
- Criminal Background Investigation verified through Federal, State, County, or City Criminal indexes. Reports will cover felony and misdemeanor arrests and conviction histories.
- Motor Vehicle Investigation
- Profile Reports Created For Your Review
We encourage you to read though our list of client success stories.

What is a work agreement?
A work agreement is a contract signed by the family and the employee that states the job duties that are expected and covers important issues such as; salary, pay day, job responsibilities and important household information. A work agreement is beneficial for the family as well as the employee because it states in writing what is expected and it helps to create an open work environment. We provide our clients with a detailed Nanny and Family Agreement Form. This is a wonderful communication tool that eliminates confusion and defines the complete job description and sets expectations in the beginning.

This means that if for any reason within the first 6 months the placement does not work out we will undertake the responsibility of locating and referring one new candidate for employment free of charge. We also offer Extended Guarantee Packages. Please call or email us for a detailed description on our different packages available.
