Ultimately, it is about making the best match for both parties. A nanny could be absolutely wonderful on paper with years of experience and child development training, but if their childcare philosophy, personality, or work style does not mesh with the parents’, it will not work. At Premier Nanny Agency, unlike some larger agencies that have a family liaison and a nanny recruiter, we ensure that the same person gets to know each nanny and family. Often the first nanny candidate that we send to a family ends up being the one they hire, sometimes without even interviewing other candidates. Most parents, especially parents hiring their first nanny, do not have experience talking with nannies and will be entering a whole new industry. It can be overwhelming and may be difficult to know where to start and how to select the best nanny for your family.
There are so many facets to consider when hiring a nanny. Not only will the caregiver have to fit well with your family dynamics, they should also have strong experience and training in caring for children. It is also essential that they have excellent references and a clean background check and driving record. Utilizing an agency can save a family many hours and a lot of stress. Agencies will have highly qualified, vetted candidates ready to meet with potential families.
Many families decide to use a nanny agency to find the best nanny for their family. This nanny will be caring for your most prized possessions, so many families decide to hire a professional to do the job.
