We connect with families right away! Unlike most other agencies, we do not require a time-consuming application form.

  • Personalized - One of the things that our clients say they appreciate most about us is that we utilize a truly customized approach for each family. We understand that each family is unique and are truly invested in what is best for YOUR family.
  • Premier Customer Service - We are open around the clock and are in constant communication with our families and nannies. We take the time to get to know you and your family’s needs and preferences so we can find the best match. We develop relationships with each nanny and each family in order to make matches that are ideal for both parties.
  • Timely & Efficient – We get started with your search right away. We always have a pool of qualified nannies actively searching with us so we can often start sending candidates to families within a week or two.
  • Educated Nannies – We ask all of our nannies to complete the Nanny Knowledge Course and INA Nanny Basic Skills Assessment before working with our families.
We pride ourselves on being efficient and timely while also only sending you highly qualified candidates. We strive to start sending our families qualified nannies within a week or two of beginning a search. If the position is more difficult to fill or a special case, we will be transparent about the timeframe before you register.
  • 24/7 Customer Service - We understand that finding a childcare provider is a critical decision. We are here to serve our clients and are available anytime to provide support throughout the process.
  • Write Employment Agreements - Many of our families request that we draft the employment agreements for them, and we are happy to do so. We understand that this can be daunting, especially if you are hiring your first nanny. We just collect the necessary details from our clients in a short phone call or email and then draft it up for their review. Other families prefer to write their own so in this case we provide a customizable agreement for their use.

  • Nanny Payroll & Tax Consultation – We partner with GTM Payroll Services, which provides a complimentary consultation to each of our clients about nanny payroll and taxes. Learn more about GTM.

Many factors determine a nanny’s salary: education, experience, number of children, additional responsibilities, and special situations. On average, most professional nannies in Massachusetts and Connecticut earn between $20-30. In Florida, nannies earn between $15-25 per hour.

We believe that nannies are professionals and most families decide to offer their nannies some standard benefits such as two weeks paid vacation, Federal holidays, and a few sick days. Some families also decide to offer additional benefits such as transportation reimbursements and health care stipends.

There’s a $250 registration fee to get your search started and to send you nannies. We do all the recruiting, interviewing, reference calls and put together a portfolio for each nanny. We also can provide you with other resources such as interview questions to ask the nannies and support you throughout the process. If you choose to hire one of the nannies that we send you, we run a professional background check and driver’s license check. We also help you write the employment agreement and the negotiation with the nanny you select. If you hire one of our nannies, there’s a one-time placement fee based on a percentage of the nanny’s compensation. Contact us for an estimate.
We conduct a comprehensive background check which includes a County Criminal Court Search, Motor Vehicle Records Search, Nationwide Criminal Databases Search, Sex Offender Registry Search, Social Security Number Trace, and CORI checks in Massachusetts.
