4 Reasons Why You Should Use a Nanny Placement Agency
Choosing the right nanny for your family is a huge decision, and is not to be taken lightly. After all, you are trusting your nanny to care for your kids, sometimes even to live in your house.
Finding highly trained, quality nannies is not easy. A nanny placement agency can save you time and money by finding the right fit for your family. VIP Nannies is dedicated to getting the right fit the first time, so you don’t have to worry about interviewing dozens of nannies.
Here are 4 reasons why you should use a nanny placement agency:
#1 The perfect fit
Beyond the obvious qualifications, there are a lot of factors that go into finding the right nanny for your family.
You want someone with a similar discipline philosophy, someone with the flexibility to be available when you need them, and any other special considerations like working with newborns or children with special needs.
A nanny placement agency takes the time to get to know your family’s preferences and needs and matches you with the nanny that will fit perfectly with your family.
#2 Professional screening and reference checks
The scariest part of hiring a nanny is that you’re essentially hiring a stranger to care for your children when you’re not there. You want to make sure that whoever you are hiring is safe, aligns with your same values, and has the right kind of experience. In addition, you want to make sure that your nanny has a positive history and experiences with other families.
It can be costly and time-consuming, however, to do the kind of background and reference checks needed to ensure you’re hiring a nanny that is safe for your kids.
VIP Nanny only uses nannies that have gone through comprehensive background and reference checks, in addition to being Trustlined fingerprinted through the state of California. Using a placement agency will give you the peace of mind that your children are in safe hands.
#3 Employee payments and logistics
At the end of the day, the relationship between a nanny and a family is that of an employee and employer. If you’ve never been an employer before, figuring out how to set up payment processes and other logistics can eat up time you don’t have.
As an employer, you need to consider state labor laws, insurance, taxes, and more. Hiring through an agency, however, offloads that responsibility. A nanny placement agency can also help you navigate the employer/employee relationship.
#4 You want a professionally trained nanny
Nannies are a dime a dozen, but finding one who has the kind of training and education you want for your family isn’t easy.
If you want a nanny that doesn’t just serve as childcare, but also an enriching and positive influence on your children, then going with a placement agency is your best bet. Higher-quality nannies often rely on placement agencies to find work, and placement agencies work with only the highest quality nannies.
High-quality nannies prefer to work with agencies because they get placed in homes that are willing to compensate properly for their expertise, and they can focus on their job instead of trying to find clients by themselves. Agencies like VIP Nannies hire only the best nannies to serve their clients.
