WHY USE AN AGENCY?

Finding a nanny, or finding a nanny job, can entail endless hours of searching, scrolling, and messaging. Rochester Poppins takes care of the upfront work and delivers serious candidates and positions only. There is security and safety in having an agency and a well-written Family Nanny Work Agreement on your side.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A NANNY AND A BABYSITTER?

A Nanny is a well-educated and experienced childcare professional. Nannies are invested in the long-term wellbeing and development of the children in their care. Babysitters are usually only employed as-needed, have less professional experience and education than a Nanny, and perform basic child-minding and entertainment. A Nanny becomes a deeply connected part of the family and for most, being a Nanny is a professional calling.

WHAT IS THE GOING RATE FOR A FULL-TIME NANNY?

At Rochester Poppins, we only match experienced and professional Nannies. As a Nanny position is a primary job, it is standard in the industry for them to be paid a living wage. Each Nanny’s professional rate is agreed upon with respect to their education, experience, and job description. We recommend employing Nannies for no less than $17/hour.

ARE THE NANNIES MATCHED BY ROCHESTER POPPINS EMPLOYED BY ROCHESTER POPPINS?

No. Rochester Poppins is the matchmaker. The nanny will be a household employee of the family.
