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.

ARE THE NANNIES CONTRACT BASED?

All part-time and full-time Nanny placements are contracted based. After you pick the perfect Nanny for your family, Rochester Poppins will work with you to develope a work agreement between you and your Nanny. This contract will include everything you need to ensure a happy placement where both parties can feel safe knowing that they are on the same page.

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 well-being and development of the children in their care. A Nanny becomes a deeply connected part of the family and for most, being a Nanny is a professional calling.

Babysitters are usually only employed as needed, have less professional experience and education, and perform basic child-minding and entertainment. 

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. Rochester Poppins is happy to help navigate Nanny Tax and provide you with our trusted Payroll Company.
