You will never be pressured into taking a job you do not feel is right for you. We value Nanny Industry Standards for treatment and compensation. Finding families who know the value and worth of an incredible Nanny for their child’s future, and are willing to pay for quality is our priority.
With us, all families are required to sign a Family/Nanny Work Agreement. This provides security for your income and position, and ensures everyone is on the same page.

We do not take a cut of your pay, ever!
