Many families reaching out to Rainbow Nannies, after they’ve tried to find a Nanny themselves through personal referrals, Facebook groups, an online website; and yes, even on Craigslist.
Unfortunately, many result in less-than-ideal experiences.
Most of the time we hear that the Nanny they found on their own, changed her mind the day she was supposed to start; or that she requests a higher hourly rate immediately after her first week. It is also not uncommon, that a Nanny abruptly terminates the contract to move on to another nanny position; leaving the family at a complete loss.
Sounds familiar? Sadly, it has happened to many families.
While finding a Nanny on your own doesn’t require a financial investment per se, you don’t have the security that a Nanny Agency offers. Many families are so busy, that they don’t always have enough time for the interview phase, screening and vetting process.
Most parents are not aware how time-consuming a Nanny search actually is. A Nanny Agency invest a lot of time in finding the right long-term Nanny for your family; and to prevent any nanny turnovers as much as possible. You can oftentimes find us working after business hours and on weekends. We check so many things, which most families just don’t have the time and resources to do so.
Before we even connect a potential Nanny with you, we check each individual resume, their experience and expertise, do they fulfill your requirements, did they follow child appropriate classes and courses (yes, we are even known to call teachers to confirm!), the ability to make a long-term commitment, their interview etiquette, are they pleasant to communicate with, personality traits, professional references, the longevity of their previous nanny positions, their social media presence, do they follow-up and follow-through while communicating with us, etc.etc.
Did you know that we rule out 75% of all nannies that apply for a Nanny position with our Agency? Rest assured, that we do not connect you with just any Nanny!
