What does the Nannies on Call membership include?
Our by-appointment babysitting service is membership-based and gives families access to our pool of expertly pre-screened nannies for in-home babysitting appointments via a recurring subscription (monthly, 3-month, or annual). You can cancel your subscription at any time.*
*NOTE: We don't offer the possibility of paying agency fees on a per-appointment basis. If you need a nanny for a single babysitting appointment, you'll need to set up an account and subscribe to our service for one month. You can then unsubscribe to avoid future automatic membership renewal fees.
We recruit, pre-screen, interview, background check, reference check, train and provide ongoing support for Nannies for in-home babysitting appointments so parents don't have to.
- We go through HUNDREDS of resumes and applications to pre-screen potential nannies to see if they meet our minimum standards.
- We interview candidates to learn more about their interests, experience, and motivations for childcare.
- Our team of recruiters performs background checks and reference checks.
- We then train nannies so they meet our customer service standards every time they're in your home.
- And we provide ongoing feedback and support to help Nannies develop and grow in their nanny careers.
Of the hundreds of applications we receive, only a small handful make it through our entire recruitment process and onto our Babysitting platform.
What does this mean for parents? It means parents can have complete peace of mind when they book a nanny through our babysitting platform.
Who is it for? The service is perfect for families who only need occasional childcare, who book in advance, and who are generally comfortable working with a variety of nannies as opposed to a single, regular nanny. We don't offer emergency or last-minute babysitting.
You can book a Nanny to help care for your little ones during school professional development days, daycare closures, personal appointments, work events, and date nights.
See our COVID-19 Health & Safety policies.
Nanny availability varies depending on your location, date and time of your appointments, the ages of your children, and current demand. We cannot guarantee that you'll have a nanny every time you book.
