What are the fees associated with using your agency?
Carolina Nannies and Sitters is privately owned and operated. Thus the fee structure is set and can be found by visiting the Fee's and Guarantee's page. Alternatively, you may contact the office via email or telephone to speak with someone for clarification.
What is your "Long Term Placement" guarantee?
Carolina Nannies and Sitters is pleased to offer a 90 days placement guarantee. If for any reason your current Nanny is not working out, we will find a replacement free of charge.
How does your agency screen nannies?
Only candidates who have childcare experience are allowed to register with our agency. We conduct a thorough one-on-one interview with all nannies and babysitters in our database. We verify all childcare and employment references. We conduct a background screening which includes a statewide criminal history check, department of motor vehicles record and national sex offender registry search. Some of our candidates are CPR and First Aid certified. If they are not, they must be willing to become certified prior to commencement of employment with a family, if requested.
What is the average wage of a nanny?
Salaries vary and are based on a number of factors. Factors to consider are the age and number of children requiring care, the nanny's years of experience and formal education, additional household duties required, number of hours required per week, and the type of hours required (e.g., traditional, overnight, evenings, weekends, etc). Contact your local Carolina Nannies and Sitters office to determine the wages applicable in your area.
What other benefits will I need to offer a nanny?
Benefits are not mandated by our agency or by law. Additional benefits to consider are health and dental insurance, use of a family car or transportation allowance, paid vacation, paid sick leave, 401K, the opportunity for paid-travel and expenses on family vacations, and a continuing education allowance for childcare related education. Families often pay for CPR and First Aid recertification.
Live-in nannies are also offered housing, to include a separate bedroom, separate bathroom, and use of the common spaces within the home. If the nanny is relocating to accept a position with your family, your family may want to consider paying for one-way airline, train or bus fare and other travel-related expenses.
To attract the best nannies, you should offer a comprehensive benefits package.
