There are nanny agencies that serve as centers for supplying nannies or babysitters for the children of working parents. They have a commendable resource of full time, part time and in-house placements for nannies and these agencies safeguard the interests of the nanny as well as those of the family and help them operate very congenially.
In order to ensure a superior quality of service to the customers and to stay in the highly competitive market the agencies first select aspiring nannies through an interview. The prospective candidates then have to pass through a rigorous check of their background as well as potential for proper childcare. They have to fulfill all the prerequisites for baby-sitting and also have to undergo some physical tests. After this selection process these agencies draw a very exhaustive database of the nannies and supply candidates to families who contact them for professional caregivers. These agencies also have “Terms of Employment” that are abided by the nannies as well as the employing family and in this way they ensure a good understanding between the functioning nanny and the kids’ families.
The agencies can provide the suitable nanny to any family keeping in mind their requisites such as the age, education, culture or talents of the prospective caregiver. They also provide the families with all the credentials testifying the nanny’s potential and other backgrounds. On the other hand nannies also have the chance to get placed in a family that suits them the most. The expertise of these agencies lies in their ability to identify the requirements of the families and supply the most suitable nanny for their kids.
By virtue of an agency the nanny’s interests are also preserved. A nanny is assured of a good home to work in, along with a standard and regular remuneration. The mutual agreements being drawn by legal aid nannies find it always safe to be placed through an agency than by the help of any personal initiative that can lead to many future disputes. Some agencies also help the nannies with services from personal career counselors and placement specialists.
Many of these services come free for the nannies. Nannies are classified according to their age, experience and training in diverse caring activities. Different agencies have varied criteria for this compartmentalization, yet there are some common categories, namely, “Nannies Plus” in which the nannies are paid between $300 and $700 a week; “Nannies Elite” in which the nannies receive a remuneration ranging from $450 to $800 or more each week; and “Nannies Platinum” that sees the nannies getting $600 to $1000 per week as salaries.
