Does the agency keep part of my hourly earnings?

No, we do not.

How do I apply to nanny job openings?

Nanny positions are posted in our password-protected system for members. When you apply, we share your profile with the family and they determine which candidates to interview.

How do I get babysitting bookings?

We have a password-protected online booking system. As a sitter with our agency, you can see available bookings in the system and claim those that match your availability and your experience.

What if a client gets home late?

You are paid for total time worked. If a client is chronically late please let us know.

If you have a nanny contract you will be due overtime pay if your employer’s late arrival incurs overtime.

What if a client gets home early?

Your client will pay for the booking as scheduled in their original babysitting reservation.

For clients hiring a nanny, we require clients to provide guaranteed hours. This prevents pay fluctuation from week to week.

How do I get paid?

Clients pay you directly for hours worked. The agency does not distribute hourly pay. Please do not leave a booking without being paid (unless you feel you are in an unsafe situation). If you are sitting multiple days for a family you know and trust, you may consider being paid on the last day however it’s also fine to be paid daily.

Will I receive a W-2 or 1099 from the agency?

We cannot provide W-2s or 1099s because we do not distribute pay. Clients pay you directly. You may receive a W-2 from a family if they hire you as a nanny.


Complete our comprehensive online application, and we will carefully review your information and get in touch with you.
