What Our Families Say About Us

We’ve worked with Marie in the past and when we heard that she had started her own nanny agency, we reached out to her to help us with our search for a new nanny. Marie is just so good at what she does - she took the time to understand what we were looking for, was in constant communication with me over text, helped set up interviews and working trials with candidates and followed up promptly any time I had any questions. We worked with three different agencies for this search and Hello Nanny consistently sent us the best candidates. The new website is great too - so easy to see all your potential candidates and all their documentation in one place.

I very strongly recommend reaching out to Hello Nanny if you need a nanny!

Marie is truly a gem. She works so hard to listen to your family’s needs and knows the nannies better than any recruiter I’ve come across (and I’ve tried a handful!). She cares deeply about both sides and it shows in her matching results. Marie has placed two nannies with our family whom we couldn’t imagine life without... More

I contacted Hello, Nanny! in a bind for care. Our family needs were unique as I work in the hospital late nights and, often times, very early mornings. We were essentially looking for a unicorn. Hello, Nanny was able to source two part time candidates that were a perfect fit for our family. I genuinely attribute such a great outcome to their attention to detail... More

I struggled to find reliable care for my son until I found Hello Nanny. I tried social media groups, mom groups, family referrals, but the care was unreliable. Hello Nanny placed a professional that knew exactly what my son needed without …More

We had the pleasure of working with Marie and Stephanie to find a professional and loving caregiver/family assistant for our busy family of four (and puppy!). We have worked with other agencies in the past and we found Hello, Nanny's process for on-boarding, clarity in pricing, qualification of candidates, timeliness of communication, and support in the hiring process to be superior to others. We could not be more pleased with our placement, and we would highly recommend this agency to others.

How to hire a nanny?

Hiring a nanny takes a lot of time and energy. Parents attempting the search on their own often end up with a door of unreliable and revolving candidates. However, the sure way to hire a nanny is through an experienced agency like Hello, Nanny!, where we interview hundreds and candidates monthly to continually add to our database of reliable pre-vetted career nannies that families can rely on in the long term. Because of our expertise in the field, we realize that each match is special and work to position nannies and families for success.

Where to hire a nanny?

There are many options for families to choose from when sourcing a caregiver for their child. Some choose corporate daycare, or in-home daycares, and others opt for an in-home nanny. Searches most commonly take place on the web. However, many online platforms allow anyone to build a caregiver profile with very little vetting or validity to profiles. The most secure place to search for a career nanny is through a nanny placement agency. Nanny agencies do extensive research, interviewing, vetting, background checks, and personality checks to ensure that families are speaking with reliable professional nannies, and eliminate the exhaustive process of sourcing hundreds of online profiles claiming to be a nanny.

How do you hire a nanny?

The process of hiring a nanny might take anything from 4 to 12 weeks. Identifying and screening applicants for interviews is the first stage. Run a background check, an MVR check, and check references on a potential nanny before meeting them. Extend the in-person interview when the background check is successful. A paid working trial should be scheduled if the interview goes well. The initial few candidates might not be a good fit, so this process could take weeks. Other characteristics including parenting style and attention to detail might not match.

How to hire a good nanny?

Perception is different for every person. Family needs vary vastly. Therefore, a good nanny for one family is not good for another. An experienced nanny however will have a work history with a family of at least 3 years or have worked in a formal daycare or school setting. They may also possess early childhood education or training. They are forward thinkers. They need very little guidance or hand holding. They have planned activities for children. Professional nannies who communicate effectively with the parents are reliable, punctual, and able to help the household run smoothly. Each family has unique needs, so it’s always important to define what a “good” nanny looks like to your family.

How much does it cost to hire a nanny?

The hourly cost of a career nanny varies depending on a few factors. The market rate for a professional nanny will vary depending on where your family lives. A role in one's rates is also how many kids you have. Career nannies base their rates on your position demands as well as their experience, education, location, and value.
