Our candidates are evaluated on their skills, experience and reliability, as well as how well they'll fit within your specific family.
There is nothing more important than finding the ideal caregiver for your family. We understand - this is a big step. Finding someone you can trust means more than adding a resource for your family - it means peace of mind, and quality of life. Our experienced team will take the time to really understand your needs and preferences, and guide you through a proven process that has provided hundreds of families in the Seattle and Eastside areas with valued resources.
Our clients often tell us that this is one of the key differences they have noted when working with A Nanny for U - the fact that our consultants have all been nannies, teachers or caregivers with real-world experience. This expertise is invaluable, and is evident in everything we do.
Thorough. Professional. Ethical. More than just words, these are the standards upon which we base our entire interview and placement process.
From the very beginning our consultation process is educational, informational, and entirely supportive. Our placement experts know that understanding your needs is only part of our challenge - we'll place equal emphasis on answering your questions, providing you with current market information and teaching you how to attract the top candidates. We work with you to put together a detailed picture of your family's situation and expectations. Next, we begin our search. During a concentrated interview period, potential candidates are evaluated on their skills, experience, reliability, and presentation, as well as other criteria that match your specific needs. Our trusted background checks include:
The final steps: Once the top candidates are selected, we'll make every effort to keep the process easy and stress-free. We'll schedule interviews with qualified nannies who will come to your home to meet your family. After the interview, we'll follow up with you to discuss the candidate's strengths and weaknesses. We'll then negotiate the contract on your behalf, and help determine the final details before work begins.
A Nanny for U will then provide ongoing support for you and your nanny, including nanny communication coaching. Our goal is your long-term satisfaction far beyond the initial nanny placement, and one of the many reasons families come back to us for additional resources as their needs change throughout the years.
