We send you the top qualified nanny candidates. After we find a few nannies we think you’ll personally love, we will email their profile created by the Pacific Elite Nannies team.
Suggested time frame for success: Review profiles and set up interviews within 24 hours. Offer trial days within 48 hours or less. Our nannies are actively looking for work and we would hate for you to lose out on one of our amazing candidates if they were to get offered a job elsewhere. We believe there is a right fit for every family, so we highly recommend you to spend some quality time interviewing each nanny.
Once you feel you have found your nanny and would like to schedule a trial date with one or a few, we will follow up with the both of you to discuss detailed information regarding the job. We will go through the hiring process with you
If all goes well on the paid trial day, we will go over job qualifications again, negotiate salary, create a work agreement, go over last-minute details and then offer the position to your nanny.
Once the nanny accepts the offer, we will perform the background check.
Your placement fee is due at this time. Your placement fee is 15% of the nanny’s annual salary.
If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact us and we will gladly do what we can to help. Whether it’s providing back-up childcare while your nanny is on vacation/sick or just to stay in touch, our job is to make things easier and less stressful for you. Don’t hesitate to contact us at any time.
Hiring the right nanny for your Los Angeles or OC family is one of the most important decisions you can make as a parent. We value your trust and take pride in our highly personalized nanny screening process.
Our team reviews each nanny’s online application, which contains a cover letter, resumé and profile photo. Then we rigorously screen potential candidates, ensuring each nanny you meet through our agency has undergone a thorough and extensive review.
In order to do our due diligence, nanny placements can take 4-8 weeks.
We promise, it’s well worth the wait.
