Submit your Family Application. This document helps us narrow the field of applicants and gives us a better idea of your specific family needs.
$150.00 non-refundable Application Fee to begin your search.
For your convenience, we accept all major credit cards.
The Family Application is reviewed and we compile your family profile. We will call you to confirm we have received the information, and set up a time to come meet with you in your home.
The Family Visit
We like to learn about each of your family members! At this time, the Client Agreement is signed by the family as well as our Agency.
We will begin sending you carefully screened and qualified candidates to interview. You may decide to bring one or two of the candidates back on a "trial basis" for up to 2 days to see if they are a good fit for your family. (Families pay candidates their regular hourly rate, and our Agency fee will be waived for up to 2 days). Great nannies are hard to find! If you find a good fit for your family, don’t delay! Until a job offer has been extended and the candidate has accepted, the candidate will be available for placement with other families.
If you decide to hire one of our referred candidates, let us know and we can extend an offer of employment on your behalf, or you can make the offer directly to the candidate and inform us an offer has been made. Please remember all salaries should be discussed on a "gross" not "net" basis. (We can help you through the negotiation process if you would like). Both employer and employee are responsible for reporting taxes. For all payroll and accounting questions, we refer you to GTM Household Employment Experts, who specialize in household tax and payroll services. (http://www.gtm.com). At this time you should also fill in the Employment Agreement supplied to you by our office, which outlines job expectations, responsibilities, compensation, and terms of employment. If you don’t have a copy, please let us know and we can email or fax it to you. Once you have completed and signed the Employment Agreement, please forward a copy to Dallas Nannies.
The Background Check
The final stages of the independent background check are completed. Social security number is verified, previous reported addresses checked (for the last 5 years), county/state/federal criminal records are checked, past employment verification, and all personal references are checked. You may view a copy of the candidates file at any time.
The Referral Fee
Our fee for all permanent placements is based on a percentage of the nanny's gross annual compensation (and calculations are made based on 52 weeks in a year).
Our fee for temporary employees (less than 6 months employment) including newborn specialists and night nannies is:
1) $25 per day for day assignments
2) $50 per day for overnight assignments and 24 hour care
Our fee is due on or before candidate's first day of employment.
The Continued Support
We are dedicated to providing the highest level of service both during and after placement. Please let us know how we can assist you at any time.
We look forward to the opportunity to learn more about your family's needs and preferences.
