Step 1. Parent Application:
You will need to fill out a Parent Application. Please be as detailed as possible, as we want to have a very clear idea of what you are looking for in a childcare provider. This helps us establish what your needs are to ensure we can provide what you are looking for in a nanny. We also encourage you to come in to our offices for a personal conversation detailing your childcare needs. We strive to develop and maintain a strong relationship with your family. Upon receipt of application, we require a non- refundable $225 application fee to begin to search for your nanny. This fee covers the costs of background checks and other processing and also entitles you to a complimentary one year of membership for our Temporary Referral Services. Please allow approximately 6-8 weeks for placement, in order to ensure a thorough process.
Step 3. Needs Assessment with Placement Counselor:
After a detailed conversation with a placement counselor, we match nannies
to your specific requirements and schedule them for interviews accordingly.
All nannies must meet the following minimum requirements:
Personal interviews are conducted with all nanny candidates by a Metropolitan Nannies Placement Counselor to get to know the nanny better and ask more questions about their experience.
Metropolitan Nannies will provide the nanny profiles we feel will be a great match for your family. This profile includes detailed information we gathered during our reference checks. However, we always encourage families to check the references themselves. Often the deciding factor between two great candidates may be a particularly strong recommendation from a previous employer. We can assist in scheduling interviews for you and the nanny. Please call us after each interview to give us your feedback. If you are interested in hiring one of the candidates with whom you met, it may be wise to let them know, or have us inform them of your interest, as they can choose whether or not to go on other job interviews. Until a job offer has been extended, candidates are available for interviews and placement with other families.
Step 5. Make an Offer:
Once you have decided to make an offer and your nanny accepts, we have you complete a Letter of Intent to Hire. Once that is received by Metropolitan Nannies, the final extensive background checks are performed. Criminal background checks take between 24-48 hours (out of state may be a little longer). A copy of the completed background checks and any other important information can be provided to you upon request.

Step 6. Nanny/Family Agreement:
This is imperative to a successful placement. This outlines the job responsibilities, wages, benefits, and hours. Please complete and after both parties have signed the agreement, send or fax a copy to Metropolitan Nannies.
Step 7. Deliver Fee & Contract to Metropolitan Nannies:
At this point, the Nanny Placement fee is due to Metropolitan Nannies. We must have received payment at least 5 business days before your nanny will begin work.
