Less than 8% of the candidates make it through our 13 point screening. We have a reputation of being ‘strict and selective’ and as Moms ourselves we are completely content with that. We have high expectations and standards and we hold our candidates accountable. You will only see the best of the best. Each candidate has a detailed personal interview with our Placement Counselor and team. Detailed reference checks are completed with all relevant past positions. Our background checks are the most thorough in the industry and include Social Security Trace, National and County Criminal background checks, Sex offender checks, Motor vehicle reports, and random drug testing. Additional criminal checks are available on an a-la carte basis. We assess personalities to ensure that your candidate has the qualities you’re looking for.
We host appreciation parties, charity involvement and networking events so nannies can be encouraged in their professions. We offer and encourage ongoing training to enhance your staff’s skills-sets. We are sponsors annually for International Nanny Training Day and Newborn Care Specialist Foundational Training.
We are the only Arizona Agency that can proudly say we have been a member of the elite APNA, the Association of Premier Nanny Agencies for 20 years now. We had to open up our policies, contracts, policies and operating procedures to scrutiny to be sure we were abiding by the stringent APNA Code of Ethics and have upheld that standard for decades. Our 40+ years in the business have made us veterans in the industry. We’re the only Arizona Nanny Service that holds a membership with DEMA, The Domestic Estate Managers Association. We are also proud members of The International Nanny Association (INA). We attend national conventions to continue to keep up with the industry and to strive to always grow and learn how to better serve our families and nannies.
