Many babysitting services charge their clients a substantial hourly rate and pay their nannies a low wage.

Our nannies are well compensated which enables us to attract the best and most qualified nannies.
Beware of limited background checks done by online nanny services, especially those that say they do it for a "minimal" fee. These checks are simply computer name search database checks and not as thorough as our check. Also no one ever meets these individuals and checks their ID. How do you know they are the person that is checked out? Also, their legal status is not checked and you could be hiring an illegal alien! If you choose to go this route, be thorough, ask questions and check ID!
As a parent we pose these questions for you when you are looking for somebody to trust caring for your children:
Do you feel comfortable with somebody caring for your children being paid $8-9/hr when the average rate a nanny charges is $12/hr and up?
This is what sitting services pay their nannies while charging you $15/hr plus transportation charges. We use only professional nannies. Most of your fee goes to the nanny to insure the very best nannies.
Do you feel comfortable with somebody caring for your children with a limited background check done?
Ask them to be specific on exactly what items they check. Do they check other states criminal records if the nanny lived there? We do! We also check drivers record, social security #, childcare references and personal references in writing, and have personal interviews with the nanny as well as insuring that they have CPR training
Some examples for Sitting Service:
Going to a hockey or football game
Evening out to dinner or some other special event
Going out of town on business
All nannies will care for your children at your hotel or home. With your permission, the nanny can take your children to the entertainment centers, the park, swimming pool or other places by car.
We use only nannies who have an extensive background with children.
All of our nannies have passed the following criteria:
All parents will have peace of mind knowing that we specialize in in-home childcare. Our reputation is based on this.
These nannies are available 24 hours a day / 7 days a week.
*Our Criminal SuperSearch is a nationwide search of criminal records, including the District of Columbia. Each Criminal SuperSearch report contains a wealth of information, including felony and misdemeanor records, sex-offender records, inmate records, and arrest information. With over 3,100 counties nationwide, there is not one database available containing all the criminal information. Based on the social security number validation/7-10 year address history, we will be able to detect counties of prior residence for your applicants. If any of these counties are not currently up-to-date in our Criminal SuperSearch, our system will notify you and we will send a court runner to the county to make sure all possible records are uncovered.
