Frequently Asked Questions

Ask us anything about our DC Nanny Agency!How long does the entire process usually take?

Typically once you become registered, you can expect to receive profiles of the candidates selected for you within two to three days. The majority of families will have the nanny train for a day or two before the regular schedule commences, just to get the children familiar with someone new and to give her a strong idea of your family routine. Of course, each family’s situation is different. We will continually provide you with the assistance you need in order to find the candidate ideal for your situation.
