Frequently Asked Questions From Florida Nannies

Ready to start but still have some questions? We are here to answer them! Below are some FAQs that we hear pretty regularly, but if you have more, do not hesitate to reach out!

Why should I allow ABC Nanny Source to find me a nanny and not another agency?

We’re so glad you asked. We know that this process can be hard to start and we are eager to help you along the journey. We have worked incredibly hard on a reputation that is prestigious and well known, based on our impeccable customer service and the nannies that we represent. We want you to feel confident that your nanny is dependable, trustworthy, and someone who will be with you for a significant period of time. Our nannies also trust that they are going to be generously compensated and will be working with families that are understandable, gracious, and a joy to work for. We know that our nannies are qualified and valuable nannies with so much to offer and we are eager and ready to find them the perfect family to work for!

How long does it take to find me a nanny?

We tend to move very quickly at ABC Nanny Source, and we strive to give you notifications about particular openings in your area within a week of your electronic profile being completed. The requirements of drug testing, CPR Certification, and references are all your responsibility, so we are only able to provide you with opportunities once those items are complete. Once completed, your electronic profile will be visible for families in your local vicinity to see. That vicinity is within a 30-mile radius of your home. The families are presented with multiple options and they have the final say as to who will be the best fit for their family, but you will always know when you are being considered for a position. All information about the employment opportunity will be presented to you prior to acceptance and if the family does not present it to you, your placement counselor will. This allows you to know if this position is something that you would be interested in. We do this so both you and the family are fully aware of the expectations of the job and we do not want anything to come out later in the process that anyone is uncomfortable with. We will have in-depth conversations about your prior experience, attributes, and qualifications so that we know what kind of families you’d be a good fit for. When a good fit arrives for you, your placement counselor will send your profile to that family to see and will pursue an offer of employment specifically for you. Once the offer of employment, signed by the parents is presented to you, you will be able to see all of the requirements of the position, as well as salary, vacation and sick time, holidays off, start date, and the anticipated schedule.

How do I apply for a nanny job in Florida?

To begin the process of potential hiring, you will need to fill out the Nanny Application. Once completed, the Agency Director will review and potentially approve your application and an ABC Scheduling Coordinator will initiate the process of getting your electronic profile started. Conversations will include the requirements that our agency has set in place, questions about the type of family you would like to work for, the type of position that you are interested in, and we will see if you match up with the credentials that we require of all of our nannies. Following the conversation, the Scheduling Coordinator will begin her verification of all that’s been said. She will initiate a National criminal background check, a motor vehicle report, an identification verification, and she will place an order for a 5-panel drug test via Quest Diagnostics. These cannot be completed until your driver’s license, social security card, and CPR certification have been uploaded into your profile.

Is experience required for a nanny position? If so, how much?

Childcare providers of all kinds of backgrounds and experiences are represented by the ABC Nanny Source. Some of the nannies that we represent are mothers who have raised their own children, some have been child educators that have hands-on experience in the educational realm, and some of our nannies have pursued it as a full-time career. All nannies have some sort of prior childcare experience that make them qualified to care for children. All experiences are verified and confirmed prior to representation by ABC Nanny Source.

Will I need reliable transportation to be a Nanny?

Majority of families require their nanny to be able to transport themselves and many families will ask their nanny to transport their kids to and from activities, appointments, or maybe just run some daily errands that the family needs. However, there is the occasional family that barely needs you to drive. Regardless, you will know prior to employment and if it’s a requirement of the job, it will be presented to you prior to any offer acceptance. If a family expects you to drive, it will be discussed whether they will provide you with a vehicle or if you will be expected to provide your own. Despite what a family expects of you, ABC Nanny Source will need a valid driver’s license and reliable transportation.

What kind of salary can Florida nannies expect?

Salary can be determined by a variety of different factors and each family will operate a little bit differently. Depending on a family’s particular requests and your prior experience, your salary can differ. While in discussions about salary, any duties aside from childcare will be discussed as well as all of the expected hours of work. You, however, are not responsible for any negotiation of salary. Your Placement Counselor that will work with you from the beginning, will handle all negotiations in regard to salary, benefits, vacation and sick time, as well as holidays. This allows you to sit back, relax, and enjoy the process and you avoid any and all awkward conversations. We strive to make sure you have the best offer at a highly competitive rate. Majority of part time nannies earn around $18-$25/ hour. Our full-time nannies earn between $700-$1,000/ week. All nannies and families are different, so this is only a metric in earnings, and nothing is set in stone. Everything is fluctuating and varies by situation.

Will I be considered an employee of ABC Nanny Source?

No, ABC Nanny Source does not employee nannies. While we set up all interviews and screenings, the family that hires you will be your final employer.

How do you handle taxes?

ABC Nanny Source has no say in how taxes are handled by families and their employees. However, we do have a variety of options so that families know their options in terms of an outside payroll source.

We are so excited that you are interested in being represented by ABC Nanny Source. Apply today and get the process started!
