FAQ’s About Harrisburg Nanny Jobs with ABC Nanny Source

Ready to start? Great! Here are some frequently asked questions and answers to prepare you:

What kind of Salary can I expect to make as a Harrisburg Nanny?

Your salary as a Harrisburg Nanny will depend on a lot of different factors. Every family is different and will have variety of needs and requests that can have an effect on your salary range. The amount of hours and the type of duties, along with your education, and prior childcare experience will all be taken into consideration. One advantage of being part of ABC Nanny Source is you will never have to discuss salary with the family. The placement counselor that has been assigned to work with you hand in hand will negotiate the best salary/hourly rate and benefit package for you. You do not need to worry about having uncomfortable conversations with the family, we will handle all of the negotiations for you and help you to receive the most competitive package available. Our full time permanent nannies usually earn a weekly salary between $500 - $700+ per week, while our part time nannies receive an hourly rate of $13 - $18 per hour. Most full time nannies also receive paid vacation, paid sick, and paid holidays. These ranges are used as a guideline since each situation is unique.

Will I be an employee of ABC Nanny Source?

No. ABC Nanny Source is a Nanny Referral Agency, and while we conduct and schedule all of the interviews and screening processes, you will be a direct employee of the family that hires you.

What do I need to do to apply for a Harrisburg Nanny job?

Start by completing ABC’s Nanny Application. After your application is received, an ABC Scheduling Coordinator will contact you to discuss your interest in becoming a Nanny. We will conduct a preliminary phone interview and discuss the requirements of becoming an ABC Harrisburg Nanny. The Scheduling Coordinator will review your credentials to make sure that your qualifications will meet the needs of our families. We will ask you a series of questions to determine exactly what kind of position you are interested in. After this is complete, you will be asked to come to the office for a face-to-face interview. Upon your arrival at an ABC Recruiting office, you will be asked to fill out paperwork. Some of these forms include release forms for criminal, background and motor vehicle checks. We will make copies of your driver’s license, social security card, and CPR certification where applicable. We will obtain electronic fingerprints and take your picture. You will be asked to submit to a drug test through quest diagnostics with 72 hours of accepting an invitation to join ABC Nanny Source. Once all of your clearances have been received and your training is complete, we will immediately start searching for your ideal nanny position. In most cases, you can expect to start interviewing with potential Harrisburg families with the week!

How much experience should I have?

In order to be considered for an ABC Nanny position, you must have prior verifiable experience. The amount of experience can vary greatly depending on your background. Our database consists of a variety of Nannies whether they have personal experience from rasing their own families or from real life positions as pre-school or certified teachers! In addition to prior experience, you will also need to provide personal verifiable references and education credentials.

What about taxes?

ABC Nanny Source offers families several resources that can assist them with the process of paying household employees, but does not dictate how the family should handle taxes. Typically families will hire an outside payroll agency to handle the entire process for them.

Will I need to drive for my position as a Nanny?

In order to become an ABC Nanny, you are required to be an authorized driver with a valid driver’s license and have an insured vehicle. Many families will request that the Nanny they hire is able to help with the children's transportation to and from activities or doctor visits. The requests from families to drive can vary greatly. Each situation is different and normally depends on the age and activity level of the children. This information will be disclosed prior to your acceptance of the position. If driving is a requirement of the family, you will be notified as to whether you are required to use your own personal vehicle or if a vehicle will be provided for you.
