10 Step Screening Process For New Jersey Nannies

We'll find you a qualified NJ Nanny!

We realize how extremely important it is to find the "right" caregiver for your family. Our placement counselors are here to help you every step of the way! As the leading New Jersey Nanny Placement Agency, it is critical to make sure our families know they can count on us in every way. Each stop of our screening process is taken very seriously. Rest assured your security and privacy is treated as our top priority. 

ABC Nanny Source interviews hundreds of nanny candidates each and every month. Our acceptance rate is a mere 1 out of every 10 applicants who apply!  Although our standards are very high and we require a lot from each nanny in order to be accepted - ABC Nannies are very happy because they are rewarded with wonderful long lasting positions and families that recognize them for the professionals they are!

First Interview
This interview is conducted over the phone and typically lasts about 20-45 minutes in duration. The ABC Nanny Recruiter assigned to the applicant will ask a variety of identifying questions to determine the likelihood of them being a successful candidate for our families. If the potential candidate passed the phone interview, a face-to-face interview will be scheduled with two placement counselors.

Second Interview
Families are often surprised to find that several other NJ Nanny Agencies do not even require the candidates in their database come for an in person interview. This is a critical part of the interviewing process for all ABC Nannies. All candidates must come to meet with at least two different placement counselors in our Summit location and complete an extensive face-to-face interview.

Criminal Clearances and Driving Motor Vehicle Report
It is shocking that many Nanny Agencies in New Jersey only perform the National Background Checks after a family has extended an offer to a nanny. ABC Nanny Source always performs the Background Clearances before the nanny ever is presented to any families. In addition, ABC Nanny Source also performs a driving record for each and every nanny.  We realize most positions require the nanny be able to drive.  It is imperative for your family to know this information prior to making a choice so you are making a very informed decision when determining which candidate is best suited for your family.

One Year Commitment Pledge
In order for a candidate to be accepted by ABC Nanny Source, they are required to agree that stability in every family is important and therefore they are dedicated and fully intend to provide permanent care that will last a duration of at least a one year term. Anyone who fully knows they will be relocating or accepting higher education elsewhere in that term is automatically rejected. With that said, if something hinders the nanny from keeping this pledge, ABC offers each family a full year guarantee as a protection.

Quest Diagnostic Testing
As an additional precaution, each and every applicant must submit to a 5-panel drug testing at a local laboratory and produce a negative result in order to be accepted. It is definitely alarming when potential candidates who appear to be very good on paper (resume and application) are unwilling to submit to this type of testing.

Authorization to Work in the United States
It is also an important factor to be sure that everyone you are considering to employ as your nanny is legally allowed to work in the U.S. Each candidate must agree to allow ABC Nanny Source to perform a Social Security Verification Trace.

Photographed for Profile
During the second interview that is done face to face, each candidate is photographed for their profile.

Electronic Fingerprinting
ABC Nanny Source firmly believes it is impossible to be too extensive when it comes to their caregivers. Each and every applicant must submit to full fingerprinting to get to the next phase of the interview process.

Reference Quotes
The profiles you will receive of the candidates specifically chosen for your family will all have each of the candidates’ reference quotes that have been obtained. There are full time personnel at ABC Nanny Source that contact references all day long! The complete details of the information given is provided in the individual candidate profile and will contain the information regarding the job description and ages of the children they cared for.

CPR Certification
  Safety comes first once again! Each ABC candidate that is accepted is fully certified in CPR so emergency situations are handled with knowledge.
