Are all Nanny Agencies in NYC the Same?

ABC is a New York Nanny Agency!Absolutely not! When selecting your Nanny Agency in NYC, we encourage you to do all of your homework! We want you to be sure you are hiring a New York Nanny Agency that can actually provide superior and safe service! The least expensive service may very well end up being the most costly if you get nothing back in return! ABC Nanny Source has composed a list of quality questions each family should ask when comparing agencies for your consumer protection.


Does your agency meet face to face with ALL candidates?

Meet the Staff at our NY Nanny AgencyMany NY Nanny Agencies do NOT require face-to-face interviews. In essence, some agencies have absolutely no idea who they are recommending to your family to care for your children. This would certainly not be a safe option.

All ABC Nannies have met with a Placement Counselor for a face-to-face interview prior to acceptance. We would never even consider representing a candidate we have not met in person and fully screened. Each individual represented by ABC Nanny Source has undergone our 10 Step Screening Process. The Placement Counselors will be able to provide you with detailed information including each candidate's demeanor from the interview in our office. Our NY Nannies are legal!

Does your agency verify that the candidates are legally authorized to accept employment in the United States?

What a horrible situation it would be to find out that you hired someone illegally! This verification has been completed on all potential candidates, to ensure your family is protected and confident with your choice. ABC Nanny Source requires and verifies that all candidates accepted are citizens or legally authorized to work in the United States prior to acceptance.

Does your agency require nannies to undergo clearances before or after the point of hire?
Our New York Nannies go through a 10 step screening processIt is an alarming fact that many Nanny Agencies do not require a screening process at all. Some may perform some clearances, but only after a family has hired them, not before. When you employ ABC Nanny Source, you can be certain that each and every candidate has already been thoroughly interviewed by our staff in person and has completed the entire 10 Step Screening Process! In fact, you will be reviewing the results of each candidate's drug test, clearance reports, CPR certification, fingerprints and references prior to the hiring process.

Our NY Nannies are guaranteed to stay at least a yearDoes your Agency provide a guarantee on the services provided? If so, how long is the guarantee?

Shamefully, some Nanny Agencies in NYC do not provide any kind of guarantee. Some may offer a very short-term agreement, while others offer an extended guarantee and expect you to pay a significant prorated fee if you need to use their services again. This is hardly a reasonable assurance that families can count on. ABC Nanny Source will initiate a replacement nanny search for a small administrative fee of only $325. This fee is waived for 30 days following the payment of the hiring fee or a previous administrative fee.

When you register with ABC Nanny Source, we offer you a complete One-Year Guarantee. Most of our Nannies do stay far beyond the one year we require! However, if there is any reason why the placement does not appear to be transitioning as planned, your family should feel completely confident that the agency hired will completely stand behind you. It is our ultimate goal to make sure that you are completely satisfied with your ABC Career Nanny. In almost all instances, you will be reassigned to your original Placement Counselor, since she would be the person who knows you best, and will expedite your request and begin the search Does your nanny agency in NYC require any life saving skills?for a replacement right away.

Does this Agency require Nannies to become CPR Certified?

Absolutely! Unfortunately, an alarming number of Nanny Agencies in NYC do not require ANY lifesaving skill training or certification prior to releasing them to work with children. No one expects an emergency to happen with our children, however, if an emergency were to occur it is unthinkable for an agency to provide you with a child caregiver that is not trained and prepared on how to handle an emergency situation. Prior to being accepted, all ABC Nannies are required to become certified in CPR. No exceptions - safety comes first!
