PROFESSIONALLY INTERVIEWED FACE TO FACE

Question:“When your potential Nanny is headed your way for the first time; she’ll be introduced to your children, walking into your home, and possibly managing your household while you’re tending to the necessities of life - how will you feel knowing that she’s already been interviewed face to face with a highly trained team of professional childcare and nanny services?”

Online Searches - common concerns: More questions than answers; dead end leads with countless hours spent on numerous unfit nannies - often ending with exhaustion and uneasy results. Many find that the candidates are often not who they said they were! The searches rarely provide filters for references, backgrounds, official records etc. It’s uncommon to find a career nanny looking for a long-term commitment, and seldom a personality match you’ll be pleased with. You really never know what or who you’re going to get.

Solution - ABC Nanny Source: Time is of the essence. You’ll be pleased to know your future Nanny has a successful past! We have a 10% acceptance rate of the applicants who’ve initially inquired to enter our portfolio. At least two of our Placement Counselors have met our candidates face-to-face for in-depth interviews where every detail of the applicant counts. From body language, presence, resumes, articulation, to their vehicle - we audit everything, and cross-reference with the remaining 10-step screening process. We strive for nannies that will exceed your expectations. ABC Nanny Source has world class standards. We endorse integrity, responsibility, professionalism, and a warm smile!

FULLY Comprehensive Criminal Background Investigations

Question: “Would you warmly invite a Nanny prospect into your home that has not been cleared for a criminal background?”

Online Searches - common concerns: Thousands of candidates - the only red flag that pops up may be too late when a candidate is arrested from a warrant. This is an ever growing problem in our marketplace. All too often, backgrounds are cloaked, insufficient, or even out of date information is presented on criminal backgrounds with simple online databases. Is there a reliable solution?


Solution - ABC Nanny Source: We take safety very serious. In order to be represented by ABC Nanny Source, each applicant is subject to these two safety checkpoints: A national background check, and FBI acceptable electronic fingerprints. Each candidate we present to you is reliable, trustworthy, and checked for any illegalities. It is our top priority to ensure you and your family are in exceptionally good hands! Our intensive process is undeniably the most thorough in local and national agencies.

SAFE DRIVER

Question: “Is a clean driving record important when hiring a Nanny?”

Online Searches - Common Concerns: Moving violations, accidents, and irresponsible actions are completely overlooked in online databases. It is ultimately up to the Nanny to disclose this information. Many candidates are silent with this discussion, fearing detrimental disqualifications. Unfortunately, they don’t consider your children’s safety in their omission of communication.


ABC Nanny Source Solution: This is a completely resolvable issue in our process. As we present a profile of our represented Nanny - we will disclose any irresponsible action noted in a Nanny’s driving history. If the candidate has an overwhelming driving record, we will not represent them. Some liabilities that are pertinent to a candidate's character include: driving under the influence, driving while using electronic devices, reckless/careless driving, and driving without insurance. ABC Nanny Source reserves the right to obtain and disclose any and all motor vehicle reports of our representees with your child's safety in mind.

ILLEGAL DRUGS

Question: “When it comes to Illegal drugs, is it important to you that your potential Nannies are not using them?”

Concern with Online Searches:It is literally impossible to check if online candidates are using illegal substances. This information is not easily accessible to the general public, yet it’s a crucial factor in the behaviors and characteristics of a candidate. You may not be able to identify substance abuse until it’s too late; often it’s an unrevealed component of an online database. It is a burden that will need to be investigated or confronted in due time.

ABC Nanny Source Solution: Illegal substance abuse is an underlying factor when hiring a reliable Nanny. This is another very important safety check; you rely on your nanny to be present physically, mentally, and emotionally at all times! Nannies often become role models and very influential in your children's lives. We take pride in representing healthy, responsible, and commendable individuals. ABC Nanny source is set on resolving issues before they happen - in turn we require all of our applicants to conduct an administered drug screening through Quest Diagnostics. This detailed report advises us on even trace amounts of cocaine, marijuana, opiates, amphetamines, and PCP’s.

VERIFIED CHILDCARE EXPERIENCE

Question: “How do past experiences reflect our current circumstances when considering a superior Nanny?”

Online Searches - Common Concerns: The validity of a resume is often overlooked. References can be for a completely different line of work. Online searches often present many referrals and resumes, but the time consuming process of checking their validity, getting in touch with resources presented, and verifying that each references can attest to who the candidate claims to be can be overwhelming and exhausting! There is often several dozen resumes with a half-dozen references each. Filtering through them can truly be a hassle when searching for an ideal Nanny.

IDENTIFICATION

Question: “Are candidates of illegal status, and is unverified identification a concern when providing in-home childcare?”

Online Searches - Common Concerns: Phishing is real. It has been used against families to access confidential information. Identity theft is often a concern when using unreliable search agencies. It’s a common concern when trying to validate an individual's citizenship as well as proper identification when considering candidates online. Are candidate really who they say they are?


Solution - ABC Nanny Source: Your safety and security is quintessential to yours and our success.

CPR CERTIFICATION

Question: “If an emergency situation were to occur, can you rely on your Nanny candidate to confidently provide First Aid and/or CPR?”

Online Searches - Common Concerns: Occasionally you will find a CPR/ First AID qualified candidate, but did they provide you with the proper documentation? Many times candidates claim they are certified, unfortunately their certifications are out of date.

ABC Nanny Source Solution: We verify and have on file accredited CPR certification documentation for every one of our represented ABC Nannies. This peace of mind is essential in the circumstance where the unexpected suddenly happens.

ONE YEAR PLEDGE

Question: “Is longevity with your nanny vital to you and your family?”

Online Searches - Common Concerns: Many online searches present nannies who are in a transitional stage. Availability is crucial in a Nanny position. After much time and effort is spent to finding an ideal nanny; often these candidates have already made plans to take on a full educational schedule, or are buying time to find the position they are looking for. Professional and committed nannies aren’t easy to find.

Solution - ABC Nanny Source: We believe that family stability is crucial. It is an ABC Nanny Source requirement that each of our representees make a one-year commitment pledge - stating that they plan to commit for a minimum of one year with the family they are placed with. ABC Nanny Source does not accept nannies who are in a transitional period for any reason. Our applicants must fully commit to this duration of employment in order to be represented by our agency. If a nanny’s obligations are too concerning to us, their profile will stay on hold until they are ready to make that commitment.

ONE YEAR GUARANTEE

Question: “Is it beneficial to have a reliable agency that provides consultation year round? If pay increases and performance reviews become overwhelming will an agent be eager to advise you?”

Online Searches - Common Concerns: Personal guidance and assistance is unavailable with online searches; agents simply don’t exist.
