FAQ's About Virginia Nanny Jobs through ABC Nanny Source


What kind of Salary can I expect to make as a Virginia Nanny with ABC Nanny Source?

This depends on a lot of factors. Each family is going to have varying degrees of needs, which will certainly play a role in the salary range being offered for the Nanny position. Also taken into consideration will be your prior experience and/or childcare and educational credentials. The number of hours you will be on duty will be decided when negotiating your salary or hourly rate. One great aspect of working with ABC Nanny Source is you will not be the one negotiating with the family at all, the Placement Counselor you are assigned to will discuss the best salary/hourly rate possible, as well as vacation benefits, paid sick time off, paid holiday plan and major medical benefits. What this means for you is that you are able to avoid the uncomfortable discussion regarding salary and benefits. We will take care of making the offer official and competitive! Most of our part time permanent Nannies are earning an hourly range of $13-$18 and full time permanent Nannies are typically offered a weekly salary versus and hourly rate that falls between $600-$800+. In nearly all cases, the position will also offer vacation, sick time, holiday pay and sometimes major medical insurance. However, this is to be used as a guide and each particular situation will vary!

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

Initially start by completing our online Nanny Registration form and an ABC Placement Counselor will contact you for a preliminary telephone interview. We will discuss what requirements we set forth in order to be considered for a position. We will ask several questions to determine what kind of position you are looking for and if you have the credentials that our families are looking for. Then, you will come meet us for a face-to-face interview. Once it has been determined that you are ready to get started, you will be requested to fill out some paperwork! There will be release forms allowing ABC Nanny Source to perform necessary Criminal, Driving Motor Vehicle, and Background checks. We will also need to make copies of your driver’s license and social security card along with taking your photograph and fingerprints. You will also be required to pass a drug test within 72 business hours of being offered to join the ABC Nanny Source database. If you are not already CPR certified we will also schedule you to complete an Adult, Child, and Infant CPR course. We take childcare very seriously, and only accept candidates that share that belief! Once you have completed all the necessary steps, we will immediately start looking for an ideal Nanny position for you! In most cases, you will likely begin interviewing with Virginia area families within the week!

How much experience should I have?

Our network of Nannies consists of caregivers with a variety of backgrounds and experiences to offer, some are mothers themselves whose children are grown or in full time school, some are previous pre-school teachers, many are certified elementary or high school teachers and most are professional Nannies who have been serving in this industry for many years! All who apply must have prior verifiable childcare experience. In order to be considered for a position with ABC Nanny Source we will also need to verify personal references and education credentials.

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

In most cases, you will need to be available to drive if requested. Some families need to have their Nanny drive on a regular basis in order to take their children to and from activities, get extra groceries, go to the post office, and escort them to doctor visits or outside activities, etc. Other families may rarely need you to drive, depending on the age of the children. This is something that will be discussed prior to commencement of employment. If you will be required to drive, it will also be discussed as to whether you will use your personal vehicle or if one will be provided. However, it is a requirement of ABC Nanny Source that you are an authorized driver with a valid driver’s license, and insured vehicle to be accepted into our database.

Will I be an employee of ABC Nanny Source?

No, since we are a Nanny Referral Agency, our agency will be doing all the initial interviews and screening, but you will actually become employed by the family that hires you.

What about taxes?

ABC Nanny Source
does not dictate to families how taxes should be handled. However, we offer many recommendations of organizations that can help with this process and a lot of families typically hire an outside source to handle payroll.

How long will it take to find a Nanny position?

You can anticipate interviewing with families within one week from your face-to-face interview, assuming you comply with the drug testing and all that is required to become fully registered. All our Nannies are placed within a 30-minute radius of their home. Once your electronic profile is activated, we will begin submitting it to families who are seeking a Nanny in your area. Our families will review several profiles and choose which candidates they think, based on the profiles, would be best suited to their situation. When families request to have an interview with you, an ABC Placement Counselor will notify you and tell you all about the position. If you are interested, we will agree on a mutually convenient time for you to go to the family’s home for an interview. Your Placement Counselor will provide you with the name of the family, their address, and phone number in case you get lost, and the approximate travel time it should take you to get there. Your interview with the family will approximately be one hour. After your interview, you will be requested to call the Agency to provide a summary of how the interview went and if it appears to be a position that you would like to be considered for. After the family has finished interviewing candidates, you will be notified if the family has made an official offer to you or if the position has been filled. Typically, families will interview anywhere from three to five candidates and you will have an answer within the week. In the meantime, you will likely interview with several other families which will allow you the most exposure and highest chances of securing a position fairly quickly!
