Our Process for Domestic and Nanny Staffing

Our Process

At the Nanny Poppins Agency we treat every client and situation as the unique individual or family and that they are. We understand that your time is precious and that your assignment is unique. That is why we take such great care in our search so that you only spend your time meeting with the best candidate matches for your unique situation.

While there could certainly be someone in the same city, with the same background, needs, schedule, education, lifestyle and customs as you and your family, they may have a drastically different workstyle or very different views on parenting or household management. These factors can make all the difference between a successful engagement or a negative experience with someone who is the wrong fit for your family or household. At the Nanny Poppins Agency, we conduct a thoroughly customized candidate search for you, exactingly designed to find the perfect match with minimal work on your part. So sit back, relax and let us find the perfect match for your family or household. Let us take the daunting process of screening out the candidates that you will not want to meet and fully vetting the ones that you will! We will send you their complete files for your review and be ready to help you take the next steps in adding the perfect childcare or domestic professional to your home.  

It’s important to understand that sometimes adding such a critical member to your household can take some time. Some clients find the right fit very quickly and others may take a little more time.  Each search requires the following procedure:
