Our Professional Standards

Our Nanny Placement clients entrust us with the important task of finding the highest quality nanny candidates in Kalamazoo.  We help our parent clients dream up the ideal nanny for their family, and parents are only introduced to nannies that best fit their family’s personality, lifestyle, and philosophies.  Parents are able to make a hiring decision from the best of the best, welcoming the nanny they like the most, respect the most, and trust the most into their family!

Our extensive application and screening process gives professional nannies the spotlight!  Nannies that meet our professional standards are invited to begin the application process by submitting a brief preliminary online application.  Nannies must meet our professional standards to be considered for a position, and we are not able to place every nanny that applies.

  • Must be at least 21 years old, must speak English, and must be legal to work in the United States.
  • Must have AT LEAST two years of part or full-time nanny experience, or at least two years in a daycare or classroom setting.   Extensive babysitting experience may also be considered on a case-by-case basis; multiple current references will be required.
  • Must have at least three recent childcare references.  These must be three people unrelated to the nanny that have worked with the nanny directly to observe her past work with children, whether they be previous nanny or babysitting families, coworkers at daycare or school, or anyone else who observed her with children on a regular basis.
  • Must have her own safe and reliable transportation, a valid drivers license, auto insurance, a clean driving record, and must be willing to drive her vehicle to transport children as required by her job.
