For Families

The Columbus Nanny Agency will act as your partner in finding the right nanny for your family. We meet each nanny candidate and conduct a thorough interview. We also contact each candidate’s references. By the end of this interview, we will have assessed the nanny’s ability to care for your children as well as her personality and care giving style.

Our nannies are educated and experienced child caregivers that meet the following criteria:

  • 18 years of age or older

  • Completed high school or the equivalent

  • Eligible to work in the United States

  • Minimum 3 years of child care experience

  • 2 + child care references from non-family members

  • In good health and up-to-date on basic immunizations

  • Non-smoker

  • Certified in Pediatric CPR

  • Reliable transportation, valid driver’s license, good driving record and auto insurance

  • Satisfactory background check results including fingerprinting and drug test

We will provide the background check, DMV report and drug test, and connect you with a payroll company.


Administrative Deposit
Once the Columbus Nanny Agency and your family have decided to proceed with the search and placement process, you will complete an Employee Referral Agreement and submit the non-refundable administrative deposit of $350.00.


Placement Fee
The Columbus Nanny Agency will collect the Placement Fee (less the deposit) within one week of your nanny’s start date. The Placement Fees are as follows:

  • $2,200* for a permanent nanny (full-time or part-time)

  • $1,800* for a temporary nanny (4 months or fewer)

  • $400 Retainer Fee

*fees above DO NOT include state sales/use tax


Replacement Schedule

While the Columbus Nanny Agency holds the utmost confidence in successful relationships and work environments for placed nannies and their families, there may be situations that simply cannot be resolved.

If a new nanny must be assigned in the first 3 months of a placement, the Columbus Nanny Agency will assist you in finding a new nanny at no additional charge.

If a new nanny must be assigned during the 3-6 month time frame, we will assist you in finding a new nanny and apply 75% of your original placement fee to the new placement.

If a new nanny must be assigned during the 6-12 month time frame, we will assist you in finding a new nanny and apply 50% of your original placement fee to the new placement.

The Refund and Replacement Schedule will not apply if subsequent nannies must be replaced. Other restrictions may apply.
