NANNY FAQ

Cost//  There are no fees to be a nanny in our network!  We do not feel a nanny should be out anything other than some time. We will try and find the best family for you!

Legal Pay//  Being legally paid means you will be a legal employee of the family.  They will collect an I9 and W-4, and you will receive paycheck stubs and a W-2 and be required to file your taxes at the end of the year.  The Nanny Consultant is not the employer. The family always is the employer.

Mileage Reimbursement//  Mileage reimbursement is paid out generally monthly at 62.5 cents per mile if you are using your own car to transport children or use your car while on the job.  You can use an app or manually track miles.  I recommend Mile IQ!  https://www.mileiq.com/.

CPR// You do not need to have a current CPR certification to apply though you will need to renew before your start date Many parents are wanting a nanny who has recently taken the class. Just be sure to let us know when you are renewing. Due to Covid many classes are online and I recommend the Red Cross class available at https://www.redcross.org/take-a-class/classes/adult-child-and-baby-first-aid%2Fcpr%2Faed-online/a6R0V0000015EUt.html

Parent Nanny Contract//  Kyla gives every nanny a copy of her Parent Nanny Contract.  You can use this Parent Nanny Contract with any family, and we feel it is the best one on the market.  There is no cost for this contract.

Applying//  You will need to fill out an application (located under the application tab), and we will collect your resume (applicants@thenannyconsultant.com), CPR and First Aid card, written references (if available), and certificates (if available).  Once the application has been approved, we will move on to the next steps, which include filling out a questionnaire, a consent and scheduling a meeting with Kyla. We will finish with running your background check.   

Nanny Role//  A nanny is someone who supports the family in caring for their children.  A nanny will work together with the family, taking full responsibility for the safety, well-being, and development of the children. A nanny's specific duties include the child-related duties, maintaining the cleanliness of toys and rooms used by the children, and preparing the children's meals.  A nanny could be responsible for driving children to school, play dates, and enrichment classes. Some nannies create curriculum for the children too!

House Manager//  A house manager is someone who supports the whole family.  A house manager is typically caring for the children and managing the home at the same time.  Duties can include but are not limited to the following: All laundry, meal planning, meal prep, and cooking meals and snacks for the whole family. Light gardening (picking vegetables and watering plants), errands, grocery shopping, pet care, dog walking, signing children up for activities and making doctor appointments, creating a monthly schedule for children, birthday party planning and shopping, wrapping presents, addressing and stamping invites and greeting cards, researching different programs and schools, car maintenance, scheduling contractors, and organizing home.  There are more duties that a house manager can take on that are not listed.
