Safety is critically important when hiring a Nanny. At Nannies On The Go we are committed to thoroughly vetting each Nanny and sitter for our families. We screen our candidates through a lengthy eight step process unlike most on line services.

The Background checks are specifically ordered based on the counties that the candidate has lived and worked. Researchers are paid by Nannies On The Go to physically search through county records. Unlike many on line services, the search is deep and not simply an instant computerized document. A  national  criminal search is also conducted and a national Sex Offender search as well as Social Security traces that identify if the Nanny is legally allowed to work. Often a Nanny will be asked to drive the children, so Nannies On The Go will include Driving Records with all Nanny Candidates.

Work References – Nannies on The Go will personally call, not e-mail, a minimum of three work references. This is a far more thorough approach than the on-line  recordings of references. How can you really know about a candidate by asking only 10 questions? The “recorded” reference used by on-line services could be a relative or even the candidate themselves? By speaking to the parents, Nannies On The Go can hear the enthusiasm or hesitation in each family’s voice. We record all comments and add these permanently to the Nanny file for the potential family to review. For example, a  gap between jobs or job “hopping” is seen as a red flag.

In Office, In Person Interviews  –  A Nanny or sitter may look terrific on paper, or on-line, but you learn so much from body language, manner of dressing, and professional appearance. The Nanny must complete extensive paperwork and follow through with the policies and procedures of Nannies on the Go. Consistent, appropriate communication is an important element when hiring a Nanny, so we are careful to monitor the Nanny’s communication with the agency. Those that cannot communicate, cancel interviews, or do not respond will not be added to the Nannies On The Go registry.

Complimentary Emergency Back-Up and Sitter Services – This is a favorite service for our families. At Nannies on The Go, we know life happens. At the last minute, your Nanny may have an unforeseeable emergency and you have a critical meeting. With over 500 Nannies in our registry, we will be able to provide you with an experienced back-up Nanny so you do not miss your meeting, flight or engagement. There is no charge for this service once you become a family member.

Guarantee – We also guarantee we will search for a permanent replacement if your Nanny does not meet your expectations within four months. We will conduct another search for your family and provide you with a temporary Nanny while we find the right Nanny for your child. No online service can or does provide this kind of insurance.

At Nannies On the Go, we are passionate about finding the utmost qualified nannies to assist in your child’s development and are committed to increasing each child’s potential through professional, experienced nanny services. Whether you need full time, part time or temporary childcare, we understand that security, reliability and compassion come first. We pride ourselves on hiring experienced nannies that are positive, professional and enthusiastic about their work.

As a Nanny service, our business is to help your family function productively when work and busy schedules must be met. After all, when you are confident that your children are in good hands, you can be more productive in your own pursuits, from East Dallas, to West Fort Worth, to North Southlake and beyond. Wherever your dreams may take you, a Nanny from Nannies on the Go can help you and your child reach those goals together!
