I liked the fact that you screened the candidates before sending them to us, rather than sending the candidate to me before I knew anything about them, like happened with (name withheld), your competition.
As a new mom I was nervous about hiring a nanny, but now I couldn’t be more pleased. I’ve sung your praises to everyone I know.
Compared to other agencies Morningside presented a higher caliber of candidate.
Morningside Nannies was far more professional and focused than the other agencies. They listened to my request and responded promptly. I feel very fortunate to have such superb childcare and appreciate the luxury of returning to work with-out worry. Many thanks go to Morningside Nannies for that.
Thank you so much. I would recommend your company to absolutely everyone in need of help. You always asked questions to ensure proper performance.
Objective and professional with an obvious personal touch, small but important comments about each person.
We made you work and you did! I was extremely picky! Thanks.
The quality of candidates was very good. It was a difficult decision but Amy has proven to be a wonderful choice. We could not have found a better person. I would recommend your services to anyone looking for a nanny.
I described the person I wanted and that’s what you found for me. Thank you.
We’ve placed ads in newspapers on two occasions and have gone through an Au Pair program twice. This has been our best experience by far!
At Morningside Nannies, we understand that when considering childcare options, cost is a huge factor. Fortunately for many parents, securing high quality in-home childcare is more affordable than they think. For families with more than one child or with parents who work long or untraditional hours, nanny care is comparable if not more affordable than other childcare options.
At Morningside Nannies we excel with matching the right nannies with the right families. The referral fee covers the cost of screening your candidate and the time required to carefully match a nanny’s skills, experience and personality with your caregiver expectations and preferences. Our referral/search fee is $100.00.
Should you hire one of our candidates for a long-term position, our referral fee is equivalent to six weeks of the nanny’s gross weekly wages. The minimum referral fee is $1000. This fee is payable upon the nanny accepting your job offer. Parents who hire temporary caregivers pay Morningside Nannies a referral fee of $25 to $40 per day. You’ll find our placement fees to be competitive with local and national reputable placement agencies.
Once you’ve found the candidate you wish to hire, you’ll negotiate an hourly rate directly with the nanny. Providers hired through Morningside Nannies typically earn a gross hourly rate of $14 to $18 per hour, with most averaging $15 to $16.
As a household employer, you’ll have tax obligations. Typically the costs associated with paying a nanny equal about 10% of the nanny’s gross annual salary. There are tax breaks and credits, however, which can negate this cost. In fact, the breaks some nanny employers receive exceeds their portion of taxes.
