Kindred Families represents nannies and families looking for part-time, full-time, and temporary care. Our guided process makes it easy for nannies and families to find their ideal fit.

1

Initial Call

This scheduled call allows families the opportunity to discuss their placement needs and job specifications with Kindred Families, as well as for them to learn about our process in selecting and screening qualified nannies.

2

Policy Review

After the Initial Call, our Kindred Families Process form, and Terms and Agreements will be sent to the family for review. If the family is comfortable with the terms and has signed the agreements, they will then be sent an invoice for the Deposit.

3

Deposit

Once we have received an electronically signed agreement from the family, an invoice will be sent to collect the $500 Deposit. Upon receipt of the Deposit, the family will then be sent a questionnaire to complete.

The Deposit is non-refundable and does apply to the Placement Fee

 

4

Final Steps

Once we have received the completed questionnaire, the Job Description will be drafted and sent to the family for review. An approved Job Description will then go live and be sent to any compatible candidates pre-registered with our agency, as well as advertised on multiple platforms utilized by our agency.

Review Candidates

Each of our families will receive a link to their very own portal where they can review the files of every candidate we have presented to them. Each nanny file includes the following:

  • Resume
  • Nanny Questionnaire
  • Reference Questionnaire (2)
  • Letters of Recommendation (if applicable)
  • Proof of Vaccinations
  • CPR/First Aid Certification
  • TrustLine Verification (CA Only)

Nanny Requirements

 

Experience – a minimum of 3 years professional childcare experience that occurred over the age of 18. Nannies with experience in group childcare settings such as home daycare or classroom centers, do qualify. Nannies that do not have work experience per se, but have a degree in early childhood education, may be considered at the Family’s discretion.

References – a minimum of 2 professional references are required, not including family or friends.

Education – Nannies must have a high school diploma or equivalent.

Work Eligibility – Nannies must be legal to work in the U.S.

Language – Nannies must have English proficiency to register with Kindred Families. The minimum level of fluency must be semi-fluent to ensure proper communication with our agency, and the Family must specify their fluency level requirements. The Family may request additional spoken languages from the Nanny.

Vaccinations – Kindred Families requires proof of negative TB results. The Family may require as many vaccinations as they like for a Nanny to qualify for the role.

CPR and First Aid – Nannies must become certified within the first 30 days of employment. Some Nannies do not have the means to incur the cost of certification while unemployed and need to secure employment before having the ability to become certified. The Family may offer to pay for the course if they require the Nanny to be certified prior to their official start date.

TrustLine (CA only) – Nannies must become registered with TrustLine within the first 30 days of employment. This is a cost to be incurred by the Nanny, so they are given a 30-day grace period for the same reasons listed above. The Family may also choose to incur this cost on behalf of the Nanny if they require this to be completed prior to the Nanny’s official start date.
