Full-time Nanny Hire

The Kensington Nanny agency offers custom nanny services and options to help you hire the best full-time nanny.

We begin with a candidate search at no cost or obligation. And the agency doesn’t use a database so each search is custom. So we identify and meet all candidates on your behalf and select the top candidates. 

Because you are in control of the process, you choose the nanny’s schedule, job requirements and pay rate. You can decide whether you need a daytime, weekday or weekend nanny. We also have morning nannies and overnight nannies.

Full-time nannies work more than 30 hours per week. In addition, we provide weekend, and overnight nanny service. And there are no upfront fees because you only pay a fee if you hire a nanny.

Part-time Nanny Hire

With the part-time services, you received the same level of personalization as with our full-time services. So the part-time nanny service begins with a candidate search at no cost or obligation and we will identify and discuss with you the candidates that meet your requirements. 

You are in control of the process. Because of this, you set the schedule, job requirements and pay rate. You can hire whatever part-time schedule you need. Most schedules are available such as daytime, overnights and weekends. 

Every candidate is carefully selected, fully screened, highly qualified and fits your family’s needs.

Part-time nannies work less than 30 hours per week. You have peace-of-mind because there are no upfront fees until you hire your nanny.

Comparative agencies can charge you up to 20% of the nanny's salary. This means that you could be charged $100's more for the same service as another family.
Any one can create a profile whetiher or not they have real references. This can be challenging to families who rely on the nanny to be trustworthy. Internet sites charge a subscription because they offer no custom placement, screening or reference verifications.
