Our placement process for a nanny search starts with a family consultation in your home where we go over the details of your position and get to know your family better. To schedule your family consultation and begin a search with Your Happy Nest, a $250 retainer fee is due. After your family consultation, we will start sending you nanny profiles to review of pre schreened candidates that fit your needs. If you hire a nanny through our agency, the remainder of the placement fee will be due. Our placement fee is a one time fee for finding the nanny. Fees are listed below depending on your childcare needs. The $250 retainer is applied to the final placement fee. If you end up finding a nanny on your own, no additional fee is due. The $250 retainer fee is nonrefundable.
All fill in babysitting services are paid per use unless you enroll in our Annual Babysitting Membership. All fill in nanny and babysitting services must be paid in full before the sitter comes to complete the job. All fill in nanny and babysitting services must be booked through the agency.

Annual Babysitting Membership: $250 per year to join our Annual Babysitting Membership program. You will get unlimited nights and weekend babysitting placements when you join. You can request specific sitters but we can't guarantee they will always be available. Nanny is paid hourly rate by family separate from agency fee. If sitters are booked in under 48 hours notice, family will be charged a $25 booking fee. This is to encourage families to send in their requests 48 hours prior to needing a sitter to ensure we will have someone available.

Less than 48 hours notice: $35 per day
Special Event or Hotel/Vacation Sitter: $35 per sitter per day. For special events we will consult you on the number of sitters needed based on how many children need care and their ages.
