How it works
AS A FULL SERVICE NANNY AGENCY,
WE ARE SIMPLIFYING THE STEPS TO AIDING IN YOUR NEXT HIRE!
Getting To Know You
We speak with you one on one to discuss your needs. Our initial conversation will consist of learning about your family dynamic, what you are looking for in a caregiver, any personality or professional qualities that will mesh well with your family, your schedule, the job responsibilities and expectations you’re seeking in a caregiver, and your family’s childcare philosophy. We also take time to learn about each member of your family along with any specialized training requirements or needs. If you are seeking a hire outside of childcare, we will focus on the job duties, requirements, and expertise you are seeking. Once the details are confirmed, we set up a time to meet with you in the comfort of your home. We suggest starting your search 4 to 8 weeks before care is needed to begin.
* as of 3/15/2020 all family meetings have been moved to virtual online meetings. Our new applicant process is also conducted virtually for the time being.
Once we have a foundation of your needs, your customized candidate search begins! We may look through our current pool of pre-screened Nashville nannies and household employees, or we may have to recruit specifically for your job. Either way, this process is customized for each family, and we search based on education, experience, skills, and traits that will exceed your expectations. Each candidate is personally interviewed, evaluated, and reference checked prior to being introduced.
We create a short-list of candidates to introduce you to, narrowing it down to the top 10% of those who meet your requirements. We ask clients to review these candidates, knowing they have been vetted and screened, and offer interviews to candidates who stand out. Interviews are arranged by our staff and conducted by you in the comfort of your own home or office, with our hiring packet in hand to assist in asking the right questions. Each family's privacy and needs are of paramount importance to us. We do not have public or private family profiles that are shared with candidates. Our thorough job descriptions keep your information confidential and private until interviewing with potential candidates.
Trial Days & Hiring
When you meet the right nanny or household employee, we encourage a paid working interview or trial days. We equip you with a customizable Professional Employment Agreement that will define and outline your employees responsibilities, terms of employment, and benefits, which establishes a great start with you and your household employee. We supply all the support materials during this process and provide valuable resources & referrals for hiring your employee
Southern Standard Nannies offers continuing support for our family clients. We are here to answer questions, assist with Back Up Care, and help with the growing needs of each family.

Southern Standard Nannies does not employ nannies or household employees, and serves as a referral service only. We do not hire or fire any individual candidate/household employee at any time, nor have any say in doing so, as that decision is up to the sole discretion of the hiring family/employer.
