After thuroughly considering the needs and preferences of both our nannies and families, SoCal Nannies assesses which candidates would fit perfectly with each family.

The following are the routine steps SoCal Nannies takes to properly place nannies in the homes of families:

  • All Nannies or Newborn Providers need to fill out and submit an initial application online with resume and cover letter.
  • If selected, nannies will begin the screening process.
  • Once screened and approved, nannies will be asked to give a phone interview to give more information about  themselves and their work histories.
  • SoCal Nannies will contact all nanniesí references and set a date for a personal interview.

After a face-to-face interview and having met all the qualifications our agency requires, SoCal Nannies will then submit your information to potential families that could be a good match for each nanny. Please note that our agency  will not send a nanny to a family unless that nanny meets all the requirements and needs of that family.  For the  face-to-face interview, please be prepared to present the following:

  • A copy of a valid form of identification.
  • Proof of citizenship and/or authorization to work legally in the United States.
  • Three reference letters.
  • All credentials obtained.
  • A copy of CPR certification.
  • A copy of first aid certification.
  • A copy of Trustline registration.

Once selected by a family, a personal interview between the family and the chosen nanny will be scheduled. After a Nanny is approved to being working for a family,  the nannyís "trial period" with the family will begin to make certain the relationship is cohesive. If the working relationship between the nanny and family continues, an agreement between the two parties must be signed. This agreement specifies expected schedules, responsibilities of the nanny, possible benefits, salaries, and other details the family and nanny may think is important to have in writing. Finally, a nanny cannot continue to work for a family if the family has failed to pay the services fee to SoCal Nannies  within seven days of the first formal day of work.
