The Nanny Network is the mid-Atlantic’s best-in-class in-home corporate benefit provider. The company was founded in 1995 and has developed a proven, state-of-the-art system for recruiting, vetting and staffing child care and other household providers on a temporary and full-time basis! In business for more than 25 years, we have worked with countless families and professionals in the Baltimore and Washington, D.C. metro area who have put their trust in us.

5. Our Caregiver Requirements

All child care providers must possess a minimum of two years of professional child care experience (or in some cases one year if other specific training courses/assessments have been successfully completed). Also, all child care providers must submit multiple child care references and have the ability to work legally in the U.S. Our preference is for providers to have a car, but that is not a requirement.

6. Screening & Background Checks

Comprehensive Application — Providers are required to complete an extensive online application and questionnaire.
Online Pre-screen – Once a provider completes an application and appears to meet our minimum requirements, an online “pre-screen” is done (including the National Sex Offender Registry, Google Search, Maryland Judiciary Case Search, etc.)
Personal Interview — The Nanny Network meets face-to-face (including Zoom, Facetime, What’s App) with all candidates. Because of our extensive experience in interviewing, we are able to thoroughly assess their skill set and experience.
References Personally Verified — References are personally verified and are available upon request.
Training + Orientation – Our providers are required to complete our guided training and orientation (and pass a test!) before they are eligible for their first temporary job.
Thorough Background Check — We conduct a thorough search of each provider’s criminal conviction record in counties where they have resided in the past seven years. We also run a social security number verification and an address trace. All providers must have a completed criminal background check before being placed in any family’s home.
Infant + Child CPR and First Aid Training – Each child care provider is trained in Infant and Child CPR before being placed in anyone’s home.

7. Our Caregivers are Our Employees

The Nanny Network’s caregivers are W-2 employees of the agency. Therefore, their hourly rate, payroll taxes, and workers compensation are all paid by The Nanny Network. The agency employees, our caregivers are covered under the company’s general and professional liability insurance.

8. Corporate Pricing

For years, The Nanny Network has been offering affordable family care support (mainly through back-up child care) to companies in the Baltimore and Washington, D.C. region. Our philosophy has always been to keep the pricing fair since no one wins if the right balance is not obtained (between caregivers, the agency, the employees and the employer). As a result, our current pricing structure involves a nominal annual management fee plus an hourly rate (4-hour minimum) for every completed job. Depending on the number of services you would like to offer to your employees (back-up child care, household management, pet sitting, long-term placements) and the size of your company, The Nanny Network will work with you to determine the appropriate management fee and hourly rate for the varying services. There are a la carte options available and we want to work with you find a sustainable solution for years to come.
