The one-on-one care that a nanny provides gives children a deep sense of self-worth and security while giving parents convenience, flexibility and peace of mind.
Elite Family Care’s extensive recruiting and screening process is always in motion and we always have a pool of qualified, experienced nannies. Our process starts once we receive your parent application form. We will set up an interview where we will come to your home and meet with you regarding your family needs. There is a $175.00 non-refundable retainer fee which is due during the initial family interview to get the process started and, if you hire a nanny through our agency, the retainer fee is deducted from the final placement fee. The family interview gives us the opportunity to get to know you and your family better to make the best match possible. During the family interview we will provide you with all information needed to find, hire and keep your nanny including pay, taxes, benefits, etc.
After the initial interview we will begin sending you nanny applications to review. Then we will set up interviews for you to start meeting nannies.

Types of positions
Full Time Nanny:
A full time live-out position is where a nanny will work between 30-50 hours per week for your family. A typical full time nanny prefers a fairly set schedule in hours.
Part Time Nanny:
A part time position would be where the nanny would work up to 29 hours per week for your family. Typically the nanny would have a set schedule each week. Part time nannies can vary from after school positions, just a couple of days per week, a weekend position or any other schedule as long as the nanny is guaranteed a certain number of hours per week.
Family Assistant/Household Manager:
A family assistant/household manager is typically for a family who has kids in school at least part of the day and needs extra assistance for the family or household during that time. A family assistant can help with anything from meeting with home maintenance workers, preparing meals, grocery shopping or other errands, light housekeeping, and organization. A family assistant is a flexible position that you can really tailor to your family’s specific needs.
This placement is if you need a nanny over the summer. A summer nanny will often be a college student or teacher looking to work as a nanny before the school year starts.
Elite Family Care gives you the freedom to go to work, have an evening out, or even go out of town, knowing that your children are being properly cared for. Day or evening we are here to provide the best of care for the children while you are away.
