Elite Nanny Placements

Sarasota Nanny Placements

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. 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. 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 our search for candidates that we feel best fit your family needs. Then we will begin sending you information on the nanny candidates. We will set up interviews with the candidates that you are interested in meeting.

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.

Summer Nanny:
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.

Temp Nanny:
A temp nanny is for short term needs.
