How We Hire

Only the best nannies are invited to join our team. Our vetting process is designed to ensure that every Adventure Nanny upholds the highest level of professionalism to exceed the expectations of our families. Our screening process is thorough and sets us apart from other agencies.

  1. Submit an initial, online application.
  2. Submit an extensive, in-depth written application, assessing professionalism, experience, personality, and childcare values.
  3. Complete an in person interview (in NYC, Denver, Washington DC, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, or Seattle) or Skype interview to determine if the nanny is a personality fit for our company.
  4. Complete a follow up interview over phone or Skype with another member of our team for a second opinion.
  5. Provide at least (3) childcare or education related references, which we contact directly.  Written reference summaries for each candidate are provided to families considering hiring them.

We run our background checks through PFC, and provide our families with the full report before they hire a nanny.

We perform background checks once a nanny has been interviewed and considered for a position to ensure they are as up to date as possible.
