Nanny Matchmaking

Nanny Stella is a parent and nanny coach, and matching families with the perfect nanny is a natural extension of those services.

We know that success is ultimately about human behavior, it is the blend of personalities and timing, finding the right candidate for the right family at the right time. We take the necessary time to understand the unique needs of each family and care provider ensuring great outcomes with matchmaking.

Stella knows the factors that make finding the perfect match possible and always makes sure that placement enhances both the lives of the family and the nanny.

The Screening Process

As parents, we understand how important your children are to you and that is why each nanny we consider for placement goes through an intensive screening process. Nannies will have gone through the screening process below, completed a background check, and LIVE SCAN by TrustLine prior to placement.  TrustLine is the only background check authorized by state law to use three databases that private investigators and private background check companies cannot access. You can learn more about TrustLine by clicking here.

Minimum requirements for a nanny to be considered for placement opportunities:

  • 21+ and legally authorized to work in the US
  • 5+ years of recent childcare experience
  • Clean driving record
  • Clean criminal record
  • CPR & First Aid Certifications
  • Educated to college level
  • Excellent references
  • History of childcare

Resume & Application

We review all applications and resumes, paying close attention to their education, skill-set, and work history.

Telephone Interview

If an applicant’s resume meets our strict standards, a telephone interview is scheduled. During the interview, we get a feel for the candidate’s personality and communication skills. We share our expectations for those we consider for placement opportunities.

Face to Face Interview

We revisit and discuss their application and resume. We will ask a wide variety of questions allowing us the opportunity to get to know them better while gauging their morals and ethics. We identify the type of position the candidate seeks and determine what type of family would be a good fit for their personality.

References Checked by Phone

We require a minimum of three childcare references. Each reference is contacted by telephone and is asked a list of questions about the services and experiences provided by the candidate, we ask the reference to speak openly about the candidate.
