Frequently Asked Questions

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO FIND A NANNY FOR MY FAMILY?

We start right away to find a nanny for your family. This process usually takes 2-6 weeks, depending on your family’s unique needs. In the meantime, we take care of your immediate childcare needs through our reliable Jovie sitters. Our Jovie sitters offer a temporary solution for the childcare you need while we find the right ongoing nanny for your family.

WHAT DOES YOUR NANNY SERVICE COST?

Our pricing varies depending on the needs of each family. Pricing includes a placement fee and an hourly wage rate. This rate includes the nanny’s wage, taxes and insurance coverage. Our families also enjoy access to ongoing professional guidance from Jovie placement professionals and access to our back up care services. Once we’ve learned more about your specific needs, we can offer your family a detailed quote and price range.

HOW DO YOU SCREEN YOUR NANNIES?

Safety and trustworthiness are very important at Jovie. Our background checks are run by an accredited national provider. This screening includes an address history report covering residence, work and school history. The screening pulls data and looks for records in county, state, and federal criminal history and sexual predator databases.

WHERE DO YOU FIND JOVIE NANNIES?

We find our nannies from a wide variety of trusted connections and ongoing recruiting efforts. We look for caregivers in many stages of life, from college students to retirees who love kids and offer great childcare skills. Some of our outstanding caregivers are referred to us by families who love working with us. Nannies seek us out because they want to work with an established childcare company that offers them professional development and guidance.

ARE ALL OF YOUR NANNIES COLLEGE EDUCATED?

While most of our nannies have completed some type of post-secondary education, we do not solely recruit from college students or college graduates. We recruit caregivers from any age and stage who love kids and have the right childcare skills.

HOW IS A NANNY PAID? DO I DIRECTLY PAY THEM?

Jovie directly pays your nanny through our administrative and payroll system. We bill our families for childcare on a bi-weekly basis. Jovie takes care of the tough stuff like state and local taxes, insurance and payroll so you can focus on other things in life. To make sure you’re always in the loop, you can see your family’s detailed time logs anytime through our secure online family resource center.

WHAT TYPES OF TRAINING DO NANNIES RECEIVE?

When you invite someone new into your home, you want to make sure they’re ready for anything and everything. So we bring you well-trained, qualified and simply outstanding people who are eager to help you and your family out. Our local teams train and educate each nanny who works at Jovie. Training starts with an orientation and continues throughout the caregiver's career at Jovie. These trainings include ongoing instruction on child safety and how to have age-appropriate fun with children.

WHAT HAPPENS IF OUR NANNY DOESN'T WORK OUT?

If the nanny placement doesn’t work out during the first 12 weeks, we’ll find your family a new nanny as soon as possible. Meanwhile, you’ll have access to outstanding childcare through our Jovie sitters.
