Agency Fees

Permanent Placements:

Permanent placements are any hires made for a commitment of 60 days or longer (though most of our long term nannies are happy to commit to a minimum of one year with their new family!). Placement fees are a one-time cost based on the average maximum number of hours your nanny will work per week, and are due in full to the agency along with a signed employment agreement upon offer acceptance.

Non-refundable Family Registration Deposit : $500
(This amount gets applied to your final placement fee upon hire)

Placement Fee: $4000

Nanny Shares: + $1000 

  (In Nanny shares, each family must register separately and place individual deposits)

Our Guarantee

An agency placement is a significant investment and this is something I don't take lightly; I care about finding the right long-term fit for both you and your nanny! 

If within 60 days of hiring a permanent nanny, you feel you need to make a change, Westside Nanny will happily search in good faith to facilitate a replacement at no additional cost.  Any new searches initiated outside of that 60-day guarantee window will require a new deposit and a new placement fee upon hire, but will receive a returning client discount of 20%. 



Short-Term/Temporary Placements:

I do occasionally accept short-term (60 days or less) placement  assignments on a very limited case-by-case basis. Short-term nanny placements are billed at at $35/working day. This fee is in addition to the agreed-upon hourly rate that you will pay your nanny directly. 


We are taking a break from coordinating occasional sitting services so we can focus on our busy permanent placement season! We enthusiastically recommend our friends at POPPY for affordable occasional care solutions to cover date nights, backup care, appointments, etc.
