There is a distinct difference between a Nanny from Nannywereld and an au pair or host parent. We guarantee you a highly skilled child care professional with verifiable quality, knowledge and experience. We screen our Nannies thoroughly, and make sure they have the right training and experience. We also employ a pedagogue if there is a need for assistance in this area.
The Nanny will look after them in their own familiar environment, get them up and ready for school (and hockey practice or music lessons) and lend a hand around the house. For example, the Nanny will make sure that dinner is ready when you get home. The Nanny will even get some grocery shopping or ironing done, all to create more peace and stability for your family. And since there’s always a trusted person there to tend to your little ones, you’ll no longer have to hurry home from work.
How many hours and which days your Nanny will work for you is entirely up to you. Whether it’s during the week, in the weekend, before school or in the evenings, it can all be arranged. And if your Nanny falls ill or if you need extra (holiday) care, we’ll come up with a suitable solution together.
All Nannies go through an extensive selection and screening process. They have the right qualifications, an HBO-level of work and intellectual ability, and of course they have experience in taking care of children. They have chosen for Nanny World because they enjoy working with children, as well as like to support them in their developments in life. Together, you will agree on what it is that you find important in your child’s development so your Nanny knows what to focus on in particular.
The selection process consists of:
- Telephone intake
- Extensive personal interview
- Reference check (at least 2 references)
- Check proper qualifications (education and first aid for children)
- Request Certificate of Good Behaviour (VOG)
- Survey report of the City of The Hague
How to apply for a Nanny at Nannywereld?
After a face-to-face intake, Nannywereld will select several Nannies that meet your specific requirements. After meeting each of the potential candidates in person, you will decide which one is the best match for your family.
We believe it is of great importance to have an interview with a Nanny in your home, when your children are present as well. It is crucial that a Nanny and children click. A Nanny will work for you according to the regulation of ‘Services at Home’ of the national government. This means they can offer you day-care for a maximum of three days . If you would need a Nanny more frequently, we could arrange for a second Nanny as well.
