Nanny FAQ:

Why should I use NIYN instead of finding a job on my own? 

You never know what you are going to get when finding a job on your own. We have educated our families on nanny responsibilities, nanny taxes, compensation, benefits, and more. We also provide a Nanny / Family Agreement to use so that everyone is on the same page!

How long will it take to match me to a family?

The length of time can vary depending on your experience, your wants & needs, and the current job market. We can not guarantee every nanny will be matched with a family. 

Will NIYN take a cut of my pay? 

Absolutely NOT. Our nannies will never have to pay anything. 

Who is responsible for paying me?

The family you are placed with will be responsible for your pay.
