Job Duties

MBF Nannies are screened, experienced professionals. Our nannies plan entertaining games and activities to stimulate a child’s learning, imagination, and development (we provide weekly ideas to placed nannies)

The focus of the nanny is on the children, with duties relating specifically to their care (including children’s meals, laundry, and transportation), but also include keeping the home tidy throughout the day (picking up toys, loading/unloading dishwasher, etc.). Job descriptions will note any additional household duties, such as organizing, homework support, errands (e.g., grocery shopping), and/or preparing meals.

Placement Process

  • Screening: Complete the online application, which will be reviewed by a Staffing Specialist. If you meet our criteria, we will contact you for an in-person interview. Following the interview, we will complete the screening including reference checks, a criminal background check, and various paperwork.
  • Interviewing: If you pass our screening process, we can then send your profile to hiring families. Those families let Mom’s Best Friend know who they choose to interview.
  • Trial time: Families and nannies use this time to make sure that you are both completely certain of the match.
  • Job offer: Families complete an Employment Agreement for the candidate they hire. This ensures that both parties are clear on the duties, the compensation, vacation, sick time, and many more details. Upon hire, we will be there to support you on an ongoing basis!
