Candidates seeking positions in childcare or senior care must be certified in CPR, First Aid, and possess a Fingerprint Clearance Card. All other positions can obtain these as requested.

Will I need a Nanny or a Nanny House Manager and what is the difference?
A nanny is hired to focus on the children, and is not required to perform any housework that is not directly related to the children (i.e. picking up the toys, simple meals, etc…). Should you need a nanny who can do more, a Nanny House Manager is the best solution. Nanny House Managers are more capable of running a home in your absence. She will care for the children, drive the children, prepare meals for the family, run errands, grocery shop, basic housekeeping and/or manage housekeepers/landscapers. She is a nanny hired for all of the domestic duties that keep your house running smoothly.
