"Thanks for all your hard work over the years. My husband and I are so appreciative of your on-call service!"  Deb from Avon

"We began using The Nanny Connection about 5 years ago . The placement process was easy. Melissa listened to my concerns and needs, from the beginning. As our needs change she continues to be attentive and responsive. We have 2 sons, age 8 and 11 and used the on call babysitters. The sitters have ranged ( IMO) from excellent to exceptional . The price is fair and clearly explained up front.  Myra from Akron

Long Term Guarantee Period
Families receive a 90 day guarantee period when hiring a long-term nanny. If the placement is unsuccessful within the first 90 days and the family has complied with all aspects of the agency and nanny/family agreement, The Nanny Connection will refer candidates to a family once without an additional placement fee.   Family must have contract signed with the nanny, and the family must not be in violation of any terms of this contract.

Salaries for nannies usually range from about $14 to $20 per hour according to their educational background, experience, and job responsibilities that you require.  Salaries and benefit packages should be defined in a work agreement prior to employment.  The Nanny Connection will help you in this process!


Families agree to pay nannies via cash or check at the end of the shift (or weekly/biweekly as agreed to in long term contract).  However, talk to your nannies and sitters about the electronic payments that you prefer.  Some of our caregivers are using Paypal, Venmo, Zelle, or CashApp.  See if your favorite care provider takes on of your preferred electronic methods of payment.

PART TIME NANNY (Less than 25 hrs per week, temporary care, or inconsistent schedule)

For families that require very part time care (less than 25 hrs/wk), nannies are generally placed through the on call service.  We would seek out the same nanny, however, the fees are paid similar to traditional on call babysitting.

  • Families pay $200 yearly membership fee.
  • There is a $10 booking fee each day the nanny provides care (even if it is the same nanny).
  • Nannies are paid the on call rate of $12/hr with a 4 hour minimum direct from family. 
  • Should the same family use the same nanny on a consistent basis, there may be a buy-out option available (If the same nanny stays with you, you will not pay agency booking fees for longer than 13 months!!!!)


For those who wish only to use the temporary, occasional or on-call services:

  • Families pay $200 yearly membership fee.
  • There is a $10 booking fee each day the nanny provides care ($40 for a request with less than 24 hours notice. 
  • Daily booking fees are not refunded if the family cancels. 
  • Babysitters are paid directly by the family by cash or check at a rate of $12 per hour with a 4 hour minimum.
  • Care is also available for out of town guests. Guests are not required to join the on call service, there is a $30 booking fee each day.  Click HERE to learn more about of Out of Town Guest service.
