 Need a Temporary Job Placement? Work as a Temporary Nanny

Do you need a temporary job placement and  love working with children and have a background in early childhood education? Being a temp nanny offers the opportunity to create your own schedule that fits your needs.

As a temp nanny, you are the employee of the family you work for and will be paid directly by them. Compensation will be agreed to before booking a job. Our rates begin at $17 per hour for one to two children, and increasing for more children and special events. You will be reimbursed for mileage while transporting children and parking costs at hotels. All agency fees are paid separately and do not reduce your hourly rate. You will keep what you earn and pay your own income taxes as required.
