Nanny Screening Service
Starling Agency is proud to be Seattle’s original Nanny Screening Service! With years of experience in the Seattle nanny industry and a polished organizational method, we can help professionally recruit and screen applicants for you. Starling’s Nanny Screening Service adds a layer of professional support to your nanny search.
What is Nanny Screening?
As you begin the process of hiring a nanny, you may find sifting through the myriad of unqualified, unverified, and unresponsive applicants, extremely time-consuming and frustrating. Our high standards assure that you will only review the best possible nanny applicants available. Furthermore, we will run a high-quality background report on your nanny of choice, in order to ensure your family is safe and secure.
Nanny Screening vs. Nanny Placement
The Screening Service is ideal for families that need a boost sourcing and vetting applicants. Starling Agency helps make the process of finding a nanny easy by posting for your position, reviewing applicants, choosing the top candidates, and running a background report on your favorite candidate. Unlike our Placement Service, the Screening Service does not include in-person vetting, reference interviews, employment dossier, or a guarantee period.
