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 applicants for you. Starling’s Nanny Screening Service adds a layer of professional support and efficiency to your nanny search.

What is Nanny Screening?

Are you currently trying to hire a nanny on your own? 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 and recruitment expertise can help you focus on the best nanny applicants available.

Nanny Screening vs. Nanny Placement

The Screening Service is ideal for families that need a boost sourcing candidates. Starling Agency helps make the process of finding a nanny easy by posting for your position, reviewing applicants, and sharing the top candidates for your review. Unlike our Placement Service, the Screening Service does not include: formal background investigation, household employment dossier, sample work agreement, health and safety agreement, tax compliance dossier, onboarding assistance, custom family manual, learning guide, ongoing support, or 6 month guarantee.

Nanny Screening Process

  • Confidential consultations
  • Custom job description & marketing

Nanny Screening Service Fees

  • To begin the Screening Service, a non-refundable registration fee is collected. Once your nanny is hired, a one time placement fee is made.
