“Elisha at La Creme Nannies was wonderful to work with; not only professional but great with our kids. She went out of her way to make sure we as parents felt comfortable leaving our kids for an evening out in Milwaukee as we are not from the area. La Creme Nannies came recommended to me word of mouth, which is always the best way to go, and I feel comfortable recommending Elisha and La Creme to all my mommy friends.”
— A. Barnett


The Placement Process

Family Application

Please fill out a completed family application. Send in the application and include the signed and dated Client/Agency agreement.  Once we receive your application, Elisha will contact you to answer any questions that you may have and to be sure that we accurately understand your needs.  If you would like, you may also meet with her in person, if you are in the Madison, WI area, or via Skype. GTM Payroll offers our U.S. clients a free consultation to help you with any tax or payroll questions that you may have.  Nannytax offers our clients in the UK a free consultation.


 Registration Fee 

 Once we receive your registration payment, we then begin to search for nannies/staff that meet your specifications. Your registration payment includes 6 months of on-call nanny service membership, which gives you access to our on-call nanny service at a discounted rate.  On-call service is helpful if the nanny that you choose is ever ill, or if you would like a day or night out, and it is your nanny's day off.  Registration fee payments may be paid by debit or credit card on our secure website or by mailing a check or money order to La Creme Nannies. 


The Search Begins

Once you have made your registration payment we then begin searching for candidates that meet your specifications. The nannies complete a nanny application and a nanny experience form.  The experience form is a quick check list of the nanny's previous experience and qualifications.  The nanny application and the nanny experience form will be forwarded to you.  The nannies are interviewed and screened; references and previous employment history of the nanny candidates are checked. 


Interviews Between You and Nanny Candidates

You may then select candidates that you would like to interview.  You may either set up initial over-the-phone interviews, or you may begin in-person interviews.  La Creme Nannies provides you with a list of possible questions that you may wish to ask the nannies.


Nanny Background Check
Once you have chosen the nanny that fits your family, La Creme Nannies completes the  background check on the candidate that you have selected. We have chosen NAPBS to conduct our background checks.   We forward the results of the background check to you as soon as they become available.  Background checks generally take 24-48 hours, but they can sometimes take 3 business days.  


Placement Payment Due

You will then send a Nanny Position Proposal to the nanny.  Once she(or he) accepts your offer of employment either written or verbally, the placement fee is then due to La Creme Nannies.  You may either pay by check or cash in person, send it in the mail, or you may pay by credit or debit card on our secure website.


Family/Nanny Contract

It is then time for you to complete a Family/Nanny contract.  La Creme Nannies provides a free contract for your use. During this stage, you and the nanny will determine and agree upon things such as salary, any benefits, as well as the terms and conditions of employment. Now that you and the nanny agree, you will both sign, date, and send in a copy of your contract to La Creme Nannies.


Replacement Policy
At La Creme Nannies our goal is to find a wonderful nanny for your family. Even after you have hired the nanny, we will still be here for you. We welcome you to contact us after you have hired the nanny to let us know how things are going.  If conflicts arise, we are here to help you resolve them.  La Creme Nannies also offers a 6 month replacement policy.  If the conflicts cannot be resolved, La Creme Nannies will make a free one time placement to replace the nanny.
