Families – What to expect

We understand your anxiety about leaving your children in the care of a total stranger, that is why we take great care in doing our very best to make sure that we find a nanny who is the right fit for your family. Our goal is to ensure your 100% satisfaction, therefore we work very hard to make sure that our child care providers are vigorously prescreened, have enough experience with the age group requested by our clients and are willing to uphold your personal values and discipline where appropriate.

Patiently learning, and thoroughly understanding your needs is the crucial first step in our placement process as every decision that we make is based on your personal needs and requirements. We then look through our database to select nannies that are suitable for your specific needs. We will send you the profiles of every candidate that we select so you can schedule interviews with the ones who you would like to meet. A trial period of 3 to 5 days can be set up if you would like to spend some more time making your decisions. When the time does come for you to hire your candidate, we will conduct a complete background check, which includes Criminal History Search, DMV Driving Records and Social Security Trace. We will walk you through the hiring process while also giving you the help and support you need to feel completely at ease from start to finish.

 In the state of California, families are considered the household employer. FSN is a referral agency only; it is not an employer, co-employer, nor independent contractor and assumes no liability or responsibility for the performance of candidate. Client is the candidate’s employer and therefore has to fulfill employer’s legal tax obligations. Client or candidate shall be responsible for payment of all applicable payroll taxes, Social Security, or Medicare assessments, and Federal or State withholding or unemployment taxes arising as a result of employment of candidate.

 Our nannies typically charge between $18 – $40 per hour depending on their qualifications, number of children and needs of family. Our referral fee is separate from the nannies’ salary.  

Taxes

Nannies are household employees and not contractors. Any employer who expects to pay more than $1900 (2015) in a calendar year to a single employee has legal tax obligations. As an employer, you are required to report your new hire to the government, file as a household employer and pay quarterly taxes. Flowing Springs Nannies is proud to partner with HomePay to simplify the HR aspects of being a household employer (payroll processing, tax filing and labor law compliance). As the nation’s leading household employment specialists since 1992, their team of experts provides helpful guidance for our clients.
