Frequently Asked Questions:
How do you screen your nannies?
Every Nanny is interviewed and vetted by the owners of Elite Nannies of Nashville. They are screened thoroughly, using criminal background checks, extensive reference checks, and social security verification checks.
What does a typical Nanny charge?
The average nanny in Middle Tennessee makes $15.00-$20.00 an hour before taxes. Most of this depends on your nanny's experience, the number of children you have, and your nanny's duties. By law, a nanny is considered a household employee. This means that your nanny uses a W2 form and not a 1099. Contact us to learn more about what this means for you.

Why are your part time services limited? Why aren’t you offering part time services in other parts of Middle Tennessee?
Here at Elite Nannies of Nashville, we are focused on providing families with the BEST career nannies in the area. Career nannies work career hours that will typically reflect a 40 hour week. Nashville and the surrounding areas are growing rapidly, and the cost of living is increasing. When we recruit, we are finding that career nannies simply cannot afford to take on a part time position, particularly a part time position outside of the city limits. We thank you for understanding that we only offer career nanny recruitment and are looking for nannies who are looking to GROW with families for years to come.
I have used free online services to search for a nanny. I have interviewed many nannies with little to no luck! Why should I use a nanny agency?
There are several online search engines geared towards helping families find nannies and sitters themselves. Unfortunately, most times you will end up with a candidate who is less than stellar with little to no professional experience as a nanny. The most experienced nannies use agencies to find families like you! Elite Nannies of Nashville has access to the best nannies in Middle Tennessee.
What is Nanny Share?
Nanny Share is where two families come together to share the same nanny. If you have a friend, neighbor, or family member with like aged children, Nanny Share could work for you! This is an ideal option for families who are looking to have a more economically friendly approach to hiring a nanny. Both families will pay up to 2/3 of the nanny's rate. For example: If your nanny's rate is $16.00 an hour for two children, each family would pay her 10.66 per hour. We do not match the families. However, we are happy to give advice on where to find another family!
Do you include tweens and teen care?
Absolutely. We offer nannies for children of all ages!
How long will it take Elite Nannies of Nashville to find us the perfect nanny for our family?
It usually takes us anywhere between 2-6 weeks to place a nanny with a family.
What is a Finder's Fee?
A Finder's Fee or Placement Fee is the fee you pay a nanny agency to go out and recruit a nanny for your family. Elite Nannies of Nashville provides several options. Contact us to find more information!
Do you help families outside of Nashville?
We service most of Middle Tennessee. We have had the most success in nanny placements in Nashville, Sylvan Park, East Nashville, 12 South, Brentwood, and Franklin. However, if you live within an hour of Nashville, TN, we would love to speak with you!
