Welcome to Village Nannies

Village Nannies is a Cape Town based nanny, au pair and child minder placement agency. Established in 2003 Village Nannies has 14 years experience in the placement of domestic workers and child carers employed to care for and stimulate children in the comfort and security of their own homes.

Parents can enjoy the convenience of having a Nanny at an affordable price. You won't need to take your baby out early on a cold morning or fetch a tired child late in the afternoon. Imagine coming home and finding those time-consuming chores around the house are completed, while at the same time your children have been cared for by the very best in child care providers. Having a Nanny can more than double your "quality time" with your children and with each other, making the whole experience a pleasure.
Whether you are looking for a live-in or live- out nanny, Village Nannies will locate exactly the right Nanny for you!

Village Nannies is a small, owner- run business, focused on placing nannies in homes. We pride ourselves on our close relationships with the families we work with and take great care in making sure that we really understand the needs and expectations of the employers before we begin recruiting the perfect nanny. We therefore prefer to discuss our clients requirements on the phone rather than by email, as this gives us more of a feel of what they are looking for.

Our nannies come to us through a range of sources and are all carefully screened before we consider placing them. The minimum requirement for us to consider placing a nanny is 12 months full- time experience in a home, caring for a child of 2 years or younger. This has to be a home with a similar standard of living to our client's homes.

While it is not an essential part of our screening process, we do recommend that nannies are trained once placed, ensuring that they have at least a First Aid certification. We are able to recommend some very good training courses for your nanny.

Services we offer

The following services are provided by Village Nannies:

◦We screen all candidates extensively, check references and interview them personally. This includes ensuring that they speak and understand English or Afrikaans well, and that they have at least one to two years of full-time experience with children under 2 years of age. You may also contact the references yourself if you so wish, as sometimes referees are more forthcoming to potential employers.

◦We will arrange for you to interview 3 candidates, or more if needed, in your own home, at your convenience. We are happy to advise you on all aspects of the process, eg deciding what your needs are, interview questions, etc. We recommend that candidates travelling by public transport be reimbursed for their travelling expenses, usually R30.

◦We arrange for at least one week’s trial period to see how the candidate integrates with your family and how you relate to each other.

◦Tania will come to your home to facilitate the signing of a contract between you and the employee. We also provide you with the UIF forms and a payslip template.

◦We offer an ongoing mediation and support service to help maintain a positive working relationship.

◦We guarantee that during a three month replacement period, should you or the chosen candidate decide to terminate your employment relationship, we will replace her free of charge.
