Why Philia Child Care?

We Match the Nanny
for You!

Philia isn’t just another nanny staffing agency. We are your partners in child care. Before matching you with a caregiver, we work with you to fully understand your needs so that when we send someone to you, you can be confident that the person is a trusted caregiver who matches your nanny needs.

Thoroughly Vetted
Reference Checks

We personally verify three references, and they must be excellent! We don’t just ask if the person worked there, but we ask many questions to get an idea of the person as a nanny to make certain that she is reliable, responsible and a highly qualified nanny.

Background
Checks

Philia’s background checks are the most rigorous in the industry. They go back 7 years and check the national registries plus the criminal registries of every state and county the person has lived in during that time frame. The caregivers driving records are checked. All Nannies are legal to work in the US.

Benefits for Children

Most of our nannies have their own insured cars and we check their driving record for safety.

Foreign Language Nannies

If you are interested in having your child learn another language, hire a nanny who speaks a second language to immerse your child in that language. She can speak and sing with your child in that language and teach him words. Immersion is the best method of learning a language.

Disabilities/ Special Needs

Philia is especially suited to caring for children with special needs because we have an staff member who is a Childhood Development Specialist and because of our work with Seniors we have on staff many Certified Nursing Assistances (CNAs) who receive special training in how work with people who have physical limitations.

On-Call

If you have an on-call emergency, we will do our best to find someone for you, although we cannot guarantee it. On-call may be for people with a sick child, or the regular nanny or baby sitter is sick. Please try to give us 24 hours advance notice or as much as possible.

Physical and Medical Needs

Philia is especially suited to help children with physical and/ or medical needs because many of our Nannies are also Certified Nursing Assistants who have experience with children.

Referral Placements

We have a Family Placement meeting to develop a profile of the nanny that best fits your family’s needs. We preselect the nanny for you based upon this profile, and schedule the interviews for you. Once the nanny is placed, you are automatically enrolled in our babysitting club.

In Service Nannies

We hire the nannies in service to you, meaning the nannies remain Philia employees while they care for your children. The benefit to you is simplicity and ease of mind.
