Super Nannies is happy to assist our clients with short term contracts should they require a temporary nanny.
Our temporary nannies are available to help families that are:
- Visiting South Africa on holiday;
- Or if an existing family’s nanny is on maternity leave;
- A nanny is on sick leave or a parent needs additional help because their spouse is away or unavailable.
These scenarios appear to be our most common requests for a temporary nanny.
Super Nannies follows the same nanny agency placement process whether it is a permanent or temporary nanny. Please read our placement process below. Doing the nanny placement process, the interview and trial procedure is still important especially as children are involved. We still insist on a trial period despite the short time frame. We never short cut this process.
Please contact Super Nannies for our temporary rates based on your time period you require the nanny for.
Enquiries can be made to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Temporary Nanny Placement Process – How We Work
Fill out our registration form online to begin the process of finding you a nanny. This helps our nanny agent understand what your requirements are.
The nanny agency will either call or email you to explain how we work and answer your questions.
Please pay the registration fee of R250 to kick start the nanny placement process.
The nanny agent will send you between 3 – 5 profiles to review.
Once you have decided on the candidates you wish to interview, our nanny agent will organise the nannies for the interview. We will arrange for you to interview between 3-5 candidates, or more if needed, in your own home, at your convenience.
Once you have interviewed the nannies, you will indicate which nanny you would like to trial. You may trial the nanny for a day. You will need to pay the nanny directly for her day’s work. Super Nannies will let you know what her daily fee is based on her hours worked and her transport costs. We offer a maximum of three days for trial for 1 or 3 nannies.
If you like the nanny, please inform the agency prior to offering the nanny employment. Our nanny agent will send you all the necessary contracts, paperwork and invoice. We will inform you and advise the nanny on how to proceed forward.
