$199 Search Fee is required to begin the nanny placement process. This fee is non-refundable. This fee helps conduct the beginning stages of screening nannies, running background checks, and reference checks. It also includes an in person meeting with our office team to discuss nanny taxes, payroll, common questions, and more. This is the time that we also start building your family profile.


We do NOT charge an annual Search Fee for our babysitters. Instead, we charge a placement fee each time you use them. We offer temporary placement of babysitters in all homes and hotels for families visiting the area. There is a $40 booking fee per day and a $50 booking fee for less than 24 hour notice. Please note that there are special rates for requests on major holidays and requests outside the greater Charlotte area. The client agrees to pay for the booking fee before the babysitter arrives. Once your babysitter arrives, you are responsible for paying them hourly after that. Our sitters charge $17+ per hour. This is a great option for date nights, holiday parties, holiday shopping, or a backup nanny if your nanny calls out sick or has an emergency (back up nannies do not have a placement fee if you hire a nanny through QCNC).
