Nanny Placement fees:
If an offer of a permanent position is made to one of our registered babysitters, then Sitting Pretty is entitled to a placement fee of three weeks equivalent of the girl’s salary.
Once you have been given the name of your sitter, your booking has been confirmed. From that moment the booking fee will be applicable, even if you cancel your booking. No fees will be due to the babysitter unless you cancel on the day of the booking. In that event, we ask that next time you use your sitter, you give her an extra two hours babysitters fees by way of a cancellation fee.
Please note that the quarterly fee will renew automatically until you inform the office by text or email that you wish to pause your membership.
Babysitters are not permitted to take private bookings from our registered families. Please contact the office if you would like to book a sitter.
