The Process is Easy!

Fill out the registration, sort of like a profile. Then a consultant meets with you for about 45 minutes to an hour to discuss details and learn more about your lifestyle and personality (The Initial Meeting). 


After our contract is signed and the first payment is made the TENT Group starts searching for your ideal fit.


We recruit, interview, check references, and conduct background checks, and drug testing on each qualified candidate.


The Elite Nanny Team then chooses our top three prospects and introduces them to you. 

You Interview the Top 3 Choices

After each nanny has passed a preliminary background check, the 3 nannies meet at your house where you interview them individually.


This gives us the opportunity to see the caregivers interact with your kids.


Typically it takes about 30 minutes for the guardians to interview each candidate.

Many Parents Take 24 Hours to Consider Their Decision

At this point, the hourly rate or salary you have chosen is extended to them.


If you choose one of these nannies, the nanny candidate undergoes an extensive background check spanning up to 7 years. They also undergo a 9-panel urine drug test. At our nanny agency, we have zero tolerance for drug use.


Please note that it takes approximately 4 days for complete testing. This is a great time for you, the Employer, to organize your thoughts about what they want to be included in the Nanny Contract. 

If you prefer to keep looking for a childcare worker, we use the applicants' interviews to explore your families' needs.

Your Nanny Contract

If the nanny/manny accepts your job offer, TENT draws up a nanny contract between your family and the nanny.


You will receive a draft of the agreement prior to it's finalization. We welcome clients to add additional notes they thought of at the last minute.


Prior to the nanny's first day, we go over the contractual agreement item by item with your future nanny to establish expectations, boundaries, and responsibilities of him/her. 

About the Founder

This nanny placement agency was founded by a highly educated, former nanny who specialized in Special Needs, Infant Care, Sleep Training, and Behavior Modification.


Every family who hired her said the same thing: We need someone with your knowledge about raising and caring for different children to extend your expertise to us. 


She attended the prestigious Miss Porter's School and graduated from an elite 4-year private college in New England.


Eventually, she started assisting her families in hiring an appropriate replacement when she needed advanced her experience and knowledge. It came to a point where she no longer interviewed for positions but instead provided families with a consultation. 


She is well known in the community and has a continual client base.


"Dorian obviously knows what she's doing. From the beginning to the end she stayed in contact with my wife and I. I can't thank her enough for taking the time to learn who we are and what we needed from a nanny."

- Stephen J.

      "We are so lucky that we were introduced to our nanny Jill. She is everything we hoped for in a babysitter. We couldn't be happier!"

- Jennifer A.

"The TENT Group has saved us so much time we would have spent searching for a nanny !"
