Our Process

1 In-Home Consultation

During our initial in home meeting, I encourage you to share your family’s needs & expectations! We’ll reflect on what’s most important to you; parenting philosophies, language preference, personality, schedule requirements & level of education.

2 Matchmaking

We take the uncertainty out of the process by pre-screening candidates. We verify their resumes, work history, and references!Golden Gate Nannies takes the time to learn about the candidate’s personal lives, personalities, philosophies, and what drives them in their career! This ensures candidates will share similar values to you & your family.

3 Initial Interview

Golden Gate Nannies will coordinate a in-home personal interview with candidates at your discretion! Your time is important so we take care of the coordinating details. This entails setting up interviews, phone calls & working trials.

4 Working Interview

When you meet a candidate who is compatible with your family you then invite them back for a working trial. A working trial is a good time set expectations with your potential employee. This is a great time and to observe how they interact with your family!
