Agency Fees

Membership Fees
Why do you pay a membership fee and then a placement fee? 
The membership fee covers the administrative work involved with becoming a Windsor House family and enables you access to over 240 of the best caregivers in town. The placement fee covers the administrative work involved with placing your nanny. Each time we match you with a nanny we are spending a great deal of time searching, interviewing, recruiting, and analyzing our database so that we can match you with the best care.
When you renew an annual membership we will discount your membership by $100.

Placement Services
For permanent and temporary nanny placements we charge an 8% placement fee of the nanny's negotiated contracted wage. This is considerably less than other agencies with the national average charging a 12-15% placement fee. We charge less so your nanny can make more, resulting in a higher caliber of nanny for your family. This fee is due once you have been matched with a nanny of your choice and employment guidelines have been signed and agreed upon by all parties. If the employment is a year or longer then there is no renewal fee. All placement services require an annual membership.

 

 

How do I pay my nanny?

You, the family, are considered the employer hiring a household employee. This means you are hiring a W4/ W2 employee and need to file the correct employment forms, withhold taxes, and pay employer taxes. This can be tricky and complicated; however, if done correctly, you may be eligible for 3 tax breaks that could cover the cost of your employer taxes. To make this process effortless for our families and ensure you get the tax breaks you qualify for, we have partnered with HomePay who will take care of everything for you and WE WILL PAY YOUR FIRST MONTHLY FEE! A $75 savings! HURRAH!
