Why do you pay a membership fee and then an agency fee each time you use the service?
The membership fee covers the administrative work involved with becoming a Windsor House family and enables you access to over 200 of the best sitters and nannies in town. The $20 daily placement fee covers the administrative work involved with providing a sitter for you at the time you desire it. Each time we match you with a sitter we are spending a great deal of time searching, interviewing, recruiting and analyzing our sitter database so that we can match you with the best care. We charge $20 a day, considerably less than other agencies. We take less so our sitters can make more. With this philosophy, we believe we can attract the high quality child care professionals your family deserves.
It's as simple as 1, 2, 3.
1- If you need an occassional sitter or temporary nanny for less than 3 months you qualify for our $25 monthly membership fee. This fee is due after a free consultation and it covers the administrative costs with joining and maintaining a profile with Windsor House and gets you access to 200+ screened, professional sitters and nannies.
2 - Once you have approved a sitter via an online profile for your service you will pay the sitter their hourly rate at the end of the shift via cash or check. You choose what rate you would like to offer between $15-$20/hr.
3- The Agency charges a $20 daily placement fee for the work involved with finding and securing the sitter. This fee is charged after the completed sitting service.
