Why do you pay a membership fee and a daily placement fee?
The membership fee covers the administrative work involved with becoming a Windsor House family and enables you access to over 300 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 occasional 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 Windsor House profile and gets you access to 300+ 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.
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.
