At Peas in the Pod, we truly care about our nannies. We are always interested in individuals who are dedicated, motivated, genuine, creative, and responsible. We want to work with nannies who love children and who want to develop relationships with their families that are meaningful and lasting.
We offer free nanny placement for nannies. We also serve as a liaison for you and the family and work to establish salary, sick pay, holiday pay, and paid time off to ensure that you are pleased with your placement. In order to become a nanny with Peas in a Pod, you must have at least 1 year of prior (formal) nanny experience or comparable experience in a childcare setting; you must have at least three verifiable childcare references, valid CPR/First Aid, (fingerprint clearance cards are always a bonus, but not required), and must be willing to submit to a background check. In addition, unless the nanny position is specified as a summer/temporary position, we ask that all nannies make a verbal one year commitment to families.
Peas in the Pod values continued education for nannies. We offer information for nannies to learn about a variety of topics. Some of those include: how to promote literacy with children, free activities and resources for nannies/children in the Phoenix area, ways to achieve structure and routine in a family environment, how to work with children with special needs, and how to speak to children using empowering language which promotes children to take responsibility for their actions.
