     3 Children = $14/hr

Additional 50¢ per hour for night service between 11pm and 6am. Holiday bookings may incur additional charges. Pre-purchase hour packages are available for 5-10% discount over regular hourly rates.

Transport & Field Trips

We can safely transport your kid(s) to or from school, day care, sports practices, and other extracurricular activities . We also offer super fun field trips to give parents time at home for working, cleaning, home projects, or just space to breathe! Each four-hour field trip includes a healthy meal and parents' choice of either a visit to Kidzeum (opening 7/21) or a movie at AMC! Six-hour trips include BOTH Kidzeum AND a movie! Any extra time will be spent at a nearby playground.

     Transport Only (up to 5 miles) = $15

     2 Infants = $125

     3 Infants = $150

Part-Time & Full-Time Nannies (Live-Out Only)

If you need a regular caregiver for more than 20 hours per week, KCC will provide the perfect nanny just for your family! Families seeking a nanny must purchase a Premium Membership Package. Please allow 2-4 weeks for reviewing, interviewing, reference checks, background checks, and drug/alcohol testing. Once we narrow down the candidates to the best few, families will complete their own interviews and have the final say in approving their nanny. Rates vary depending on total scheduled hours and number of children. Weekly rate for one child starts at $210/wk for part-time (min 20 hours) and $320/wk for full-time (min 32 hours).

 

For regular KCC nanny services, families schedule time and pay weekly rates through KCC. KCC takes care of all contracts, payroll, and taxes. If things don't work out at any point during the contract period, we'll find a replacement nanny as soon as possible. Plus, fill-in staff for sick nannies are provided during regularly-scheduled time at no additional charge!

Nanny Placement Service (Live-In or Live-Out)

Nanny Placement means that KCC will complete all the pre-hire work to narrow candidates to the best options for your family. Please allow 2-4 weeks for reviewing, interviewing, reference checks, background checks, and drug/alcohol testing. Once families complete final interviews and select their nanny, the nanny is then hired directly by the family. The family negotiates expectations, salary, and schedule with their new nanny. KCC will provide a sample contract at no additional charge that families can customize to fit their needs.

Nannies hired through placement are NOT KCC staff and are therefore not covered by KCC insurance. Families pay placed nannies directly and are responsible for paying "household employer" taxes and reporting nanny income to the IRS.

Permanent nannies commit to a 1-year contract. Families and nannies may continue the relationship and extend the contract beyond the first year at their own discretion. School-year nannies commit to a single school year, from late August to early June. Summer nannies commit to a single summer From June to August. Families pay placement fees only AFTER selecting their nanny. Placement fees are as follows:

     Full-Year Nanny Placement: $1,200

     School-Year Only: $950

     Summer Only: $350

If a nanny breaches the contract at any time during the initial contract period, KCC will work to provide a replacement for the remainder of the contract at no additional charge.

If family decides it's not a good fit, there is no additional charge for replacement within the first 45 days for full-year nannies, 30 days for school year nannies, or 15 days for summer nannies. After the 45, 30, or 15-day probationary period, the family must pay a pro-rated fee for replacement.
