WMN Policies

  • Families and clients must complete registration prior to nanny services beginning, which includes having a current Family Intake Questionnaire and Client Agreement on file.
  • We require a three-hour minimum for all of our services. Less time can be accommodated but will be billed at minimum.
  • Services are subject to special rates and fees based on service type, individualized needs, and nanny responsibilities. Nights, weekends, holidays, short-length shifts, and last-minute care qualify for premium rates.
  • Rates are subject to change. Nanny raises are considered and negotiated as appropriate.
  • Care provided under our all-inclusive nanny services is subject to our non-compete. If you prefer to hire, pay and manage your nanny at your own discretion, we have placement-only services available.
  • West Michigan Nannies requests that clients and nannies notify management immediately if their needs change that might result in cancellation of care, rescheduling, or ceased services as a common courtesy for all and to allow for alternate arrangements as necessary.
✓ West Michigan Nannies employs and manages your nanny. All services, including the legalities and liabilities of legal, W-2 employment and payroll, are covered under one hourly rate.

✓ Designed to handle all aspects of hiring and employing your nanny. This includes recruiting, interviewing, screening, hiring & onboarding, payroll & withholding taxes, insurances, ongoing nanny management, and more.

✓ Did you know? Employing a nanny can cost thousands of dollars per year. You must comply with tax, wage, and labor laws in the state of Michigan. There are several employer responsibilities to consider when hiring your nanny such as registering for an EIN, state unemployment insurance, workers’ compensation insurance, managing payroll and taxes, and staying current with all necessary quarterly and annual filings.

✓ All-inclusive services are ideal for those that are looking for a low-maintenance childcare solution and either do not have the time to manage all employer responsibilities or prefer not to. Best for families and clients seeking our ongoing support and guidance and peace of mind that everything is taken care of.
