Our Promise to You:
It goes without saying that our clients’ happiness and long-term satisfaction is very important to us. We work hard to find the right person for each of our clients—one that they will be happy with for years to come. And as a result of our proven placement process most of our clients never need to hire a replacement employee, nanny or otherwise. However, for your peace of mind, ABC offers a very competitive replacement policy for all long-term clients.
- As a client of ABC Nannies, if you are dissatisfied with your nanny or household employee for any reason within the first 90 days we will start a new search on your behalf at no additional charge—this is your free replacement period.
- If you contact us outside of the 90-day free replacement period, we are happy to offer a pro-rated credit, based on the employee’s first and last day of employment, which can be applied towards your next placement.
- Please see our Family Agreement for all terms and conditions.
