Frequently Asked

Savvy parents and organizational leaders know all the right questions to ask! Here are some of our most frequently asked questions.

Does The Right Start place temporary nannies?

Due to COVID-19, The Right Start Staffing Agency is no longer offering temp nannies or temp teachers, but rather quarn-teams are specifically designed to meet the needs of your center and
this team is only assigned to your center. This is to ensure the health and safety of both children
and staff.

And for families: We no longer offer temp nannies to ensure the health and safety of your family and our staff.
Yes! We place temporary nannies, part-time nannies, substitute teachers, childcare staff, and more. Our childcare professionals work with you for a day, a year, or as long as you need them.

How do I know my child will be safe?

The Right Start places your child’s safety as our utmost concern. All our childcare providers have passed background checks, checks against criminal registries, and are well-vetted, and all receive training and maintain full first aid and CPR certifications. Check out the information in our For Families page for the full list of qualifications our staff must pass!

What credentials do the Tutors have?

All tutors have a bachelor’s degree at minimum. Some of our tutors are prior school teachers and have their teaching credentials as well.

What if I (or my child) don't like the nanny?

If you need a new childcare provider, don’t hesitate to ask! Even the best providers aren’t a match for every family or every child, and we want to help you make a great match!

Do you staff substitute teachers? Will my district accept them?

The Right Start places temporary and substitute teachers, daycare providers, and other childcare professionals throughout NYC, DC, VA, MD, and FL. In each locale, we work closely to ensure that your provider has the relevant state licenses and certification to meet your needs.

How quickly can I get a nanny or temporary childcare worker?
