BOE: A Perfect Match
Knowing many busy families are looking for a little relief these days, Karin Dallas opened her own College Nannies & Tutors location in Edmond near Santa Fe and Danforth earlier this year. By providing high quality nannies and tutors, Dallas hopes to help Edmond families achieve both terrific child care, as well as expert educations.
“We provide customized one-on-one nanny solutions,” says Dallas, “as well as tutoring for students who need a little help catching up, or assistance to get ahead.” Tutoring is also provided for college and/or standardized test prep.
College Nannies & Tutors connects you to a qualified nanny or tutor, rather than trying to find one on your own. Dallas says busy Edmond families will benefit in many ways – not the least of which is avoiding the tax hassle that usually goes along with private-pay nanny services. “All you have to do is pay for the service, as you would with any other company, rather than worry about the legalities involved with employing a nanny yourself,” she said.
The service can match you up with a nanny or a tutor for as little as two days or for several years, depending on the needs of the family.
All nannies and tutors go through an extensive background check and interview process before they are hired. In fact, their careful screening starts with the recruitment process, which pre-screens potential applicants.
“We personally check references and everything else in our applicants’ resumes,” says Dallas. “Then we run comprehensive county and federal background checks on all of our nannies and tutors. Once an applicant is hired, they are trained before being matched with a family, and they have opportunities within our company for continuing nanny or tutor education.”
When a match is requested, Dallas personally visits the family in their home for a thorough interview to make sure all needs are properly understood in order to match the perfect nanny or tutor. “I take this very seriously,” says Dallas. “There’s very little that’s more important than the health and well-being of our children.”
