How much does it cost to hire a Nanny?
Please see the rates page for today’s current market rates for hiring a nanny.
Also, please note that these rates are market rates and are not rates set by our agency. Although there may be some wiggle room for negotiation (depending on the circumstances) these are the typical rates that one can expect when looking to hire an Asian nanny/caregiver. Additionally, the rates for nannies and caregivers are base on only one child or elderly. Pricing will be different when there is more than one child or elderly.
What does the Nanny do / What can I expect from her?
As a Live in Nanny, they are responsible for taking care of every aspect of the baby’s/child’s well being 24/7. Therefore, they are required to follow the baby’s schedule and be at their disposal anytime they need something. Things such as feeding the baby, bathing the baby, doing their laundry, preparing and making baby food for them. Basically, everything and anything baby related which requires adult supervision. When the Nanny is not busy w/ the baby, she can also be asked to do some light house cleaning (general tidying of the house) and to cook 1 meal a day (usually dinner)
What Nationalities specifically are these Asian Nannies?
My Asian Nanny focuses primarily on Nannies that are of either Indonesian, Chinese (Mandarin and Cantonese) or Taiwanese descent.
For Live in Nannies, how do they get to and from work?
The majority of Nannies don’t drive. Therefore it is your responsibility to make sure that they have a means of transportation to and from your place of employment. Your options include picking them up / driving them back yourself. Sending for an uber or lyft on their behalf or some other pre-arranged form of transportation.
What languages does the Nannies speak?

Indonesian Nannies can speak either one or more of the following: English, Mandarin, Indonesian and some may even speak Cantonese.
Chinese Nannies can speak either one or more of the following: Mandarin Chinese, Cantonese Chinese and/or Taiwanese Chinese. A few may speak English or very basic English.
What services does Asian Nanny provide?
MyAsianNanny.com (DBA My Asian Nanny Inc) provides in-home domestic care referral service whereas we first pre-screen all nannies in person and get a copy of their ID cards (ie: drivers license, Passport or other). They must also fill out a “Nanny Application” form and be subject to reference calls. We only accept and refer the best out of the pool as not all nannies meet the standards set by My Asian Nanny Inc.
How far in advanced should I start looking for a Postpardum nanny?
For Postpardum nannies search you should start looking when you are about 14-16 weeks into your pregnancy (or when ever you feel your baby is more stable). Looking for a Postpartum nanny around this time will allow you to have more potential candidates to choose from.
How much do you charge for your referral service?
Please see our service fee’s page for more information on how we charge.
Are you able to find me a commute Nanny? I don't want to drive her around or pay for her commutes.
Yes, but it will depend on several factors. First off, know that there are not that many nannies who can drive. Additionally, the ones that do, will typically charge a bit more for their ability to do so. Another factor will depend on where you wish the nanny to commute to. Most of the Asian Nannies will be in and around the San Gabriel area. If you live outside of this area, the chances are lower that they will be willing to drive out to you. To find a driving nanny will take a bit more time so please inquire directly with an agent if this is one of your prerequisites
Are commute nannies cheaper than live in nannies?
The short answer is No. For a detailed rate sheet, please see our rates page
