Contractual reminders on our service

  • Important Notice: Please remember you are agreeing to contact our agency to request back a specific temp, or ask for someone different. We have contracts with them and we ask that you please not ask them to work for you without contacting the Agency. We rely on and appreciate your integrity and respect for the job we do in screening, getting references, and both up front and random background checks throughout the year on each person, so that we can continue to provide you with quality caregivers.
  • Ask about Buy-outs. A buy-out allows you to “buy away” a nanny from the agency and eliminates the daily agency fee. If you have built a relationship with a nanny and would like to buy her away from the Agency please contact us at
  • After filling out our inquiry form, we will send you the entire Temporary Package, and thanks for considering Rent A Mom!

Hourly or Daily Rates for Temporary Nannies. Note: All nannies set their own rates, but below are some standard rates to expect.

  • Temporary nannies are paid hourly for basic childcare: $14 TO $17 per hour, depending on service provided, number of children, and time of day (evening assignments are often the lower rate).
  • Parents’ Helper is $15-17 per hour depending on responsibilities requested (includes laundry, vacuuming, errands, food shopping, light meal prep, kitchen pickup, etc.);
  • 24 hour rates range from $185-225 per 24 hour period (the rate is hourly if a nanny is working overnight to care for and feed an infant).

Nannies are paid by check or cash by local clients; and by cash only for out-of-state clients.

Cancellation Policy: We require at least 48 hours cancellation notice once your request has been filled and confirmed by the nanny or us (by Friday 3pm if assignment is on a Monday). For 24-hour (around-the-clock) assignments we require at least 4 days notice of cancellation once a nanny has been confirmed. Our success rate at filling temporary assignments is very high. We use our best efforts to fill each assignment, and there is always that rare chance that a request may go unfilled so we apologize in advance.
