Terms of Service                                                          (Copying/pasting and re-use of these terms is expressly prohibited)

LAST UPDATED on September 13th 2016

Thanks for visiting Napavalleynanny.com (“NVN”)! NVN connects bonded childcare providers with those seeking childcare to provide your children with a safe and enjoyable environment at the premises where you are staying (collectively, the “NVN Service”). 

Please read carefully the following terms and conditions (“Terms of Service”) before you make a booking with NVN.  These Terms of Service constitute a binding legal agreement between you and NVN.    

 

Making a Booking Request with NVN

In order to schedule a childcare appointment with a NVN childcare provider, you will need to fill to out the Booking Request Form. 

You must pay a booking fee to reserve your nanny with a credit card.  This is NON- REFUNDABLE

When making a booking request, you represent that you are of legal age to form a binding contract and are not a person barred from receiving services under the laws of the United States or other applicable jurisdiction.  When creating a booking, you will be required to provide certain personal information about yourself.  

IMPORTANT: When making a booking and before finalizing your appointment with a NVN childcare provider, you agree to inform NVN of any known serious underlying health issues, disabilities - developmental or physical, that you feel could affect the quality of care, or requires a nanny with specialized experience in that field.  

WE DO NOT PROVIDE SICK CARE:  Nannies cannot work directly with any child that has contracted Hand, Foot and Mouth virus or flu, or any potentially contagious illness.  We apologize if this causes any inconvenience, however nannies work at other jobs, at local schools etc, and cannot afford to get sick themselves!    However, runny noses and slight coughs seems to be very common, and we don't have a problem with that.

Please also inform the NVN of the exact number of children that will be taken care of BEFORE finalizing your appointment. Last minute additional children cannot be accepted.  If this happens, nanny will charge an extra $6/hr per child.

YOUR LODGING ARRANGEMENTS:  

You must be CHECKED INTO  your hotel room at least 30 minutes before nanny arrives

You cannot be CHECKED OUT of your room and have us come to hang out at the resort or hotel.

For children under 2 years:  A pack and play or crib is REQUIRED, especially if there are additional children.  Safety first

If you lodge in a different area than stated above, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to come to fulfill this job request due to distance, security, accessibility (steep roads, no cell service etc) concerns. Please inform Maggie with NVN immediately if this should occur.   List of accepted, and not accepted travel areas (not exhaustive) are found in RATES page of napavalleynanny.com

NVN reserves the right to refuse to provide service to you if any information provided on the Booking Request Form or thereafter proves to be inaccurate, false or misleading.  

Once a booking request is received, NVN does its best to provide you, depending on the availability/hours needed.     It is expected that the provider  you select will come.  However, please keep in mind that if the booking is very far in the future, or during a holiday period, NVN cannot guarantee that the chosen childcare provider will be available and, in that event, another childcare provider will be provided.

If your chosen provider contracts the flu or another contagious illness, you will be informed immediately and all reasonable efforts will be made to get a replacement provider.

Once a childcare provider is assigned, NVN collects the non-refundable Booking Fee of $35- $50 per day, via Paypal and sends you a confirmation receipt, along with the phone number of the chosen nanny and a questionnaire to fill out and return.   You agree to pay your childcare provider in cash for the hours worked and it’s always a 4 hr minimum, even if you come back early.

Health and Safety Information and General Rules of Conduct

NVN’s childcare providers always protect the safety of the child, first and foremost.  

In addition to informing NVN in advance of any health issues, conditions or allergies that a child may have, NVN also requests that you agree to the following rules:

  • Please be available via phone or text to advise or speak to the provider in the event that any child gets out of control, or health issue arises;
  • You must be checked into your hotel room at least 30 minutes before nanny arrives.
  •         Understand that children over the age of 6 can go to the pool, but they must be willing to follow pool rules and the childcare provider must be present at all times; parents will be required to sign a pool waiver form in advance;
  •        Childcare providers do not transport your children in your vehicle or theirs.  
  •        You may not solicit or directly contact NVN’s childcare providers for any service not facilitated or booked via the NVN website;
  •        You may not use the NVN service to collect the phone numbers and emails for NVN childcare providers in order to directly solicit or contact the service providers.
  •      You may not pass on the childcare providers phone number to friends or family without her approval.

 

Rates and Cancellation Policy

Cancellations can affect the nannies negatively, as they may have passed up other appointments.

2 days are required, or $50 is charged for nanny's missed wages in most cases. 4 days for major holidays.

NVN charges a minimum of 4 hours for all appointments.

Pets: please inform us if you have any, as the nanny may be allergic.  Our focus is on the children.  If additional care is needed for the pet, please tip the nanny for the extra work.

The rate for NVN’s childcare providers range from $18 to $28 per hour, depending on the number and ages of children being cared for and whether a Holiday rate is applied or if there is Special Needs.  A $10 travel fee may also apply, depending on the travel distance to your location.

 

 

JOBS OVER 8 HOURS require time & 1/2 pay

NVN charges a non-refundable booking fee in the amount of $35 - $50 per day, per nanny, depending on number of families sharing.  

The booking fee is paid in advance via PayPal, but you agree to pay your childcare provider in cash for hours worked 

If a credit card is used to pay your nanny, a 5% surcharge is added to the total bill.    Please pay nannies by cash or check.

For Group Wedding Care - a non-refundable $50 booking fee per nanny is charged.     Number of children attending needs to be submitted 2 weeks before event.   A 'package' rate will be quoted, which will include hourly rate and gratuity for needed hours.   Expect to pay between $500-$1200 depending on number of nannies and hours needed.  

 We bring tons of toys, games, art, toddler furniture, DVD players and expend a lot of time planning and getting ready for these events.  

 

During peak holiday periods, you must cancel 4 days in advance to avoid being charged the 4-hour minimum.  This includes, New Years Eve; Memorial Day Weekend (Fri-Mon); 4th of July and  Labor Day Weekend
