Boca Raton, FL, June 19, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- My Kensington Nanny & Home Services (KNHS), the primary provider of professional nanny and domestic home services today announced the opening of two South Florida locations in Ft. Lauderdale and Boca Raton. My Kensington Nanny is a full-service nanny and domestic services placement agency that specializes in placing highly-skilled, professional candidates with families.
The demand for a local, full-service agency has been on the rise in South Florida for the past few years. Significant growth, particularly in Palm Beach & Broward Counties, can likely be attributed to new businesses relocating to the area for cost savings. Naturally, this also attracts professional families from all across the nation. These families are accustomed to in-home child care and domestic services to accommodate their busy lifestyles.
“Families now have a source to help manage the nanny and home staff screening and placement process,” says Angela von Dietrich, President. “Before Kensington, families in this area had to rely on their own ad hoc resources to find qualified candidates.”
Mrs. von Dietrich relocated to Boca Raton, FL from New York and has held various strategic positions in international business development. Mrs. von Dietrich recognized the need for a full-service agency when she relocated to the area and needed a nanny to care for her own two children.
Though Kensington is new to south Florida, they have a number of strong alliances with various national and international associations such as the National Children’s Alliance, 4Kids of South Florida, Florida Network of Child’s Advocacy Centers. These alliances combined with the staff’s networking strength, allows them to find and place highly skilled, resourceful, and caring personnel into the home.
“There’s more to finding an exceptional candidate than the interview,” says Mrs. von Dietrich, “and families now have a local resource that handles much more.” And indeed, My Kensington Nanny offers more than the traditional nanny and home staff referral service. In addition to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) check, they also perform a court records inspection, Social Security verification, Driver’s License examination, National Aliases and Sexual Offender/Predator screening, and drug screening. They can also provide health exams, and out-of-state and out-of-country criminal history inspection.
The screening doesn’t end with the background checks and tests. My Kensington Nanny has also developed an Advanced Interviewing Procedure, the first of its kind in this area. This procedure is specifically designed to profile a candidate’s strengths and weaknesses beyond the traditional interview and background check. Says Mrs. von Dietrich, “Ultimately, families must interview and decide on the best candidate. However, we pre-screen as thoroughly as possible to acquire the best, most qualified candidates.”
To ensure exceptional service to families, Kensington nannies and housekeepers are also required to undergo a Professional Etiquette orientation. This orientation gives families an extra level of quality and assurance that the candidate will maintain a professional and courteous disposition in the home.
