With all the domestic services we provide here at the Deborah Calkin Agency, we place the most importance in the screening and discernment of our childcare applicants. We know that the safety and care of your children are invaluable and we take this very seriously. The Deborah Calkin Agency is the first and only nanny agency in New Mexico that has been accepted into the Association of Premier Nanny Agencies (APNA) and we are the longest running nanny agency with an impeccable reputation. Many of our Nannies work exclusively with our agency because they know they will be professionally represented and well taken care of because of the on-going nanny training and support they receive. All of our childcare applicants know that a television is not a babysitter and that the safety training provided by the DCA is a must. We recruit those who truly love working with children and will have a positive influence in their lives as well as being a reliable support to the parents.
Our staff is highly trained to weed out phony references and experience by the kind of questions we ask in an interview. We place the highest value on the applicant’s character and integrity; if we feel an applicant has these must-have qualities but lacks the kind of professional experience we seek, the DCA offers Nanny training classes and certifications. All of our candidates must have a minimum of one year of childcare experience with outstanding references to be considered. Parents have the right to request childcare providers with more than one year of professional experience as we cater to each family’s specific needs and requirements.
