  • Last Minute: +$15 when booking an appointment with 4 hours' notice or less.

  • Time Adjustment: With more than 72 hours' notice, the change is complimentary. With less than 72 hours' notice, there is a $15 charge.

  • Additional Children: Only your family and children are covered by your membership. If other children are to be present and will be left alone with the nanny, this must be cleared in advance with the office due to the extra paperwork required. There is an additional booking fee of $25 per family (to Agency) and $5 per child (to Caregiver).

  • Travel Stipend: $35 per appointment travel stipend (to Caregiver), for appointments more than 30 miles from the caregiver's residence (this generally impacts Fripp Island and Tybee Island clients).

  • Cancellation & Schedule Changes: Any cancellation or schedule change that results in a reduction in hours for an appointment with less than 72 hours' notice will require payment in full to the nanny. This ensures that nannies have dependable work when they hold an appointment slot for you in their schedule.

  • Holiday Weeks/Blackout Dates: Certain holiday weeks/blackout dates are excluded from the Registry Program. Members who desire service during these dates may request appointments at the non-member rates. These dates are provided in early January each year, and the list is available at any time upon request.



Making a reservation with one of our vetted caregivers is easy:

  • By Phone: Call Hilton Head Nannies with the date and time you need a sitter.

  • Online: Use our convenient online reservation request form available to members. Simply submit a reservation, and we will take care of the rest.

All reservations are on a first-come, first-served basis and are dependent on availability. To ensure ample availability of caregivers, we limit the number of members in our program. Once we reach our comfortable limit, we will move new applicants to a waiting list.

Why Hilton Head Nannies? 

At Hilton Head Nannies, we have one of the most rigorous vetting processes in the industry. 

Applicants frequently tell us that our vetting process is incredibly thorough, and we take great pride in that. As an agency, we are deliberately selective about the caregivers we represent to our clients. On average, we admit less than 1% of applicants into our Registry. This means that for every thousand applicants, we approve approximately 10. Typically, it takes 30-45 days for a caregiver to complete our process.

All applicants:

  • Provide 9 references (We obtain written records from each reference and personally speak to each one before admitting someone into our Registry).

  • Take a written skills assessment and must achieve a high score.

  • Undergo a multi-level interview process with our lead recruiter, followed by a final interview with the President of Hilton Head Nannies.

  • Pass a thorough background check conducted by a private firm with whom Hilton Head Nannies has contracted since 2007.

  • Must be Infant/Child/Adult CPR Certified and First Aid Certified.

Hero Discounts

Hilton Head Nannies is proud to offer a Hero Discount to Military personnel, Law Enforcement Officers, Firefighters, EMS Personnel, and Teachers. Please note that this discount cannot be applied retroactively after a booking has been processed. To ensure we can honor your service, please inform us at the time of your booking. An employee ID must be presented at the appointment.


Our caregivers are available 24/7. To ensure availability, we recommend making your reservations in advance of your trip. We will always strive to accommodate last-minute appointment requests whenever possible.
