Because of the requirements for work experience and for post secondary education related to child development (or extensive child care experience), applicants will typically be at least 21 years old. The family's expect that nannies are able to work with them for a minimum of one year and, in most cases, ideally longer.

For live-out jobs, nannies need a reliable vehicle for transportation to the job, and frequently also for transporting the children. If a nanny has young children of their own, they need to have reliable child care for them. Nannies must have a valid driver's license. Their driving record must be clear of any recent offenses relating to drugs or alcohol and excessive moving violations.

Nannies from the Heartland requires all applicants to complete a release form allowing us to conduct background checks. Nannies need to be a non-smoker.
