Ina has been working for us for years now. More recently last summer she was able to watch my kids for a few weeks at a time while I was on a few business trips. I can assure you that your young ones will be taken care of when working with ina. She is blessed with the power of taking care of children. I will definitely be booking with her again! - Amine
Ina is one of the best sitters I have ever had. She has watched my daughter since she was a newborn and continues to do a great job now. I wouldn’t trust anyone else to watch my daughter but her. From her kind spirit to her knowledge of kids, you can’t go wrong with choosing her!! - Kiana
Tanya is "Nana" to my kids. She was the nanny for my daughter from 5 months old until she started preschool at age three. I put the end date as now because she still is my "go-to" for date nights. She is truly a part of our family and my kids love their time with Nana. I could not have asked for a more caring and compassionate person to care for my kids and I know she will be in our lives forever. - Nichole

Before beginning the search for a nanny, it’s important to understand what you’re looking for and if a nanny is the right choice for your child care needs. In hiring a nanny, first, you should think through what responsibilities you expect your nanny to handle. With that information, you can create a profile so that nannies can reach out to you. The boundaries for nannies duties vary from family to family. In general, a nanny is responsible for making sure your children’s needs are met, including things like ensuring they have opportunities to play and be active. When tasks go beyond child care, for example, housekeeping or meal preparation, it’s good practice to communicate these expectations with your nanny before hiring them. Along with the different duties that you ask for, experience and location can impact how much you should pay your nanny.
Once you start connecting with prospective nannies, the next step is a nanny interview. To make things a bit easier, here’s a list of some nanny interview questions to consider asking:
During the hiring process, it’s essential to ask for references, and by asking their references questions you gain a better understanding of they will fit in your family. As you get closer to hiring a nanny, be sure to run a background check to ensure your kids are in good hands. When evaluating a prospective nanny, it’s essential to make sure you’re setting the foundation for a good relationship with your nanny. You can do this by being clear about your expectations around nanny responsibilities and compensation, and of course, by being friendly and welcoming!
