Brittany always showed love and compassion with my kids. She was always doing something fun with them and guiding and teaching them while i and their dad was at work. - Crystal

Elizabeth  S. - Seeking Work in Virginia Beach

Elizabeth was our first choice when we wanted someone to nanny our 2 daughters for the summer. Both our girls had specific sensory needs and she went above and beyond to come up with fun yet educational ideas for them. She listened to what our needs and wants were and followed through. - Stephanie

Grace was easy to talk with and coordinate schedules with. She liked tidying up. She was very kind and patient with the children. She wore a smile on her face every day effortlessly. When she left I told her it would be very difficult to find a suitable replacement for her. I would recommend Grace to anyone seeking a reliable nanny. - Rebecca

Common Nanny Responsibilities in the United States

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 to housekeeping or meal preparation, it is good practice to communicate these expectations with your nanny before hiring them. The different duties that you ask of your nanny should impact how much you should pay your nanny.

Nanny Interviews:

Once you start connecting with prospective nannies, the next step is a nanny interview. Here is a list of some nanny interview questions:

  • Do you have experience being a nanny?
  • How do you handle tantrums? Can you share an experience disciplining children?
  • What sort of household tasks are you open to doing?
  • Are you open to a live in arrangement? Do you have experience being a live in nanny?
  • Are you open to being a nanny in a nanny share?
  • Do you have any references? If yes, here are some questions to ask the nanny's references.
  • Are you trained in First Aid or CPR?
  • Do you have a driver's license? Do you own a car?
  • What salary are you seeking? Are you open to being paid through direct-deposit, pay stubs?
  • What are your expectations around over-time pay and vacation time?

Following the interview, it is 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 is important 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!
