Tessa was wonderful with my daughter. She watched her from when she was 6 and she's now 12. She was fun and interactive with her. She prepared lunch and dinner for her when necessary. She was very dependable as well. We reccomend her highly. - Christina
I was privileged to employ Mariah at my home daycare over the summer. She was a reliable, fun, loving, and hard working employee. She has a good understanding of the needs and abilities of children. Mariah was also warm, nurturing, and very responsive to all of the children. They all absolutely adored her. She gained experience in providing care for infants to 12 year olds. - Tiffany
Judie worked part time for me for several years. I could always depend on her to give my children the best care. She was a positive influence in their lives. From day to day activities, light housekeeping, transportation to homework help. I knew when I came home everything would be taken care of. - Lisa

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! And of course, as you learn how to hire a nanny, Nanny Lane's nanny services are here to help you along the way.
