Jaileen was great! Warm, kind, and extremely caring. She was on time, professional, and put us completely at ease. She gave us updates via text, which was a nice way to keep us updated on our baby’s activities. Highly recommend! - Carmen
Jaileen watches my kids 4 and 6 years old on the weekends. When she comes over she brings this basket full of activities her and the kids will do while I am gone. Which is very pleasing to see being we don’t want our kids just sat in-front of the tv. She has always made me confident that my kids were safe and well looked after in her care. - Stephania
Hannah is a very caring person who is awesome with kids. She was so wonderful with my son that he would beg to go over to her house on weekends too! She was very flexible with my schedule and was always early when I needed her. I highly reccomend Hannah as a nanny, your kids will love her, as will you! - Michelle

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.
