Nyah nannied for my girls while we were on vacation in OC over summer. Very sweet and reliable girl and told us about lots of cool spots to go while we were there. She took my girls to the beach and hung out with is as a family so we would be able to drink and have a good time while knowing our kids were safe and also having a good time. - Caroline
Nyah is such a wonderful person. I have referred her to some of my friends and they loved her just as much as my family does. Such a sweetheart and so reliable. I know she cares for a few families but always makes sure she's available. - Steph
Nyah took such great care of my sons. They absolutely loved her. She is nice, trustworthy, and honest. She sent me pictures of my kids the entire time she watched them and my boys had so much fun with her. She took them to parks, beaches, and other fun places they wanted to go and they were always safe. I felt very comfortable leaving me kids with her. - Glenn

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.
