Paul is a very genuine individual that truly cares for the well being of others. He is very thoughtful, considerate and patient. He has watched both of our boys (2yrs & 4mo) on a number of occasions and they love being around him. He is respectful of rules and routines. I highly recommend Paul as a reliable and trustworthy sitter. - Ben
Paul’s been a dear family friend for years and watches our children ages 2 and 4 months for date nights. He cares for our children as his own, and they love their “Uncle Paul.” He’s also a great pet sitter and takes care of our Golden Retriever when we go out of town. - Lauren
When Paul started working for us, our son was only 9 months old. Pauls duties consisted of feeding, changing diapers, playing, holding and walking with him, etc. Still to this day, Paul is still like family to us! We highly recommend him!! - Travis and Stephanie

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.
