Bailee did not work for me. I know her personally and know what an incredibly hard worker she is. She’s very organized, efficient with her time and in prioritizing jobs. She is a wonderful caretaker and she is FUN!! She loves art, jewelry making, baking, creating delicious meals and menus. I would hire her if I needed her for sure!! - Lori
Juana is a wonderful girl, she worked with our family in Orlando when my baby Coral was 6 months old and we really love her. Juana is a very sweet girl with babies, she was always playing games with my daughter Coral, she sang to her and stimulated her. She knew how to meet the assigned schedules in Coral's routine and she always had my daughter's safety in mind. - Laura
Lulu is incredible. She is clearly a bright girl and very capable. She required very little, if any “hand holding” and always knew when to reach out to us or to take initiative and figure things out herself. She has very good judgement and the kids adored her. She’s very calm and open to playing w them letting the kids take the lead. Great babysitter! - Stephanie Johnstone
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!
