She took good care of my daughter for a few weeks while I was on a trip. She stayed at my house and kept things clean and organized. - Abby
Izzy took care of my 3 month old in my home while I worked. She also traveled with us to help with my daughter. She was the baby whisperer!! My daughter was not always easy to sooth and didn't sleep well. Izzy was patient and kept her calm and happy. I was nursing and trying to work. Izzy did a great job of gently keeping me on track. - Wendy
Abi is an incredible Nanny and was able to connect with all three of my girls. They are all very different and everyone of them loved her! She is punctual and diligent in her work ethic. I would highly recommend her. Our loss is your gain! - Colleen

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.
