Carli has been babysitting my son since he was two (he is now five). My son is always excited when Carli comes over to babysit because she has wonderful new activities planned for him each time she watches him. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a trustworthy, dependable, fun and energetic sitter. - Megan
She was so patient with the kids (they tend to be a little nuts here or there) and she always went the extra mile for me on her own time. She was dependable, super tidy and stern with my kids. She was also kind, a sweetheart and performed as if there were her own kids. She was truly a gem to have. - Regine Augustin
I believe he/she is fully qualified for the job and that she has a common sense and a caring personality that makes her a wonderful person to work with kids. This allows us as parents to be confident that our kids will be in good hands under his/her care. - Cejane

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.
