Kyra is such a pleasure to have as an employee. She is so thoughtful and caring. Having her look after my children kept my mind at ease knowing they were in responsible hands. I can not recommend her enough and wish we were able to take her with us when we moved! - Thomasina
My daughter was born with a rare disease that at the time no one new much about . Erin was meticulous about the care she gave to my daughter physically and mentally. Erin is truly using her God given talent by being a wonderful nurse. - Doreen Norris
Erin took care of my brother for over a decade. She truly became part of our family. My parents are slow to trust caregivers for my brother but they trusted Erin to many tasks that no one else was trusted to do. We still compare all caregivers to Erin as the gold standard for what we are looking for. We were so sad when she moved to Florida! She will be an amazing carer for your loved one. - Morgan

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.
