Teresa was always very punctual and reliable. She was very creative and did many activities with my littlies including coloring, painting and baking to name a few. She often took them to the park during the day and was very good at adhering to our schedule. The kiddos loved her. I would highly reccomend. - Ashlee
Anne took care of my two kids in Denver Colorado while I had to attend business. I couldn't ask for a better person, to be honest. She loves kids and takes great care of them. She's respectful and professional. I'll be glad to answer any question. - Erasmo
Ainhoa was wonderful with my kids. She’s one of the only ones that could get my son to open up and actually fully engage. She’s very organized and playful. Able to keep schedules and always made sure my kids were having fun. Would highly recommend Ainhoa for any family looking for a responsible, fun and engaging sitter. - Patsy
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!
