Victoria was wonderful with our 2-3 month old son. She played with him loads and made me feel comfortable leaving him with her. She offered many times to do extra stuff outside what we asked her like our laundry or vacuuming. - Elaina
Christina was a great caregiver to my 2 month infant daughter. She was reliable and always on time whenever I needed her to watch my daughter which was several days a week. My baby was always taken great care of and all her needs were met with Christina, we were sad when she moved away! Christina is a great person with kids because shes caring, patient and compassionate with children. - Eleana
Christina was so good with my daughter. She learned a lot from her. She is amazing all around! Would definitely recommend her to anyone! My daughter still asks about her years later. - Heather

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.
