Jenny babysat for me when my family and I had important obligations. She was on time, she made sure the house was clean, that the kids were fed and ready to take a nap, and was a joy to be around. - Catherine
Hope was a favorite of my kids. They loved being around her and loved her company. My kids are 3 & 4 now but 2 & 3 when they were in the care of Hope. She is very clean and very thorough with being organized. She really was a sweetheart and it was a pleasure having her around my kiddos. If we had not moved away, I am sure she would still be trucking right along with us still. - Jaleel Toppin
From working with Alyssa I have seen that she is very determined and has a kind heart. She is patient with children and finishes everything she puts her mind to. - Madeline

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.
