A nanny share is when one nanny cares for children from two different families. Each family saves significantly on child care expenses, while the nanny enjoys higher pay than the typical full-time position.Learn more about nanny share
Alex was really great with the kids. She was attentive to both mine and their needs. If she ever couldn't make it or was delayed due to traffic she gave very clear communication. She also helped out with other small things around the house when needed such as preparing the kids' meals, helping me fold laundry on occasion, helping with homework, etc. - Finneus
Alex is a wonderful worker and I would love working with her again! She is very hard working, detail oriented and friendly, always willing to go the extra mile if necessary. She is a bit quiet at first, but always polite and cordial. She is very driven and willing to try again if mistakes are made, and is always willing to own up to mistakes and learn from them. - Jade Price
Alexandria is a wonderful worker. She took really great care of my daughter Amethyst. She made sure she was put down for nap time, and gave her snacks. She was also really good when she got a bit fussy. She is very patient. - Stevon

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.
