Nicole watched my daughter and was wonderful with her! I knew my daughter was safe and well taken care of! Nicole interacted with my child and gave her so much play time and activities indoors and out! Nicole was also realiable and someone I could count on daily while I was working. - Tamara
She was most concerned about my child and the care he received from her. I never had to worry about his well being with him in her care. I fully trusted her and still do. - Kristina
I worked with Nicole on the mom and baby unit at OSF she worked as a PCT and took care of me when I had my first child. She eventually went on to be my full time babysitter when she became a stay at home mom and i went back to work. My child absolutely loved it with her and spent a large chunk of her life with Nicole. She ate her first meal there and took some of her first steps. Nicole is amazing - Chelsea

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.
