Faith was amazing at making sure my two children were well watched after. She was great at making sure they went on walks, had different activities, and were interested in her animals. She made sure to ask me prior to anything they did. My children loved being with Faith and I hate that I had to move. - Kari
Emma’s infectious smile and bubbly personality made for a awesome experience for my (4) boys ages 3 to 12 years of age - Stephani
Meg took care of our baby the first 2 years of her life and we couldn’t have asked for a better nanny. As a new mom I was so nervous to let my baby leave my side but Meg would keep me updated with videos and pictures as I was at work and it truly helped so much! It was very nice to see such a young girl already so experience and gentle with a little baby. - Danielle

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.
