Jessica has an absolutely beautiful spirit and it is apparent that caring for children comes naturally for her. I needed a temporary nanny while I had special training for work, and Jessica was just that and more! I can honestly say she’s become apart of the family, and my children have grown to love her just as much as I do! - Bridgette

Sylvi has been caring for our 3 young daughters for close to a year now. She is reliable, caring and treats our girls as if they are her own. She does crafts with our two younger daughters and also helps our six year old with her HW when she gets home from School. She has been an important aspect to our family. Any family would be so blessed to have she’s truly a GEM! - Mira

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.
