Hire a nanny with great references
Precious S.

Precious always had a warm vibe about her that me and husband loved. My daughter absolutely adored her! She cared for my child like it was her own! Sadly we moved in March but we definitely wish precious could have came with us. She such a bubbly and lovable person. I highly recommend hiring her you will not regret it! - Stella

Angel M.

Angel was always ahead of her lesson plan! On multiple occasions I saw her inputting activities weeks out. She loved all of the children as if they were her own, even the ones not in her class. She was a joy to work with & an amazing friend! She was even voted teacher of the month. - Camira

Harsha S.

Harsha looked after our two young boys from infancy through toddlers - we were so heartbroken to have to let her go when our oldest entered school full time. She is reliable, flexible and worked with our family’s needs. Above all, she was loving and kind and patient and treated our boys as her own. She truly became part of our family! - Kirsten

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in Maryland

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.

Maryland Nanny Interviews

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:

  • Do you have experience being a nanny?
  • How do you handle tantrums? Can you share an experience disciplining children?
  • What sort of household tasks are you open to doing?
  • Are you open to a live in arrangement in Maryland? Do you have experience being a live in nanny?
  • Are you open to being a nanny in a nanny share?
  • Do you have any references?
  • Are you trained in First Aid or CPR in Maryland?
  • Do you have a Maryland driver’s license? Do you own a car?
  • What salary are you seeking? Are you open to being paid through direct-deposit, pay stubs?
  • What are your expectations around over-time pay and vacation time?

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.
