Kayla M.

Kayla is one of the best nanny’s my family had this past summer. She is hands on and plays with my kids. Her willingness to help out in anyway filled my heart. She loved my kids as her own. It made this mama heart at ease knowing she was watching my kids. - Jennifer

Ajanae H.

I would have to say that if you hire this individual. You won't regret it! They are the most caring and trustworthy person that I have ever had the pleasure of hiring. They are always on time and they are set on making your life at ease. If I could hire them again I would. - Heather Anderson-Smith

Kayla M.

My daughter loved being watched by Kayla and I loved that I could have peace of mind that my child was safe while I was working. She is so accommodating to any needs and preferences you may have and she truly wants what’s best for each child. The crafts she plans and the imaginative play she engages in are our favorite. - Meghan

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in Michigan

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.

Michigan 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 Michigan? 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 Michigan?
  • Do you have a Michigan 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.
