Kyra watched my kids for a summer. The kids had a blast! The summer was filled with games, trips to the park, and walks. She also prepared meals and snacks for them each day. Kyra is very friendly and respectful and we enjoyed getting to know her. - Allie
Annel is an amazing babysitter with my kids! She is so caring and treats them as her own. I am not sure what we would do without her when we go out of town. She cooks for them and plays with them the whole time. A lot of babysitters just have the kids watch TV or tablet the whole time but not Annel! She is truly an extension of our family and the kids love her. - Braeden
She really loves being with my kids! They always had some great story to tell me about their day with her. She is very responsible for her age and a great person. I love her and her passion for being with kids. - Grace

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.
