I loved having Lauren as the Nanny for my little family. She had an amazing relationship with my children and was always very professional and caring. I always felt like Lauren truly cared and enjoyed being with my children. I would hire her again on the spot, she's so easy to work with and patient. - Rebecca
She’s very attentive, loving and responsible. I had her watch my baby at only 2 weeks old. I was very confident leaving my child with her. She knows exactly what to do in an emergency, and she has all her first aid/cpr training. I still use her weekly to watch my child, as well as weekends. She is by far the best babysitter I’ve had. - Allyson
Alayna was great with our children as a nanny for two summers. She was punctual, trustworthy and had good communication skills with us. She also has her drivers license and took the kids to different activities and planned fun outings. Our kids really enjoyed their time with her. She had a high energy level and was always in a great mood. We would recommend using Alayna as a nanny. - Kathy

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!
