Kassandra was reliable, punctual, and fantastic with my children. Given they’re 15 months apart and we’re very young at the time, she should a great amount of patience, she was also great with picking up and having them help her. She would teach them sign language and read to them often. We loved having her and always knew our littles were in great hands when they were with her! - Kristi
Kristen is fantastic, she is beyond involved and patient with kids. She had fun and creative activities with the kids and they fell in love with her (as we did as parents). She helped them with summer school work, making it fun and interesting. She was extremely responsible, friendly and always kept our house together. We love and miss her dearly! - Tricia
Kristen was an amazing nanny for our 2 boys during the summer. She is responsible, kind and reliable. Our children absolutely adore her and loved having her watch them. She was always taking them to activities and keeping them busy. I never had to worry about my children's care with Kristen watching them. - Franny

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.
