We can’t recommend Jaymi highly enough. She watched our daughter for about a year and was just incredible. She was so engaging, responsible, thoughtful, and fun. She went above and beyond to ensure our daughter was cared for, was learning new things, and was always helping out with things like meal prep and keeping the house organized. We adore jaymi and any family would be lucky to have her! - Kaitlin
Jaymi is an incredible nanny! She was amazing with our daughter - engaging, kind and loving. She always had fun activities planned and my daughter loved spending time with her. She is extremely reliable and was never late. We were heartbroken when she moved out of state and couldn’t care for our daughter anymore. I can’t recommend her enough! - Nicole
Marisol is extremely kind and patient person. She was helping me some days for 6 months before I left Montana. Thanks to Marisol my son is fully bilingual now because she helped him a lot with the school and the words in Spanish. I am extremely grateful to have met her. - Licel
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!
