Carlette was always on time and presented herself in a clean manor. She loves kids so well it seems like its not a job any more. I would trust her with my kids any day of the week. - Kylie
Her energy was just perfect for my kids. She came equipped with interesting toys, and was involved and very attentive with them the entire time. Malynne seems to have a high level of awareness for others and their needs, and it shines through with her caring spirit. I would highly recommend Malynne for any job requiring a caring and playful sitter. - Elaine
She was very knowledgeable of my toddlers needs and care. My toddler is not an easy cookie and he can be quite the handful. She was able to keep him entertained in a way that was also educational and engaging. She was also able to help me help him explore new foods and textures. She is very reliable, easy to work with and very patient. - Jessie

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.
