Abigail was a real treat. She was always punctual and very present. She always made sure my kids were happy and always very engaging. Abigail is definitely someone that thinks outside of the box. - Sarah
Aliyah was a wonderful employee of our nanny agency while she attended college in town! She was an occasional care specialist for families and group care that needed a babysitter from time to time, and also a part time nanny for a few families. She's very reliable, engaging with the kids, and very professional. She has an upbeat and caring personality also! - Preferred ChildCare
Rosemary is kind and compassionate with all 4 of my children. My children all adorable her. She brings joy into the room every time she is in our home. She has always been on time and does a wonderful job with communication. It has been a great experience having Rosemary work with my children. I would highly recommend her! - Brooke

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.
