Aliza is an amazing nanny. She is detail oriented and attentive. Anytime we needed to change schedules or add hours she was willing to roll with it. My two children loved having Aliza over. She kept my kids entertained with educational games and activities. If we did not move away Aliza would still be with us. Definitely a huge help. - Elizabeth
Aliza was like a member of our own family. She was super helpful and understanding to all our needs from the very first meeting. She is detail oriented, energetic, and extremely trusting. When first hired, my twins were 3 and my oldest being 7. She treated and took care of all three of my children like they were her own. They absolutely love her and any family would be lucky to have her! - Debra
Aliza was a wonderful help to my family during my daughter’s first few years. She was always caring and attentive, I could not recommend Aliza more. - Alexa
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!
