A nanny share is when one nanny cares for children from two different families. Each family saves significantly on child care expenses, while the nanny enjoys higher pay than the typical full-time position.Learn more about nanny share
We hired Vanessa as an evening babysitter when I went back to work after my second child was born. Vanessa would pick up my son from aftercare and my daughter from daycare four days a week, make them dinner, do baths as needed, and help put the baby to bed. She is extremely reliable, kind, and unflappable - not an easy task with a four-year-old and 6 month old competing for your attention! - Robyn Fink
Vanessa was a fantastic caregiver for our daughter from K through 6th grade. She was extremely professional and reliable. Vanessa was also very caring and interactive and provided excellent homework help. The only reason that we ceased working with Vanessa is because my daughter outgrew the need for a sitter after school. We miss Vanessa and highly recommend her. - Lorraine
Boni took care of our 6 months son, made sure he was happy all day long. She prepared his meals, plaid with him, took him to walks, made sure he took his naps and organized play dates. As our soon grew, Boni helped him to learn how to crawl, how to play and made is happy. She always made us feel safe that our son is in good hands. - Alex

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.
