Hire a nanny with great references
Makayla S.

She was excellent with the kids! I have a 10 year old boy who was 8 at the time. We all know how 8 year old boys can be. She was patient and made sure my child was fed and laughing! - Marie

D'Angeleze N.

She took care of my twins from the age of 2 until the age of 3 and they fell in love with her. She’s very attentive, caring, played with them, teached them things and kept them clean. They still call her and ask For her. She did an amazing job. Due to the COVID-19 I stood home with my kids but I will Definitely call her again if I need her service. - Monica Torres

Natasha W.

We love Tasha and have stayed in touch. She was wonderful and reliable and the kids love her. For w years ago on her first day I asked her to get a play date with a smart child from school and that child has been my son’s best friend for four years. She’s great at making connections and finding activities for the kids. - Lauren

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in New York

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.

New York Nanny Interviews

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:

  • Do you have experience being a nanny?
  • How do you handle tantrums? Can you share an experience disciplining children?
  • What sort of household tasks are you open to doing?
  • Are you open to a live in arrangement in New York? Do you have experience being a live in nanny?
  • Are you open to being a nanny in a nanny share?
  • Do you have any references?
  • Are you trained in First Aid or CPR in New York?
  • Do you have a New York driver’s license? Do you own a car?
  • What salary are you seeking? Are you open to being paid through direct-deposit, pay stubs?
  • What are your expectations around over-time pay and vacation time?

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!
