She was always happy to take care of my little girl Paige. My husband and I work different shifts but it was difficult to get a good nanny for our daughter. She was kind, helpful with cleaning, and had a light dinner for us when we got home. Definitely would hire her again for summer job! - Hiram Soria
Shay was so amazing with my son! She made sure he was always happy and taken care of correctly. Her patience with my son as a newborn up until a toddler was remarkable. My son loved her and never had an issue with being dropped off with her. I routinely got updates on how he was doing and appreciated the time she took to let me know how things were going throughout the day. - Kendel
Shay is extremely dependable, always shows up on time, and never calls out of work unless she is absolutely sick. She is bubbly and fun to be around and can put a smile on pretty much everyone’s face! I loved working with Shay and would work with her again in a heart beat - Loren

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.
