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
Mike is incredible! From the moment we met Mike, it was easy to see how knowledgeable and skilled he is. He did a wonderful job with our daughter — provided us regular updates, a thorough recap at the end of the day, and great advice when we asked for it (he’s truly an expert!). He’s the kind of child care provider I wish I had as a kid. I can’t recommend him highly enough! - Ashley
Michael helped watch our 1 year old twins on evenings and weekends as needed. He is well trained, great with kids, and very focused on their development. He loves bringing them for walks and doing things outdoors which we really appreciated. We are very picky about our childcare providers as twins are not easy, but Michael had prior experience with multiples which gave us a lot of comfort. - Christina Reszka
He was very respectful of my wishes with the children and they enjoyed when he was watching them. He is extremely good with babies! We enjoyed our time with him very much - Rachel
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!
