Makayla is a sweet baby-sitter. She genuinely loves children and both of our kids (ages 4 and 8) love to have her over. She arrives on time to watch our kids and stays for the agreed upon time. She also helps with picking the house up as they get out toys, games and even loads the dishwasher after dinner or snacks. - Candice
I have watched over the years Jeff's love for kids. He and his wife have always shown great skills in navigating difficult situations surrounding kids and Jeff is a great leader and protector of children. I trust Jeff enough that he is one of only 5 people that I have personally allowed to watch my daughter. I trust him more than my own brother. You could not ask for a better soul. - Joel
He was a wonderful mentor to my son. He would make my son laugh, but gently nudge him in the right direction. He has a wonderful ability to get kids to listen without being "mean." He has became such an important part of our lives and it is all due to knowing he has kids best interest at heart. - Connie

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.
