I had her as my nanny for my 2 girls! They had so much fun with her over the summer! She would take them to the park or to the pool and I can tell she truly does love kids. - Anne
Lorilee loved our kids like they were her own. She was always on time, and we lived quite a ways away. I wish she still lived in our area. We would have hired her to help our daughter (who Lorilee watched) with her babies. - Teresa Reding
I hired Martha at Ridgeview in Mobile Crisis in September 2014 and worked with her until I left my supervisor position in April 2015. Martha is kind and thoughtful. She works well with others. She is considerate in her approach snd stays calm in crisis situations. She has knowledge in field along with having a willingness to learn new skills and ideas. Martha is an excellent employee. - Julie Cole

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.
