Amber is punctual, reliable, and trustworthy. She provided care for my special needs grandson. She truly went above and beyond, and provided growth for my grandson in difficult times. She made a difference in my families life and is a good one to have around! - Jonie Lieberman
Cloe takes such great care in making sure my kids are always well taken care of and that they get to be kids and play. She goes above and beyond and spends the entire time playing make believe, board games, coloring and just having a good time! We love Cloe and have so much fun whenever she is around! - Cate
Cloe is phenomenal with children. I have 3 kids and I always knew they’d be in good hands with Cloe. She never just sat them in front of a tv, she actually did activities with them. My house was always clean, homework was done, and dinner was started when Cloe nannied for me. The only reason I no longer use her, is my kids are all in school now. - Kimmy
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!
