Annyssa was wonderful. She was always on time and even if I needed a last minute sitter she was there. My daughter really enjoyed her time with her. Annyssa abided by our schedule and was always consistent with how we wanted our daughter to be cared for. She was very neat and tidy and taught my daughter to be the same. - Leila
Annyssa was very reliable and was able to work with my on-call schedule. My kids loved her and she was a big help around the house. - Alan
Annyssa is truly wonderful at her job. She makes sure my son gets plenty of activity time, time playing outside and always reads him stories before nap time. She goes above and beyond in all of her duties and is always on time and reliable. I would highly recommend her as a nanny! - Laura

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.
