Gabby has been a patient and caring presence in our children’s lives as we have undergone changes/shifts. She is dependable, self-motivated and supportive. Our kids really enjoy her; she is calm and fun, always a smile for my babes. It has been easy to trust her with them, knowing she can handle whatever the day might hold. - Sam
I can not say enough about Missy. She is so dedicated to the care, well being and needs of children. She provides endless amounts energy and creativity. I have always admired her ability to truly know and understand each child in her care, as individuals. It is without hesitation that I recommend Melissa Marceau for any position in the field of child care. - Kirsten
Mike was amazing with my son Ian. He was three months when he started watching him and almost a year when we moved. I wish I still had him around to help out. He was understanding of my situation and worked with me so I could be at work. When I was sick he took Ian out of the house so I could get better and rest. I highly recommend him as anyone's nanny. - Iris

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.

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!
