Rinny was a wonderful nanny for our family. She always had a long list of fun and educational activities, and was a pleasure to work with. Our daughter loved spending time with her, and we’ve stayed in contact even after she moved on to her next job. We highly recommend Rinny to anyone considering working with her!! - Abuna
Kayla ws wonderful with my boys. She is fun and caring at the same time. They were always excited to see her. She would bring fun activities to do with them. She cleaned up after the boys and always listened to my requests. We have moved out of state, otherwise we would still use kayla as a babysitter. - Jessica
Abigail was such a joy to have. She was always on time, went above and beyond always doing more than I asked of her. My boys loved her (she came at 6 weeks old with our first) and stayed through potty training, teething and everything in between. Honest, reliable and really loves kids. - Kelly
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!
