Kayla takes charge from the moment she walks in the door. I have three children with a big gap in ages. She takes on each seamlessly. She is sweet and wise beyond her years. Our children absolutely adore her. As an added bonus, she was so helpful with household chores and organizing without me ever having to ask. Kayla moved away and we were all heartbroken. My kids still FaceTime with her! - Aryn
Very good listener and very patient. We have 3 kids with special needs, so it can be a challenging situation and not only did Mara do well with them but she made sure to make personal connections with each of them so the kids respected and listened to her. - Chris
Mara was always on time, present And engaged (instead of on her phone) and enthusiastic about spending time with my kids. She has a great attitude and was engaging with adults and kids. - Beth

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.
