Peyton took care of my 6 month old boy soon after Covid hit, and took such a weight off of our shoulders as we navigated working from home and transitioning to in-person work again. She kept track of his feeding and nap schedule to a tee, and was a joy to be around. We were so sad when she had to go back to school! - Emma
Ashley is amazing. My son practically grew up with her and absolutely adores her. She took him out on outings, read to him, played games and all sorts of fun things. And she brought her wonderful dog, which was so nice. The dog was so easygoing and got along great with our dog. - Mia Martin
She was so good with our son. Very communicative and I could tell she really paid attention to our son and his needs. We also appreciated that she would clean up after they played or ate - and I noticed she’d do more cleanup than just what they used. It was a very nice touch. - Heidi

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.
