A nanny share is when one nanny cares for children from two different families. Each family saves significantly on child care expenses, while the nanny enjoys higher pay than the typical full-time position.Learn more about nanny share
Natalia is incredible: kind, forthright, professional but warm, self-motivated; she really became part of our family. - Betsy
Natalia genuinely loved my four kids. She is athletic, creative and her smile lights up the room. Easy to talk with and very intelligent. She can also engage the kids on their level. Tidy and responsible. I could leave her with 4 small kids and have complete peace of mind that they were well cared for and loved while I was gone. - Dr. Lauretta Stombaugh
Words can't express how grateful I am to have had Juan as a nanny/housekeeper. He basically helped raise my son with me. He was very helpful in so many ways! Our relationship grew more than just employer/employee. We are family, now! Anyone who considers to hire him, do it. You truly won't regret it! - Jonaca
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!
