Hiring your nanny


What am I looking for in a child care provider?
The first step we suggest you undertake when hiring a child care provider is to think about the traits you want your nanny to have and to write them down. We cannot stress enough how important it is to clarify your needs and prioritize them. In this way, later on in the hiring process you will be a better judge of who will be the right care provider for your children.

It is important that your list includes the skills, attributes and experience you want your nanny to bring to your family and the tasks you expect her to undertake in your household. Will she just be taking care of your children or will she be expected to cook meals, do laundry, or take care of the household pet?

Drawing up a list of traits you want your nanny to have will help you create a picture of the sort of person you would entrust with the care of children. You can include descriptive words like, reliable, loving, and experienced, or efficient, strict, and confident.

You will certainly see the benefits of carrying out this exercise later down the line as searching for your ideal nanny can be somewhat overwhelming and it is easy to forget what you were originally looking for.
