Hiring your nanny


Face to face interview
The face to face interview is step six on our list and it something we believe should be carried out whenever possible in your family home. The children need not be present as you will uninterrupted time to ask questions to gage whether this person meets your needs. It is important even prior to asking questions to see whether the nanny arrived on time, and if not whether they called to notify you, and whether they brought the documents you requested.

You should focus your questions so that you can gage whether the nanny can meet your emotional needs on top of the practical demands of the job. Along with finding out about the experience the nanny has had you should also tailor your questions to find out specifically if the nanny can carry out the chores you require and ask for evidence of her organizational skills and experience in coping with challenging situations.

Whilst listening to the responses provided by the nanny, ask yourself the following:
Can you trust this person with your children? Does this person seem caring, passionate about her work and reliable?

It is important that you follow your instincts at all times in the hiring process.
