Hiring your nanny


Trial Run
We hope that up to this point things have gone well, you have narrowed down your selection and are one step closer to hiring the right nanny for your family. Our step seven is the trial run. Once again, you should invite the nanny to your home but this time with
you children present.

This trial run should be the time when the nanny can watch you interact with your children, see where things are located in the house and how the household is run.

After some time you and the nanny should switch roles, with the nanny now engaged with your children, and you present, observing the interaction. Look at the ways the nanny tries to engage your children, how your children respond and ask yourself whether you feel comfortable leaving this nanny alone with your children? It is very important that you observe this interaction carefully until you are satisfied you have seen everything you need.

Your observation of the interaction will change the behavior of the nanny so after a short time step back and observe from a distance to help you get a much clearer picture of her suitability.

When this trial run is over, pay her for her time and say you will be in touch in due course.
