Looking for a nanny to help you run a smoother, more efficient household? Since a nanny essentially becomes part of the family, it’s critical that the person you end up hiring is professional, experienced, and trustworthy. Below are a few tips to ensure you find the right match for your children.
Decide What’s Most Important to You
Before you begin any nanny interviews, it’s important to take time to consider what qualities are most important to you so you can draft a comprehensive job description. If you have a newborn, are you only interested in speaking with newborn care specialists?
If you have multiple grade school-aged children, will you need someone with teaching experience to assist with studying and homework? Are you looking for a nanny that will be willing to travel with you on family vacations? All of these are important differentiators in determining the best person for the job.
Look for Professionals
As you begin speaking with candidates, whether it be in person, over the phone, or through email, be mindful of how they present themselves. The best nannies remain professional in their personal appearance, cover letter, resume, and correspondence. Weeding out candidates that don’t helps ensure your children are well-cared for by a respectful, knowledgeable, and attentive childcare expert.
