Trusted Nanny Referrals
We begin with an in-person consultation, which allows us to gather information to refer the best candidates. One of our nanny placement specialists works with you personally as your advisor and consultant through the process and beyond hiring to ensure you always receive the highest levels of service and care. Our unique, caring approach has led to continued growth over the years as our services are recommended by families, obstetricians, pediatricians, and childbirth educators, so we're happy to provide references for our organization and our nannies by request.
What You Should Know When Choosing a Nanny
Interview and observe all potential caregivers with your child and explore why this caregiver wants to care for your child. How does he or she feel about the work? Are they warm, caring, attentive, and responsive to the child? Make sure you take the time to get to know the potential nanny. Make them comfortable so they can express themselves. Also, remember to ask questions such as:
- What They Like To Do With Children
- Their Feelings About Discipline
- How Would They Handle Naps, Eating, & Toilet Training
- How Would They Handle an Emergency
Ask a Lot Of Questions
Remember to ask the right questions so you know what to expect. For example, try some of the asking "What if my child cries all day?" or "What if my child refuses to eat or nap?" If you think of a question, you should probably ask it. You should also remember to check their references and work history.
There are a number of other ways you can protect yourself, your family, and your child when hiring a nanny. Be sure that your nanny registers with TrustLine, and check both the criminal background and driving reports. Always trust your instincts when hiring a nanny, and hire someone that both you and your children like. Once you've chosen the right caregiver, remember to:
- Set Up Clear Job Responsibilities & Good Business Practices
- Communicate Regularly & Openly About How the Childcare Arrangement Is Working for You & Your Child
- Express Praise & Appreciation When It Is Deserved
