Q: What are top 3 things to look for when choosing a nanny?
A: When you begin your search, it is vital to create a list of what is most important to you in a nanny. While each parent differs in whatthey most value in a candidate, we believe that former nanny experience, excellent childcare references, and a genuine passion for childcare are the 3 most important qualities to look for in a nanny. Each of these qualities ensures that your children are in the hands of a knowledgeable, reliable, and engaging childcare provider. Whether your nanny holds a specific degree, speaks a second language, or enjoys certain types of activities is up to you, but compromising on experience, references, or enthusiasm about a career as a nanny may jeopardize the quality of candidate you hire.
