Anyone who is considering a nanny to help with the care of their children should ask the following questions: How much hands-on experience should the nanny possess? Is level of education and/or training certificates important? What personality traits are important? How much will the nanny be paid? Will the nanny be expected to drive the kids to activities and/or help with household chores? Once these important factors are narrowed down, check out job websites and nanny placement agencies to find the perfect match. Conduct a thorough interview to ensure compatibility and request permission to complete a background check. Create a nanny contract with agreed-upon terms, including job duties, pay and hours, and house rules.
