What to expect from our nannies

While every one of our nannies brings a love of children and a concern for their well-being to the nanny-family relationship, making an excellent match requires a process. We begin with a thorough screening: 
 
Nanny screening includes:
     •      Personal interview
     •      Assessment of professional skills 
     •      Thorough reference check
     •      Extensive background check
     •      DMV
     •      Current CPR certification
     •      Drug test
     •      Personality matching
 
Every situation is unique and every family has specific needs. Some of the things nannies traditionally do include:
     •      Planning creative play and enrichment activities 
     •      Tending to child’s emotional and physical health
     •      Maintaining the children’s play areas and bedrooms
     •      Errands
     •      Light housekeeping
     •      Grocery shopping
     •      Laundry
     •      Planning and preparing meals
     •      Transportation to play dates and activities
     •      Vacationing with the family
     •      Bathing children
     •      Assisting with potty training
     •      Adhering to family’s discipline methods and maintaining daily protocols
     •      Maintaining summary of children’s activities 
     •      Communicating openly with family regarding concerns and challenges
