Nannies – Sleeping Angels Co. Nanny Agency
Choosing the Right Nanny – You Can’t Afford to Go Wrong!
Finding the right nanny is far from an easy task. It may actually require you to keep searching for a really long time until you find a nanny that you know will be a perfect fit for your little one. However, this process can definitely be made considerably easy by simply going with the right agency.
A good childcare agency takes care of pretty much everything you need to do in order to find the right nanny, and may beyond that, if needed, to make sure they find you a nanny that may well turn out to be even better than the one you could find on your own. This is because a good and reputed agency has the required experience and expertise needed to figure out your (and your child’s) needs and finding the right fit based on them.
This is something that sets us apart from the rest, as we have some excellent staff with extensive experience in childcare services. We have helped more parents than we can remember in finding a nanny that exceeds their expectations, without requiring them to go through the hassle of doing tens of hours of research and still not being able to eliminate the risk of ending up choosing the wrong nanny.
That being said, however, it would always be a good idea for you to be aware of what to look for in a nanny who would perfectly fit your needs. It would go a long way in helping you choose a nanny that would be ideal for your needs, and avoid the wrong ones.
Identifying Your Needs
While it may seem that the needs are rather general and not very subjective, it ends up being otherwise more often than not. This is because every parent thinks differently, and may even have different needs to take care of.
For instance, some may prefer a nanny who’s very matured and experienced than someone young who’s just starting out as a nanny. Similarly, some parents may even want their child’s nanny to be qualified enough – or, in other words – have a degree in childcare education.
In such cases, your budget tends to be an important factor as well, though, so keep that in mind too. Furthermore, you may even want to be very clear with respect to the role you want the nanny to play. Do you want her to be more of a parenting partner, or simple someone who takes care of tasks such as feeding and bathing?
This is something you would be required to know about even while finding a nanny through an agency and is hence an absolute must.
Well, as mentioned earlier, if you’re looking to take on this rather highly challenging task yourself, you indeed have a lot of research to do. You can get the word out by reaching out to your friends and family, as well as look forward to some help from babysitting and nanny communities.
Our take on the matter is a little different, though. We think that as it’s such a crucial decision, you can’t afford to compromise on it one bit. But given that you may lack the required experience and expertise, you just may not be able to eliminate the risk of ending up hiring a nanny that’s just not good enough for your needs.
Instead, you may simply want to leave the job to someone like us, who have an extensive amount of experience in finding the right nannies for parents with different needs. We can serve you better than yourself, without having to settle for anything less than perfection when it comes to important factors such as your child’ safety.
A nanny with a degree doesn’t necessarily mean that they will turn out to be perfect – and vice versa! Hence, you would want to interview them just as thoroughly, regardless of their qualification.
The first thing you may want to do is asking the applicant questions about their experience as a nanny, or providing any kind of childcare services. Similarly, it’s also important to check their driving record, background, as well as ask about their personal interests.
It would be ideal to include your child while meeting the applicant(s) as well, as it would allow you to get an idea of how they get along.
Checking the applicants’ reference is another important step of the process, even if they are from an agency. If the agency has already reached out to their references for their feedback, you may still want to call them yourself and ask more detailed questions.
Asking about their strengths and weaknesses may give you a pretty clear idea of what you can expect from them.
A Trial Run
There’s probably no better way to find out whether the nanny is right for your child than doing a trial run. You need to pay for their time, of course, but it will allow you to observe how they interact with your child.
