First you should determine which type of services you require like you need help for childcare, helping in cooking and cleaning also, before interviewing a nanny. You can determine when you want them to start the work. The following things are to be considered when you are going to hire a nanny.
Generally, each family has some specific needs and childcare requirements, first thing is you need to find out whether you require a full time or part time services of a nanny. You know that you have to pay more for the full time nanny. If nanny agrees to stay at your home then you need to provide accommodation to her in your home. And you have to determine their work schedule.
You can get some benefits with full time working nanny like longer working hours and the ability to provide complete child care.
Some families require a part time nanny. They may need help after school until bedtime if they have younger kids. For this, you should decide your required time to hire a nanny to provide child care. Generally, these part time nannies do not live in home. The cost of the part time nanny is lower than full time nanny.
All the nannies do not provide house work, only some of the nannies agree to do the house work apart from childcare. If you need help to do the house work first you have to speak with her about your needs.
You should have to find out about nanny’s background information because she is not only childcare provider and also she manages house hold.
So, you have to discuss with candidates your requirements and interests at the time of interview. You should mention standard duties, and you can set clear expectations for every one’s benefit.
