If you know someone locally who has a nanny already and she can potentially add another child then this could be an option. If she already has sole charge of two or more children then this may not be possible.
A nanny agency will be the most reliable option and will provide peace of mind that the candidate has all checks in place. An agency like Snuggles Childcare will meet candidates in person for face-to-face interviews and run thorough background checks. At snuggles Childcare we have a 6 step vetting process in place that ensures our nannies are verified. Using an agency will make your life a lot easier, particularly if you don’t have much time on your hands. Sifting through countless online profiles and then running your own background checks is very time-intensive. An agency will offer support during the employment process, which can get complicated when bringing a nanny on board. Employment contracts, tax and insurance are all important factors in the employment of your new nanny.
