Where to Find a Nanny

You'll know when it's time to hire a nanny. When you've gone through two or three babysitters who can't be relied on to work when you need them, or when you've exhausted your mother or mother-in-law with babysitting work, it's time to find a better solution. There are a few different ways of finding a nanny including the following:

  • Classifieds. Check the local newspaper for qualified nannies looking for work.
  • Seek input from friends and neighbors. If they have a nanny, they can probably give you the name and phone number of the agency where they discovered their nanny, or other tips on finding a nanny that you hadn't thought of.
  • Nanny placement agencies. Oftentimes you can register as a member online which enables you to search their database of appropriate nannies.
  • Place an ad for a summer nanny on a college, university, or high school bulletin board.

Finding a nanny isn't hard, the trick is finding an appropriate, qualified, professional nanny. That's not to say a student isn't going to be a dedicated nanny for you, but the person you hire is going to be watching over your kids, so you want to make sure they know what they're doing and can handle any emergencies that might come up.
