  • Ask for references, specific experience with that age group, siblings, what they were paid at their last job, cpr/first aid certified, driving record if they are driving the kids around, cooking ability, are they going to clean up after the kids when they make messages, ask if they are willing to do a background check (even if u dont plan on doing it).

    Call the references.... ask about them, if they were fired, if they did anything strange, how they were, are they interactive with children.

    Also, write out feeding schedule and go over it with nanny
