Nanny Questions about the Family's Prior Nanny Relationships

Contributed by Dorothy Popovich

Has the family you are interviewing with had nannies before? These questions are a wonderful way to gauge their experiences, their frame of reference, and give you an idea of what the family is expecting AND hoping to avoid.

  • How many nannies have you had? How long did you have each nanny?
  • What were those relationships like?
  • Did you have any problems with your last nannies? Like what? (Tell them you want to know, so you know what not to do.)
  • What did you like about those nanny relationships?
  • What will you do differently (if anything) in your next nanny arrangement?

This list is a work in progress. Any suggestions are appreciated, please send them to me via this website.
