    I can imagine you have to be really thorough when interviewing for a nanny especially a live in one. This is a great checklist and I’m sure someone in a similar position will really benefit from your advice and experience. #KCACOLS

    • Julie says

      Absolutely, it definitely takes thinking about a lot of things, because it is difficult to cover everything until you’ve experienced it. Even now I keep coming up with more topics. Thanks Tracey 🙂

    Thank you for this! The printable check list provides so many questions I wouldn’t have even thought of asking. Providing this information is so helpful, and hard to come by. Good job, mama!
    Thanks for linking up with #KCACOLS. Hope you will come back again next Sunday!

    This is such great advice for anyone looking for a nanny. I am glad that I have been financially able to stay home with my kids…thinking of them in someone else’s care stresses me out. I don’t even like leaving them with their father sometimes lol jk. Thanks so much for linking with #momsterslink…hope to see you this week!

    These are great questions, it’s so hard to know if you are choosing the right person, one that will spend many hours with your child, and watch over them. Shared, many parents need this!

  5. Kelly says

    This is really helpful for parents – a lot of times, when you’re talking to someone, you get sidetracked as you talk (or at least I do!). Having a list helps keep you on track and makes sure you remember the important questions. Thanks so much for making this a printable – very cool!

    • Julie says

      I agree, I really can get side-tracked and wish we’d had asked something but forgot to. Of course, even with a good list we may sometimes come up with other questions later.

  6. Brandyn says

    Great questions! I know how picky I am just finding a babysitter for short amounts of time, so I can imagine how stressful it can be to look for someone to watch your child for long stretches of time! This is sure to be helpful for those seeking this sort of arrangement!

    Thank you for sharing with us at #MommyMeetupMondays!

  7. Bread says

    This is really useful for people looking for a nanny. And some of it can be transferred to looking for a child minder too.

  8. Michelle says

    You did good here. So much to think about when leaving our children in someone else’s care. I like the print out. I was a nanny for five years and the relationship I had with the family will be with me forever.

    • Julie says

      Oh Michelle that’s awesome and I bet you did have a special relationship after 5 years. I would love to have you share your experience in a guest post, let me know if you’re interested 🙂

  9. MMT says

    This is a brilliant idea…It is such a huge decision it pays to be prepared in advance.
    Thanks for linking to #coolmumclub, I’m off to share!

  10. Samantha says

    It has to be so difficult to find someone to mesh with your family so well, especially when it’s a live-in nanny! These questions are so great, and I would not have thought of all of those on my own. You are so helpful!

    • Julie says

      Thanks Samantha! It helps to have the questions in advance because I don’t know about you, but I get flustered talking to new people heh. It definitely is difficult finding someone who fits right in with your family, but at least you can find someone you respect and who respects you and your space and just work from there to build a relationship.

  11. Erin @ Stay At Home Yogi says

    This is really helpful! Some of these questions I never would have thought of on my own, I love how thorough you are!

    • Julie says

      Thanks Patti! There’s just some general questions you have to get out of the way first before you really can start getting to know the applicant.

    • Julie says

      I know we had a list of topics when we interviewed, but we weren’t this organized either heh. Would you be interested in guest posting about your nanny experience? Thanks Jennifer!
