When a new nanny comes I ask the following questions
1. Experience is an important criterion or not?
Still, is experience so important? It all depends on the age of the child, if it's baby - of course, otherwise the nanny will not know what she will have to face and on which side to approach the child. If the child is older - from 3 years old, it is enough to love children, be able to find a common language with them, to interest, to play. Children very well feel falseness and if they are not sincere and inattentive to their needs, the child's reaction will be unambiguous. Simple observation of the first communication between a nanny and a child will tell a lot.
Is the medical education necessary for a nanny?
2.Necessary for medical education in a nanny - a controversial issue. Anyone who is more or less familiar with the Internet can watch a video on first aid to a child, read relevant literature or take courses. You can simply pay attention to this section, having discussed with the candidate for nannies, how she is going to behave "if". Answers will show how ready a person is to unforeseen situations. But it's important to discuss them before hiring! By the way, the presence of medical education does not guarantee that the nurse will be ready for them one hundred percent.
3. Bad habits
Lack of bad habits is not even worth commenting - they simply should not be all. The age of the nanny depends on the presence of one, two higher educations. But still, it is better to take a person who, in priority, does not have to earn money urgently, but someone who is really ready for this job. The Internet and talk shows have already debunked the myth of the professional nannies with the availability of recommendations. Papers, as always have power, but do not say anything about the personal qualities of a person. It should also be taken into account that the experience is good, but if the nanny is old, she will simply be hard and emotionally and physically cope with the child, no matter how much she was in her forehead.
