How to
Find a Nanny in Boston

From asking friends and family for recommendations to scouring local message and job boards, finding a nanny in Boston can be overwhelming. Add the background and reference checks you need to do to find a quality nanny and the how-to-find a nanny search just went from overwhelming to daunting.

Find a Nanny vs. Find the Right Nanny

To find a nanny that’s right for your family, you need to figure out what you need—and that doesn’t just mean your schedule. How do you want your little one to be cared for and taught? And while it's hard to do right now, try to think beyond the newborn stage. Think about what you want in a nanny when your child goes from sitting to crawling (to running! It happens fast).

Look for early childhood experience

How long have you been caring for children? What age groups have you cared for? What certifications or education do you have?

Knowledge of developmental activities

How might you help my child learn? What activities would you do with a newborn? Infant? Toddler? How will you challenge my baby?

Knows the importance of exploring

How do you spend your days with kids? Do you typically socialize with other nannies in the area? What are your views on socialization at this age?
