I’ll be hiring a nanny for the first time in a new city for my two kids – 5yo & 1 yo in Jan due to childcare centre shortage. What are some tips, dos’ & don’ts in dealing with the nanny? What is expected of a nanny? What is a fair expectation of her and pay per hour (she has some experience with the older children but not with a 1yo. Also when the school start in Feb, she’ll look after only the 1yo). I have absolutely no idea so any helpful info and advice is welcome! I have offered to work from home in the first few days so that I can introduce her to the 1yo over few days).
