Finding child care can be an added stress that doesn't need to be if you follow my simple plan.
Nannies all come from the same pool - unless you are hiring an agency to recruit someone out of country they are closer then you think. The key being who is the BEST nanny for your family. Drawing candidates from varied sources helps build your nanny "talent pool".
Researching your nanny has never been easier. Learn where to look, and where to get a criminal history check for a nominal fee.
Check your nanny's references. Use a template and ask the same questions for all nanny candidates you are considering.
It's very hard for new teachers to find teaching jobs in Ontario, so target these educators for your child today!
Start with a "trial run" so there are no hard feelings if it doesn't work out.
Have an "end" date so you can re-negotiate at a later if you'd like - eg 1 year term, or 6 mos term.
