Finding a Nanny - Types of Nannies

By Hilary Basile

Nannies can be classified into three basic types of people. Consider where your preferences are in these basic types:

  • Younger: Nannies in this group are often single, young and looking to work as a nanny for the next couple of years, perhaps to pay for college or future training. Some may be on break from work or school, while others may want to serve as a nanny part-time. Benefits associated with this type of nanny is that they are more energetic, eager, active and often open to working with all types of people.

  • Older and Experienced. Nannies in this group are generally older and more experienced in raising children. Some have raised their own children and wish to help others with their children. In this instance, there are countless differences in the education, skills and background of the individuals.

  • Experts. Nannies in this group are people that consider themselves professionals, experts and even child care specialists. This is someone looking for a full-time career as a nanny. Generally, they have completed an educational program, may have an early childhood education, an elementary education degree, or a training certificate. Some will have years of experience working as a nanny, while others are just starting out.

How do you select a nanny? Determine which type of nanny appeals to you. Some considerations may be their education, experience, long-term dedication and energy. Consider interviewing prospective nannies from each classification. Each offers something unique that may fit with what you are looking for in a nanny.
