All Things Nannies and Babysitters

Summer's end means changing childcare needs for many of us, whether hiring a nanny or moving on from a current nanny is on the horizon. Whatever your situation, we have tons of information to guide you as you make the best choices for your family.

Hiring a Nanny?

The 2014 Park Slope Parents Guide to Hiring a Nanny [Beta] is a combination of best-practices, insights and honest expressions culled from years of experience by a diverse group of parents who have all been where you are now. It includes:

Step 1: WHAT to Expect

Step 2: WHERE to Look

Step 3: WHO to Pick

Step 4: HOW to Seal the Deal

Step 5: HOW to Make it Great

Need an after school nanny/babysitter? We asked you for ideas and experiences, and have put together the PSP Guide to Hiring an After School Sitter.

Park Slope Parents strongly recommends you have a work agreement in place. Get yours here.

Does Your Nanny Need a Job?

Be sure to review our "Helping Your Nanny Find A Job" info on the PSP Website.

Need to post about your nanny? Please see the updated PSP requirements including our required template for nanny recommendations! We have a dedicated nanny moderator so it can take 24-36 hours for your message to post.

Saying "Goodbye" to your nanny? See our tips to help with the transitions including severance pay, goodbye partings, and more.

We have a section for nannies! Send your caregiver the PSP "Information For Nannies" guide with tips and advice to help them secure their next job.

Creating a Nanny Share?

We have updated The PSP Guide to a Successful Nanny Share to include tips from what works (and what doesn't) to salary information, scheduling advice and more.
