So DH and I are going to be looking for a nanny for DD 3.5 and DS almost 1, for 2 days a week.
We have NO clue where to start. Even once we have someone, we have no idea what we can expect from a nanny.
Eg do they have their own car with child seats in it or do you leave them your own car or do they just stay at home with the kids and walk them.
Do they make lunches and snacks etc or do we have to have that done already?
Also do we get any rebates like the CCR or is that only for child care centres and family day care?
Are agencies better or an ad in the paper? How much can we expect to pay? A per day / per hour fee?
I'm thinking of going through an agency just in case the nanny is sick so there's a back up plan perhaps.
We really are just very clueless so any advice about what to do and how it all works would be much appreciated.
