Nannies should do, at the very least, two full-day trials to make sure this job is for them. We advise never taking a job without a paid trial because it is too difficult to know what the family and job will be like without trying them.

Trials can be the most helpful time for nannies to see if the job is a match for them. During trials you can see:

  • What the job duties really entail
  • How the parents are as employers
  • How the children behave
