Your children are your most precious and irreplaceable assets. Not just any person could take care of them in the manner they deserve. For this reason, you should strongly consider holding out for a nanny with extensive experience. They are more likely to have the qualities you are seeking, here is why.
Finding a person to help regularly care for your children is quite an undertaking. The skills involved in parenting could – and do – fill several large books. While a nanny will not be “raising” your children in the sense that an actual parent does, they still have a tremendous amount of responsibilities to cover.
Since many of the skills expected of nannies are difficult to quantify and mostly come down to “that special something,” describing them in concrete terms can feel impossible. When people have a great experience with their nannies, they often say that something “just clicked” and everyone was happy with the situation.
