Morningside Nannies was far more professional and focused than the other agencies. They listened to my request and responded promptly. I feel very fortunate to have such superb childcare and appreciate the luxury of returning to work with-out worry.

What is Childcare Work Experience?

What is considered recent childcare work experience?

Many individuals believe that caring for their own child or providing informal care for family in friends is considered experience enough to be qualified to work as a nanny.

While the experience gained from providing care for family and friends or on a volunteer basis contributes to your experience as a child care provider, we require our applicants to have experience working in formal child care positions.

When working in a formal childcare position, caregivers:

  • Work under the guidance of their employers with regards to standards and practice of care
  • Demonstrate consistency over a period of time with regards to the quality of care provided
  • Communicate regularly with parents and/or employers information about the children in their care
  • Have a track record of being punctual, responsible, and reliable for the duration of employment
  • Are familiar with the responsibilities and practices of being an employee in a childcare setting
  • Demonstrate they are able to care for children for long periods of time (and still love doing so!)
  • Have a work history that can be verified
  • Have references from individuals whose relationship is not a personal one.

Formal child care positions include working as a daycare provider, teacher, nanny, camp counselor, tutor, coach, or other position where you have held a job working with children. Positions like babysitting and Sunday church nursery volunteer are supplemental to the positions listed above. We consider recent child care experience to have occurred within the last 2-3 years, though this is determined at the discretion of the nanny coordinator. We also must be able to verify your work experience through reference checking or employment verification.

As a new mom I was nervous about hiring a nanny, but now I couldn’t be more pleased. I’ve sung your praises to everyone I know.
