After meeting with a nanny, if you are considering hiring them on an interim basis, here are the steps Downeast Nanny Services  take:

1. Evaluate the Meeting: Reflect on your initial meeting with the nanny. Consider factors such as their qualifications, experience, demeanor, and compatibility with your family's needs and values.

2. Check References: Contact the nanny's references to gather more information about their previous work experience, reliability, and professionalism. This step will help Downeast Nanny Services verify the nanny's qualifications and suitability for the interim position.

3. Conduct Background Checks: We perform background checks, including criminal record checks and any other relevant screenings, to ensure the nanny has a clean record and can be trusted to care for your children.

4. Discuss Expectations: Have a detailed conversation with Downeast Nanny Services and the nanny about your expectations for the interim period. Clarify the start and end dates, working hours, responsibilities, and any specific requirements you may have.

5. Negotiate Compensation: Discuss and agree upon the compensation with Downeast Nanny Services for the interim period. Consider factors such as the nanny's experience, qualifications, and the responsibilities involved. Ensure that both parties are satisfied with the agreed-upon compensation.

6. Draft an Interim Agreement: Downeast Nanny Services creates a written agreement that outlines the terms and conditions of the interim arrangement. Include details such as the start and end dates, working hours, compensation, duties, and any other relevant provisions. This agreement will serve as a reference point and help avoid misunderstandings in the future.

7. Communicate with Downeast Nanny Services: If you are hiring the nanny through an agency, inform them about your decision to hire their nanny on an interim basis. Follow any necessary procedures or guidelines provided by the agency

8. Provide Orientation and Training: Once the interim arrangement is confirmed, provide the nanny with an orientation to familiarize them with your home, routines, and any specific instructions or guidelines. If necessary, provide training on specific tasks or requirements.

9. Maintain Communication: Throughout the interim period, maintain open and regular communication with the nanny. Address any concerns or issues promptly and provide feedback on their performance.

10. Evaluate Performance: Downeast Nanny Services continuously assess the nanny's performance during the interim period.
