Nanny coming tomorrow for interview - any tips?

We are looking at employing a nanny with her own child to look after ds on Mondays.

I have got her to answer a questionnaire which I plaigiarised from Eleusis' (I think) questions; we have also discussed hours, rate of pay, what she would need for her dd and sleeping arrangements; we haven't yet discussed holiday or bank holidays (which will be important since half of them are always on a Monday). I can't think of anything else, but don't want to have nothing to say tomorrow when she pitches up. Anything I've missed out or could usefully ask about?

Thanks! Had thought of the conflict point and forgotten it again. VERY good point about cover...

Sorry I missed this. How did it go?

Very well! Only forgot to ask whether she has a contract we can use or whether I need to get one. Found one on the internet, but it's not very "user-friendly" to my mind. Anyway, she's going to come for a trial on 4 June. Seems really nice!

there is a good basic contract on nannyjob if you need one to just fill in the gaps!

Thanks for that! Can't access it from work, but will try to do so from home.
