The Wagner Family
O'Fallon$15/hr  |  2 kids
Hello! We have two daughters, Gwen, a spunky 2.5 year old girl with a big heart and Isabella, a strong and sweet infant. We are seeking full time care M-F for about 45-50 hours / week. Hours will vary (ranging from 7 to 5:30 depending on my husband and my meeting schedule). Both of us will work from home but will be sure to stay out of the way (and our two year old has been trained not to interrupt us while we are at work even when at home).

We are looking for someone who...
- loves to read with kids
- enjoys music and playing music with kids
- has experience with infants and toddlers
- can create a structured (but flexible!) environment especially around mealtimes
- is willing to play with and entertain children with minimal/no screen time
- is willing to partner with us to reach both girls' development milestones (eg, potty training, tummy time, etc )
- would be willing to drop off / pick up from preschool (when the time comes)
- will do light laundry (children's only) and cleanup (empty/fill dishwasher, pick up toys and books after playing, etc.)
- is open to doing crafts, experiments, and pre approved play dates (when covid allows)
- will share pictures, updates and has an open communication style with us
- will show great care and love for our girls, and is willing to teach them new things/practice developmentally appropriate skills (eg, shapes, colors, words, opposites, etc.)

Types of Nanny Jobs and Nanny Responsibilities in Illinois

Before you start looking for a nanny job, it's essential to learn about the different types of nannies and how they compare to each other so that you make sure you’re looking for the right opportunities.

The different types of nanny jobs have different nanny responsibilities. The boundaries for nannies duties vary from family to family. However, in general, a nanny is responsible for making sure the children's needs are met, including things like ensuring they have opportunities to play and be active. When tasks go beyond child care, for example, housekeeping or meal preparation, it’s good practice to make sure your expectations are aligned with the family.

There are temporary nanny jobs, even seasonal nanny jobs like summer nanny jobs. Beyond seasonal and temporary nanny positions, there are differences between full-time and part-time nanny jobs. The primary difference being the number of hours you spend at your nanny job every week. For full-time nannies, there are options for live in nanny positions and live-out positions in Illinois. Live-out positions are more common, but each family has their own set of needs that require different types of care, and live in nanny positions can be exactly what some families want. If you're looking to explore live in nanny positions , it's even more important to create a shared set of expectations around hours, responsibilities, and what is expected of you when you're not on the clock.

How to Interview for a Nanny Job in Illinois

Once you start connecting with prospective employers, the next step is a nanny job interview. Here is a list of some nanny interview questions to prepare for:

  • What do you think children like best about you?
  • What kind of activities will you do with children this age?
  • How do you handle problems that arise behaviorally and emotionally with kids this age?

Beyond answering questions, families will want you to have your nanny references ready and ask any questions to show initiative. The nanny job interview is an excellent opportunity to get aligned on the nanny job expectations. By doing this, you can get off on the right foot with your future employer.
