I have been around children of all ages since my childhood. I am the oldest of 6 and started babysitting when I was 10 years old. During my junior and senior year of high school I worked as an aide in a daycare center and took several classes from the community college in early childhood development. Then in 2001 I worked as a nanny for a family of three with children ages 9,6, and 1 in Naperville, IL for 6 months. The reason for the short duration is that the mother was transferred to Britain for work and they wanted a local nanny. Because of the time that has past I have been unable to keep in touch with this family. But I would like to say that we got along really well and I had a great relationship with the children. It was just too far for me to go at that time in my life. I then continued my collegiate studies in early childhood development and worked in a center for childhood development as a preschool teacher for 1.5 years. I have also cared for my brother's children, now 8, 6, 3 and 1 year old, since they were babies. I have watched them daily, nightly, and even weekly so the parents could get away or go on vacation. I am a very responsible person and have a lot of patience and love when it comes to children. I can multi-task with housekeeping duties while keeping the children engaged in whatever activity they are or need to be in at the time. I love watching children discover new things and to be engaged with them while they are experiencing new things. I believe children learn the best through play and enjoy creating activities inside and out whether we are at the park or going for a walk or bike ride. I believe that children need a structured or consistent environment with educational based activities through play like I mentioned before. Caring for children comes natural to me and I truly enjoy the time and experiences I've had working with children.

Diana W.

Diana started nannying for us when my children were 2 and 4. They are now 11 and 13 and we are still very close with Diana. She’s like family to us which shows how much we value her. She did a wonderful job with my kids. She took them to all the parks, the museum, library, etc. They were her priority. She also helped with meals and tidying. She will forever be a special part of our family. - Heather

We look for consistency and fun first and foremost in a nanny, and that is Diana all around! Our kiddos never want us to pick them up when they’re with her, and she’s always willing to go the extra mile with things like cleaning, cooking, and arts and crafts! - Sonja

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in Sterling, AK

Before beginning the search for a nanny, it’s important to understand what you’re looking for and if a nanny is the right choice for your child care needs. In hiring a nanny, first, you should think through what responsibilities you expect your nanny to handle. With that information, you can create a profile so that nannies can reach out to you. The boundaries for nannies duties vary from family to family. In general, a nanny is responsible for making sure your 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 communicate these expectations with your nanny before hiring them. Along with the different duties that you ask for, experience and location can impact how much you should pay your nanny.

Sterling Nanny Interviews

Once you start connecting with prospective nannies, the next step is a nanny interview. To make things a bit easier, here’s a list of some nanny interview questions to consider asking:

  • Do you have experience being a nanny?
  • How do you handle tantrums? Can you share an experience disciplining children?
  • What sort of household tasks are you open to doing?
  • Are you open to a live in arrangement in Sterling? Do you have experience being a live in nanny?
  • Are you open to being a nanny in a nanny share?
  • Do you have any references?
  • Are you trained in First Aid or CPR in Sterling?
  • Do you have a driver’s license in AK? Do you own a car?
  • What salary are you seeking? Are you open to being paid through direct-deposit, pay stubs?
  • What are your expectations around over-time pay and vacation time?

During the hiring process, it’s essential to ask for references, and by asking their references questions you gain a better understanding of they will fit in your family. As you get closer to hiring a nanny, be sure to run a background check to ensure your kids are in good hands. When evaluating a prospective nanny, it’s essential to make sure you’re setting the foundation for a good relationship with your nanny. You can do this by being clear about your expectations around nanny responsibilities and compensation, and of course, by being friendly and welcoming! And of course, as you learn how to hire a nanny, Nanny Lane's nanny services are here to help you along the way.
