Tiffany H. - Seeking Work in El Dorado

El Dorado$20/hr  |  < 1 yr experience
I started babysitting probably when I was going into my freshman year of high school (1998). I babysat for that family for a couple of summers before they moved away. I think their boys were around 5 and 7 when I started for them. The summer of my junior year of high school, I babysat for a family with three children. I can't remember the ages. The summer after my senior year of high school, I babysat for another family with three boys. Again, I can't remember the ages of the boys at the time, but I would like to say that they ranged from 3 to 9. Following that summer, I became a nanny/babysitter for a family with two children. The youngest was only three months when I started working for them, and the oldest had just turned three. I worked for them for two years. I worked from 7:30 to 5:30 everyday, as these were the hours the parents worked. I still babysit for them often, and am their only trusted babysitter. After working for them, I went on to work for the daycare in my church, taking care of up to 12 children a day. These children were three years of age. I would plan lessons for us to do throughout the day, take care of the common children needs, lay the children down for nap, wake them up, provide snacks, and get them ready to go home at the end of the day. I worked there for about a year and a half before I left to become a full-time nanny for a family with a child who has special needs. I worked with this family for a year before it became totally overwhelming. The majority of the time, I would stay all day and overnight by myself with him, and it became too straining. My duties with him were to get him up and dressed for school each morning, take him to therapy three days a week, provide meals (often all three) each day, provide learning activities with him, and just basically love him. I LOVED working with him. They did have another baby while I worked for them. Other than all that child care, I occasionally babysit for families on weekends as needed. I previously worked in the nursery at my former church as a Sunday school teacher for infants and toddlers for 8 years.
  

Have you considered a nanny share?

A nanny share is when one nanny cares for children from two different families. Each family saves significantly on child care expenses, while the nanny enjoys higher pay than the typical full-time position.

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in El Dorado, AR

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.

El Dorado 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 El Dorado? 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 El Dorado?
  • Do you have a driver’s license in AR? 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.
