Hi! My name is Savannah and even though I am younger than most nannies I am just as committed to making sure a child is safe and happy! I've always loved kids whether it was my little cousins, nieces, nephews, etc. Being young myself helps me connect with the children more while still having the experience of an older nanny. I am CPR certified and your child's care is always my first priority. I'm very available in summer hours and part time available during school years.

Jessica Ruiz
San Luis Obispo$15/hr  |  2 yrs experience
Hello! I'm Jessica and I moved to San Luis Obispo from New York 4 years ago for college. I graduated Cuesta college last fall and while going to school I was a frequent babysitter on and off for families in the area. My second year of college I was a live-in nanny for a family in the area as well, and would often take them to and from day care and work on house chores. This past summer, I lived in Los Angeles babysitting a 3 year old boy with autism and separately I babysat a newborn for a friend of my family.
I live in San Luis Obispo and I most recently worked at Lucys Coffee Co, but was laid off due to COVID-19.

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in San Luis Obispo, CA

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.

San Luis Obispo 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 San Luis Obispo? 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 San Luis Obispo?
  • Do you have a driver’s license in CA? 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.
