Britney Jimenez
Santa Barbara$12/hr  |  < 1 yr experience
Born and raised in Santa Barbara. I have been on and off attending school at SBCC to receive my AA's in administration of justice and child development. I have a full time job DT with flexible hours. I've watched kids for over nine years now, ranging from newborn to 16 years old. I've taken care of multiple kids at once, changing diapers, cooking food, coming up with fun activities, helping with school work, driving kids to and from school/outside activities. I love doing laundry, dishes, etc. Ive had a family of three girls that I cared for many years. Their parents travel so I would stay in home and take care of them for weekends at a time.
My mom ran a daycare center at our house when I was younger. I was always her little helper, changing diapers, making lunch, or putting all the younger kids down for naps. We did it for many years so this is where I get my love for kids from. I have many friends /family with newborns so I am always the first one they call if they need help:)

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in Santa Barbara, 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.

Santa Barbara 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 Santa Barbara? 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 Santa Barbara?
  • 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.
