Santa Clara$30/hr  |  11 yrs experience
I’ve been a nanny for over 20 years in the Bay Area. A lot of families I worked with began in the infancy stages so I’m well versed in sleep training, potty training and developmental learning activities. I have experience working one on one with special needs children with the DIR Play based therapy. I’m extremely patient and have a very calming presence which children are drawn to. I’m also creative and encourage arts/ crafts or any creative outlet. Instilling the love of books and reading is also essential. Play and imagination are a huge part of development. I believe in consistency, structure, and communication with the family is vital. I base my caretaking style dependent on each child; I take time to really listen and pay attention to their individual needs. My number one priority is always the safety and well-being of the child. The best feedback would be from the families I’ve worked with. I’m also registered with trustline, an important factor when choosing a nanny.

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in Santa Clara, 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 Clara 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 Clara? 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 Clara?
  • 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.
