Hi! My name is Ashley. I’m twenty-one years old and recently moved back to the central coast from the bay area! I grew up with two little brothers and worked as a teacher’s aid to infants and toddlers. I was in charge of four toddlers at a time, including feeding, changing, and supervision. Taking care of young kids comes easy to me. I’m great at thinking of games and crafts to do. I have open availability until school starts. I look forward to hearing from you!

I recently had a babygirl named Penelope in September 2017, & my sister had a baby July 2017, & my love for children has gone over the roof. I babysat my niece, Vivienne, for a few days out of the week once my sister got back to work a few weeks after having her. It is amazing to watch how fast they grow in such little time. I feel like I have had a great amount of time around infants & toddlers & I will have no problem taking care of yours. I also do have my license and a reliable vehicle. Thank you. 😊

I worked in two homes as a nanny. I was babysitter at first for one and it turned into more of a nanny position as time went by. The second family I worked for had three children ages 5, 9 and 15 that I was with for about 8 months. Besides my jobs as a nanny I have also worked in two schools and babysat a lot.

Santa Maria$20/hr  |  2 yrs experience
Hi! I'm LeLani and I love children. From the time I could walk my mother said if she every lost me all she had to do was look for the nearest baby and there I was! I have taken care of children since I was 12, starting as a mother's helper, then babysitting throughout junior high and high school. I moved in to a house and was a live-in nanny to two children where the mother ran a daycare with 16 kids under the age of 3 and was also her assistant for a year. I have two grown children of my own, a 26 year old boy and a 23 year old girl and of and on through their childhood worked at daycares and baby sat all my friend's children. I have been a nanny to five different children in the last 8 years and I can't wait to find some new children to care for. I am often told I am the 'baby whisperer' because I have never met a baby who didn't like me! I love to play and make sure each child feels loved, valued and important, so they grow up to be happy adults!

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