A little bit about me…

I've been caring for children of all ages in childcare centers and as a nanny for over 30 years. I also have 4 grown sons of my own including twins. I absolutely love children. I am a caring, patient, and attentive nanny who enjoys playing, teaching and being on the go. I have extensive knowledge of child development and age appropriate activities that help a child grow and develop. I focus on nurturing the whole child including social, emotional, physical, and cognitive abilities. I love teaching babies and toddlers sign language to help them communicate their needs. I work hard to foster a sense of responsibility, manners, and respect and lead by example. I consider myself to be very reliable and dedicated. As a mom myself, I understand the desire to have someone care for your children as if they were their own. That is what I aim to provide. Every day will include reading, music, playing, snuggling, learning, being silly, being creative and getting outside weather permitting.

"Trish has been with us since my daughter was four months old- and who is now seven and she is literally our only babysitter we trust. She has been part of our family since the moment she walked in our house. Trish is absolutely amazing and is well knowledge of all ages- from newborn to grade school children! Her passion and dedication is unmatched and she’s extremely reliable. Don’t be surprised if your toddler already knows all of his/her colors and states after a few visits with Trish! Trish is the best. You won’t find anyone better."

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in Connecticut

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.

Connecticut 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 Connecticut? 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 Connecticut?
  • Do you have a Connecticut driver’s license? 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.
