Madison B. - Seeking Work in Cedar Rapids
Madison B.

Madison was absolutely great with our six year old boy and eight year old girl. They did several activities around the community along with taking our kids to the pool and making lunch and snacks. She was very flexible with our schedule and communication was spot on. Our kids we are sad to see her leave to go off to college she would be a great fit for any family. - Ben

Katelyn R. - Seeking Work in Clarence
Katelyn R.

Katelyn was wonderful with my daughter who at the time was 6-7 years old! My daughter has ADHD and Katelyn was always so calm and patient with her! I've known Katelyn’s stepmom since I was a little girl, so it was extra special to have her come and babysit! Natalie always got really excited when Katelyn would come over! I definitely recommend her. - Halie

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in Iowa

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.

Iowa 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 Iowa? 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 Iowa?
  • Do you have a Iowa 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.
