I love working with kids because I know I can make a difference in their lives, just by showing them love and compassion. I am 16 years old, and looking for a part time nannying position, on weekends during the school year, and weekdays and weekends during the summer. I am CPR certified, and excellent in a crisis. I love children, and it is one of my personal philosophies that every child has good in them. I am an excellent cook, and will be willing to cool meals for children. Overall, I'm very mature for my age, and would absolutely love to work with your children!

I worked in the nursery at Lutheran Church of Hope in West Des Moines for almost 4 years. In the nursery I cared for infants up to about 4-year-olds. I also helped with and created stories, lessons, and crafts. I have been babysitting since I was 13. I have had CPR training. I most recently watched two boys (ages 7 and 9) as a summer nanny. My responsibilities included playing with the boys, driving them and picking them up from camps, fixing them meals, etc.

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in West Des Moines, IA

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.

West Des Moines 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 West Des Moines? 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?

  • Do you have a driver’s license in IA? 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.
