Carolyn Simon
Chicago$18/hr  |  21 yrs experience
Hello there! 
My name is Carolyn Simon and I am a 22-year-old Chicago native with a B.A. in Psychology and Counseling and am currently enrolled in graduate school for a M.A. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at night. I have over eleven years of childcare experience as a nanny, babysitter, mother’s helper, older sister, cousin, and more. One of my primary mottos as a caregiver is to give parents more time to be with their children and less time cleaning, cooking, running errands, or doing housework. I’m incredibly organized, detail-oriented, reliable, and happy to cook & help with homework. I have tended to children of all ages including newborns, toddlers, children with Down Syndrome and Autism, and teenagers. I am looking forward to speaking with you!

I enjoy the outdoors, reading, and painting. As a nanny I focus on physical activities, reading, singing, dancing, and age appropriate projects. I would love the opportunity to get to know you and your family!

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in Illinois

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.

Illinois 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 Illinois? 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 Illinois?
  • Do you have a Illinois 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.
