Hi, I have been married for over nine years, my husband and I live in a townhouse in Algonquin. I don't have any children of my own. I love being with children, and I have worked with children of all ages for over fifteen years. I have a lot of experience and several references. Along with a number of past reviews and letters of recommendation. I love watching them grow and explore new things. It is such a joy to watch the world through a child's eyes. It teaches us to appreciate life better and to not take little things for granted. I am very fun loving and easy to get along with. I am honest and respectful and I believe in open communication. It's important for parents and I to work as a team in developing a routine and working together on the growth of the children. I love the outdoors, my family and I go camping quite often. I am very close to my family, they are very important to me. I have a very strong belief in family values. I am also CPR and first aid certified and I have training in water safety. My first day as a lifeguard I saved a little girl from drowning.

I was raised as the second-oldest child in a family of seven kids. As you can imagine, this provided many years of experience with kids. Aside from that, I started babysitting when I was 13 years old. Over the past 13 years, I've babysat for kids ranging from newborn to 15 years old. I babysat for various genders, ages, and sizes of families. Most of my babysitting jobs were frequent, but not frequent enough to be considered as "nanny" work. However, in 2003, I was a part-time nanny for 2 young children. And for the last year and a half I was a nanny for a 3-year-old and a 7-year-old. In all my years of experience I have had many duties including driving kids to various activities (sports, dance lessons, music class, picking them up from school, etc.), helping with homework, making meals, tidying up the house, changing diapers, potty training, giving baths, and enforcing nap or bedtime. In 2009 and 2010 I volunteered in a daycare center. I use a lot of the structure I learned there in my nanny jobs. For example, I keep a daily chart of the child's schedule to give to the parent at the end of the day. I also incorporate story time, music time, and learning time that is age-appropriate for the child.

I started babysitting for families on my street when I was 14 years old. I babysat all through high school. I also was part of the preschool program throughout my high school. I went on to go to college at Eastern Illinois University. There I received my degree in elementary education. I worked a variety of jobs, babysitting being one of them! I then would nanny full time when I would be home from college on breaks and summer. Once I graduated college I moved home and nannied full time while applying for teaching jobs. I then started subbing at a preschool. I was hired full time as the full day 3/4 year old room teacher. I worked full time at this school for a little over a year, including summers. I would nanny for my students or other families on the weekends or random date nights! I am now looking for a full time nanny position, 30-40 hours weekly. I have a long list of references available upon request. Along with a background check, resume, etc! Thank you for your consideration.

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in Algonquin, IL

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.

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