I have retired as a dental hygienist after practicing for 33 years. I dearly loved my profession, but at some point I realized it was time for a change. I raised my daughter, who is now 25 and graduated from NIU, and she has turned into a lovely young woman (which, of course, I take some credit for)!! My point being, I love children and am very good with them. I've always found they seem to like me and respond to my personality. I believe children respond to love and respect--respect for them, not bossiness and orders. I have had the good fortune to work as a nanny for two great families. The first was in St. Charles; mom was a surgeon and dad worked out of the home. Their two boys were the loves of my life, but their Grandmother came to live with them so I was no longer needed. It broke my heart to say good-bye to the boys. On a brighter note, I found my second family in Batavia, about a 5 minute drive from my home! They have three boys, ages 3, 5, & 7 whom I adore. We hop in the car almost every day and go to the pool, parks, feed the ducks...we went to Funway the other day and went bowling. We have a lot of fun together, but this too, is coming to a close. Their mother is going to be working part time at home and has cultivated her own business to the point that she will be able to spend time at home with the boys. I'm very proud of her, but again, it will be heart-wrenching. My last day will be August 28, but I can start a new position at any time since she will have someone to cover for me if I find something sooner. My third family had a 6 yr. old boy and an 8 wk boy and they were great, but again, grandma lost her job at the hospital, so moved in to take care of the kids, so I wasn't needed anymore. Again, we had a lot of fun swimming, playing sports, etc. My next family lived in Wasco...1 girl, 2 boys, ages 9,4, and 1. Great family, but after about 6 months, mom lost her job, so, again, I'm not needed. My St. Charles family had a 11 yr. old girl, and 9 yr. boy, who I would take to school and pick up, but during the day staying around to do laundry, take take of dogs, errands, dry cleaning, grocery shopping, etc. Summer was always fun, swimming, mini golf, ice cream..etc. Their mother took a job in CT, so I moved with the family out there to help with the transition, and have recently returned to Illinois and am looking for my new family! Ihave a background check on file, letters of recommendation, and welcome any questions you may have. I have a lot to offer a family_tons of love, intelligence, patience....and I'm a lot of fun. I have letters of recommendation upon request, so please don't hesitate to conta

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in Batavia, 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.

Batavia 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 Batavia? 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 Batavia?
  • 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.
