Hello! I am Cherity and I have loved working with children ever since I was a young girl. Coming from a big family and being on the oldest I got some of the joys of watching all the younger ones. I have 5 god children, which are all boys, I was also their Nanny until I relocated! Hoping I can also get more experience. Children bring a lot of joy into my life.

I'm young, fun, and energetic. I have no formal experience with being a nanny but I've been around kids all my life. Babysitting family kids as well as kids of the neighborhood. I'm tolerant and very patient and also a good cook. I would like to see this as a summer job to gain more experience with children because I will be attending college in the fall majoring in psychology. In hopes of being a mental psychologist for children. Shoot me a message and I'll be able to accommodate whatever your schedule may be.

I began babysitting while I, myself, was still a child, probably around ten years old. I have experience with children ages infant-12. While most of my babysitting experiences have occurred on an irregular, on-call, short-term basis, I have also been hired for daily childcare for the duration of 2-4 months. In graduate school, I functioned as the graduate assistant in the university's Child Development Laboratory, supervising 30 practicum students and around 15 children, ages 2-5. The job afforded me the opportunity to instruct and model developmentally appropriate practice with children for our undergraduate students.

I have been working with children my entire life. I am currently an Early Childhood Education major with a concentration in Special Education. I have been babysitting since I was able to stay home alone. I have worked with all different ages and really enjoy all of them! Recently this past summer I worked at an all girls camp in upstate New York. I lived in bunk with 8 girls and took care of their every needs. I was also an Arts and Crafts instructor. I really enjoy creating fun activities for the children to participate in. I hate sitting the children in front of the T.V. I believe that all children need to have fun and experience different things of life. My best friend is also the oldest of 7, 4 are under the age of 7 and I care for them all the time. I am constantly coming up with new behavior management techniques as well as new fun things for them to explore!

My two first jobs were in the childcare centers of two different gyms so i had children moving in and out of the gym-provided kids room which allowed me to have up to twelve children and three infants if i was working alone so i have experience with many children. Then i became a figure skating instructor for the university of illinois and tought the "tots" who where three and four years old. I have been a nanny for a single child family for the past two years. I was also a volunteer at a day camp in what they called the papoose room which consisted of about forty three and four year olds who, while at day camp, were administered swim lessons by myself and the other counsellors. I am now an early childhood and special education major at Eastern Illinois University.

I started babysitting when I was around 12 years old. When I graduated high school and was working in costumer service I decided that being a nanny would fit me better. So I started working for a family with three children. They were 5 months, 2 and3 when I started. After a year they had to let me go because their mother decided that she wanted to stay home with her children. After that I found a job that was only three days for two children ages 5 and 3. I then found another job taking care of two children that were 4 and 1. This job only lasted two weeks because after two weeks their mother lost her job. After that job I got another one taking care of a little girl that was 7 months when I started. This job lasted about 8 months and then I left to go away to school.

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in Charleston, 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.

Charleston 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 Charleston? 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 Charleston?
  • 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.
