A little bit about me…

I am a first-year college student, currently attending College of DuPage and plan to go on to Benedictine University. I strive to keep an optimistic disposition and express gratitude in all things I do. Some of my strengths include adapting well to changing needs, taking on a leadership role, independence, creativity, and always being open to help others. In the past, I've worked in the restaurant business, which taught me how to take on responsibility, patience, respect, and communication. I have also worked as a caregiver and housekeeper for multiple families, having experience with ages ranging from 3-14 years old. I've also taken care of pets for families, as well. As a caregiver, I can provide transportation, prepare meals, create fun activities and entertainment, and take on a leadership role. I enjoy working with kids, as I grew up volunteering with my mom teaching Sunday school at my church.

A little bit about us…

My husband is potentially getting offered a job where he will need to travel some of the month so I am looking for some help, probably starting in Feb/March ish. Maybe sooner for one day a week depending on when job would start. We have a little girl who is one year old and a baby boy on the way due in April.

Ideally we would like Monday and Tuesday and/or Wednesday as those would be the days my husband would likely travel. Probably 4-6 hours on the days working (about 10-15 hours a week) I would also be home as well most of the time. I am mostly looking for some extra hands especially during the postpartum period and then some time where I can take care of myself (go workout, have a shower, take a nap). We would like someone to help with the kids, light house work (tidying up, prepping meals, kids laundry maybe?), educational activities with the toddler, and someone who is able to help care for a newborn. We also have two dogs so some pet care as well (letting them out if needed, refilling food/water if you see they are out). Right now no expectations for driving, but could change depending on if nanny would like to take one of the kids out of the house for something fun.

Overall, looking for a way to have more of a "village" in raising my babies as it is rough out there!

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in Darien, 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.

Darien 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 Darien? 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 Darien?
  • 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.

Daycare vs. Hiring a Nanny

Choosing between putting your child in daycare and hiring a nanny can be a tough decision. While nannies are often more expensive, they provide individualized attention and flexibility. Daycares, on the other hand, prioritize socialization. Our Nanny vs Daycare guide can help you determine what's best for your family.
