A little bit about me…

I am an 18 year old high school graduate who is planning on attending Northern Illinois University in the fall. I have a big family with many different ages, so I am very familiar with children. I am very organized, patient, helpful, and kind. I work hard in everything I do. I was captain of a competitive dance team at my high school, so I am a leader. I earned a volunteer silver cord at graduation for volunteering many hours, so I love to give back to others. I am also a very studious person. I work hard in all of my classes. I am looking for a way to make money before I go to college, and I would be happy to work for anybody that is willing to hire me!

A little bit about me…

Hello! I am 21 years old, I began babysitting when I was 14 and ever since working with children has been my passion! I have been a nanny for three families (children ages 1-9). I have over 100 hours of volunteer work as a student teacher in my church’s child care center (ages newborn-10). I also spent three years pursuing a bachelors degree in elementary education. My courses included child development, child care, early education, and special education. Unfortunately, I have to take some time off of school to save up for student loans. I felt there was no better way to do that then to continue my passion for children! I currently have open availability. I am experienced and comfortable with all house keeping, meal preparation, transportation, pets, and any care needed at any time of the day! I look forward to hearing from you!

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in DeKalb, 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.

DeKalb 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 DeKalb? 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 DeKalb?
  • 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.
