Hi! I’m Rayana, I’m 20 years old and I’m from Downers Grove. I’ve been babysitting since I was 12 years old. I work almost full time at Walgreens but I am looking for a new job. Hopefully I can find one here. I’m looking forward to hearing from you!

I am responsible, reliable, caring, and compassionate, with excellent childcare skills and knowledge. Throughout my ten years of childcare I have obtained extensive experience and knowledge that has developed my passion for child rearing. I love everything about raising children; caring and teaching them is something that I enjoy and feel compelled to do. I feel that my vast experience with childcare and my caring personalities separates myself from others. Caring for children is more than just a job for me; it is doing something I love, while seeking new opportunities to broaden my vast experiences with child rearing.

I first worked as a nanny for four year old quadruplets for a year during high school. I would help after school-cook, clean, play with the kids, and do laundry. I left that job to go away to school. I then was a nanny for a family for two years with three children 4 and under. I would take the children places, play, cook, clean, and help educate the kids. I left that job to take more classes in college and focus on my degree. I then was a nanny for a family with two boys. I started when the oldest was 9 months and left when the second child was a year and a half. I was there for a year and a half. I would play with the children, read, take them places, put them to bed, take them to doctors appointments, cook, and clean. The family I worked for let me go to get an Au Pair to save money, but recently hired me back for a three month period temporarily. They now have three children ages 15 months to 4 years. I also have babysat for 13 years. I am the oldest of four children.

I have 20 years experience in childcare, specializing in twins. I am very hands-on, interactive, loving with a firm belief in structure, consistency and open communication. I value the educational aspect of childcare as well as the playfulness. I have found my experience as a nanny to be a very gratifying, positive and rewarding one.

I have had more than 10 years of experience with children of all ages including newborns, which I have references for upon request. I have been with a family for 10 years and have watched their children of ages newborn, 3 years, and 5 years grow up. This family has referred me to an array of others that I babysat and nanny-ed for, as well. Most families included multiples, a family with twins, pets and multicultural children so I have a wide variety of expertise when it comes to this field. In addition to my past experience, I have taken care of and am very close to my now 8 year old brother since birth. I am very family-oriented and know how important it is for a child to receive that love and care when the parents are unavailable.

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in Downers Grove, 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.

Downers Grove 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 Downers Grove? 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 Downers Grove?
  • 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.
