A little bit about me…

I received my BA along with an educational endorsement enabling me to work with children on letter/number recognition, articulation, phonetics, reading, writing, school preparedness, and homework. Ideally, hoping to find a family to be a part of; do not want to be just an employee. With my education/experience, I truly have a lot to offer the right family. I am hoping for a long-term position (2-3 years, maybe longer)!

A little bit about me…

Hi! I'm Keira Thornton. I am 18 years old and I graduated this year. I have experience in helping families take care of their kids. Growing up I took care of my younger cousins, and fully raised my nephew Jax. I taught him how to walk, run and talk. I am an extremely patient and empathetic person when it comes to children and animals. I have been in many clubs growing up taking care of kids who are disabled. I am willing to help clean the house and clean up after pets of any kind. I am more of an afternoon person ( 2-8 pm ) for an example. I currently do not work any jobs at the minute, but I use to work in retail for a few months. I do not have a drivers license, but I do have family who can take me to point A to point B.

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.

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.
