A little bit about me…

Hello! Mellie Poppins at your service! I have been a nanny for 9 years now but before that I worked as a counselor at a therapeutic school for children with multiple needs using my degree in psychology (focusing on children). I made the decision to change careers 9 years ago and I only wish I made the decision sooner! This is my passion. Some say it is my calling.  I thrive on routine and structure and love to incorporate  art, music, nature and LOTS of reading into the day. I'm very creative, love to cook, adore animals and will leave you feeling comfortable enough to leave your prized possession(s) in my care! I am CPR and first aid certified, vaccinated,  have my own transportation,  non smoker.
Please reach out to discuss your childcare needs!

"Mellie is a great nanny, anyone would be lucky to have her! Mel has worked for us every Friday (and other days when needed) for 2 years now. She treats our 4 children (3/4 have ADHD) like her own. She always has a plan for the day, really does read a ton to them daily, and does pre-planned crafts and activities. We love her focus on the kids with eating healthy, reading, and being outside in particular. Mel happily adheres to our rule about no technology (iPads/TV) during the week. She even has gone to our kids sporting events to support them! They love her and look forward to a “Ms. Mellie Friday”. Mel is kind, respectful, reliable, and cares deeply for her kids. I never worry when I leave them with her, and that, to me, is one of the most valuable thing a parent can ask for in a childcare provider."

A little bit about me…

I am a college student studying to become a surgical tech. I just moved from California in September 2018 for school in a less expensive area. I also moved to seek job opportunities and I got lucky enough to find multiple job offers but personally, I prefer babysitting because it gives me more time to do my homework and go to the gym. I have been babysitting since I was around 10 years old, I'd help my cousins and aunts with the babies because I love spending time with kids.

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in Elgin, 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.

Elgin 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 Elgin? 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 Elgin?
  • 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.
