HI there! I graduated with a Bachelor's in Criminal Justice and
a minor in Psychology from Xavier University in Cincinnati, OH. I recently spent a year working on a Forensic Team at a Behavioral Health nonprofit organization. I moved back to Illinois to (potentially) begin the process of getting my Master's degree. I am hardworking, dedicated, and reliable. I have a 4 year old nephew that spent the first two years of his life growing up at our family home. I assisted with the late nights, diaper changing, feeding, bathing... you name it.

Hi! My name is Ana Luisa Martinez, I am from Caracas Venezuela, I am 18 years old. I am bilingual and my first language is Spanish, but my second language is English. When I see myself as a nanny I wonder what would I teach the kids and that is when everything comes into my mind. As a kid, I used to do many sports, including swimming, gymnastics, dance, ballet, yoga, karate, volleyball, and tennis. As I came to the age of 9 I stopped practicing many of those sports and joined the horseback riding team at the day club back home. As for my experience with kids, I love helping them learn how to read, write, and play games. I have always been passionate about spending time with kids and helping them learn and achieve every goal they want. I have worked as a nanny many times for family friends since I was 15 and since I loved spending time with kids I also volunteered in several foundations to help kids learn how to interact with others, how to play games, and how to read and write.

I have been baby-sitting for a little over eight years now, and I think it is the best job I could have. I have experience working with children of all ages and love each one just as much. Throughout the past three years, I have the most experience working with grade school children and "tweens." I have previous experience with teenagers as well. I am comfortable driving children to their activities if need be. I have spent a lot of time tutoring middle-school students and I feel that I can adapt well to any given situation.

I am currently a sophomore in college and I have had several babysitting jobs with different families over the past 5 years. I have worked with infants all the way up to middle schoolers. I am very good with kids! Personally, I have 3 younger step siblings, ages 4, 6, and 12 in addition to a brand new baby brother who just turned 1! Throughout high school I tutored a middle school boy in math. Additionally, I have had much experience volunteering with school children through the American Red Cross. I am a very responsible and reliable person in my every day life and especially when watching children.

Mya is very patient with my child. My child has ADHD and Mya is very consistent with him and helps him stay on track. She is also very good about helping him with his homework and completing tasks. - Katie

Kate S.

Kate was so great with my daughter. She sang songs with her, took her on walks, played with her and read her books. My daughter always asked about Kate and always sang the songs she would sing together. Still to this day my daughter asks about Kate. Due to me starting a new job I decided to place my daughter in a daycare. But she adores Miss Kate! - Randi

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in Lake Forest, 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.

Lake Forest 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 Lake Forest? 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 Lake Forest?
  • 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.
