Being with children and being supportive of them when parents may be busy is a joy for me. Playing games with them and creating crafts is always enjoyable. I have 2 years of substitute teaching experience and over 3 years of working with Pre-k children. Often I have to take care of my niece, pictured in my profile picture with me, because of my older sibling being busy. Overall, I am a kid at heart who also knows when rules need to be set a followed. Thank you for considering me to be a baby sister for that special little person in your life..

I grew up helping to care for my younger sister. Once I was able to drive I started babysitting for family and friends. I am currently finishing up three years of working for the same family. I love them, but children grow up and don't need a nanny forever. I am very hard working and I feel very easy to work with. Working with children has always been a passion.

I am the mother of 2 wonderful girls, 22 and 20 and have 1 beautiful granddaughter age 16 months. I started working as a nanny in 1998. I provide a consistent, loving atmosphere with clearly set boundaries where the children can laugh and have fun and learn. I plan age appropriate activities around their interests and expose them to new experiences as well. I have taken children to their scheduled lessons, parks, museums, country club or pool, school, and misc. outings. As a nanny, I partner with the parent to help them achieve their goals for their children. As a mom, I understand how hard it is to leave your child and highly value the trust placed in me. The greatest compliment I get is not what a neat craft or activity I did; it is knowing they don't have to worry when I am with their kids. Other childcare experiences include being the oldest of 5 in my family, having a home daycare from 1994 to 1998, working in church nurseries, children's church, (My husband is a former youth pastor.), working as an aide in a public school, and last but not least, being the mother of 2 children. As a nanny I have performed various household tasks such as laundry, preparing meals, light cleaning and organization, along with running errands. I did overnight stays and stayed with the children while parents went on vacation or away for the weekend. I am willing to work with the family to help in any way possible, but the children have to come first.

I have babysat infants before, I mostly have experience in watching children who are the ages of 3-5. I did volunteer work on Monday nights at a church to help out with the 3-5 years old. I took one year of Early Childhood Education at Technology Campus in Grayslake. I taught Pre School in there. It was a lot of fun (: I believe children are just a bundle of joy! I am also CPR certified.

I enjoy working with children so much that I decided to make it my career. I graduated from Purdue University in May 2011 with a degree in Elementary Education. Since I have been out of school I have been a Nanny for two families one night a week with three children, ages 6 to 10. I also volunteer at a local Elementary school to help with Guided Reading, and a Fine Motor Skills Program. In addition to volunteering at the Elementary school, I also am a Junior Girl Scout Leader, and a Tiger Cub Scout leader. I have worked with children from the ages 5 to 12, for the last 7 years at a local Day Camp. At camp I am in charge of planning and implementing various age appropriate activities. I am comfortable with infants and toddlers also, because I am a Big Sister to three siblings all in Elementary School, and Aunt to an infant. I am certified in First Aid, CPR, and ADE through the American Red Cross. Thank you for your interest, and I hope to meet you and your children soon.

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in McHenry, 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.

McHenry 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 McHenry? 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 McHenry?
  • 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.
