I have been a camp counselor for the past 4 summers, was an elementary school aftercare instructor for 2 years, and have babysat and nannied throughout high school. I have worked with kids of all ages (infants-15 years old). I also have experience working with special needs children.

Hi! I am a UW-Madison college student studying Biomedical Engineering. I am home for the summer since my job working as a Lifeguard and Counselor at an overnight camp was canceled due to COVID-19. I worked at the camp last summer where I was responsible for children from the ages of 4-17. I've also babysat since I was in 6th grade and love children and pets.

I started babysitting for family friends and neighbors when I was 12 years old. While in High School I took all of the Child Development Courses and I worked at a Pre School all 4 years. After High School I babysat several times a year while I attended Cosmetology School. I decided to become a full time Nanny after I was done at Cosmetology School. I was debating whether or not I should go to college to become an elementary school teacher. I was a full time Nanny for 3 years and I worked for 2 different families daily. The first family that I worked for had one child. He was 18 months old. I watched him full time until he turned 5 years old. For the years I was his nanny we spent a lot of time doing learning activities, going on fun day trips to the zoo and other places he enjoyed. Once he was old enough to be in classes I took him a couple days a week to pre preschool classes at the park district and once he was in preschool I would drop him off and pick him up. During the hours he was at preschool I would run errands for his parents, clean the house and create fun projects for us to do during his free time. The second family that I worked for was for 2 junior high children. I would start my day working for them at 3pm when I would pick them up from school. I would bring drop them off and pick them up from their many activities during the week. While they were at their activities I would do laundry, pack their lunches for the next day, clean the house and run any errands that the parents needed done. When the children were home I would make them an after school snack and make sure they had their homework done and that they were studying for upcoming tests. 4 1/2 years ago I decided to stop working as a Nanny for both families and I started working full time for our family business that my father runs. Over the past 5 years I am still very involved in the younger boys life. I babysit for him when his parents need help and I have been tutoring him in spelling, reading, writing and math 2-3 days a week when I am done with my full time job. Though I do not have a teaching degree, his parents know how well he works and responds with me so they decided to ask me to help him, which I believe reflects on how well I work with children.

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in Northbrook, 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.

Northbrook 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 Northbrook? 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 Northbrook?
  • 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.
