Hello Families! I’m Emma. i’m 17 years old and i’ve worked with children since i’ve been 12. I grew up babysitting my brothers friends childre and my niece. I love working with children because they’re adorable. I encourage them to read and write and to have fun! I currently have a program at school where I work with children ages 2-5, Tuesday-Thursday. We make lessons for them and teach them the things they need to know for going into kindergarten. I would love to have the chance to make a positive impact on your child and families lives!

I have been a full-time and part-time nanny for the past 6-7 years. I started babysitting when I was 13 years old and I have been watching children as a way of income ever since! I love being able to teach children and help them learn and grow. I am fortunate enough to have experience with all ages, from newborns to 14 years old and every age in between. I am an energetic, responsible, caring, and of course fun young woman who would love the opportunity to build new relationships and become part of someones family!

I'm a nurturing care giver with a lot of patience. I have been a full time nanny for two years and I have been babysitting for nine solid years. Most of my experience comes from caring for infants but I have cared for children at every age in between two weeks and fourteen years. I have aced three childhood development classes. One of them required me to be a preschool aid for a semester. I have plenty of experience caring for children with ADHD and autism. I know how to perform CPR on infants and children. I'm also familiar with emergency first aid. I'm very attentive to the children that I care for and I adjust my babysitting style for each child because I know from experience that no two children are the same. I really enjoy entertaining and teaching children. I'm very active so you can rest assured that your children won't be watching television all day. For my last job I learned how to make baby food by utilizing food steamers and a food processor. I'm very punctual and have my own reliable transportation. I have a spotless driving record and three up to date background checks. I've never been fired from a job because I take a lot of pride in my work. I am fluent in English and have a basic understanding of Spanish. I'm comfortable with nanny cams and I can even bring my laptop and portable internet connection to set up a private, live nanny cam on Skype. You would be able to access this live nanny cam from any PC or smart phone with a free version of Skype. This way you could be 100% sure that your children are receiving care that is up to your standards. I have plenty of references available upon request. Thank you for your time!

As a young retired School Social/Work Coordinator I have had the pleasure of working closely with many children. I have Nannied/Mentored and parent partnered to help hundreds of young children grow up to be productive and responsible adults. I'm creative, caring, loving, responsible and quick to problem solve situations that may seem frustrating ad overwhelming. My friends say I was born to care for children. My son who is now grown living outside the home was born with a developmental disability. Caring for him wasn't always easy. It taught me patience, creativity and playfullness. I have a calm personality that young children find very comforting.

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in Oak 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.

Oak 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 Oak 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 Oak 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.
