A little bit about me…

I'm still new to nannying, but not new to kids lol! I have 6 other siblings, so I'm used to the crazy life style and different personalities when it comes to children! I love kids and getting to know them, and if I can make them happy that is payment in itself! I basically am like a mom at my apartment for my roommates. I cook, clean, and prepare food for them. I'm pretty tech savvy so I'm good at coming up with schedules if your family needs that too!

A little bit about me…

Hi! I’ve been working with kids for about nine years. I’m the oldest of my 5 siblings as well so I had a lot of practice when I was young too. I was a teachers assistant at a Spanish immersion Montessori school for about five years and have been nannying for four years now. I love spending time with kids! I pride myself on being very caring, responsible and punctual. I strive to bring positive energy into the home environment and make sure that everyone is comfortable and happy. It’s very important to me that my connection with parents is just a strong as my connection with their children. I look forward to hearing from you and sharing my resume in hopes of being a great addition to your family!

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in Oak Park, 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 Park 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 Park? 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 Park?
  • 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.
