A little bit about me…

Hi families! My name is Jessica. I have been working with kids for over 10 years. I also have two kids of my own, ages 6 and 2 (the 6yr old is an extremely picky eater so I have extra experience with that!) I have always had a passion for the childcare industry. I never feel like it’s “work” when I love what I do. I have experience with kids of all ages, but I would say the toddler years are my favorite. That's when they are so curious and eager to learn! I went to school for ECE. I am also CPR certified. My most recent experience is nannying full time with a family for over 6 years. Before that I worked at a daycare in the toddler room. My favorite thing to do with kids of all ages is projects and educational activities that fit each childs interests.
*I would love to work with a family that is comfortable with me bringing my daughter with me.

"Jessica has been with our family for 6 years. We moved out of the area or else she would still be with us. She had been a great asset to our family and our 2 kids absolutely adore her. Jess always goes above and beyond for our kids and family and is already greatly missed. She is always playing games and doing activities with our kids which is important to us. I can not recommend Jessica enough. Please feel free to contact me at any time. I would be more then happy to speak with future employers."

A little bit about me…

I’m mom of 4 grownup children and I have an early childhood education degree. I’ve been nannying for over 20 years for children from a newborn till age 7 . My former employers describe me as being patient, loving, warm, nurturing, energetic, outgoing and creative nanny. I take great pride in keeping kids active, spending time outdoors as much as possible, doing art projects, teaching about the world around them and encouraging them to be independent as they grow. I love not just to read a book, but ask questions and make the child think and develop individual ideas and perspectives ( so much fun! ). I describe myself as well mannered, kind, humble and respectful person. It’s a very rewarding for me seeing the child reaching milestones as they grow.
I believe every child is unique so I encourage them by supporting their
talents and individuality.
In reference to discipline philosophy I try to be extension of parents style.

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in Palatine, 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.

Palatine 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 Palatine? 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 Palatine?
  • 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.
