A little bit about me…

I have nannied/ babysat most of my adult life, as did my mother. Children are the best part of life and should be enjoyed for the small amount of time we can share with them. Was also a lifeguard and trained w how to react in a situation but am no longer certified.
I enjoy the arts and playing music, painting and believe children learn through these creative outlets to prepare for their adult lives.
I enjoy the messes in life but also understand the process of cleaning up after one's self.
I have coached basketball, tee ball and have also played these sports as well as many others. I enjoy gardening and teaching our youth the ways of our grandparents and how to behave and earn respect when it's given.
Younger minds need inspiration and fun as key tools to learn and grow.

A little bit about me…

I have an associates in social and behavioral science, as I had planned to go into psychology early in college. I moved to Springfield from the San Francisco Bay Area to spend some time with my father before he died.

Being around kids gives my life new meaning - they have my heart completely. I believe in gentle parenting and giving children security in feeling safe, protected, and cared about. I love teaching them new things and giving them the tools for everyday situations; from using fine motor skills to learning new games. I love seeing their minds expand as well as playing pretend with them. I’m always learning new things about them and their world around them. To be one of the people to hold their hand while they explore it is one of my life’s greatest joys, and I only hope to bring joy to their life.

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in Springfield, 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.

Springfield 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 Springfield? 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 Springfield?
  • 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.
