I am an energetic and compassionate 43 year old nanny with 10+ years experience. Due to the Covid 19 crisis, one of the parents I work for is being furloughed and they will not be able to keep me on. I’ve been with my current family since their first born was 3 months old. He turns two next month and they have added a little girl to their family. She will be 1 in June. I’ve established remarkable bonds with both children and will be sad to be moving on but eager to share my talents with a new family. I can provide letters of recommendation and professional references Upon request. My strengths include establishing routine, cultivating and encouraging creativity, showing patience and compassion and dependability. Im a big advocate of reading with children of all ages And volunteer with a nonprofit reading to and play with children living in shelters. Id love to meet your family and see if I might be a good fit in your home. Thank You in advance for your consideration.

I currently work for kinder care! I have 15 kids with 2 other teachers in the room. I want to make more connections with my kids and teach them more than what I can at kinder care . With 15 kids it’s hard to do that which is why I’m deciding to go my own way ! 💛

My name is Karla. I’m 21, I speak both spanish and english fluently. I have took care of plenty of kids even my own siblings. I have a child of my own aswell, a really energetic playful 4 yr old and I know it gets frustrating not having someone you trust to watch over your kids even if it’s for a few minutes. We can meet and you can decide If I’m the right fit. I’m really patient and really energetic. I enjoy playing with kids keeping them entertained. I don’t really condone tv or phone but if you think that’s ok I will for sure let them. I know how picky kids get especially toddlers and I know my way around on meals for them to enjoy. The only downside is that I don’t drive so I can’t pickup or go any anywhere but I can get to your house. I am available mon-sat, mornings, afternoons, evenings. I hope I hear from you and I will be more than happy to meet you!

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in Waukegan, 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.

Waukegan 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 Waukegan? 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 Waukegan?
  • 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.
