Chris Holmes
Amherst$20/hr  |  5 yrs experience
Hello, My name is Chris, I'm originally from England and now living in the US for the last 2-3 years.

I am a highly passionate, motivated and energetic individual with ten years’ experience working in a variety of childcare environments, assisting a diverse clientele. Highly dedicated to fostering supportive environments and creating engaging relationships in order to accomplish goals and support organizational initiatives.

A brief summary of my education. I have studied different areas of childcare and education over the last 10 years. I have a level 2 certificate and a level 3 Diploma in childcare and education from the Basingstoke collage of technology in England. While working as a nanny I studied at home with the Open University for 4 years which included professional practice, child development, childhood studies and extended professional practice. I have had CRP training a few times over the years but will need a refresher course.

Amherst Center, Amherst$15/hr  |  3 yrs experience
Hello my name is Amelia, but most kids tend to call me by my nickname, Mimi:) I am currently a senior at Amherst Regional High School and I plan on attending college in England in the fall ( fingers crossed).

I have been taking care of little ones since I got my first babysitting job at 13. And each job I always have a blast:) I love getting to be goofy with children but I also understand the importance of love, as well as, rules.

I am currently looking for a full time nannying job to take up my free time. I am very available and would be glad to start ASAP:)

All the best!!!

I am a psychology student at UMass and I have been part time nannying for a few years now. Before that I babysat quite frequently and I love to work with kids! I spend lots of time outside and crafting and think education is such an important part of being a nanny. I am available all summer 2018 and all afternoons during the school year. I have experience with special needs children.

Casey C.
Amherst$14.15/hr  |  < 1 yr experience
I have been babysitting since I was ten. It was my first job and I have literally been through it all- sick kids, kids with attitude, kids that miss mom and dad. You name it and I have dealt with it. I love kids and I am the type of sitter that likes to do activities away from the tv. I have a lot of experience and am always willing to learn new things.

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in Amherst, MA

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.

Amherst 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 Amherst? 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 Amherst?
  • Do you have a driver’s license in MA? 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.
