Most recently, I was a nanny for a family of 2 girls, ages 8 and 10 for 2 years. I became like an older sister to them and part of the family. Before that I have babysat regularly for toddlers and infants as young as 9 weeks old. I have worked in a daycare for 2 years and also been a camp counselor.

I have experience working with two infants that are 3 years apart. I only worked with them twice a week, but I am still very close with them today. Other than my babysitting experience with them, I worked for the Reading Recreation Department with children ages 3+ at various camps and sports programs. I currently am a teacher in a public school system outside of Boston.

For ten years I worked at implementing Sunday School lessons to various groups of children. At this establishment, they have over 200 kids under the age of 12 each Sunday, and I worked in the Nursery, the Toddlers, and with the group of kids ages 4-6, 7-9, and 10-12. I used to be the head teacher in the 4-6 year old age group for sections of 35 children. I also ran outings at this church, organizing trips to the water park, the museum, and the zoo for 40+ children, and was a camp counselor for five years at a sleepaway camp that the church ran annually. <br>I have worked at the Vacation Bible School at the for the last eleven years. Each summer, I act as a group child care teacher there, and in the past I have aided in recreation, story, and arts & crafts. I am very creative and for the past few years I have made, by hand, the backdrops for the story stage and all the props we needed for the skits from leftover art materials at the church. I continue to work at this church weekly as both a Sunday School teacher, and as a leader on Friday nights during their program. <br>I have also babysat for various families over the years and can provide at least three references. I babysat two preteen boys for an entire summer, I routinely watch two girls ages 5 and 2 in Roxbury and also take care of their hair for their mother, I babysit for a special needs 7-year-old and her infant sister in Quincy, and I’ve sat for a family in Woburn for years that currently consists of a teenager, her ten-year-old sister, four dogs, and an infant. <br>I very much enjoy working with special needs children as well. When I worked in the Sunday School that had 200+ kids, as mentioned previously, there was a boy there who was autistic and would never say any of the other teacher's names, but he knew mine and would greet me each time he saw me. It was easy for me to develop a profound connection with him, despite challenges. Another girl in the children's church had cerebral palsy and could not talk, but her and I developed such a close relationship that when her parents had their second child, I was allowed to name the baby. I have experience dealing with various special needs, and am more than willing to work with a parent to learn more about any special circumstances. <br>In addition, I worked at a preschool in Quincy for two years as a teacher's assistant, and as a senior in high school, I was the student teacher in a second grade classroom. In addition, while attending Eastern Nazarene College, I worked for an at-risk program the school ran where, each week, we assisted over thirty students with their homework, completed art projects with them, and attended their dance performances, baseball and floor hockey games. I was also the coordinator for an 85-person choir at that college, and since I planned the tours, we went and sang at many local and children’s groups, where we interacted with the kids in their classrooms for several hours afterwards. <br>In the past year, after transferring from ENC, I attended Lesley University, and took many childcare and family classes where we learned the newest techniques in working with kids, what age-appropriate behavior is, and what activities are suitable to engage children of various ages in. I am majoring in both psychology as well as child and family studies, and I am very conscious of things like which foods are nourishing for kids to eat, how much television they should watch (if any at all), and how to engage children in play that will help to develop both their minds and their understanding of healthy conflict resolution. <br>Lastly, I have organized many children’s parties with different themes. I am a master at creating games for kids to play and for calming down those who are distressed. I am very patient and it is difficult for children to upset me, even when they are acting out. I am well-versed in dealing with large groups of children and with kids of various ethnicities. I am not afraid to get messy while having fun, and I am also very good at redirecting children’s attention if things start to get out of hand. I am currently looking for a full-time position, but I could possibly accept part-time work if the rate of pay is reasonable.

I have been babysitting since I was 12 for my neighbor. Now I take care of her daughter's children. My first Nanny position was for a family of 3 children in Lynnfield. My second was for a family of 4 children in Concord in which one of the children had a medical condition known as bipolar. I just recently worked for a family in Reading who had 3 girls ages 7,6 and 20 months. It was only a one year contract but I still babysit occasionally on a weeknight or weekend. I try to keep in touch with all my kids. I absolutely love them all, but I always have enough love for another child/children. When it comes to taking care of children, the supply of love for them is endless.

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in Reading, 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.

Reading 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 Reading? 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 Reading?
  • 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.
