I am one of 6 children (right in the middle) in my close family. I always grew up around young children in my family (cousins and siblings) and adapted really well. I have also taken numerous college courses on child development and child psychology. I have been a lifeguard for the past 6 years (for the past 3 years I am Head lifeguard, making most decisions at the pool and communicating with patrons) during which I have taught swimming lessons to children ages 4-12 yrs.

Most of my child experience comes from two jobs that I work at. One is at a kid's club day care center, where I watch children from all ages for numerous hours. Mostly playing with and teaching the children. The second is my experience as a Lifeguard for the past 5 years, teaching swimming lessons and developing relationships with children and their families. I am highly certified in CPR, AED, first aid, and lifeguarding (which includes teaching swimming lessons). I also have 3 younger brothers who I have cared for since they were infants. I come from a family of 6 children (2 older and 3 younger) along with experience with younger cousins, a niece and nephew. I am qualified in ABA therapy for children with autism or similar disabilities. I was a personal teacher's aide to a young 4 year old boy with autism in a regular preschool. I also have numerous hours in babysitting experience for all ages. Almost all of the families I have ever worked for, I continue to keep in contact with. I am currently a psychology major and have already taken child development psychology and cognitive development classes; amongst other psychology classes. I have the patience, the heart, and experience as well as qualified training to be a Nanny or Au Pair!

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in Amherst, NY

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 NY? 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.
