My first job working with children I would have to say was in High School. I worked at a summer camp that works alongside children to adults with special needs. I was paid and worked there with a few friends. It was absolutely a difficult job, especially at 15 years old, but I can not say this enough that it really was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I still keep in touch with many of the children who are grown now. It taught me not to take anything for granted, and it showed me that nobody is really that different and that people with disabilities really shouldn't be treated any differently. I have also helped babysit the occassional children throughout Junior High and High School. One family was a 6 year old child who couldn't have been more happy and easy to take care of. I know how lucky I was. In my senior year of High School I tutored a Freshman English class that I had previously taken myself. I worked alongside the teacher helping with lesson plans, helping with homework in class, and teaching things myself. That was in 2003. I always have said if I wasn't working toward a doctorate in business I would have been a teacher. There are so many jobs that interest me and its hard to think, "How do I choose one for the rest of my ?" I'm happy with my choice in college, but working alonside children has become more and more a hobby that I like to take advantage of anytime I am alloted it. Recently, I have given a few speeches to High School students in my hometown in Maine who are interested in going to college. It's rewarding to be able to come back from NYC with my knowledge and show that and let people know that there is a huge world out there with so many opportunities and overall letting them know that its okay to be nervous, I certainly was, but to just do it. There's no other way you'll know unless you go for it whole heartedly.

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in Dix Hills, 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.

Dix Hills 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 Dix Hills? 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 Dix Hills?
  • 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.
