Holbrook$17.14/hr  |  < 1 yr experience
I am currently a nanny for 3 children under 6 years old. I have been witht this family for 4 yrs and have enjoyed it.I was also a nanny for a three yr. old and a 10 month old. They decided to put them in a daycare so that they could interact more with other children. I worked in Arkansas for a six year old. While she was in school I would tidy up the house, wash dishes, run errands, and start cooking supper. I would pick her up from the bus stop and then we would do homework and then play for a while. I have been babysitting children for over 10 years. I truly love working with kids. I enjoy taking them to the library, parks, zoo, and museums. Kids are very smart and pick up on everything. I am a very happy go person, fun, patient, and energetic. I love laughing and meeting new people. Additional information: I'm looking for a nice and loving family where the parents back you up on the decisions you have made unless they don't agree and then we should talk about it. I'm willing to clean up after the childen, cook their meals, and do light housekeeping. I'm here to look after and care for the kids first and foremost. Candidate's challenges of position: Children are children, they are going to cry, act out, be silly, do things to see how far they can push you until you budge and that is something you have to deal with. I like to use timeout because I feel they work, but I would do what ever the parents thought would be better. I think it is challenging when the parents do not back you up and then they let the kids walk all over you and that is something I can not support. Candidate's rewards of position: I find the things that make me proud, is when I can teach them something and I see them using or showing what I have taught them. Like with toddlers helping them walk, saying their a,b,c's, showing their manners, and anything else I see I have taught them. It shows me that I am doing my job.

I started babysitting when I was 11 year old for family's around my neighborhood. We moved to Florida from living in Dix Hills and I started babysitting children in our community. I started working at a Camp at the age of 14-16 I started off as a counselor their, with children between the ages of 4-5 yrs of age. Camp loved me and so did all the children and parents. Once I turned 18 and graduated high school in 07 I got a job at Discovery Preschool working with toddlers. I loved that job very much and I knew right then and there that working with children was my thing. I worked there for almost 2 yrs. I then moved back up to NY and started watching my nephew he was 9 months and I watched him till he was 2. I was with him from early in the morning till late at night. I then got a job at Tutor Time in west islip and enrolled my nephew in there as well. I got hired as a floater and went from room to room. Then my perminant position was in the infants in the mornings and toddlers in the afternoons. I grew such a strong relationship with all the children and parents but the pay was horrible so after a year I left. After working in an office for the summer I realized I missed working with kids. I got a job at learnin seeds of Holbrook in October had a perminant position with the 3 year olds who loved me very much and I loved them as well. Parents were extremely happy with me. I then moved into the infants room where I became so close with the baby's and parents. Working with children is an amazing experience for me. I love the children as if they were my own. Learning seeds of Holbrook shut down yesterday 3/2/2012 and now I'm in need of a job. Working with children is what I still want to do.

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in Holbrook, 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.

Holbrook 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 Holbrook? 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 Holbrook?
  • 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.
