I'm 39, female & my true nature is that of kindness, understanding & compassion. These things have always guided my life, & have never left, even undergoing hardship/turmoil. I am thankful & grateful for the chance to learn & teach something great, which I never thought possible. There's always going to be nonsense & ridiculousness, to say the least, but we don't have to take it inside.
I find little growers, lacking the reason & rationale of an adult brain, needing a gentler, more controlled approach. Its easier said than done sometimes, as we all 'know'; in one way, shape, or form.
I usually relate well, & see people for who they really are, striving to be, without judgement or harsh criticism . I think I'm on the 'quirky/unique' light end of the line, & that has worked in my favor. Another attribute, is that my mind is constantly contemplating the causes & effects of the happenings around me. In this case, keeping the children from harm's way, & in return the home front is better maintained, & secure.
I'm in infinite 'Mommy Mode' with my 3 year old son, & that keeps my eyes & heart open to what's important, & simply necessary . ° *• .

I have five children; I was at home with them. The proof of my experience would be the children I have raised and other parents and children I have influenced. I have a healthcare education with emphasis on maternal & infant care, along with CPR, Birth Doula, Postpartum Doula and Lactation Consultant and have worked in both traditional and emergent care settings. I am available for a temporary position, such as postpartum cay or overnight care, or a permanent position with a family that I can remain with either full or part time. I have my own business providing pain & injury rehabilitation therapies to patients and set my own schedule for seeing patients. I'm looking forward to finding the right family.

Hi my name is Megan. I am 20 years old, was born and raised in Spencer NY. I have been taking care of children and animals my entire life. I started babysitting around age 8 and have watched and taken care of all ages and walks of life. I have 5 nieces and nephews whom I watch regularly. I also have experience as a veterinarian assistant. Which included medications as well as general care. I am responsible and dependable. I'm electronically savvy and have no issues running errands, such as groceries, laundry, mail pick up and drop off, cleaning etc. I enjoy working with children because they have such big and bright imaginations, so I have no choice but to feed off their positive energy. I enjoy working with children and watching them grow intellectually and socially. Seeing a child smile and knowing that you contributed to it, is definitely most rewarding for me. I’m available 8:00 am until 4:00 p.m. Message me for more information and any questions! I look forward to hearing from you!

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in Ithaca, 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.

Ithaca 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 Ithaca? 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 Ithaca?
  • 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.
