I have worked in both certified and more personable settings caring and serving the ages of infants (3 months - 1 year), toddlers (1 - 3 years), preschoolers (3 - 4 years) and Pre-K (4 - 6 years). I am very comfortable and knowledgeable with the psychological, physical, emotional, and social development of these ages. I have been in the lead role for both toddler and pre-K age, which require lesson planning, art project prep, keeping a schedule, keeping a clean and safe environment, creating fun activities, reading and writing prep and much more.

My name is Courtney and I am 24 years old and just graduated from Oregon State this past year. My degree was in Speech Communication but I also took numerous courses pertaining to Childhood Development and Teaching Young Children. My past experience being a nanny started when I was 16 years old. I became a nanny for my infant sister and used that experience as work study in high school. This was a paid position and my sister is also a special needs child. During the summers from age 16-18 I was a nanny to two other children ages 2-4. When I was 21 I moved down to Saratoga, California to be a nanny to a family of 5. The parents worked full time and they had two 12-14-year-old children and also a 7-year-old. I did this for the summer then moved back to Oregon to finish my degree. I have also done extensive volunteer work at the Hospital as a Junior Volunteer and a Basketball coach in Corvallis Oregon. During High School I was a peer mentor, was on the culinary team and did various sports. I love to cook, read, be outdoors, play sports, be active and help people. Ideally I would like to find a family that I can be a nanny for a long period of time. I find that it is extremely important for a child to have a nanny that they can know and trust. I am CPR/First Aid certified and have renewed my cards every year they become due. I have my own transportation and look to find a position within the next 1-2 months.

In the past, I was an A+ group leader for an after school program. My duties included: Always ensure safety and health of all group members, lead and control the group in all daily activities, stimulate creative learning and create fun and positive group experiences, communicate with parents or guardians of children on a daily basis, and care for and maintain facilities and equipment used by the group. I also was a babysitter a few times for my pastor's children. They are 8 and 10 years old. Some of my responsibilities were to watch them, play with them, feed them, and help them get ready for bed.

I have been babysitting for children since I was 12 yrs old, and nannied during college. I've had over 15 years of experience and have took care of lots of children ranging in age from infants and toddlers to teens. I have a warm loving heart and although I am a responsible adult I still have that fun, childlike personality that allows me to connect well with children. I Nannied for a family with a 3 month old boy until he was a little over a year old. Taking care of him was a lot of fun. He learned to talk, to crawl, then walk and run and play, it was very rewarding to be apart of that. Before college I nannied for a family for a year with 3 girls ages 3 months, 5 and 11 years.

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in Happy Valley, OR

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.

Happy Valley 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 Happy Valley? 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 Happy Valley?
  • Do you have a driver’s license in OR? 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.
