A little bit about me…

Hello! My name is Molly Elyse or M.E. for short. I have been working with children for eleven years. First I was a babysitter, then I opened my own care agency, and after college I went to school to become a special education teacher.

In my free time I love to hike, read, cook, and craft. My sister is a chef and owns her restaurant in Austin, Texas so it’s cool to learn new skills from her in the kitchen. I also recently took up lifting and have made it part of my routine.

I studied anthropology and computer science for my bachelors then I got a dual Masters in Teaching and Special Education. I love the combination of my education because it allows me to see things from different cultural perspectives.

I am looking forward to meeting you and your families.

All the best!

A little bit about me…

**I am currently looking for a position as a postpartum/birth Doula or part-time nanny!**
Hi everyone!
I am a hands on, baby wearing, booboo kissing nanny that loves to sing, dance and play outside all day rain or shine.
My favourite age to work with is infants because they grow so much every single day.
It's amazing to see how beautiful the trees are or the first snowfall through a child's eyes and I feel so lucky to get to be apart of their individual journeys.

I have studied one year in E.C.E. and one year in psychology pre-covid
I am daycare teacher certified, just recertified as a special needs caregiver, and am in school to be a full spectrum Doula with BAI.
I have all relevant trainings for childcare up to date (CPR/AED/FIRST AIDE, Oregon trainings).
I am fully vaccinated, wear a mask, and sanitize regularly.

A little bit about me…

Hi families! My name is Jennessa Jackson, I have been in the childcare field for about 4 years now going on 5. I am 19 years old, a college student at Portland State University studying Child, Youth, & Family Studies hoping to be an Occupational Therapist one day or an Early Childhood Educator. I have experience by being a nanny for a family in NE Portland for two girls ages 6 and 9, since they were 2 and 5. While doing that, I was in High School completing Sabin-Schellenberg’s Technical Center - Child Development Program. I did this all four years. The first year was a more textbook informed study, second year was hands on with kids aged 3-5. The third year consisted of me in Mt.Scott Elementary School working as a Kindergarten Aide, and the last year was a practicum level 2 for child & family services working as a Kindergarten Aide as well. I just recently worked at a Daycare in Portland working with kids aged 1-5 , but had to be cut short because of an unexpected family emergency.

A little bit about me…

Hello! My name is Emily! I am 22 years old and a recent graduated from University of Puget Sound. I now have my bachelors in Kinesology and Neuroscience and plan on applying to medical school in three years.

I love reading, the outdoors, and I have the most adorable cat!

I have a car to commute to you! I would be open to one time coverage or a long-term position.

I started babysitting when I was 13 (ages ranging from infant to 10. years old) and became a camp counselor at 17. Here, at camp, I spent 8 weeks of the summer with a cabin of ~12 campers ages 13-15 years old. I do, however, have experience working with all ages. At 15 years old, my family adopted newborn twins and I was a crucial part of their upbringing. I have a car to commute to you! I am graduating in May, but am planning on staying in the Seattle area post-graduation, and I would be able to move to full-time in the summer!

A little bit about us…

Need part time childcare for my sweet and happy 10-month-old daughter roughly 1-2 days/week for around 4 hours each day in the late afternoons. Duties include minor dishes and food prep, minor clean up/vaccuum, supervised play and learning, reading books, and changing diapers. We have two very friendly indoor only cats who will also be around but no actually care is required.

My daughter is very busy learning how to crawl and able to pull herself up to stand. She loves books, singing songs, playing peek-a-boo, going for walks in the neighborhood, and trying all the new foods! She takes naps twice a day and will likely sleep for a portion of the time we'd need care. We prefer someone come to our house for these reasons. Plus we have all the gizmos and gadgets a baby could need here!

It would be an easy part time position with opportunities to add more hours potentially in the future or for date nights. We'd love to see if you'd be the right fit for our family!

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in Portland, 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.

Portland 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 Portland? 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 Portland?
  • 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.

Daycare vs. Hiring a Nanny

Choosing between putting your child in daycare and hiring a nanny can be a tough decision. While nannies are often more expensive, they provide individualized attention and flexibility. Daycares, on the other hand, prioritize socialization. Our Nanny vs Daycare guide can help you determine what's best for your family.
