Laura C. - Seeking Work in Sherwood
Laura C.
Sherwood$22.85/hr  |  < 1 yr experience
I have worked with kids ranging from infant to middle school age, including special needs care. I specialize in Early Childhood Development and have spent most my work with newborn through 4 year olds. I have formal training in behavioral therapy and child development and care. I am CPR/First Aid and Emergency Response trained. But beyond the formal training, I really just have a heart for working with children. I love the from the first time I work with them. I am very much a be on the floor playing kind of person than a sit on the couch and watch them play person. It is such a blessing to watch children grow and learn. I like to spend time reading, singing and dancing with kids. I also love to plan outings, even if it's just walking around the mall or target. I have a zoo membership and I love to go there, although the weather hasn't permitted it too much. Being active with the kids is important to me. I really try and be a third parent to the kids and like to work with parents who also want that. I think the best thing when having a child care provider is having someone who takes on the habits and routines of the parents and integrates that with their own techniques to give the kids stability in parenting styles. I am really big on open and honest communication. In the end, the happiness and safety of your child is what's most important. As far as duties go, I am more than willing to do light laundry, especially the kids, cleaning up the house at the end of the day and doing meal prep. I am also happy to run errands/get groceries. I am also extremely flexible and willing to be on call. I can do overnights/last minute needs/trips. I like to feel like an extension of the family.

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in Sherwood, 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.

Sherwood 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 Sherwood? 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 Sherwood?
  • 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.
