A little bit about me…
My name is Danica. I grew up in Seattle, Washington. I graduated from the University of California, Irvine in June of 2013 double majoring in Film & Media Studies and Journalism and minoring in Education (Child development courses). During college I nannied for twins from birth to about 4 years old and the past 5 years I've been babysitting for a family with two sons since they were both newborns. I have a sister who is 14 and have babysat her since she was born. I helped my parents raise her. I have many years of experience in child care- I volunteered for 2 years at my church's nursery caring for infants and taught Sunday school for 2 years. I volunteered at many camps every summer since I was in middle school for kids 3 - 14 years old. I worked at a Sports Club as a Children’s Programs Assistant for 3 summers and I worked in a Kids Club at a Sports Clubs in Southern California and New York for 5 years. During my junior and senior years in college I volunteered at Turtle Rock Elementary School as a first grade teacher aid and also as an after school tutor for ThinkTogether. I love children and would treat yours as if they were my own!

I love kids, they’ve been a big part of my life and I plan to be around them and working with them until I have kids of my own (and even then I hope to be a children’s author). I wouldn’t call myself artistic, but being a babysitter/nanny is a way that I am 100% creative. I am a goofy and silly adult and for kids to appreciate who I am is the best feeling ever. I love teaching and learning from kids!

I have 10+ years experience with kids, but I am not one of those people who thinks they know everything about kids. It's true that you don't really know until you have some of your own, which I don't and I get it. I will never think that I know what is best for your child. I know the importance of wanting to feel secure with leaving your child with someone, because my mom had that with me as my sister's babysitter.

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in Mechanicsburg, PA

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.

Mechanicsburg 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 Mechanicsburg? 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 Mechanicsburg?
  • Do you have a driver’s license in PA? 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.
