A little bit about me…

I'm Jess, I'm a licensed professional counselor who has been working with kids and families in West Philly for the last ten years as a nanny, school counselor, and family therapist. I've enjoyed supporting kids and families in their growth, having the opportunity to play, and the sweetness that spending time with children brings to my life. It is one of the greatest honors of my life to be a part of the emotional lives of children and families and shape them as my experiences with them shape me. I've enjoyed my roles as consultant, collaborator, and companion in the families I've worked with in the past and am interested in working with a family who values clear communication, gentleness, compassion, mutual respect, and playfulness.

In my free time I love to cook, travel, spend time outdoors, host big parties for my chosen family, volunteer for an herbal medicine mutual aid project, and sing made up songs to my cat.

"Jess cared for our kiddo from the time kiddo was 5 months old, until she was just about 18 months. The only reason our engagement ended was Covid, when the nanny share we were in dissolved due to lockdown. Jess is very caring and calm, and it truly helped me as a new parent, to be able to hand my child off each workday morning knowing that she would be looking after my child. Jess always made sure to give us feedback from the day, which was super helpful, especially as we were navigating the change from bottles to solid food. My kiddo loved spending time with Jess (and her nanny share buddy). Engagement and outdoor play is important, and Jess always made sure that both kids in the Nanny share had plenty of both. Without hesitation, we recommend Jess to any parent seeking not just a caregiver, but a partner in nurturing their child's growth. If we ever decided to have another child there's no doubt in our minds – Jess would be our nanny in a heartbeat."

A little bit about me…

Hello my name is Amy & I have been working in the childcare field for over 12 years now and absolutely love it! Within the years of working in childcare I worked with all age groups and was even a pre-k teacher for 4 years! My responsibilities before becoming a pre-k teacher included: diaper changing, bottle feeding infants along with swaddling and putting them down for nap, going for walks in the stroller, arts and crafts, music fun, story time & plenty of tummy time activities! When I started as a pre-k teacher my responsibilities were: planning fun activities, circle time learning which included going over colors, numbers, ABC’s etc, outside supervision, arts and crafts, music fun, setting up breakfast, snacks and lunch and nap time. I also worked with school aged children which would only be for part of the day, I was responsible for helping with homework and outdoor supervision as well. I love working with children! It is such a rewarding job to me❤️

"It is my great pleasure to recommend Brianna Jones as a nanny. She has been caring for our 5 year old since he was a newborn. Bree is bright, reliable and affectionate. She is also well-versed in child development, both due to her experience working in childcare and her studies while she is obtaining her CDA. she just has a natural affinity towards children. She relates well to our son in such a delightful way, turning practically everything into a life lesson and a fun game. Bree also knows how to structure time well, but it also flexible. she is very good when it comes to arts and crafts and homework help. My house has also never looked better when shes around,and she is an excellent cook!

How to Hire a Nanny in Philadelphia, PA

Nanny Lane is an easy-to-use website that helps families find experienced local nannies in Philadelphia. Simplify your nanny search and find your perfect nanny today. Our services include background checks, nanny contracts, and nanny payroll.

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in Philadelphia, 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.

Philadelphia 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 Philadelphia? 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 Philadelphia?
  • 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.

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.
