I became a caregiver because I have a passion for kids. Being the oldest of (now) 18 cousins, I've pretty much grown up helping raise my younger cousins, all while watching them thrive and succeed. I am a child at heart, so I like to spend most of my time with children. Children are very funny and I like to be a role model and set an example for growing children. I am full of ideas and can most definitely keep your child entertained. Your child will most likely become my best friend, and I take great care of those close to me. In high school, I spent up to 3 hours after school every day as a childcare provider in the After School Program. These past three summers I've spent working 50 hours a week at a summer camp in Seekonk, MA. Although I do not have my own car as I'm in college, I am very good at using public transportation to my advantage. Miles from home is dependent on public transportation availability.

Hey! My name is Abby Rose and I am currently studying Criminal Justice at New England Institute of Technology. I have been working with kids since I was 14 years old and I absolutely love it! I started by working with my cousins and made my way to a preschool where I was a full time teacher. I was the head infant teacher and I was a float between preschool and toddler rooms. If it is nice out, I love to take kids outside and play with them. Swings, zoo, chalk, anything they have fun doing! If it’s a rainy or cold day outside, I love playing with Play-Doh and paint while watching cartoons. Maybe even baking some cookies! In my free time, I love baking, hiking, adventures, traveling with my boyfriend, and have responsible fun!

Hi! My name is Emma and I am taking a gap year and staying home. My passion is competitive mountain biking and being outdoors! I have been a babysitter since my younger brother was born in 2008. I have taken CPR classes and have been certified. I do have a car and can do pick ups or drop offs. Watching kids and making sure they are safe while having fun comes naturally to me and would love to have an opportunity to have an interview with you!

Karla S.

She is really amazing! I wish I can keep her with my family forever but my boys are all grown up now. I am sad to let her go but excited for her to start a new endeavor. She will clean your whole house if you blink! The kids love her and she will still always be part of my family. - Stephanie

Perla S.

She was always kind, considerate, and easy to rely on. My kids enjoyed having her as their babysitter - Michelle

Kate R.

Katie is the best! My kids would ask when she was coming next. Caring, responsible, kind and reliable. I like that she taught my kids good manners. (In a gentle way) She has lots of energy taking them outside every day and planning fun activities. Highly recommend!! We still use her from time to time. - Jennifer

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in Rhode Island

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.

Rhode Island 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 Rhode Island? 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 Rhode Island?
  • Do you have a Rhode Island driver’s license? 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.
