Moving to the Providence Area.

Hey there! My name is Simone. I have always loved working with children. My journey began when I became a Nanny. I worked with a family of 3, their youngest being 7 years old. I was very lucky to have been able to meet such a loving family, who welcomed me into their home. As someone who has had many years of experience working with adults and children with all different abilities, I was happy to come into Nannying, being able to assist a young girl with cerebral palsy. She has taught me so much about life, and how to make challenges into motivation. Moving along into the mental health field after graduating with my associates, I worked with children ages 12 to 18 in a hospital setting. Currently I am working at an after school program with children 5 to 12. With all that I have learned throughout the years, it has never been a dull moment. I have appreciated all that life has allowed me to experience.

My name is Rachel and I am a current nursing student at RIC. I have 8 years of babysitting experience from newborn to 12 years old and worked mostly with toddlers. I am comfortable taking kids to the beach, hiking, and to other public locations, such as the zoo. I was a camp counselor for 4 years as well so I have plenty of experience with coming up with activities to do throughout the day as well, especially outside. I coach a girls softball team for ages 7-12 as well.

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.
