A little bit about me…

Hi, I'm Maddy! I grew up in foster care till I was 8 & then was adopted into a big family (I'm an aunt of over 16 nieces & nephews). I have worked as a caretaker/nanny for children with behavioral issues/disabilities. I am very big on spending time outdoors & doing activities that keep my body healthy such as running or MMA class which is also a work ethic I apply when coming to care for children as well! even if it's just 20 minutes a day outdoors do a lot of good for the kiddos. I am a very clean and organized person so you would never have to worry about coming home to toys laying everywhere ( please do understand I am not a maid so I will not be doing every household chore). I'm bilingual as well ( English & Spanish ) so I like to teach the kids a few phrases or works to help them to learn Spanish as well.

Hi I'm Colleen! I'm 28-years-old with experience in both pediatric medical care and home childcare, or nanny and house manager.

I want to be able to dedicate as much time as needed and connect with the family on a more personal level to secure trust and respect.

I truly believe that childhood is the most important stage of our lives which requires safety, education, and experiences to remember.

A little bit about me…

Hello! I'm Alexanda. With over 15 years of experience in early childhood education, I'm excited to introduce myself as your potential nanny. From 8 weeks to 15 years old, I've had the privilege of nurturing a wide range of children. Hailing from a family of educators, teaching and caring for children is not just a job but a cherished tradition passed down through generations. Inspired by the teachings of my mother and grandmother, both esteemed teachers, I believe in the power of kindness and gentle nurturing in guiding children. I've also had the honor of working with children with special needs, offering support and care tailored to their individual requirements. As a CPR-certified caregiver, safety is always my top priority. With a warm heart and a playful spirit, I am dedicated to creating a nurturing environment where children can learn, grow, and thrive.

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in Chicago, IL

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.

Chicago 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 Chicago? 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 Chicago?
  • Do you have a driver’s license in IL? 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.
