A little bit about me…

Hi there! I’m Shannon. I have a bachelors degree in early childhood education. I’ve worked and ran my own childcare centers since 1997 with exception to 4.5 years working as a flight attendant. I believe in leaning through play and teach infant sign language starting at 6 months old. I have written daily educational preschool lesson plans. I’ve had years of experience with neurodivergent children. I believe children are naturally happy and eager to please and to learn. My childcare style is to keep children engaged in rotating activities, reward positive behaviors and re direct when necessary. I don’t believe in raising voices, intimitation or talking down to a child. I think modeling expected behavior and having clear boundaries is a key to a happy, balanced child.I have taken cpr and an emt course through my local college.I am experienced with safe handling of breast milk as well as making homemade organic baby foods. .
I would love to introduce myself.

Hi, I’m Cheyenne and I am so glad to meet you! I was born and raised in Gig Harbor and love to spend time at parks, beaches, or at our local coffee shops.

A little bit about me…

My name is Teasha! I have a 7.5 month old, I worked for State Farm for 4 years, before that the Union as a benefits rep. When I was younger and in school, being a only child, I was watching my parents , friends kids. My first real job was a full time nanny job for our neighbors. My needs, wants and patience for things changed after having a baby.. I find myself much happier with children who carry no judgement in the world, and don’t see all the negative things in life. Children see all the good things in life. They don’t know what being bitter, and unhappy is quite yet! Which is why I love them! They show and remind us of the raw, raw emotional truth! Which is why I’m here! I’m available for a part time, during the week flexible nanny position! My husband and I also own a construction company, so he’s off on the weekends, which is our family time and I believe should also be yours too! If you have any additional questions feel free to ask me!

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in Gig Harbor, WA

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.

Gig Harbor 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 Gig Harbor? 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 Gig Harbor?
  • Do you have a driver’s license in WA? 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.
