A little bit about me…

I’ve been a Professional Nanny for 13 years. I have an AA in Early Childhood Education also and have worked since 2000 in this field. Most of my experience is with infants thru 7 years.
I enjoy all aspects of the early learning field of teaching and have a passion for preparing little children for their entrance into Kindergarten. By helping a child become prepared for Kindergarten, I believe I’m helping his/her level of confidence be high. I have extensive and long term experience with the families I’ve worked. Working closely with parents as to their specifics when raising their children but also having good work ethics and a love and passion for what I do, I believe, make a good combination in a Nanny.
I’ve experienced all of the many milestones of the first and second year and all of the stages of growth that children grow thru as they get ready for Kindergarten. I understand the average and look for the less than and above average.
I’m a Sub/Para for a local school district also.

A little bit about me…

Megan Kelley from Olympia, WA
I have spent some time over the years babysitting for multiple children ages ranging from infant-12. As well as caring for a lovely young man with down syndrome, which required more than average responsibilities defusing arguments with siblings and lending an understanding ear. I have no problem making meals/snacks that fit dietary restrictions, changing clothing and personal hygiene, as well as keeping children safe and entertained. I enjoy creating fun arts and crafts projects, building an awesome lego set, playing some games, or even just relaxing and watching some kid friendly tv/movies; if screen time is ok of course I have no problem enforcing screen time rules and creating other activities. Overall I have spent many hours babysitting and volunteering in my church's children's ministry working with kiddos and am hoping to get back to it. I am currently working at a local pizzeria in Olympia and am missing my passion of working with children!

She has engaged my son with down syndrome and helped with his behavioral needs as well. She is an incredible young lady whom I would have watch my children any day."

A little bit about us…

Hello. My name is Ashley. I have a 7 & 2 year old. My husband and I both work full time jobs but would only need care Mon-Tues. I would get my daughter to school and she would take the bus home and you could just get her from the bus.
We aren’t making 6 figures so a price would be talked about and offers appreciated and considered. When it comes to my kids I’m definitely a mama bear so there would be a very thorough “interview” I hope you understand. My son is who you would be with all day and as he may be a handful sometimes he is still a sweet boy. Hopefully get to know some really awesome potential people. Thank you for reading ! Would love to get to know you :)

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in Olympia, 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.

Olympia 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 Olympia? 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 Olympia?
  • 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.
