Sarah Fansler
Stafford$15/hr  |  4 yrs experience
Hello, my name is Sarah. I have two sisters and four nephews. I come from a family of five that values family time. I love photography and almost any craft or art project. Additionally, I love taking children on outings such as walks or to parks.
My previous childcare experience starts with working in my church's infant room since I was 9 and continues with my four nephews ages 19, 14, 9, and 6. In the past, I have babysat all four of my nephews by myself, which may not seem like a big deal until you factor in that the 19-year-old is nonverbal autistic and the 9-year-old is verbal autistic. This adds a layer of difficulty which makes any other combination of children seem like a breeze. I have been a babysitter to a full-time nanny for children ranging in age from 4-months to 12-years-old. Including a set of infant triplets. My role in children's lives have been very different, but I have loved each one!
I am CPR/first aid trained. I have 2 certificates at NVCC.

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in Virginia

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.

Virginia 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 Virginia? 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 Virginia?
  • Do you have a Virginia 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.
