I am a 23-year-old who is currently unemployed and looking for a full-time or part-time Nanny/Sitter position. I am very outgoing, loving, responsible, reliable, trustworthy and always respectful! I am great with children and I also have the availability and experience level needed for any sitter/nanny position available! I was a nanny for my neighbor back when I was 16, for 4 years and also cared for her pets (which I'm also willing to do for anyone else.) It wasn't until they moved back to Tennesee that I had to stop the job, because of how far away they were moving. I've done plenty of the same thing over the years since. I would be SO thrilled to help any other families in need! I have my own car and a valid driver's license as well, so you can always rely on me to be there and on time! I truly adore children and they have always really taken to me. I'd be available and thrilled to start as soon as possible, as I have complete availability. I hope to hear from you!

Hi! I just graduated in December 2019 from James Madison University with a Health Science Degree. I have a generous amount of experience working with children from a young age. In high school, I regularly babysat four children (2, 5, 6 and 9) In undergrad, I tutored children ages 6-14. Also in undergrad, I volunteered at a local elementary school in a program called "Big Brothers, Big Sisters", where you are a mentor to a child, or children. This past summer, I created a summer Trades program with a company I was working for, which gave inner city youth children another option other than college (ages 10-13). I love working with children and I plan on incorporating it my career once I finish my Masters degree. I look forward to meeting you and your children!

Hi there! I’m Brittany, 22 years old and currently residing in Harrisonburg, VA. I am a server but I am also interning and studying to become a real estate agent one day. So, for the last 7 months is the first time in four years that I have not been working with children and I am miserable! Working with only adults is stressful and not any fun at all! I have always had many random babysitting jobs growing up or the typical summers nannying while the kids are out of school. I miss it, I truly miss being around their kind souls and free spirits. What makes me stand out is that I’m fun! I worked at a kids spa from May 2013 to April 2017 doing birthday parties (7 parties a weekend, that’s a lot of parties) and let me tell you, that was my favorite job I’ve ever had. Being able to create a space and to be able to interact with kids on their level and just embracing their childhood and having fun with them is really important to me. I am also a very nurturing individual and like to take care of people when they are sick or anytime really. I also am a little bit of a neat freak so your house wouldn’t be destroyed when you come home, it would probably be pretty tidy, which is anther benefit of hiring me as a nanny. I would love to be working with kids again sooner than later. I am not in school right now so my availability is pretty open please contact me if you need a hand!

Hi there!! I am an Aunt Tori to three amazing and beautiful children, but have none of my own. I love children because they give my soul so much joy and laughter. The compassion and innocence in young children truly can often be so inspirational and uplifting to us adults in this hectic and harsh world we live in. Kids must be able to have fun and laugh and learn during their childhood. It is our job as adults to encourage them to develop a desire to learn to make good choices. Not only do I enjoy helping parents ensure their children’s comfort and safety while they’re away, but I am able to positively influence and serve as a good role model to the youth that will eventually serve us one day. I am a new resident of Harrisonburg, originally from Fairmont WV. I have been a commuter for the last two years and finally decided I love it here enough to move. I need a job that I will enjoy daily, that I can also use to help me grow and share my love and kindness with anyone in need.

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in Harrisonburg, VA

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.

Harrisonburg 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 Harrisonburg? 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 Harrisonburg?
  • Do you have a driver’s license in VA? 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.
