Amanda H.
Portsmouth$7.83/hr  |  < 1 yr experience
I am the eldest sibling of 6 children, five girls and one boy. From the age of 11, I was able to care for them without an adult present after school and during the summer. When I graduated high school at 17, I began caring for them year round until age 19, when I got married. In the end, their ages were 13, 10, 7, 5, and 2, the 5-year-old being my brother. Since getting married, I've babysat for several friends and various people on the military base that we are currently stationed at. I babysat long-term for a sweet baby boy from age 6 weeks to 9 months in my home until his parents were stationed elsewhere. I am able to care for newborns through preteens. I'm qualified to care for your baby or child because my whole life has been centered around child care on a personal level and I can provide the love and attention for your child that you would. I am willing to provide childcare in my home, as I have an 11 month old son. Games, dress-up, sports, crafts, and even homework, whatever he or she needs or enjoys, I'm willing to partake in. I have two pets, a dog and a cat. I am willing to do school pick-up/ drop-off, as I have a safe and reliable personal vehicle and a spotless driving record. I am open to employment, as a full-time nanny or occasional/part-time babysitter.

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in Portsmouth, 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.

Portsmouth 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 Portsmouth? 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 Portsmouth?
  • 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.
