Carly Bell
Lettered Streets, Bellingham$12/hr  |  1 yrs experience
I am a Sophomore at Western Washington University and I am studying Marine Biology. I grew up watching all my little cousins so I learned from a young age that I really love to work with kids. I attended Stadium High School in Tacoma, Wa and there I did YoungLife all 4 years. My senior year I was a student leader for a ministry called YoungLives, this was a place where teen moms could bring their kids and we would watch them while they got to enjoy being teens once or twice a week. We usually had about 4-6 kids ranging from 5 months to 5 years. I also watched one of my YoungLife leaders children as well, they were 3 kids all 3 and under at the time. I am also good with animals and have my own transportation. I don't mind meal prepping or light housework either.

Veronica Grey
Roosevelt, Bellingham$12/hr  |  3 yrs experience
Into the wild and could benefit from some energetically appropriate, ethical, on site live-in household ssistance? Hello and thank you for considering me as I am available to arrive in your household as early as September 21 and can stay as long as necessary :) I have lived in O'ahu, Hawai'i predominantly as a professional LIVE IN nanny who was PRIMARILY an after-school tutor because I have a Bachelor of Arts degree from UCLA and a Master's Degree in the Healing Arts which makes me super mellow, clean, and peaceful. Now I am relocating to Bellingham, Washington as of August 13, and am excited to begin life anew. I am a devotee of Vipassana Meditation (www.dhamma.org), the global movement which strictly adheres to silence / tranquility, vegetarianism, and celibacy. I also have published three #1 international bestsellers on health and wellness. Finally I have won multiple major awards as an environmentalist. All these facts are verifiable online. You wouldn't be just moving a nanny into your home, you would have a steward of the environment with a spiritual slant. Kindly email me for my full resume with numerous references to book me as I don't always receive phone reception. Unless I am at your place :) so you can relax about that, because I prefer a full time live in position, which would not require the hourly rate. We could have a housing exchange for nannying. Thank you, for your consideration. Namaste.

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in Bellingham, 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.

Bellingham 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 Bellingham? 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 Bellingham?
  • 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.
