I have been babysitting within my family since I was 10. I also worked for the Girl Scouts as a boating instructor and supervised summer camp staff. Aside from that experience I was an at-risk youth counselor and have a lot of experience with children who have behavioral challenges. I love working with kids and helping them reach developmental milestones.

I have been a nanny for eight years, supporting the family in whatever ways that they have needed me. I have taken care of one boy for five years, from infancy. I have taken care of another boy from infancy until two years old. My last job was taking care of two boys starting at 23 months and 3 and a half years. I have thoroughly enjoyed each assignment. I still keep in touch with these families. The two boys that I last nannied would always cheer when I came in the door. e.

I have a younger brother whom I absolutly ADORE (he is currently 4 years old)! I watch him quite frequently on my own accord with no pay. I had picked him up from daycare at least once a week after I had gotten off my job. We go on many fun adventures to the zoo, museams, down to pike place market. I enjoy the energy kids bring with them, its quite contagious. I also watch on occasion my cousins they are age 6 and 14, and i bring them along to sometimes. After doing this for awhile i realized that I LOVE being around children. They bring such joy into ones life.

Alani H.

She’s great with the kids and reliable. Friendly and honest and plays the piano. Taught my children daily and cooked great meals as well as took them on many adventures. - Elizabeth

Kellye B.

Kellye was amazing with my babies! I had a rough twin pregnancy, and she came in when they were just past 1 month old. She kept the house spotless, kept their laundry up, saw to their every need, and just was a joy to have around. Always a smile on her face and put me at ease immediately, knowing my babies were being taken care of. - Sarah

Makiley O.

She has a gift with kids! She focuses on them and is very loving and caring. The kids sense this from her and love being with her. - Sandee Englund

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in Des Moines, 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.

Des Moines 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 Des Moines? 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 Des Moines?
  • 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.
