A little bit about me…
For the past three years I have enjoyed some of the most fruitful and exciting experiences of my life through caring for children. - I have watched children newborn and older. - I have spent some of my time volunteering through several organizations that cater to babies, middle school aged kids and teenagers, so no matter what the age group, I have developed the skills necessary to be sensitive to the needs of more than one child at a time. - I am able to handle meal preparation, waking up and putting to bed, keeping a set schedule, bringing out a child's gifts and talents (some kids enjoy arts and crafts, others want to play tea), reading, creating a stimulating environment for the child(ren) to learn and develop properly in, tidying up and doing laundry! - Building a relationship with the parents is a must for me. As a long term care provider, my desire is that the family feels comfortable and safe. I also like to keep consistency in the child's life by learning the parents discipline patterns and periodically sending mom and dad updates on how the day is going . -I believe a positive attitude is important in any job! Children are sensitive to the environments they are in and I believe it is my duty as a nanny to keep the smiles alive even in fussy moments, rainy days, and sick days. - I have volunteered over 100 hours at xx Hospital so I am well acquainted with handling sick children and paying attention to those extra needs that nursing a child back to health requires. -While in high school, I took a childhood development class that has really sharpened my understanding with young children and teenagers. Every single person goes through developmental stages and I have learned to become sensitive to the different needs and learning patterns that comes with each stage. - In three years I have come across VARIOUS babysitting and nanny experiences, so I have really found my stride. Sometimes it is almost amazing what kid's can discover (especially when learning how to crawl or walk!), but everyday is an adventure and I am ready to take it on! At the end of the day, I am excited about providing childcare and building relationships with people from all backgrounds. Thank you for taking the time to read over my profile and I look forward to hearing from your family! Currently I work for a great family of five. Three kids (2 yr, 5 yr, 7yr) and two awesome military parents! I have had an awesome time nurturing all three kids, playing with the pets (two dogs, one cat and two Guinea pigs) and building a great relationship with the mom and dad. I spent the summer teaching the 2 yr old the basic colors and animals. I taught the 5 yr old the alphabet and addition. I worked with the 7 yr old on his reading skills and since he is such a math wiz, we learned multiplication as well! I have had a blast playing games with all the neighborhood kids outside and building large forts with pillows and blankets inside.

Understand Nanny Responsibilities in DuPont, 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.

DuPont 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 DuPont? 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 DuPont?
  • 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.
